So often, the wedding is where the heart is. And for New Yorkers Karli and Christina, their collective heart had been firmly lodged at Murrieta’s Well in Livermore, CA, since they first saw it on a wine tasting trip.
“There was a period of time where Christina was living in California for a few months, and when I came to visit her she took me wine tasting,” Karli recalled. ” The first stop was Murrieta’s Well, and as we walked up the stairs, there was a rehearsal for a wedding. We had such a great time that later once we became engaged it was an easy choice of where we wanted to get married.”
The photos clearly show how much joy and fun Karli, Christina and their friends and family experienced on their wedding day. There was pre-ceremony champagne, pull-ups on the rafters, bouquet softball, some wild dance-floor antics, In-N-Out burgers, and, through it all, lots of happy tears.
“I think my favorite memory from the wedding day was during the reception,” Christina said. “The dance floor was never empty, and you really saw two families from two complete opposite sides of the country come together. If you didn’t know any better, you would have thought they all had known each other for years.”
