This is a wonderful place to get married! The grounds are beautiful and unique but you can use the space to create the wedding you had envisioned. Very professional and responsive staff! I would highly recommend Cornerstone Gardens and am so thankful I had my wedding there!
I absolutely LOVED having our wedding at Cornerstone Gardens in Sonoma. The place is absolutely beautiful and provides guests with a feeling of being at different locations (ceremony lawn, dinner tent, and barn) without having to leave the property. We got married on the lawn, had cocktail hour outside the barn, dinner under the tent, and proceeded to dance & have cupcakes in the barn. It was perfect. There is a small house on site that comes in the package. There is also a large home on the property you can rent out. Unfortunately, we could not rent it, even though we booked our wedding about a year before it happened... the house was already booked for the weekend. That was the only bummer through the whole process.
We had our wedding here on 4/28/12 and couldn't have asked for a better place or experience. Cornerstone is beautiful and we loved that we got the whole property for our day. Veronica and Kristen were extremely helpful with coordinating our day. They answered all of our questions promptly and the place pretty much ran itself on our wedding day. I think Cornerstone is a great value for what you get and the pictures our photographer took there are beautiful and unlike any wedding pics I've seen before. I would recommend Cornerstone to anyone who is looking for a unique, nontraditional, and beautiful venue for their wedding.
I just got married at Cornerstone on March 17th and I cannot say enough good things about the venue and staff. We stayed at the houses and they were a perfect complement to the event locations (tent and barn). The weather was freezing but everyone felt cozy nonetheless. I bugged Kristen and Veronica quite a bit and they were always prompt and accommodating. They were always happy to make suggestions and adjustments as needed. And the gardens - well, what can I say, we could not have imagined a more perfect backdrop to our unforgettable day.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Cornerstone! It was the perfect location for our reception. Veronica, our on site coordinator, was truly outstanding. She was so responsive, professional, helpful, friendly and caring! We were well taken care of along every step of the process! The site was beautiful, perfect for pictures and offered everything our guest were looking for! I would recommend this site to anyone! Also, their vendor recommendations were wonderful. The only problems we had were when we strayed from their lists.
This was the most amazing place. Everyone that works here is awesome. I love Kristen , she is very helpful and makes everything go smoothly. Cornerstone made my wedding a fantasy and that is exactly what i imagined it to be!
Cornerstone was very responsive in following up and answering any questions. The site is perfect for picture taking. The only complaint I had from guests was that the paths were made of gravel and thus our shoes got very dusty. The only advice I have for future brides is that everything needs to be brought in - a kitchen, tables, chairs and dinnerware. This can add up so please be sure to budget that in.
Unlike many venues, Cornerstone allows hard liquor and pets. Our dog was part of the ceremony which made it special. We were allowed to throw rose petals and float flowers in the pond.
Veronica was the manager that day and she was most helpful.
I really love this place. I had my ceremony there and it was beautiful. I wish i would of done my reception there to. They have a property that they own and it has everything there. The house is beautiful. I would recommened this place for weddings and even some gatherings because it is perfect. The staff was great and the took care of my event.
We were referred to Cornerstone Gardens by our reception location. From the start, Kristen and her staff were incredibly helpful, curteous and professional. They made it easy for us throughout the entire planning process. Not only that, but the grounds are gorgeous and the picture perfect surroundings for a wedding. We held our ceremony at the smaller Vineyard House and it fit our group of 24 perfectly. We also ventured out into the gardens for pictures beforehand and I love the unique settings we got there that aren't available anywhere else. I am so, so glad we chose to host part of our wedding at Cornerstone Gardens. I would recommend it again and again to future brides for great value for the money, fabulous surroundings and helpful staff. Thanks, Kristen!
Cornerstone Gardens is perfect for a wedding 150 people or less (IMO) in the Sonoma/Napa area. If you are looking to have a truly unique (non-cookie cutter wedding) Cornerstone has a number of different spaces to choose from. We held our ceremony on the garden lawn, our cocktail hour inside the barn with tables outside on the barn lawn and our reception under the tent.
We were able to choose the vendors we wanted, in particular caterers, lighting, and florist. In addition Cornerstone's event management team is great, extremely responsive and easy to work with. We had a spectacular and truly memorable wedding and the venue enabled us to fulfil our vision and served as the main piece that brought it all together.
Lastly I highly recommend renting out the Vineyard House, the property adjacent to Cornerstone as a bride. It's a beautiful 3 bedroom/3 bathroom property conveniently located within walking distance to the property. I was able to get ready here and relax ahead of time to have truly a stress free pre-wedding and day of prep day.
The Vineyard Lawn, which is surrounded by lush pinot noir vineyards and encircled by the waters of the reflecting pool, offers spectactular views of the Sonoma hillsides, and is the ideal location for exchanging vows.
The venue's Historic Barn, which draws on the rich agricultural history of the Sonoma Valley, is located right in the middle of the exhibit gardens and is the perfect place for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. For your grand reception, your entire party can enjoy an enchanting evening under the circular Zephyr tent nestled in the middle of the Rose Gardens.
