I LOVE Kenwood Inn.
Really. A Kenwood Inn wedding is unique in a hundred ways and you never even have to leave the site.
When I was contacted by Adam and Laura and they told me about their intimate (about 40 guests) wedding all at the Kenwood Inn, I just got excited. The night before, the guest dinner was held at the Sonoma Williams-Sonoma. Odd, you are thinking I know. However, Laura works for Williams-Sonoma and designed the remodel. So, voila, dinner! It was so beautiful and I had NO idea this was available. The setting was beautiful, there was full access to the store and the food was fantastic. Looking for a place for dinner? Go!
Then the wedding day.
Ahh, Kenwood Inn, how I adore you. The weather was perfect, the setting for dinner was just beautiful. Of course, it had a Williams-Sonoma feel to it but it blended so amazingly well into the setting of the venue itself. Soft hues of olive and lots of texture. It was breathtaking. Being able to get over head of everyone was such a rare opportunity and it was fun to just watch the night from above everyone. Because there were only 40 guests, the couple had the people there that meant the most to them and the vibe of that was really felt.
A 500 guest wedding is fun, to be sure, but the intimacy is lost. It was fully felt here. Adam even serenaded his new bride with a guitar solo that she had no idea would happen. She had given him lessons and low and behold, he was studying hard!
This was a wonderful couple at a wonderful venue and just a most wonderful day. I love what I do and am always honored to be a part of these days. I limit the number of weddings I do to 15 a year because then I get to be 100% invested in each and every couple. A lovely Kenwood Inn wedding comes to a close.
