A Barndiva wedding is a journey into a world where rustic charm meets Michelin-star sophistication. Located in downtown Healdsburg, Sonoma, Barndiva’s dynamic use of space takes wedding guests on a memorable journey. 

Lena and Matt got ready down the road with their respective parties, and, forgoing a first look, the couple saw each other for the first time at the altar. 

The ceremony unfolded under a living structure of heritage trees, braided together over years of growth and reminiscent of grape vines. Behind them was an antiqued corten steel wall which leant an industrial chic vibe as a contrast to the natural beauty of the arbor.

Dinner followed, a culinary masterpiece in the patio garden, under a vast arched trellis of wisteria adorned with bistro lights. The toasts ended with a traditional banzai toast to honor the groom’s father. From there, the party moved into the art gallery where bespoke cocktails and carefully selected wines from the region flowed along with everyone dancing.

The art gallery’s rustic, shabby chic vibe made a lovely backdrop for the bridesmaids’ floral, color coordinated dresses. Lena was stunning in a classic and minimalist Suzanne Neville gown. She elegantly accessorized with earrings reminiscent of plumeria flowers as a reference to Hawaiian roots. 

It was a lively and animated party. In place of a guest book wedding-goers signed their best wishes on bottles of wine, to be enjoyed by the newlyweds during a future anniversary. 

It was a treat to capture the magic of this night at Barndiva. The amazing food and drink, intimate and unique spaces, and overall flow of the evening were memorable and exceeedingly photogenic. I hope to be back under that arbor again soon!
