I had the honor of shooting a sweet elopement at the Kenwood Inn this week. This beautiful couple was visiting from Ohio and designed a private ceremony that was down-to-the-detail perfect. The Kenwood Inn is the perfect location for the intimate ceremony and honeymoon combined. The grounds and rooms are romantic and secluded and even with many guests, it felt like we had the entire inn to ourselves.
The day was bright and warm and sunny , I couldn’t have imagined a better day to show off the wine country! After their ceremony we explored the grounds of the beautiful Kenwood Inn, making some beautiful portraits of the stunning couple. After a few portraits their town car arrived and whisked them off to their 1st wine tasting at Chateau St. Jean. I love this idea of taking a private tour of the wineries as the “reception” and SO fun to have a driver, so you can enjoy the wine and views responsibly, and get wine tasting tips from someone in the know. After their wine tasting, I let them enjoy the rest of their day as they trotted off to their next winery for another tasting and a picnic lunch.
I’m really proud of these images (due in no small part to the gorgeous models and location) and I really hope they help the couple remember their special time in the Sonoma Wine Country.
