Micaela + Kai
Running Rabbit Ranch & Vineyard, Santa Rosa, CA.
The Love Story: It was young love when Micaela and Kai met on the first day of high school in Santa Rosa. “We dated for a few months in the ninth grade then found each other again right before graduation,” the bride recalls. “After nine years of travel, living abroad and schooling, we finally got engaged in Costa Rica.” When it came time to plan their wedding in Sonoma, they set out to find a unique location that would make for a relaxed, simple and modern event. “The second we stepped foot on the grounds at Running Rabbit Ranch & Vineyard we looked at each other with tears in our eyes,” she says. “It was perfect. Running Rabbit incorporated everything we had wanted for our wedding day: a ceremony on a hilltop overlooking Sonoma County, a cocktail hour outdoors surrounded by roses, a dinner among the vineyards and a big white barn for dancing. It was a dream! -Amanda Vineyard, of Amanda Vineyard of Vineyard Events
