Katarina and Ryen’s relationship has been nothing short of an incredible adventure—but with a start much like any other. They met while working at an Italian restaurant in Boulder, Colorado, and grew fonder of each other, despite the distance, when Katarina went to France for college. Following her studies, Ryen hopped across the pond and they travelled Europe together, then the US, and later the West Coast. It was on a beautiful day in Sonoma, California, that Ryen said to her, “Katarina, veux-tu m’épouser?” She, of course, said “Oui,” and they planned their destination wedding in that very region, beginning their lifelong adventure at the Tuscan-countryside-like Jacuzzi Family Vineyards.
When in Wine Country
The beautiful Tuscan-style venue, with its long family-style tables, added to the wedding’s warm and welcoming Italian feel.
“Remember that your wedding day is about you and your future spouse. You should be the ones to enjoy the day.”
Ryen surprised Katarina with a rented classic Rolls-Royce to take them away from the reception.
