Not much can beat wine country in the summertime, and Rachel and Chris' August wedding at Triple S Ranch in Calistoga was no exception! These two are some of the kindest individuals I've come across and they are both exceptionally clever - they're scientists and engineers. Talk of being an astronaut in their household is common language, but despite their amazing careers, they are incredibly compassionate people. Foregoing a traditional registry, they made a donation to Planned Parenthood instead.
Triple S Ranch is the perfect wedding location and has a victorian home on the property which was perfect for the bride and groom and a few family members to stay in, and then on the rest of the property they have many cottages for additional guests. With amazing views, a kitchen and a pool, there is not much reason to leave the property over your wedding weekend. It's a great spot to host multiple events, which is exactly what Rachel and Chris did. On Friday they hosted a great welcome dinner party with Pizza Politana cooking wood fired Neopolitan style pizza's and then on Saturday their guests were treated to a buffet by A La Heart with a post-wedding pool party, including a rainbow unicorn floaty. They kept their day very organic and simplistically beautiful - focusing on lots of green like lush olive garlands, hops and fun pops like king protea! I am so excited to share their day!
Congrats you two!!
