Sonoma Wedding Photographer | Kenwood Gardens | Susana & Loren Part 1

I'm so excited to finally introduce this super sweet couple, Susana and Loren.  I had the honor of photographing their incredible Kenwood wedding last month and truly enjoyed getting to know them and their family.  There is so much I'd like to share from this wedding so I'm posting this as two separate entries: up until the party and then the party.

This is their story: Susana and Loren are both living in Florida.  Susana is originally from El Salvador and Loren from Kenwood.  She works in the travel industry and he works as a pararescueman in the Air Force.  They met at at a night club while Loren was on a work trip in Destin, Florida, and as the town name says it, it was destiny that brought them to where they are today.  They were engaged for just over a year staying tightly knit through Loren's extended deployments.  Kenwood seemed like the perfect place for their destination wedding and they both agreed that Kenwood Community church and Kenwood Farms and Gardens would be the perfect backdrop to their day.  It was the first time that many of their family members were able to meet each other.

Some of my favorite details of the day included the white draped fabric at the church, Susana's gorgeous Maggie Sottero dress and Bebe shoes.  Her stunning hair and make-up was done by Salon 12 in Santa Rosa, and bouquets were created by family friend, Erica Krauthammer.  All of the centerpieces and decor at the reception was the work of Lori at Kenwood Farms and Garden.
