Meagan, Robert, and their English bulldog Gibson could not have found a more wonderfully bucolic spot to tie the knot than Sonoma County's Dawn Ranch Lodge.

Nestled amongst apple trees, grassy meadows, and fruit and vegetable gardens on the banks of the Russian River, Dawn Ranch set the scene for an intimate, homespun wedding with vintage details.


White linen cloths topped the tables while signs were adorably handmade, and a rustic barrel took the place of an altar during the al fresco ceremony. Instead of the standard guest book, the couple opted to have their guests sign a keepsake quilt.


The evening's ending was just as sweet: Sebastopol's Patisserie Angelica, whose chef has studied pastry in France and Belgium, provided the pastries as libations were served to toast to the happy newlyweds.
