Real Wedding: Bay + Greg’s Rustic Wedding at Atwood Ranch

While at the B-List Event the other week, I had the pleasure of chatting with photographer Shelly Kroeger. As we discussed her work, I just knew her style would be a perfect match for Green Wedding Shoes! Her photos are so beautiful. Bay and Greg were married at the Atwood Ranch in Sonoma. Bay is a shoe designer and designed her own shoes – love that so much! I also love all the colors and the details inside the barn – especially the chandeliers. The beautiful florals were done by Anne Appleman Florals & Gifts in Sonoma. Event Planning was by Julie Atwood Events. Thanks so much for sharing this wedding with us Shelly, and congrats to Bay and Greg!

  11. Kate and Kristy – I’ve found out who did the flowers and added it to the post. Also learned who the planner was and she specializes in barn weddings at this location! so if anyone is looking for that, I would contact her. thanks everyone!

  12. What a gorgeous wedding!!!

  13. where in the hell can I find those shoes!? I LOVE them!

  14. Jemmessica – Bay designed them!! How awesome is that? She is a shoe designer.

  15. so… does that mean that no one else can buy those shoes? They are amazing.

  16. we absolutely love the Atwood ranch. Such a perfect venue.

  17. Wow, just saw this and how truly kind all of you are! The shoes are from a previous collection Spring 2008, but are available for custom order. I design for Form & Fauna, an eco-chic shoe brand. The shoes I am wearing for the wedding are called "Paris in Spring" but I changed the colorway to red for kicks (standard colorway for that style is creme/black).

    Anne Appleman did the flowers and she is amazing! So is Shelley Kroeger the photographer and Julie Atwood from Atwood Ranch.

    Big Love,
