Darienne and Nathan's wedding day was probably one of the most anticipated events in 2021. Tucked away in Novato, the beautiful Stonetree Estate was perfectly lit the entire day. Their ceremony and reception space was elegantly decorated with pampas grass. gold details, and neutral, muted florals.
The two and their wedding party got ready at the Best Western Inn, just 8 minutes away from Stonetree Estate. Dar had her details set aside and ready to go when we arrived. She wanted to wait until we got to the wedding venue to put on the dress, so with Nate tucked away, we pulled the dress out to the green wisteria vines growing at the front of the property. Her Badgley Mischka dress hung perfectly on the vines. I absolutely adored the back with that beautiful giant bow (and mini one!) in the back... dare I say I was a bit obsessed by it! Nate on the other hand, got dressed at the hotel and had the help of his best man, Alex.
Darienne and Nathan decided to opt out of a first look and wanted to save this special moment for the ceremony and it was one of the sweetest moments. There wasn't a dry eye in sight as the two finally saw one another for the first time that day. The two honored their cultural and religious traditions with a reference to the Catholic coins, veil, and rope. The two truly became one from this moment on.
To Darienne and Nathan:
Thank you so much for choosing us to capture your special day at the Stonetree Estate. My ears are still ringing from all the love your family and friends yelled out to wish you two well. It was so clear to see how much love you had for each other, your families, and your friends... and all the love they had back for you two. This kind of energy, this bond, it's special and you've surrounded yourselves with such a fine community. I can't wait to see how you two grow in life together. Congratulations on finally tying the knot!!
