You are going to need to sit down for this Napa Valley beauty by Adeline and Grace Photography…Sitting? Fab. Snuggled up to your computer? Good. Now we can get started, because this wine country wedding needs your full attention. It would just be criminal to miss out on all of the classically chic details and the timeless beauty of a bride – we couldn’t allow you to break the wedding gawking laws, now could we? Of course we couldn’t, which is why we highly recommend gawking over the rest of the gorgeousness in the full gallery of images!
From the Bride…Shortly after my now-husband, Keith, opened his plastic surgery practice and medical spa in Redondo Beach, he hired me to work for him. Whoops! As a couple, we discovered why it’s not always wise to mix business with pleasure. After one or two “in-office mishaps”, I decided to spread my wings and resign – effective immediately. I said goodbye to Aesthetic Edge and Marcus Facial Plastic Surgery and took up a new business…the wedding business (and let me tell you, it was a full-time job!).
Watching shows like “Say Yes to the Dress” and reading blogs like Style Me Pretty became part of my daily routine, along with getting quotes from vendors and trying to keep my sanity. Fortunately, all of the hard work paid off, and Keith and I ended up having the best day of our lives! Since our wedding was in Napa Valley over the Fourth of July weekend, I was even granted my wish of having fireworks at my wedding…however far in the distance. In the end, we couldn’t have asked for anything more!
