Besse and Michael's wine country wedding—full of handmade and vintage touches—was inspired by the surf culture of Venice Beach and Sonoma's natural beauty.

"Dessert was especially exciting," the bride says. The couple ordered every cake flavor that Susie Cakes offers, "which turned out to be eight different cakes that we displayed on a bunch of cake stands I collected." And because Besse so adores the baker's frosting, "we also had four different types of frosting piped into shot glasses for frosting shots," she says. Photo: Noah Hawthorne Photography
