Hope you’re having a wonderful Memorial Day! I’m loving every last detail of Paula and Scott’s gorgeous winery wedding in Sonoma and I know you will, too! You might recognize their wedding as it was featured on SMP, earlier this year. Laura Monfredini, of eLLe PHOTOGRAPHY was kind to share lots of new photos of their wedding with us today. And, for an extra special treat, I’ll be sharing Paula and Scott’s incredibly gorge e*sesh tomorrow – the couple chose to visit a horse farm in Napa and the results are nothing short of amazing, I promise.
Says photographer Laura Monfredini, “Paula & Scott met ‘the old fashioned’ way – in a bar in San Francisco one night when Paula happened to be out after work. At the time, she was only in San Francisco on a temporary basis for a summer internship and she wasn’t looking for anything serious. As they say, sometimes love finds you when you aren’t looking, because by the end of that night in the bar, she was smitten with Scott. And by the end of the summer, she decided to give a long-distance romance with Scott a shot. He was smitten too, and a year and a half later when she moved back to San Francisco, he proposed. Their wedding took place at the beautiful Viansa Winery in Sonoma, California. The setting was a perfect mix of rustic elegance, complete with a tent housing crystal chandeliers.
The ceremony took place in the barrel room, and Paula walked down the aisle to harpists playing “Here Comes the Sun,” which is their song.
After the wedding, the couple said their favorite part was dancing with their families. The two families hadn’t met before the wedding because Paula’s family lives in Brazil, and Scott’s in Oregon. During the reception, Paula changed into a short, Kate Spade dress so she could boogie with everyone else!”
Don’t forget to stop by tomorrow to see Paula and Scott’s incredibly romantic e*sesh at a Napa horse farm. I’m telling you – it’s one of my favorite engagement sessions I’ve ever seen. 😉
