Holly + Matt {Destination Wine Country Wedding} Arista Winery, Healdsburg, CA



High school sweethearts and Minnesota natives, Holly and Matt, had their dream, destination wine county wedding at Arista Winery in Healdsburg. Arista Winery is a small, family owned winery so it was fitting that they chose it for their intimate event which included their closest relatives. Matt's grandfather officiated the ceremony. Great food and wine were definitely the focus. The amazing dinner was provided by Ramekins and was paired with Arista wines. Holly and Matt both love to explore new restaurants around where they live as well share a passion for travel and adventure. So why not a gorgeous wedding in wine country? Both families were so gracious and sweet, I was hoping they would adopt me!


My day started filming the guys playing golf. I would do that over and over again!


One of my favorite shots of the day is the ring shot…I mean was that wine barrel from Minnesota put there on purpose?! Thanks so much to Cara from Cara Lemmage Photographs for pointing that out! Also thanks to Aaron Lee for filming it perfectly.


Sidebar: Brides in MN: I will film a wedding MN anytime. I'm convinced that everyone in your state is super nice. I would especially like to work with Cara Lemmage Photographs again! Brides in CA: I'm pretty sure Cara could be convinced to work here again. Just say'n.


This was yet, another flawless wedding from A Savvy Event. Meren Dehaze did a fabulous job of bringing Holly and Matt's dream wedding to life. Serioulsy, Meren, where did you find that barrel?!


This film premiered one month later at Holly and Matt's Minnesota reception! I hope they enjoy it for years to come.


Special thanks to Aaron Lee for being my additional filmmaker that day. I really appreciate your talent and eye.
