Emma Hearst + John Barker

welcome

.  With the magnificence of one of California's greatest treasures

Hearst Castle

and Ranch as the backdrop for Emma + John's spring wedding, the overwhelming sense of history was apparent throughout the festivities.  And the grandeur that comes with this locale was made beautifully visible in the hospitality and grace of the Hearst family.  Yet, the real and approachable style of Emma and John made this production one of pure pleasure.

The three-day wedding extravaganza began with a 1920's-inspired Rehearsal Dinner at the Hearst Castle Refectory on Thursday, followed by a Fiesta Welcome Dinner on Friday at the Hearst wine warehouse nestled in San Simeon Cove.

After the breathtaking ceremony at the ranch's hilltop featuring endless vistas of the property and Castle, the guests gathered for cocktails on the Senator's House sunswept lawn.  The wedding celebration was held at the Hearst Ranch Dairy Barn, crowning the week with the ideal carefree vibe in this most authentic California Central Coast setting.
