An intimate vineyard private wedding (micromony) combining two cultures, with Zoom attendees from five countries When S + J contacted me, they told me of their postponed big Nepalese wedding, and how heavy their hearts were that all of the bride’s family couldn’t attend their new micromony at romantic De Tierra Event’s Hacienda House.

M+L were married last year and on a vacation this week from the Midwest to Carmel and Big Sur.
