Amber + Jeff, Cornerstone Sonoma

 

Image

Amber and Jeff were married at the always gorgeous, Cornerstone Sonoma. Cornerstone is such a fabulous, versatile venue. You can dress it up any way you like (modern, vintage, glam… it all works there!) or simply bring in your family and friends and it’s beautiful! The very talented Amber and Jeff went with a rustic farm style look that turned out to be A.MAZING with tons of DIY touches. No joke. It was pretty awesome. Guests sipped their welcome beverages from striped straws in mason jars, waved burlap “yay!” flags with the b + g kissed, munched on delish appetizers from Insalata’s. Guests enjoyed dinner under Cornerstone’s round tent while seated at long farm style tables and danced the night away in the candlelit barn under a sea of custom burlap flags. All this amazing-ness captured by the uber-talented Paco + Betty.

Check it out … I’m pretty sure you’ll agree. ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Pretty major.

KK + Stefan, Kunde Family Estate Kenwood

Image

KK + Stefan’s event was the epitome of natural beauty. It was a true Sonoma wine country affair. The bride and groom chose a clean, natural palette of white and green set on wood and burlap that really stood out against the beauty of Kunde’s vineyards. The day was filled with such fun details mixing the bride and groom’s heritage … ring bearers wore lederhosen and bow ties (adorable!) and carried “here comes the bride” signs in both German and English, dinner menus were in English and German, the ceremony infused traditions from both cultures, the beverage and dinner menus payed homage to both cultures as well. 

Ok, can we talk about the kids now? So freakin’ cute right? I mean, as if the lederhosen and bow ties weren’t enough… they manned the homemade lemonade stand, held up “score” signs after the big kiss, delivered a cheese sandwich (we’ll get to that later) to the bride and groom and generally added to the cuteness of the whole night! Nice work, kids! 

Now on to the cheese… the B + G are super into cheese (aren’t we all?) They hosted a cheese bar and had a cheese wedding cake, even tables were named after their favorite cheeses. As a cheese lover myself, it was truly an event to remember!

Guests dined alfresco under soft string lighting and candlelight. Guests enjoyed roasting marshmallows at Kunde’s firepit, took oodles of photo in the photobooth and danced the night way under the beautiful oak trees. It could not have been more beautiful.

So gorg. Thanks for allowing Kelly + Company to be a part of your beautiful day, KK + Stefan!

Lindsay + Bryce, Ramekins Culinary School Sonoma

ImageWhen you first meet Lindsay + Bryce, you think “Ok, this is right. These two are most definitely, beyond a doubt, a perfect pair.” Lindsay + Bryce were married at the Oakland LDS Temple and hosted their beautiful reception at Ramekins Culinary School in Sonoma. For those of you that aren’t familiar with the amazing Ramekins, let me fill you in. Ramekins sits just a couple blocks from downtown Sonoma on an amazing jewel of a property, boasting a beautiful intimate ceremony location, lovely covered patio and grounds, a glorious test kitchen (perfect for a culinary school rehearsal dinner!) and beautiful large guest rooms.  It really is a special place. Their food is divine, their staff is beyond amazing, you can’t go wrong. Go on… schedule a visit. You’ll want to go back again and again (just like I do!) :-)

Anyway, back to Lindsay + Bryce.

What can I say? True love was in the air, the crowd enjoyed appetizers on the patio and moved inside for a delicious meal and some good old fashioned dancing (I believe there was even a pants split moment due to getting down!)

Lindsay’s style is bananas. Check out those shoes… I mean, really? Lindsay, maybe I could borrow when you’re done? Amazing. And.that.dress. Did I mention Lindsay’s mom made her dress? SPECTACULAR, right? I wish you guys could see how beautiful the lace and cut were. Lindsay, maybe I could borrow your mom as well?

Thanks again Lindsay + Bryce for allowing Kelly + Company to be a part of your amazing day!

Kelly + Ari, Golden Gate Club San Francisco

Kelly and Ari are those people who you meet and immediately fall in love with. It is simply.that.easy.with these two. Because they had February in mind for their happy day, they kept the weather in mind when planning the event. When the day finally came around, it may have been one of the most gorgeous days of the whole entire year. But even if the weather hadn’t turned out perfectly, we were prepared. The girls had vintage fur stoles, umbrellas, rain boots, feather adorned high heels and the boys sported brightly colored sunglasses. Come rain storm or sunshine – we were prepared! Kelly + Ari chose a bright fun palette of tangerine and sea foam green (well, honestly we went a little crazy with all colors, but sometimes these things happen!) I like to call it a sunny, anthropologie library theme. Um, sure, why not? Don’t take my word for it, check out these spectacular photos from the incredibly talented Loic Nicolas.

Lisa + Heinz, Twelve Oaks Palo Alto

This one is LONG overdue… but so worth it! The gorgeous Lisa + the dashing Heinz were married at 12 Oaks in Palo Alto. It is pretty much an amazing hidden gem of a venue. The bride and groom chose a soft palette of lavender, purple and shimmery silver. The kept things crisp and simple with white linens which looked beautiful against the venue lush, green gardens.

Sara + Brian, Garden Pavilion Sonoma

Sara + Brian were married at one of my favorite venues, the Garden Pavilion in Sonoma. It’s such a magical place overflowing with spectacular gardens and vintage buildings oozing charm. It was a perfect fit for Sara + Brian. Their vintage, eclectic theme worked perfectly with Garden Pavilion’s magically romantic ambiance.

We rented some amazing vintage items from Wine Country Party and Events in Sonoma, which paired perfectly with Sara and her mother’s collection of fun decor items. What came together from the eclectic mix was beautiful and so much fun!

Guests found their seats from tiny keys that were used as escort cards hanging from a chicken wire screen in front of a vintage typewriter. An enormous globe stood near the entrance to the pavilion. A beautiful dessert bar in hues of pale pink and white was the perfect early evening treat. It was truly a romantic night – one of the highlights of our year! Congratulations again Sara + Brian! Thanks for allowing Kelly + Company to be a part of your special day!

Molly + James, Cornerstone Sonoma

We had the immense pleasure of working with Molly + James on their Summer wedding. They went with a soft romantic palette of pale pinks, peaches and creams with touches of modern and vintage charm. Their delicious family style meal (courtesy of Alex’s Catering) was served on long rustic white wood tables complemented by Theresa Stoner’s gorgeous arrangements in eclectic containers. Just beautiful! Guests danced and enjoyed a dessert bar under the light of beautiful crystal chandeliers and candlelight. It was truly an amazing evening! Thanks for allowing Kelly + Company to be a part of your special day!
