One of my favorites from this weekend's mini sessions: Valerie, Brent and Josie!

Ann and Tanner are such a beautiful couple, we couldn’t wait to share these vintage wedding photos and portraits from their Viansa Winery wedding! Read on for some of our favorite bride and groom portraits from this lovely wine country wedding day.

These two are so in love, we can still feel it just by looking at these pictures again! When Ann told us that her dream wedding was a ‘marriage between vintage and modern’, we knew we would love being their Sonoma wedding photographer from the start!

We had some fun when we began working with the wedding party. The vine covered trellises and walls provided a great background texture to shoot the family’s vintage wedding photos and portraits. Viansa Winery is located at the entrance to Sonoma Valley, less than an hour north from the Golden Gate Bridge. The property sits high upon a hilltop, providing breathtaking views of Sonoma Valley, vineyards and wetlands.

This vintage wedding photo of Ann and Tanner nestled in a corner of the Viansa property is one of our favorites!

A little dance is always a requirement for a Tinywater wedding day!

Ann and Tanner were great sports when we were moving them from different locations to get a variety of couple portraits.

We were absolutely swooning over Ann’s wedding gown! The layers upon layers of ruffles were stunning and moved so nicely with every twist and turn she took! The accessories she paired with it were simple yet elegant – a floral netted hair piece and vintage inspired crystal necklace. And who said you have to wear heels on your wedding day? Her off-white flats were a perfect addition to her outfit, and we loved the combination!

The natural lighting, vines, and beautiful couple made these vintage wedding photos a breeze to capture. We couldn’t ask for more from the bride and groom and from one of our favorite Sonoma venues, Viansa Winery.

We’ll leave you with one last vintage wedding photo of Ann in her incredible dress! We loved every minute of being Ann and Tanner’s Sonoma wedding photographer here at Viansa Winery, and we hope they enjoy their photos as much as we enjoyed taking them!

janice - I love it! cool

We are so excited to share that Dani and Kelly’s awesome backyard wedding has been featured on The Huffington Post. Click over to the article Backyard Bliss: A DIY Guide To Getting Married At Home to check it out!

As Ann and Tanner’s Sonoma wedding photographer, we moved into the tented pavilion at the always gorgeous Viansa Winery for their reception. Their wedding colors of pale yellow, cream, and off-white paired perfectly with the elegant and larger than life white tent nestled here in the lush Sonoma, California’s wine country.

Ann was a very hands on bride when planning her wedding. With the help of her family and friends, they tackled the floral arrangements and table settings all on their own by hand! The centerpieces were vintage vases filled with crystal twigs, all collected by the family. Ann said she was very inspired by Anthropologie and an idea of ‘vintage marries modern’. Her hard work definitely paid off – everything turned out just as she imagined!

We love the texture the pleated tent creates for a ceiling,especially paired with those elaborate crystal chandeliers. If you’re going for a simple elegance, look no further than Viansa Winery – it is one of our favorite venues as a Sonoma wedding photographer.

We loved the way the reception was set up with a large dance floor in the middle of the tent. It was perfect for us as Ann and Tanner’s Sonoma wedding photographer when we were capturing photos of their very special first dance as husband and wife.

It was a blast being this couple’s Sonoma wedding photographer! These guys loved getting out on the dance floor with all of their family and friends to celebrate their love. It’s so easy for us to capture both classic and funny photos with couple’s as fantastic as Ann and Tanner.

As the sun set below the vine covered hills in Sonoma, the twinkle lights shined on, illuminating the Viansa Winery tented pavilion for this fun reception. It was nice to have various light to work with as the couple’s Sonoma wedding photographer.

The chandeliers set a different mood once they turned on and the candles were lit. Ann and Tanner’s cake was simple and pretty, adorned with fresh garden roses in varying shades of pink.

Isn’t this building just gorgeous? We love the vine covered walls, it really evokes the lush wine country setting we played in all day as Ann and Tanner’s Sonoma wedding photographer. Next post we will share a few of the vintage style portraits we captured of the beautiful couple!

Viansa Winery in Sonoma, California is one of the most beautiful locations in all of Northern California. Viansa Winery describes their location best, “Viansa sits majestically upon a hilltop, providing breathtaking views of Sonoma Valley, vineyards, olive groves and wetlands. When you visit Viansa, you will feel like you are in Italy. All of our buildings and surroundings are Tuscan inspired. As in Italy, here at Viansa it is all about the marriage between great food, great wine and great people.” You can imagine how ecstatic we were when we arrived at this Viansa Winery oasis for Ann & Tanner’s wedding day! We loved being able to peek over the grapevines to catch some seriously incredible views of the landscape.

Ann and Tanner chose Viansa Winery for its destination wedding feel, which also created a more intimate setting for their selective guest list of 50. Ann was quite a DIY bride – creating all of the floral arrangements and decor herself with the help of her family and friends! She gathered a lot of her inspiration from poking around Anthropologie stores and collecting vintage vases and just drawing from her own personal style. Their wedding colors were a palette of pale yellow, soft cream, and off-white, pairing perfectly with the soft lusciousness of the Sonoma County landscape.

Ann was such a fun bride to work with! We loved sharing a laugh with her and her family before the ceremony.

Tanner and his mother sharing a quiet moment minutes as the ceremony begins inside the intimate Viansa Winery wine cellar.

Ann was absolutely gorgeous as she made her way down the aisle. The sun trickled through the doors into the wine cellar just perfectly to capture everyone’s entrance into the cellar for the ceremony.

This wine cellar room created the cozy and personal feel Ann was looking for. The best part about this smaller venue is that all guests in attendance feel included.

Following Ann and Tanner’s wine cellar ceremony everyone made their way towards Viansa Winery’s lovely white tented pavilion for dancing and reception fun! We also took some amazing portraits of the couple and their wedding party against the breathtaking backdrop of Sonoma County’s landscape.

Emma - WOW! beautiful and what a fantastic venue!
