Sandra and Brian were married at Barndiva in Healdsburg, Calif. on May 18. “Everything was in one place — the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception,” Sandra said. “The chef used to work at The French Laundry (3 star Michelin restaurant), and we’re BIG into food.” The bride wore an a-line wedding gown with a tiered skirt, accessorized with a gray sash and wedges, while the groom wore a black suit, accessorized with a patterned tie. “When we saw each other for the first time, we both cried hysterically,” she said. Following the Jewish and Taiwanese American nuptials, guests were served pass hors d’oueures, 5-course meal, dessert bar, and late night snacks. Wow, that’s a lot! Reception tables were decorated with all handmade items. “I loved that everyone chipped in,” Sandra said. “Our aunt sewed all of the table runners, the ‘maids made their bouquets from flowers we bought at the SF Flower Mart, my sister made the seating chart. Super special.” The table numbers were chalkboard wine bottles attached with a tag that said, “Draw on me,” and each place setting included a kitchen utensil or cutting board as a favor. The newlyweds’ best advice? “Pick the three things that are most important to you and forget about the rest,” she said. “Spend your money and your time on those three things and you won’t go crazy.”
