MacArthur Place Sonoma Wedding


They met at a mutual friend’s graduation party- a boat cruise around the bay. And 12 years later, the same friend married Jenny & Brian at their garden-themed MacArthur Place Sonoma wedding. The pair held an intimate & stylish summer wedding with their nearest and dearest.

About The Couple

Twelve years ago, Jenny and Brian were invited to their friend Ron’s surprise graduation party. They instantly noticed each other but were both too shy to say anything. Thankfully their mutual friends had another gathering, and after that Brian worked up the courage to reach out to Jenny via Facebook message. After several years of dating, Brian planned a vacation for them at the Pelican Inn. Jenny found this odd, as she was the one who usually planned their vacations. Brian had a surprise in store- he proposed to Jenny on a beautiful day at Muir beach. Although he didn’t quite have the ring yet, he proposed once more when the ring actually arrived. For the second proposal, Brian used glow-in-the-dark paint on their ceiling to pop the question, this time with ring in hand.

Jenny & Brian

To Jenny & Brian: what an honor it was to be invited back into the family for another amazing celebration. I absolutely loved photographing your big day! You two have so much love for one another and your families- it was very evident at your wedding. I have so many favorite moments from my brief but lovely time capturing your celebration. From the super fun photos with your family (love Mama Thai’s enthusiasm for cute shots!) to witnessing you sharing your sweet personal vows, to our epic jaunt around MacArthur’s grounds in your newlywed bliss. I can’t wait to see what amazing things this next step in life brings you two. And I pray our paths cross again. Congrats Jenny & Brian!

Client Love Note

“If you’re looking for a photographer to capture your wedding day, look no further! Corinna was fantastic to work with right from the start. From recommending the best photography package to fit our wedding schedule and budget to capturing gorgeous images throughout the day, I could not have asked for a better photographer. Corinna is so thoughtful and intentional in her approach, and it shows in her preparation and the photos she delivers. Corinna is the absolute best.”
