rebecca & drew’s wedding – sonoma

These two sweethearts are one of the most genuine and down to earth couples I’ve ever had the privilege of photographing. Rebecca & I hit it off from the moment we met. I learned right away that Drew and her were fellow Berkeley undergrads which, let’s face it, is always an added bonus in my book. Soon after our meeting, I was thrilled to find out that I had the opportunity to photograph their wedding at the sundry grounds of Cornerstone Gardens.

I ultimately had the pleasure of meeting Drew at their engagement session in San Francisco. A few short hours after combing the city and following them around like my little puppy dog Buster (yes, I’m also a huge Giants fan), I quickly became aware that these two were the “real deal”. They have true hearts of gold (and blue… go bears), magnetic personalities, and are easy on the eyes. I felt like I hit the photography jackpot.

Rebecca & Drew met at Cal and were friends for a couple of years before dating. Drew visited Rebecca while she was studying abroad in Buenos Aires. They hiked Machu Picchu together with good friends, and it was clear then that upon their return, they were perfect for each other. They continued to date for five and a half years when Drew popped the undeniable question… Will you marry me?!?

They chose Cornerstone Gardens for their wedding because with San Francisco their home, they loved visiting Sonoma together for weekend getaways. With the help of their moms, they designed their wedding with an emphasis on rustic décor. Thank you to the following vendors for making their dream wedding a reality!
