Cornerstone Sonoma: A Unique Venue
As your scrolling through the pictures below, you’ll see that there is one thing in common with all of the Napa weddings. They are absolutely colorful and so gorgeous!
For this wedding, it actually took place within a private and public winery. One side of the winery is open to the public, featuring a sit-down eatery, wine tasting, and of course, many tourists. The other side of the winery, however, was converted into a wedding venue!
The really unique part about this venue is that it’s not only a huge tourist location, but that it’s a venue as well. On top of this, the entire Cornerstone Sonoma winery is decorated with local art. The venue features different artists with very unique work. As you scroll through the pictures below, you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about.
Oversized lawn chairs, baseballs, and even an art deco tunnel, decorated the property. I love when my couples choose unique venues, as the picture opportunities are endless!
Natalie and Josh were the definition of laid back and stress-free. It amazed me, as I watched them simply enjoy their wedding details, each other, and of course, their many guests.
This beautiful couple made their wedding day look so easy. They had many guests and large bridal parties, so I know that coordination was not easy. They kept their cool their entire wedding day, enjoying every second with each other.
As you can see by the pictures below, though their wedding was large, they didn’t lose that emotional intimacy. During their ceremony and toasts, happy tears were shed as they and their guests celebrated their love.
For their color scheme, they decided to match the environment around them. They use many forms of greenery in their bouquet, and even used succulents in the men’s boutonnieres. Natalie’s bridal bouquet featured a bright pop of pink to make her stand out from her bridesmaids.
Happily, I’m glad to say that this won’t be my last time working with this gorgeous couple. After the wedding, Natalie’s sister booked me for her wedding at Triple S Ranch in Napa! I absolutely cannot wait to see all of their lovely faces again and capture yet another flawless wedding.
Thanks to all the vendors!!
