Julie & Jeff | Relais du Soleil Wedding | Glen Ellen, CA

Julie and Jeff were married last week at the Relais du Soleil ranch in Glen Ellen. This secluded and rustic ranch in the middle of Sonoma wine country makes for a spectacular wedding retreat. The couple’s chow Agnes made another special appearance as the ring bearer, while the wedding took place underneath the huge spread of an oak tree. The wedding was completed with an on-site BBQ, a bluegrass/folk band, and then a raging dance party to 80′s pop. It was an intimate, personal, and absolutely beautiful wedding. Thanks to Nancy Tsai for her help as a second photographer as well. See some of my favorites below.

The couple also ditched the traditional wedding cake in favor of a candy bar. It was a bit hit, with a line of enthralled adults and children all night waiting for their fix. Even I was even able to rekindle my own long dormant relationship with Jelly Bellies. Fun!

    Love these photos! What time of year was this? I’m considering Relais du Soleil for my own wedding.
