As proposals drop throughout the city (more couples get engaged between Thanksgiving and Valentine's Day than any other time of the year), we're pleased to announce the launch of the newest section of, The 7x7 Wedding Resource. Here, you'll find weekly blog posts to help you plan your Bay Area nuptials as well as our list of the most trusted vendors in the region. We'll also be featuring photos from real Bay Area weddings (we already have two beautiful weddings to show you from Sonoma and St. Helena)  - so check back in a few weeks to find out how to submit your wedding to the site.

Our weddings editor, Mary Jo Bowling, has written her inaugural post on the 5 best sites for a barn wedding in Wine Country. Enjoy! And congrats all those  newly engaged couples out there.
