Taylor & Tom were one of the many couples who had to reschedule their wedding due to the pandemic. Although this is never ideal, their day turned out even better than expected and was held entirely outdoors as an extra precaution.
A New Plan
Originally, Taylor & Tom had planned to have an outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour followed by an indoor reception. However, with the blessing of a beautiful day, we collectively decided hosting everything outdoors would ultimately make their guests feel the most comfortable.
Their beautiful ceremony at Sonoma Golf Club's Oak Tree Lawn kicked off their celebration, followed by a beautiful dinner on the same lawn! Standard Event Rentals handled the draping which helped create the natural barrier to make this flip possible! Fairmont Sonoma's team transformed the space flawlessly. Flourish created the most stunning arrangements that fit with the natural ivy beautifully. The incorporation of fruit with the centerpieces brought the tables to life and gave the ultimate late summer atmosphere to the tablescape.
The happy couple ended their night dancing under the stars and string lights on the upper terrace of the venue. HIP Entertainment provided live music which kept the crowd moving all night long! It was one of our favorite settings to see dancing take place. At the end of the night the wedding party departed on a classic wine trolley from Sonoma Valley Wine Trolley which made for a great getaway (which was also very suitable given the location!)
All together the wedding ran smoothly and turned out even better than Taylor & Tom had expected. The new plan ended up being a huge hit across their guests and everyone could celebrate safely!
