 At the beautiful private estate of Nestldown in the Santa Cruz Mountains, JoAnn and Jonathan tied the knot in a fun, relaxed and super creative wedding celebration! Their personal styles and passion for family and friends, fashion, cooking, music, and spirituality were infused into every aspect of the day. From their vintage inspired  wedding dress and suit, to the delicious picnic themed family style dinner, chocolate desserts and ice cream treats they served, to the way music was featured so prominently from beginning to end, it all came straight from their hearts.
