Everything about this wedding was hot…the bride, the groom, the guests and of course the weather, all 97 degrees HOT. Lori and Brian traveled up from San Francisco to the Calistoga, CA to get married in one of the most beautiful venues around, Hans Fahden Vineyards. They envisioned a fabulous wine country wedding surrounded by the glorious sunny weather the region is known for. And that’s exactly what they got plus a few extra degrees. The folks at Hans Fahden Vineyards were well prepared with cool drinks and parasols which accented the beautiful grounds perfectly. Following the ceremony and cocktails, the couple and their guest retreated to the cool and romantic wine cave for dinner.

Here’s a sneak preview of their wedding photos:

The parasols not only provided shade but really enhanced an already beautiful Hans Fahden Winery.

Hans Fahden Cave Wedding Reception

There is no better dinner reception setting on a hot summer day than a wine cave.

I love that there’s another couple being romantic while Lori and Brian kiss during their first dance.

Stay tuned as the entire gallery will be up in a few days.
