Kelly (from A Savvy Event Sonoma – across the road so-to-speak), Chloe from Boxwood Avenue, and myself collaborated for Chateau Sonoma‘s grand opening and the launch of A Savvy Lifestyle, a branch of ASE. A Savvy Lifestyle is essentially “The Very Best of Wine Country Living” – if you’re local or are traveling to the area check it out!

By the way, the farmhouse table we shot this on will forever be an inspiration to *one day* build, source, or snag one and set it up outside to host dinner with all my friends. There’s something beautifully country and quaint about Sonoma – its a great antithesis to Napa’s formalities. The rich rolling hills are still there but everything is r.e.l.a.x.e.d.

Every little item in the shop is carefully curated and married with a feeling between a true-to-home country Sonoma feel and a Parisian chic twist. Home goods, hand milled soaps and candles, the most delicious jams and jellies you can spread over sourdough and a beautiful space to peruse all the rest. If you decide to stop by there are some convenient wineries you stop in before or after you’ve had lunch in the area.

As always, Kelly from A Savvy Event was a delight to work with for the little shoot. Complete with her and her snapchat filters which will never cease to make me laugh.
