A Place For Weddings

My wife Shelley joined other vendors to host an open house of a new venue, "Stomping Ground Vineyard" for weddings and special events at the edge of the San Gabriel Forest. The property is a beautiful venue for those couples looking for a place that is outdoors with a rustic atmosphere.

Shelley was able to forage the grounds for greens to complete her floral designs for the chapel.

Brides and their grooms walked through the charming parts of the property contemplating the value of this venue for their upcoming wedding day. They met a DJ, photographer, caterer, baker, calligrapher, and a floral designer.

Though just a little more than an hour away from the urban jungle known as Los Angeles, there were no signs of the big city on this property. This day the grounds welcomed folks who brought their lovely talents and their lovely things.

It became a gathering place for a few hours for people who love to celebrate love. When the day was done, it became more about the relationships we made with people: not selling a product or a service.
