Rustic Charm: Carrie & Neil In Glen Ellen, CA

Soon after Carrie Law and Neil Grant began looking for a gorgeous wedding location, they found one that seemed ideal — Atwood Ranch and Vineyard in Glen Ellen, California.


“It was the perfect blend: It had vineyards that suited Neil’s passion for wine, and horses that suited mine — I’m an animal lover,” says Carrie. “We toured some other sites because we felt that we should. But Atwood stuck in our minds.” They booked it and set the date for October. Neil worked with the caterer to get the menu just right and selected South African wines to serve as a tribute to his native country. Carrie chose her favorite color, burgundy, and other warm tones — burnt orange and peach — to complement the rustic California-style barn where the reception would take place.


Here, Carrie — who grew up horseback riding — and Neil hang out with one of the ranch’s resident horses.
