Whoever says long distance relationships can’t be amazing was wrong in this case.
Monique and Ryan fell head over heels for each other from the first time they met through mutual friends.
They lived over 200 miles from each other and made plans to visit every weekend for a year.
They just couldn’t stand to be apart.
After Ryan’s proposal they were inseparable and instantly knew they wanted a wedding in the special place of Sonoma.
Also, as seen in the photos their blended families also hit it off.
One of their first “to do’s” was after getting engaged was to hire an amazing planner.
Quintana Events took their dream celebration and turned it into reality.
The theme was italian inspired with a touch of Elegant California glam.
They wanted to transport their guests to a night to remember.
Personal touches were brought throughout with custom cork table place cards, handmade menu’s, and amazing florals adding life to the decor.
Her mom also made the cake, which turned out beautifully.
Her final dress was her second dress option. Hard to believe, but it is true.
Her first dress was ruined. I think the second dress is perfection!
