Sonoma Wedding :: Sven & Cherie’s Wedding

December 02, 2011  •  Leave a Comment

This wedding was like working with old friends. Everyone was super fun and the locations were superb! From their getting ready abode to the cavernous wine barrel room to the slammin’ dance floor – these two love birds know how to throw a wedding!!!

To start the day off, the girls got ready in a beautiful nearby home where all the bridesmaids could relax and get ready at their own pace. Someone plugged in the iPod and it was like their own little getting ready party! The girls were so much fun and all so easy going. The guys got ready and met me at a rustic old barn where we took some cool shots with Sven and all his guys. They pull off the “reservoir dogs” look pretty well, don’t you think?  When I got to meet back up with the girls, they looked stunning!

Opening with a beautifully long procession, Sven and Cherie’s wedding ceremony was gorgeous.  I can’t think of a prettier venue – overlooking Clos du Bois’ vineyards.  What a great location to get married – wonderful grounds and helpful staff!  The reception area had floating lights strung over the dance floor, an outdoor lounge and bar, full candy bar and studio style photo booth.  The photo booth was such a kick to do…  check out their photos on a previous post (link).

The live band was simply amazing.  The Keith Johnson All Stars played all night and had the dance floor packed!  They interacted with the guests on the dance floor as they played some of the best covers I’ve ever heard.  I don’t usually give a shout out in my blog write ups but I have to give some big props to this band because I wager that they’re one of the best live music groups I have ever heard.  Simply WOW.   Sven found the group, so nice choice Sven!!

All in all, a phenomenal night for a truly wonderful couple.  Congratulations, Sven and Cherie!!
