Ranch At Lake Sonoma view

Andra & Nick’s wedding was in beautiful wine country at Geyserville Inn for the ceremony. After the ceremony we headed to the Ranch at Lake Sonoma wedding reception which has an amazing panoramic view overlooking Lake Sonoma.  The day started at a house they rented in Geyserville up above the bluffs overlooking wine country.  Pre-photos were shot there as well as lst look.   It was then time to travel to Geyserville Inn for the Ceremony overlooking wine country’s beautiful vineyards.  After we were finished with some fun bridal party photos at Geyserville Inn  we left to the reception site at the Lake .  The reception site includes a rustic barn and they decided to dine outside overlooking Lake Sonoma for a beautiful sunset fall evening.  The view on the other side were the equine corrals with the sweet horses watching over the reception site.

When we first arrived to the Ranch At Lake Sonoma Wedding reception there were two donkeys to greet you with saddlebags handing out beer to the guests!  

Sign in Board at wedding

These two were adorable and loved adventure.  They vacation all over the world and that is what brought them together.   They used a globe for a sign in board. The table seating chart was made out of wine corks with paper airplane’s with guest names to depict which destination table they were to sit at ( so original, I loved it)!   These were all destinations they had travelled together.

The Ranch At Lake Sonoma wedding receception has all the rustic charm with beautiful candlelight inside the barn with a sweet little table for their adventures and photos of their two pups that didn’t get to attend.  They also had a beautiful remembrance table of family members who had passed.

When going inside for the reception festivities they were doing a lot of traditional activities from their home countries.  They had pastries and families were singing songs, a chair dance up in the air and even a hat dance.  They had a special dance where all the guests encircled the room in like a twisted circle and went in and out of the barn.  Needless to say, it was a very fun reception with a lot of humor!
