Timeless Elegant Wedding at Sherwood Country Club

Elli & Gordon had a beautiful and traditional wedding at the Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, California.

College sweethearts Elli Son and Gordon Dickson tied the knot in an elegant ceremony that drew on Elli’s Korean heritage. The two met at their freshman orientation at the University of California, Davis, and formed a friendship while living in the same dorm. When the big day arrived, Elli and Gordon’s vision of a timeless, classic and sophisticated special day took place at Sherwood Country Club. The ceremony was an emotional experience for the couple and their loved ones, beginning when Elli’s father walked her down the aisle to Kina Grannis’ “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” tears streaming down his face as they reached Gordon. Elli and Gordon were the next to fall apart, barely able to say their vows through their tears. During the reception, after dinner and toasts, Elli exchanged her Cocomelody lace-detailed plunge dress and her long cathedral veil for a traditional Korean hanbok, and Gordon did the same, changing from his tuxedo, with pastel flowers in the lapel, into a hanbok. The smoothly running celebration was a relief to everyone after having to set back the original wedding date due to COVID-19.
