The beautiful Garden Pavilion is a hidden gem, tucked away in Sonoma and played a perfect host to Chelsae and Eric's outdoor wedding. Chelsae and Eric created the wedding of their dreams with pretty shades of pink, gold, and sage to complement the natural beauty of their venue. The bridesmaids wore various shades of blush and gold, tying them in beautifully with the groom’s sage bow ties, creating a light and airy element to the affair.
From the Bride: My bridesmaids picked their own dresses based on my direction to pick a long dress that is either blush, light pink, champagne, or gold. And I asked them to get a dress they love and would want to wear again for another event. They picked beautiful dresses and shared photos with each other along the way to make sure the colors coordinated well. It worked out perfectly. The dresses they picked looked beautiful together
The ceremony was breathtakingly wonderful as the bride and groom exchanged their vows in front of their friends and family. Our favorite moment was when Chelsae’s grandfather read a poem dedicated to the new couple.
From the Bride: Decide what wedding elements mean the most to you and plan your special day accordingly. You can personalize your wedding to fit who you are as a couple and create an event that you are proud of and passionate about bringing to life. Don't spend a lot of time and money on wedding details that you don't care about.
Dancing commenced under the stars in the glass pavilion as family and friends danced the night away we were able to sneak the couple away for sunset photos in the lavender herb garden and vineyard before their sparkler send off. Such a great way to end the night. I was happy to witness this day and see the love Chelsae and Eric had for each other.
From the Bride: We served our guests strawberry shortcake and we planned to have a small cake for our cake cutting. Unfortunately, our cake didn't make it to the wedding. We found out halfway through the reception that we didn't have a cake and made the call to skip the cake cutting. It worked out fine. No one noticed that we didn't have a cake cutting. We had such an awesome bouquet toss and a sparkler send off that we didn't even miss the cake cutting. If we planned our wedding all over again, I think we would skip the cake cutting again.
