Sandra and Brian met on, but after exchanging a few emails, they realized that they had met in the past and he had even been to her house!

Sandra had just finished grad school in the Northeast and was embarking on a two month road trip across the U.S. As she drove, the couple exchanged phone calls and emails, and decided to meet in the middle – Vegas – for their first date.  

The bride and groom are big food and wine fans (they even make their own wine) so they decided to host their wedding at Barndiva in Healdsburg. Brian and Sandra painted wine bottles with chalkboard paint for kids and guests to write on, and gave out monogramed wooden spoons and cutting boards as favors. The newlyweds also celebrated both of their cultural backgrounds by incorporating parts of Brian's Jewish religion and performing a traditional Asian tea ceremony as well.
