This is a widely searched question, who has the perfect answer? There are so many elements that go into this, for example what style of a wedding are you visualizing? Being a Santa Rosa Wedding photographer I would love to offer you a few tips.
Look at some wedding photos that you LOVE, then ask yourself why do you love them. What is speaking to you in that image.
If its a Wine Country setting your looking for one of my favorites is at the venue shown above, https://www.vintnersinn.com/ I just love Vintners Inn, the bridal room is beautiful and it offers all the elements of a wine country affair.
My other favorite is https://www.vsattui.com/ V Sattui is just a stunning place settled back in the hills of wine country. This location has gorgeous backdrops everywhere you look. If you haven't vistited yet go check them out!
Maybe you want something a little more Country themed, this stunning image above was taken at the beautiful The Red Barn Ranch http://www.redbarnranchevents.com/#!/page_home
This location definitely holds true to its name, the red barn gives a great backdrop for your first dance and cake cutting moments.
Another option for the rustic themed wedding is Kenwood Rach of Sonoma http://www.kenwoodranchofsonoma.com/
The owners here are just amazing, giving you the full service experience.
And lastly I just love all things Crane Melon Barn https://www.sonomacounty.com/culinary/crane-melon-barn This majestic 12-acre property is where the original Crane melons have been grown and sold for more than 80 years by six generations of the Crane family.
And who doesn't love a back yard wedding!! This stunning view is off of a bedroom deck, over looking a beautifully manicured backyard. Do you have someone who's property offers everything you need for your special day?
Most importantly your venue should give you the style and feel that best fits your unique personality. Then let your photographer capture it in a way that shows all the elements you have incorporated that make it YOURS!
I love being a wedding photographer in Santa Rosa, we are surrounded by beauty! We have options for Beach weddings, Golf course ceremonies, and everything in between. Options are endless and the choice is yours!
