Elly + Marvan at Sonoma Golf Club


Letterpress wedding invitations with a lace design. The satin envelopes fastened with brooches look so high-fashion!


The bridal bouquet was comprised of white roses and pearl embellishments, wrapped in lace and strands of mini pearls.


The couple were all smiles!


The bride's hair looks so pretty in this curly half-up, half-down hairstyle.




The bride changing up her hair accessories! We love this fluffy feather fascinator.


Showing off the bustle!


White billowing flower arrangements lead up to the cocktail hour. The space was accentuated with white draping, tall cocktail tables, and a large mirror centerpiece.


Roses, orchids, and hydrangeas in natural tones spill out of this vintage dresser drawer.


Menu cards tucked into lace wrapped napkins were set upon gold-rimmed clear chargers.


Textures abound in this reception décor including lace-wrapped cylindrical vases and textured rosette ivory linens.


The newlyweds hit the dance floor.

Jennie + David at The Lodge at Sonoma


The wedding couple takes advantage of a photo op with this classic white car.


The bridal bouquet included big white orchids, a rhinestone bouquet wrap, and photos of loved ones.


The groom looks sharp in his black suit and white orchid boutonniere—a perfect match to his bride's bouquet.


We love the idea of using giant lanterns filled with candles along the ceremony aisle. A great alternative to flowers!


The lighting in this room is just gorgeous. The wrought-iron lantern chandelier and uplighting add an element of drama to the ceremony.


The stunning couple looks so happy walking down the aisle! A beautiful moment captured by Tara Arrowood.



We love the bride's loose, natural waves! Her easy hairstyle, smoky eyes and blinged-out wedding dress look so fashion-forward.


Wedding reception signage. Great way to point guests to the photo booth and guest book!


Check out the wedding table centerpieces! Simple, rustic branches in glass cylinder vases.


This four-tiered white wedding cake is clean and modern with delicate piping, gray fondant bands and sugar flowers.


Can you believe the couple created this photo booth wall themselves? What a fun DIY project!

Bride Reviews

“When we look back at all the vendors and services we used for our wedding, Arrowood Photography was the by far the best. Let me tell you, my friends drool over our albums.”

“Having Tara at the wedding was like having a good friend there to be part of the experience. She was a fun and supportive person to spend the day with and the comfort that we felt with her was reflected in the photographic results.”

“I can say without a doubt that we chose the best possible photographer for our lifestyle, our needs and our memories. I know this not only because of the tremendous experience we had with Tara, but also because I was beyond diligent when completing my research for Bay Area photographers. I researched no less than 25 photographers online based on friends’ recommendations and actually interviewed 9 of them in hour-long sit-down interviews. What about the images? Timeless. The 1,300 pictures we got back from our day were all perfect and full of character—ideal reminders of our day in their flattering lighting, their glowing personality, their full-of-life candor, their popping color, their extreme vibrancy.”

“Tara is awesome!”

“Tara was a calming influence before the wedding, blended into the background during the ceremony/reception, and was very helpful to/patient with us as we narrowed down pictures to use for our album. She exceeded our expectations—we have recommended her to EVERYONE.”

“I knew the moment I met her and saw her beautiful photographs that Tara was an artist keenly attuned to the emotional aspect of weddings. Everyone just looks happy and beautiful in all her shots! Both she and her assistant made us all laugh throughout the day. We have joked on many occasions that the two things we’ll grab in the event of a fire are our baby and our wedding album!”

(What does this mean?)
