John and Kate minus 8
Weekend before last, my cousin Kate married her new hubby John at the V. Sattui Winery in St. Helena (Sonoma Valley). There were surprisingly zero jokes or comments about their unfortunately paired names. Score one for them!
Kate and John are both spirited people (in more ways that one… John and his groomsmen danced down the aisle to Sinatra and then took a swig from a flask at the end.) I got a very shoddy video of part of it.
The wedding site was absolutely gorgeous. They had the ceremony outside in the courtyard, and the reception was in the adjoining barrel room that feels like a medieval castle.
My mom, my cousin Max, Erik and I all drove up together and it was fun to spend some good quality time with them, along with Matt and Vanessa who met us there.
This wedding is up there amongst the winners for setting and ambiance.
