Villa Riposo is an exclusive villa which was a new AirBNB turned wedding venue, and I’m so happy our team was able to be a part of its grand debut. With beautiful vine covered architecture, sweeping mountain views, and lots of lush greenery, it’s perfect for a smaller wedding. If you want a beautiful vineyard that provides all of the upscale Italian vibes with lots of photo locations spread around in a peaceful location, this might be your spot. This Intimate Vineyard Wedding at Villa Riposo Winery was one for the books.
Fitting for this couple to have gotten engaged at another winery, right?! They got engaged at the gorgeous Chateau St. Jean up in Sonoma, California. And they met in the most Bay Area way possible … Bumble! I have a secret soft spot for my fellow internet meeting couples because I met my own husband on Tinder 7 years ago. 🙂
After Michelle and Matt postponed their wedding by almost a whole year (thanks covid), it was time for them to finally get married. Surrounded by their closest family and friends (and the rest on Zoom), they had an emotional microwedding. With a tearful first look, eclectic mix-matched ceremony furniture, and perfect weather, they finally got to say their vows to one another. I’m absolutely loving all this post-vaccination love. Everyone has a newfound appreciation for gathering (even in small numbers) and it really makes weddings that much more special. Can’t wait to shoot another wedding at Villa Riposo!
And of course, wishing these two the happiest of lives together!
