It’s hard to imagine a day when I didn’t know that this wedding existed, because now? It’s all I can think about. A Napa Valley stunner from Kristin Newman Designs and Gathering Floral + Event Design, it’s the kind of day you grow up dreaming about with lush, beautiful blooms, a take-your-breath-away ceremony and a stunning bride and groom filling every last moment with unimaginable pretty. And the gallery of gorgeous images captured by Dan Chennergy? Downright amazing. Join me there ASAP.
From Gathering Floral + Event Design… The ceremony and wedding took place at a private residence in Napa Valley. The property is very well maintained and beautiful. Given that the bride and groom live on the east coast, Napa Valley was the chosen destination because the brides family is primarily from Hong Kong.
Guests entered the property through an enchanted garden. The ceremony took place by the water under the weeping willow trees. After the ceremony guests gathered for cocktail hour by the bocce ball court. As the sun set guests migrated to dinner. The reception was a seated dinner outside in the garden. It was catered by Paula LeDuc – fine catering within the San Francisco area. Not only does their food taste good their presentation is phenomenal!
Soft touches of greens and pinks were within the decor from flowers, linens, accent pillows, to printed material. Bell jar lanterns were hung from surrounding trees. Following dinner guests danced to the beat of the band Pop Fiction. Seating groups and lanterns were poolside for guests to rest their dancing soles. The night concluded as the bride and groom departed during a sparkler send off.
