Cornerstone Sonoma





Cornerstone Gardens is an ever-changing series of walk-through gardens, showcasing new and innovative designs from the world’s finest landscape architects and designers -- making it a truly unique venue for your wedding. As the first such gallery-style gardens in the United States, the 9-acre Cornerstone Gardens has a variety of options when it comes to setting the perfect ambiance. The Wedding Garden is a profusion of white roses, silver olive trees and stunning seasonal perennials ring this lush, private walled location which also incorporates a half acre of lawn for a dinner underneath the evening stars or take it up a notch in luxury with custom tenting. The Garden Barn, with a gentrified nod to the pastoral surroundings, features large double sliding doors that open on all sides offering a panoramic view of the gardens as well as the surrounding hills. The Vineyard Lawn, adjacent to the gardens and bordered by Pinot Noir vineyards to the east, is a more private location featuring a stunning reflecting pond that stretches the length of the lawn to create a calming oasis. Easily one of the most beautiful wedding spots in the Bay Area, Cornerstone Gardens is the prized jewel of Sonoma Valley.
