Once J + D found Barndiva, they knew they’d found the place. It has separate space for a ceremony, dancing, and dinner. It has amazing food. It’s right in the middle of the magical Healdsburg, California. Despite having to envision how it would all look come summer when they booked in November, there was no question. Can’t argue with that, can ya? (Especially after scrolling through the images by Danielle Poff Photography!)
They had an e-sesh with Danielle beforehand and the second those photos came back, they were 100% confident they’d made the right choice! You guys, booking an engagement shoot too is always a good idea.
This bouquet is the stuff of dreams! It’s got garden roses, dahlias, sweet pea, chocolate cosmos, yarrow, astrantia, + jasmine with centerpieces of honeysuckle, hawthorn, foxgloves, and blackberries. Jenn says, Our flowers were one of my most favorite things about our wedding. Studio Mondine did a simply stunning job. Everyone raved about how beautiful the flowers were and my bouquet took my breath away when I saw it.
Jenn says, I cannot recommend getting a wedding planner more highly. The entire process was so much smoother and less stressful and the day was completely stress free—it was worth the investment for us and I would absolutely do it again. We had chosen a venue before we started interviewing planners (which is very important because the first question the planners will ask you is what weekend your wedding is!)… Be sure to pick somewhere where the staff is kind and responsive—you don’t want to be dealing with difficult personalities at your wedding. Barndiva’s staff was extremely welcoming and very present on the day of the wedding, which made everything run more smoothly. Find your venue first and everything else falls into place!
Fun fact: Their cutie nieces ran up to them while they were cutting the cake because they just couldn’t wait. (Understandable.)
