California Dreaming: Kate & Dave In Sonoma, CA

After a six-year courtship, Dave Yrueta proposed to Kate Schregardus during a weekend getaway at the bayside resort in Marin County, CA. In homage to the picturesque wine country where they became engaged, Kate and Dave chose to hold their outdoor wedding at the Cornerstone Gardens in Sonoma, a venue that captured their passion for sprawling vineyards and rustic nature. California-based wedding planner, Sasha Souza, helped the couple create a fun, inviting evening, complete with an outdoor garden ceremony, cocktail hour, tented reception and, finally, dancing in the barn.

Inspired by the colors of the gardens, Kate chose a warm palette of orange, gold and red, contrasted with hits of blue and green.
