Good morning. We come baring gifts of the wedding kind. If you are in the mood for a floral extravaganza, you have come to the right place. This is a serious swoonfest and that's not all this wedding is toting – the food is pretty drool-worthy as well. I don't think it gets much better than pizza and tacos. Sara Remington of Anna Kuperberg Photography, snapped all the pretty pictures and Rebecca Feeney worked her design magic to create this gorgeous fete. Feast your eyes on their latest installment of wedding goodness straight from Napa Valley and catch the full wedding in the gallery.
Jonathan and I met while working for the same company in San Diego, and we ended up co-managing the largest running store in the US together. Jonathan proposed on Valentine's Day (it is my least favorite holiday, so I was not expecting it!) We went for on the beach in San Diego and after we finished Jon got down on one knee and pulled the ring out of his running shorts! When we started to think about the big day we both knew that we wanted it to reflect our laidback, fun-loving personalities, and our passion for running which brought us together. After a recent trip to Napa we decided that Napa embodied casual elegance we were searching for and we absolutely fell in love with a winery that has been in my family for many years, Silver Oak. Jon is from Rochester, NY and I am from Oklahoma City, OK and with friends and family from all over the country we thought a destination wedding made sense.
The next step would be hiring a wedding planner and after interviewing a few, Rebecca Feeney of Custom Event Group stole the show with her fantastic ideas and impeccable ability to translate the style that we were seeking. She brought the entire day together, and was the inspiration behind each beautiful element. I would highly recommend her to any bride for her ability to translate my vision and her wonderful ideas!
The flowers were done by Kathy Hoffman. I could tell after talking to her just a few times and sending some pictures that she really understood my vision. In fact, the flowers were more beautiful than I could have ever imagined and the simple vases and natural table clothes allowed the flowers to make a statement in a very natural way. It was simply breathtaking!
At the reception 2 vintages of Silver Oak cabernet were served, a Pinot Noir and a Sauvingon Blanc from Silver Oak's sister winery Twomey. We had 3 food stations. Two of the stations were done by Sage catering, and we used Silver Oak's pizza oven as one station. Pizza is a big part of Jon's Italian heritage, and also Jon's favorite food! We also featured Grampy's Sundae Bar by Three Twins ice cream as a tribute to my late grandfather, Grampy, who would eat an ice cream sundae with almost every meal!
