Nikki and Ashley

I’m celebrating the end of a sweet wedding season by sharing a few highlights from Ashley and Nikki’s wedding. The couple met in Texas and have been┬átogether for ten years. On a perfectly hot July afternoon they tied the knot on the lawn at the Madrona Manor in Healdsburg. There was not a dry eye around during their incredibly touching and emotional ceremony. During dinner Nikki surprised Ashley with the gift of a mesmerizing flamenco dancer who wowed everyone with a tantalizing swirl of scarves, castanets and live guitar. Their cake was decorated with succulents from Ashley’s garden which added a nice personal touch.

Madrona Manor

Mikyong and David’s Fall wedding was intimate and elegant, mostly family and dear friends gathered together at the lovely Madrona Manor in Healdsburg. The nicest thing about small weddings is that everyone can relax and enjoy each other’s company without feeling rushed. I was so happy to have more time to focus on some of the lovely landscape and flowers. Thank you Mikyong and David for having me there with you!
