I wanted to share a few more images and details from the Napa Valley wedding that Lauri Levenfeld shot…
More details from the bride…
During the ceremony, the officiant, a retired judge who is a family friend and who also happened to be my trial advocacy teacher in law school, remarked that our first encounter reminded him of the song “Some Enchanted Evening” from South Pacific. This inspired our friend Matt, an extraordinarily talented singer, to perform the song for us later in the evening, since he coincidentally had the track for it in his car. He was hesitant to do so at first, since it had not been planned, but when he heard the last lines of my toast, which happened to mirror the last lines of the song, he decided he could not let the opportunity pass. It was one of our favorite moments of the evening.
My fiance’s coworker lent us a 1966 light blue Austin Healy for our wedding getaway car. During the cocktail hour we hopped in the car and drove down the long tree-lined driveway leading to the estate to share a few moments together and take photos.
The Bridesmaids/ Flowers Girls Dresses:
The bridesmaids wore espresso silk tricotine dresses in various styles from J. Crew. Ruggero’s, my fiance’s daughter, was the Junior Bridesmaid and wore a white Us Angels dress with a chocolate brown sash. The five adorable flower girls wore white dresses with green sashes from Us Angels.
My dress was designed by Christos and was made of silk organza. At my request, the tailors at Saks Fifth Avenue removed the train and painstakingly moved the lace that had been on the train onto the back of the dress, so I could move around easily in it and not drag the train on the gravel. It ended up being incredibly comfortable and perfect to dance in. Ruggero bought his navy blue lightweight wool suit by Belvest from Wilkes Bashford, and wore a green tie and dark brown Bruno Magli shoes.
The fun didn’t stop here…the couple had Lauri help them with an INCREDIBLE photo shoot after the big day. Stay tuned!
