Congrats Lisa and Stephen!!! They celebrated their special day in the beautiful Napa Valley amongst their closest friends and family over the Memorial Day holiday weekend. I was lucky enough to join them to help them prepare for the big day. We had beautiful and moderate temperatures, compared to the 90+ degrees just a couple of weeks earlier. Lisa was a glowing bride and Stephen was a happy groom, ready to start off their fun filled weekend.
I absolutely love the Napa and Sonoma valleys. I love wine and great food, and I find Napa to be like my second home. I am so glad that I was able to work with this awesome couple in one of my favorite places of all time.
I got these great photos from Richard Wood Photography. He is one of the most sought after photographers in the Napa area. It was so nice to work with him and I hope to see him again at future weddings!!
The Holy Family Church was such a lovely Catholic mission. The church was intimate and had tons of history within its walls. Can you imagine how many marriages and special celebrations have been witnessed here? It was truly a magical place and a perfect setting to get married amongst the Napa wineries. The church even had their own vineyard growing in the back.
My favorite details were the wish tree, the special guest photos, the wine bottle guest sign in, and all of the beautiful flowers. I loved the fountain, it looked so romantic with the flowers drifting around in the water.
The bride also incorporated the wine theme in her table names; calling them Cakebread, Rubicon, Silver Oak, etc. She found these really cute wine glass place card holders that we used for the table name cards.
Her color scheme was gold, green, champagne, and pale pink. She wanted to balance off the natural setting you find in Napa.
More importantly, the couple wanted to ensure that their friends and family, who flew from all parts of the world would enjoy their time in California. They even hosted a wine tour for their guests the next day. We were also able to help Lisa and Stephen plan this fun day out.
The backdrop of the Napa Valley at sunset was breathtaking. I know that Lisa and Stephen will remember this special day for a lifetime. They are a super couple and I wish them nothing but happiness together! Congrats!!!
