A Country Garden Wedding at Park Winters
Alison and Mike are one of those couples that can make anyone feel comfortable. Their infectious smiles and lust for life make their chemistry so obviously clear. And it radiates throughout the day! They were young when they first met at a college house party in the summer of 2007. This was where their friendship formed. Since Mike was a couple of years older than Alison, he left college early and moved to San Francisco. Alison then did a year abroad in South America. They ended up reconnecting after Alison was finished with college in 2010 and 7 years later, Mike proposed on a hilltop overlooking Rome, Italy. An added touch was the Italian acoustic guitar player… so romantic!
It was a beautiful August day for Alison and Mike’s wedding. They had lovely details, great friends, and beautiful scenery. Their venue, Park Winters, is a luxury country oasis in Northern California. While the girls were all getting ready, they busted out an acapella version of Shania Twain’s “Man, I Feel Like A Woman.” Mostly because they were already talking about the dance party that was happening later on in the night.
The ceremony was in front of a beautiful sunken garden. Knowing they were having their ceremony outside in August, they had their programs made in a way where guests could fan themselves if needed. Dinner was out on the patio in front of the barn which made the perfect setting for a meal. Inside the barn is where the live band was and also where that dance party happened…and boy was it a dance party!
