Venessa and Marlon
Sonoma Wedding at Depot Hotel
Venessa and Marlon had a fairytale wedding at the Hotel Depot Restaurant in Sonoma with their friends and family. They had their sweet pooch. Venessa secured gorgeous bridesmaid dresses from Azazie. And her gorgeous dress (made for a princess) was a Sottero and Midgley purchased at Elegant Lace Bridal in San Jose.
They met through a dating website and it almost didn’t happen because our work schedules kept getting in the way. We met at San Pedro market and from there had dinner on a rooftop bar and managed to wander around in to a karaoke bar. we have pretty much been inseparable since then.
Their wedding was gorgeous! They got ready at a darling Hidden Oak Inn a darling bed and breakfast in Sonoma. This is where she got ready and had their first look. Her hair and makeup was done by Caysi Jean Artistry.
The groom was so dapper and the bride dazzled in a wedding gown that was covered in jewels. She was truly a fairytale bride in every sense of the word. They both were awe struck by each other when they had their first look and couldn’t take their eyes off each other. They both looked like they won the lottery.
The wedding was darling with their sweet dog walking down the isle with a flower lei. Her wedding flowers were stunning and unique by
Lori McQuiddy of Floralei’s. They incorporated an sweet keepsake the bride walked down the aisle with. The bride made a grand entrance and her confidence and beauty was unmistakable.
They had a darling cake from Andrea of Crisp Bakeshop and their first dance was “Thinking Out Loud” by Ed Sheeran and directly underneath an outdoor chandelier with music playing from Runaway DJ. And the evening ended with a stunning firework sendoff.
