Total Basset Case: A Weekend in Sonoma

May 25, 2016

A Weekend in Sonoma

We had been looking forward to this past weekend for a VERY long time.  Neither Mister nor I had ever been to Sonoma or anywhere in wine country but had heard nothing but great things from everyone that had.  
Even though I couldn't drink any delicious wine, it was still a beautiful place to visit and we had a fabulous time.
We were there for our best friend Whitney's wedding and had the best time celebrating the beautiful couple.  You may remember we went to Dallas in January for their couples shower and I was in Austin a few weeks ago for her bachelorette.  (Yes, if you do the math I was with child on that trip...)

So I made Mister promise we could go back to Sonoma (and Austin) when I could have wine ;)

We started Friday off with the rehearsal.  The wedding and reception were on top of a hill at a winery.  Talk about breathtaking.  
Kunde Family Winery (rumor is an episode of the Bachelor was filmed inside of that cave.)
 I had no idea Sonoma was so hilly but it is and it really contributes to the beauty of the area.
We spent the remainder of the day visiting and having tastings at other wineries (well, you know, I wasn't doing any tastings...). I loved how unique each winery was and could not get over how many there were!
Friday night was the rehearsal at Dry Creek Kitchen...again a beautiful setting and delicious food to boot.
Saturday was the big day!!
We spent the morning having fun, getting ready and taking it easy before the big event.
Although it was windy and chilly during the ceremony, it could not have been more beautiful and perfect.  
The gorgeous couple.  Whitney looked absolutely stunning! 
 Whitney did the most amazing job planning every single last detail and it showed.  
The whole evening was perfection!

Sunday we took it easy and then headed into San Francisco to do some exploring but that's a post for later this week ;)

Ah pregnancy - a reminder in how to have fun without alcohol ;-) This area is high on my list of places to visit too - what a gorgeous spot for a wedding.

These pictures are absolutely gorgeous. I'm not even a drinker, but I want to visit wine country.

Whitney was stunning, the vineyard is stunning and YOU are stunning! Seriously I think you could spend years in Sonoma and not visit everything. I want to go back with you!
