Kara + Chris’s Sonoma wedding is absolutely darling. From the soft sage and cream color palette to their sweets table covered in delicious pies and handmade apple butter favors. And want to know what else is neat? They sourced all of their vendors locally, from Sonoma County and the Bay Area, including their talented photographer, Em the Gem.
Kara’s bridal bouquet recipe: heirloom roses, hydrangeas, dahlias, amaranth, scabiosa seed pods, geraniums, and succulents.
Love that one of Kara’s bridesmaids was also one of our recent brides! Remember Melanie from the YEAH! Free Wedding?
Their music: Kara and her bridal party walked down the aisle to “Going to California” by Led Zeppelin preformed by Joey Curtin, and had their first dance to”Calgary”by Bon Iver.
The wedding favors were all handmade by a close family friend. They made delicious apple butter from scratch! They picked apple butter in honor of Kara’s late grandmother, who’s specialty was apple butter.
