Kathy + Matt | Married! – Calistoga Ranch Wedding

This is Kathy and Matt’s gorgeous wedding at the fabulous Calistoga Ranch. You might remember them from their Engagement Session a couple months back. It was a great day in wine country even if it was a bit toasty. 🙂 They really have exquisite taste and put on a beautiful event.

On to the pics!

Kathy’s Maggie Sottero gown from J’aime Bridal. I hope I did it justice!

Matt chose to have his sisters represent him on his side of the bridal party. I loved how close they all seemed and the care the sisters took in getting him ready for his bride.

Look at that sky!

I love vineyards!

This room was spectacular!

Now that’s how you show off a cake!

I love this look I caught when they thought no one was watching.

Matt’s sisters gave him a good roasting, with love of course. The title of this if you can’t read it is “Top 5 things you found out too late”. I think my favorite was the “Owns a Joey Fatone” doll. 🙂
