I have been looking forward to this wedding all year! Elieke and Charlie are so sweet and I can tell live life to the fullest! It was a pleasure getting to know them more at their wedding and witness how loved they are by so many people. They live in the great city of Chicago, but being that Elieke’s family is in the Bay Area, they wanted to have a wine country wedding…and there is no place more beautiful than a fall wedding in Sonoma! Cornerstone is one of my favorite venues to photograph due to all the unique art, gorgeous gardens and inspiring displays sprinkled throughout the property.
Elieke and her family are Dutch so Charlie surprised Elieke by wearing her dad’s wooden clogs for a majority of the day! Getting from point A to point B took some time but he looked like a natural in them 🙂 They also had so many great DIY details all with clever humor infused! Everything was homemade from the signs, to the lawn games, bridal party gifts and even the king’s table garland. Elieke and her family have got some crazy DIY skillz! I especially loved their cake tower made of cheese! I would definitely be happy stranded on an island with just that cheese tower and some wine. They also had homemade ice cream being served near the dance floor which the guests LOVED. It was a perfect day and I cannot wait to share these photos with you! Congrats!
