Caitlin Christopher & Blake Bonner

Caitlin Christopher & Blake Bonner

Sparks flew when Caitlin Christopher and Blake Bonner first met, and a couple of years after mutual friends introduced the pair, they were engaged. Last May, they wed in Crockett at her family’s home, an 1850s farmhouse that her parents restored. The idea was a formal garden party, with the home’s front porch as an altar and a party in the backyard, complete with a tented dance floor and cocktails under the trees. The evening ended with—wait for it—fireworks.
