On a trip to wine country with friends, Courtney came across Pear Valley Winery in Paso Robles, California, and was struck by the beauty of its hills and vineyards. So for her spring wedding, she knew Pear Valley would be the perfect place to exchange vows. “It had an Italian-villa feel, with a stone building, colorful roses and vineyards,” says Courtney. The site has a beautiful stone terrace overlooking the vineyards where the couple exchanged vows. “Since there was so much natural beauty, we kept the decoration very simple,” she says.
