From Rebecca Yale Photography... I am thrilled to share with you a beautiful engagement session today photographed at the Auberge du Soleil and surrounding vineyards in Napa. The session is very special to me because it is my sister and her fiance who have been dating for seven years and will be getting married next year in Napa. Our family has always been big travelers and Elizabeth and Rhys got engaged in Antarctica in January, so it only seemed fitting to do their engagement session while visiting a beautiful destination. We visit Napa every year and stay at the Auberge, so it holds a very special place in our hearts and was the perfect setting for their photographs.

From the Bride... Napa is one of our favorite places in the world. We go to the valley with my family every Labor Day to spend the last days of summer drinking great wine, eating amazing food and relaxing and enjoying each other's company before getting back to real life in the Fall. We shot at our favorite hotel, the Auberge du Soleil and at a couple neighboring vineyards. We fell so in love with Napa that we decided to host out wedding there next fall. Which means, of course, that we get to spend most of our time wedding planning with a delicious glass of Napa Cab in hand!
