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.

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.
