From Kelly McLeskey-Dolata at A Savvy Event...Working with Jessica and Kevin was such a great experience in that we really got to help the couple discover their style. Jessica wasn’t someone who had envisioned and planned her wedding throughout life, so we really got to open her eyes to a range of aesthetic options. From fabric swatches to Pinterest boards, we worked with Jessica to nail down the look and feel she and Kevin wanted for their big day. Jessica’s eye was drawn to natural landscapes and warm woods, but also crisp whites and saturated gem tones (think modern-rustic).

Jessica and Kevin traveled to Sonoma from their home in Los Angeles several times to shop for a venue, and ended up falling in love with Cornerstone Gardens when they stopped for a tour of the property on a whim, in between other venue appointments. It had everything the couple wanted--including an inviting open-air feel and rolling-hill views that were hard to take your eyes off of.

The ceremony took place on the Vineyard Lawn, a lush grassy area bordered by Pinot Noir vineyards, with the garden’s reflecting pond as a captivating and serene backdrop. Jessica was inspired by the venue’s natural beauty and chose a palette that played perfectly with the big blue sky and never-ending greenery. From dusty lavender to deep amethyst, purples were incorporated throughout and--alongside crisp white and pops of magenta--made for a clean and natural palette that boasted a touch of glamour.

Guests dined on the lawn under a tent, where wooden family-style tables coupled with streamlined (and oh-so chic) white chairs brought Jessica’s modern-rustic vision to life. The guests then moved to the barn for dancing, where we brought in white leather furnishings, airy white curtains and (pretty unforgettable) sequined linens.

Overall, we worked to marry the warmth and natural beauty of the venue with touches of purposeful and distinct glamour to create a balanced and playful aesthetic, and a relaxing (and charming) night.
