Alex and Zach's Sonora Wedding

Alex and Zach’s Thurman Landing Wedding

From the bride: Our wedding theme was rustic greenery with a touch of gold. We were very excited with the venue. It was absolutely stunning with plush greenery everywhere. Making our dreams a reality was not difficult and they also provided us with a beautiful home on the property to get ready in and another suite for Zachary and I to stay the night of the wedding. My favorite part of our decor had to be the head table with the dramatic tree centerpieces and also our boxwood bar with our initials attached. It helped make the venue more “us” for the evening. If you are on the fence about using a decorator for the day I would highly suggest it, it made our day so much more relaxed and we were able to enjoy the moments instead of worrying about decorating.

Our main goal for our special night was simple; we wanted every guest to enjoy the night as much as we knew we would. From the pictures, I think you can tell we succeeded. We provided two signature cocktails, with the ingredients displayed with an acrylic sign that matched our table numbers. We also provided cigars to guests which made for wonderful pictures on the patio. One creative idea that saved us money was our trail mix bar. We wanted our guests to enjoy appetizers while we took pictures but of course, that added to our budget. So instead, we offered a trail mix bar for guests to enjoy and they loved it! Last but not least, the band made the night. We loved that we had such a talented band but also had a DJ that could handle emceeing all of the intros and special dance songs that we requested. For anyone wanting a band I would highly suggest getting a band that offers a bundle package so you do not have to worry about having any gaps in the entertainment.
