Rikin & Shweta's beautiful wedding at Viansa Winery, Sonoma was as ravishing as it was elegant.
A day before we shot the Sangeet & Mehandi ceremony at the Le Meridien San Francisco. On the wedding day we started with the getting ready session at the same place and then drove to the Sonoma winery for the wedding.The wedding ceremony area had breathtaking views of the Sonoma valley as the backdrop. Ceremony was followed by Cocktail hour on the winery terrace. At this time the terrace had a beautiful light with golden glow cast by setting sun, a delight for any photographer. The reception was in the white gazebo meticulously and tastefully decorated by the winery staff. You would see all these amazing details in the images below.
