Mt. Madonna Redwood Grove Wedding

Jenn and Sam met while working the tomato harvest on a farm in Texas. Eventually, Jenn followed Sam back to Northern California where the pair and their dog Doc can be found early Sunday mornings selling organic produce at Silicon Valley farmers markets. It won’t surprise anyone to learn their favorite thing to do is cook for each other, and their dearest friends and family.

They wanted their wedding to be about feeding their people and to feel “like the best backyard BBQ we’ll ever host.” Post-ceremony dinner in the redwoods consisted of smoked ribs, lots of tomatoes, and to blend their Bay Area and Texas heritage, the menu included Topo Chico and IT’S ITs.

The charming idea of “getting ready in a yurt” had its challenges (like not enough power for a hairdryer and no phone reception), but, the informal vibe of a picnic in the redwood grove at Mt Madonna Park was exactly the right fit for their vision. The nooks of trees surrounding the tables created "living spaces” for various activities and for friends and family to connect, share a drink, or take a walk thorough the forest.
