We’ve come across the name Cornerstone Gardens many times over and over again. When starting out the research for this wedding venue I went onto their website and was in awe by how beautiful, artistic and different this place is. I also could not wait till Leela and Jeff’s wedding here. I knew that this Cornerstone Gardens wedding is going to be amazing and just like I expected it was straight out of a wonderful fairy tale.

Leela’s vendors were just just fantastic – from Jennifer of Lush Floral who did an amazing job with flowers, to DJ Roger from AMS Entertainment, Cornerstone’s wedding coordinator Kristen Stimpert, and super yummy cupcakes from Sift Cupcakery. My personal favorite though was the day’s catering company – Elaine Bell Catering. The food looked beautiful, was really tasty, and the service was just fantastic. I got their card at the end of the night – they are definitely one of our top choices for our own wedding.

A short and sweet ceremony was held near a pool of water with overgrown with lilies. Following the ceremony the guests were invited to the Birch Garden for cocktails and encouraged to explore the nine acres of the garden and enjoy the art.

The wedding was just perfect – intimate and relaxed, with everybody having lots of fun! Here are some favorites:
