Jennie & Chris - 6/28/2008
Moon Mountain Retreat - Sonoma, CA
A perfect warm summer night sunset wedding with the rolling hills of Sonoma County Wine Country as a backdrop.
Jennie and Chris hosted their sunset wedding in the beautiful Sonoma hill side location, the Moon Mountain Retreat on Saturday, June 28, 2008 for 100 family members and close friends.
Guests started trickling in around 6pm and Gianni with staff from Pacific Coast Events were ready to serve cold refreshments took keep guests relaxed until the start of the ceremony. While Jennie and the girls got ready in the lower suite of the main house, Chris enjoyed a drink on the porch with his good friend Ken Paulsen who was about to officiate for his first time and was competing with the groom on being nervous...
Ken started up the procession and the best man Ed played the guitar while Jennie & Chris were joined at the top of the steps and together walked down the aisle to say their I-do s. The ceremony was followed by a heavy hors d'oeuvres reception with a wonderful spread of delicious food prepared by Gianni and plenty conversation to be had. To top of the gourmet experience, Jennie & Chris' good friend Stephen Marchi had baked the most divine cup cakes and a small cake to top the cupcake tree for the bride & groom to cut during the cake cutting ceremony.
Sara, a good friend of Chris' and her partner started up the dancing with an invigorating fire dance performance and all of this was captured by Stephen Payne who took some amazing pictures. Please click here to see more.
Congratulations Jennie & Chris!
