One couple throws a relaxed wedding featuring local food and wine, and beautiful garden-picked flowers.

After asking for Bess's parents' and grandmother's blessing, Kristin (left) proposed at a ranch and working farm owned by a close friend. "When we were then offered the ranch for the wedding, we were delighted!" says Kristin. "We couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else." Kristin wore a vintage French lace dress by San Francisco designer Suzanne Hanley of Atelier des Modistes; Bess wore Vera Wang trousers and a Vince blouse.
