Wedding at Dawn Ranch in Guerneville

This was our first wedding of 2016 and our first wedding at Dawn Ranch in Guerneville. Such a great way to kick off the wedding season! Dawn Ranch is located in a small town on the banks of the Russian River just before you hit the California coast. It's not far from the Bay Area, maybe a 1 to 1.5 hour drive. The venue property is 15 beautiful acres of redwoods, apple trees, and grassy meadows with cute cabins to boot. We met Andrew and Rebecca at their cabin to shoot some last minute getting ready details. The natural light filled the space so nicely that it was hard to not keep shooting. After a quick first look and some family portraits, Andrew and Rebecca exchanged vows surrounded by their friends and family. It was all fun and laughter from there on out.  After dinner and drinks, the party moved over to pool area for deserts and dancing.

We loved this one, the venue, the light, our clients, and all of the good vibes.
