A DIY Outdoor Wedding in Sonoma, California

Wine meets surf board in Besse and Michael's wine country wedding, a blend of the couple's Venice Beach surf culture and Sonoma's natural beauty. "There was never a look or a goal that we were aiming toward," the bride says of their September nuptials. "We naturally just chose things that felt right, and felt like us—a good mix of beach and city, sophisticated and creative."
