A Handcrafted Wedding in Sonoma County, California

A professional matchmaker marries her perfect match at a wine country fete filled with romantic, Great Gatsby-esque details.

The couple set their wedding date for August 19, 2012, and invited 100 guests to join them deep in wine country, just miles from where the bride was raised. The bride's mother handcrafted nearly every detail of the couple's big day, from their floral arrangements to sweet treats that capped off the night.

With an inside connection at Chalk Hill—Kimberly's sister works there—the couple's choice of venue was an easy one. Nestled into Sonoma County, the estate "is not only well known for great wine, but also has incredible views of the valley," Kimberly says.
