Annie and Ben’s Ramekins wedding was a classic Sonoma celebration of love, family, and food. This adorable wedding venue is nestled just a short distance from Historic Sonoma Plaza, and looks like a European fairytale. They decided on seeing each other before the ceremony, so we went to the sister property, The General’s Daughter, for memorable images. Ben was adorable seeing his bride for the first time. He literally covered his mouth and was speechless. After some portraits, guests arrived back at Ramekins and they shared their vows within the intimate courtyard. The reception took place both in Great Room and outdoors in the rustic European inspired courtyard. There were many tears that night as well as an epic dance party. From Annie, ” We met four years ago on Match.com and hit it off immediately. We love to vacation in Wine Country and Ben went to Sonoma State, so we thought it appropriate to look for a venue there. Ramekins was something I saw online and thought that it may be bit like a hotel patio and I was not interested in that much, but on a rainy day, when I took my parents and sister to see the other venue we liked, we stopped by and popped our heads in and were blown away – it was incredible. If I could aesthetically design an outdoor space, Ramekins would be pretty darn close so we are so excited about having our wedding there.” Congratulations to Annie and Ben!
