Towards the end of our Bay Area Summer, we took a drive to the North Bay for a lovely house wedding in Sonoma where Laura and Adam said “I do” surrounded by their close family and friends. These two and the majority of their wedding guests made the trip to California from the Midwest and got to enjoy the California sun, a nice break from the chilly fall weather back home. Laura and Adam’s friend offered up his Sonoma home to serve as their wedding venue and what a beautiful venue it was. The sleek and modern home served as a backdrop for a refined yet intimate ceremony. We loved shooting the details of this home as the house was layered with crisp white and cream colors that gave the event an overall sophisticated and upscale feel.
The ceremony took place on the property’s lush lawn overlooking a rustic wine country field. The officiant of their ceremony was Laura’s sister and the readings and music were also given by guests. Having guests be a part of the event is a great way to get everyone involved and cut down on event down time where guests may become distracted. It was beautiful to see the blending of families and incorporating everyone into the ceremony sets a great tone for this modern day Brady Bunch.
Following the ceremony, guests mingled poolside during the cocktail hour while dinner was plated. Guests mingled and enjoyed their delicious food while overlooking a gorgeously refreshing looking pool. We definitely had a bit of home envy with this location.
The evening closed with a twilight toast to their guests and a champagne saber gift to their host and good friend. It was such a pleasure being part of this one. We love working in new places and documenting moments that are so meaningful to our clients.
