Alice and Arvi’s Cornerstone Gardens Wedding, Sonoma CA

It is with great joy that I share Alice and Arvi’s wedding with you today. When I visited Cornerstone Gardens in Sonoma for the first time I was amazed by how perfect the place was for these two. I don’t think they could have found a place that is a better fit for them. Creative, smart, gorgeous. That’s the place, and that is what they are. It matches perfectly with these two designer’s personalities. Oh, and it’s smack-dab in the middle of wine country (a love we all three share). Arvi has been a Superman geek since he was a kid and in the middle of our portrait session he and all his groomsmen busted out the superhero t-shirts that were under their suits. Alice’s reaction was priceless (see below). I’m not surprised that these two creatives put together a wedding that was thought out and designed in every way. From the invitations sent in linen bags, to the way their orange theme flowed through everything from the bridesmaids necklaces, to the flowers, to the way their table set-ups were developed… it was all perfect. So much joy, so much happiness, and such a blast for Josh and I to attend. Now to the images that can share the celebration so much more richly than my words…

Just as the ceremony was about to begin an old propeller plane flew across the sky, as if to celebrate what was about to happen.

Alice and Arvi did an incredible job of picking some fantastic vendors and thanks to the coordination of Vera Devera the day flowed like silk. Props to:

Matthias – you have outdone yourself ! This is fantastic. I can feel the love of the newly wedded couple, whom I am now calling Alvi or Arlice. Can’t decide which.
