Jenn and Julian’s wedding day started with first looks at their Sonoma, CA venue, Depot Hotel and Restaurant. After the bride and groom shared a few private moments, they exchanged vows in a heartfelt ceremony under the restaurant’s pergola. Jen was gorgeous in her sleek sheath gown with its cap sleeves and chapel train and Julian was dashing in his blue suit and pale pink tie. After their first married kiss, the newlyweds had fun posing for portraits near the train museum in nearby Depot Park.
Their afternoon picnic reception featured classic blue and white checkered tablecloths and whimsical, food-themed piñata centerpieces. Jenn and Julian wanted a low key celebration that reflected them as a couple and used a lot of DIY elements in their planning and decor. Lunch was served buffet style and for dessert, they skipped the traditional wedding cake and served an assortment of pies.
Jenn and Julian created a special hashtag so guests could share their wedding pics on social media and they displayed it with a cool balloon “sign”. After lunch, friends and family danced in the park and helped themselves to adorable food-themed cookies. At least one of the piñata centerpieces got busted open and there was plenty of candy to go around. Congratulations Jenn and Julian!
