Ardenwood Historic Farm Wedding: Opting Outdoors

10 Oct 2019, Posted by P.J. Oswald in Weddings

For Christina and Eric, so much of life has centered around Northern California’s Bay Area. Growing up, dating, falling in love, and serving their church are all a part of the story that these two have woven together.

Buckle up for an insider’s look at Michele and Forrest’s wedding, with a bit of rain and plenty of shine.
