Romantic Sonoma wedding at Jacuzzi Vineyards: Jenna + Walker
No matter what your theme or style is, if you want to make sure your wedding oozes romance, look no further than Jenna + Walker’s nuptials at Jacuzzi Vineyards. Why, you ask? When we first asked Jenna about their wedding style, she said, we dreamed of having a whimsical, elegant, vintage, garden party amongst the vines. The vines in Sonoma, no less. What more could you ask for?
Thanks to the talented Julie Kay Kelly Photography for passing this along!
Pretty, pretty! The blush + rose gold engagement ring that Walker surprised his bride with when he proposed in Napa ended up being major inspiration for the day itself. Their color palette was blush, gold, green, white, cream, and accents of peach + ballet slipper pink, silver, and rose gold.
Jenna’s fave memories…
1. Holding Walker’s hand and hearing him receipt his vowels to me was pure magic.
2. Holding Walker’s hand as we walked into the vineyard for dinner and just being absolutely blown away by pure beauty. My vision not only came to life, it was better than I ever imagined.

My florist Meredith Law of M. Designs is the definition of a creative genius. I fell in love with her and her work and trusted her implicitly with the flowers she decided to choose for my bouquet. I specifically asked for soft timeless blooms that had movement to them, and garden roses were a must. I wanted the bouquet to be over sized with an open wild style. Soft tone on tone was the color scheme. I wanted the florals to represent wine country and the season, so I was open to Meredith selecting the best seasonal blooms and greens from the local market. My bouquet as well as my mother’s was finished with excess material from my dress.
Such a sweet setup, no?
Our wedding planner Stephanie Cole referred Walker and I to Julie Kay Kelly Photography. We immediately researched her work, and it conveyed the soft, elegant vibe we were seeking. Julie and I then connected offline and chatted candidly for almost an hour! She was fun, talented, calming, and charismatic. Walker overheard the whole conversation and knew I fell in love. We were confident that Julie would bring out the best versions of ourselves in photographs.

As for their biggest hurdles planning? Napa and Sonoma Valleys have lots of small inns, so securing room blocks was super tough, especially in July. They ended up renting out whole hotels in Yountville. Jenna also recommends aiming high when planning the guest list to plan for surprises. She says, We planned for 120 guests at most, and ended up at 140! As guest count really determines the budget, we recommend aiming on the high-side when planning as a couple extra people will greatly amplify costs. Key learning: Everyone wants to go on vacation!
Congratulations, you two!
