Elegant + Intimate Napa Valley Summer Wedding

I love all weddings, every style, shape, season. But there are some guaranteed home runs. Classic elegance is forever chic and add in a stunning Napa Valley vineyard and my heart just about explodes. Bliss Event Productions worked their magic, and with the talents of Paula LeDuc Fine Catering and Sweet On Cake, this was an affair not to be missed, with onelove photography capturing it all. More this way!

From the Bride… To us, our family was the most important part of our big day. Having a small wedding with just family allowed us to focus on the details that would make them feel special (welcome packages, a jam-packed itinerary, a scavenger hunt for our nephews and nieces, customized menus, music, etc.). A destination wedding in Napa Valley allowed us to take our families away for an intimate celebration at our favorite vacation spot, allowing them to enjoy a mini-vacation at the same time!

The setting, Beaulieu Gardens, was the perfect backdrop for our classic, rustic-elegance decor theme. From the lawn games, to the floral tablecloths, giant peonies, and vineyards just around the corner, we wanted the decorations to subtly enhance the beautiful setting without taking away from it.

I spent a lot of time on Pinterest and Etsy finding wedding details that I loved. For example, the custom embroidered handkerchiefs we gave our parents, the custom corn hole games, the “i do” embroidery on Brian’s tux shirt, the “here comes the bride” sign, and inspiration for our welcome packages all came from Pinterest.

I learned that in the end, you will remember how you felt on your wedding day rather than all of the small details or things that did not go perfectly. My advice would be to plan your wedding around the people and things that make you and your groom feel happy and loved.

The day was simply perfect. From the moment we left the church in the vintage Cadillac, both Brian and I felt a calm come over us. We got to spend some time together before going to the reception just driving and talking; that moment will forever be my definition of happiness.

The first dance was choreographed and I felt so nervous right before. Brian squeezed my hand, said a few words of encouragement and I can’t tell you how happy I am that we did it! It turned out perfectly.

Romance

From L’Relyea EventsIt does not take much for anyone to look at these two and notice that they are truly, madly, deeply in love. The ambience, design and decor of their Solage, Calistoga wedding was nothing short matching the romance that these two exude. With elegant white details and pops of blush floral, this wedding created sophisticated aesthetics with modern elements. The simplicity of decor leaves the attention to detail in the stunning floral arrangements and use of space. At the end of the night, the newlyweds danced the night away with their closest family and friends and the bride rocked a short reception dress and flip-flops to join in all the fun there was to offer.

From Jenna Marie PhotographyCarolyn & Allen were such a joy to work with! Their wedding was traditional and elegant and Calistoga Ranch was the perfect backdrop for their neutral color palette. They were married overlooking the ranch’s private lake and then invited into the wine cave for an amazing four-course meal paired perfectly with local wines. Cole Drake Events and Meredith Law absolutely nailed the design and florals with pops of gold and a hint of vintage.

From The Bride… Dan and I met through mutual friends and began dating after we joined the same co-ed sports league. The support of our friends and family has always been important to our relationship, so we knew we wanted our wedding to be a celebration that was just as much about the people in our lives as it was about our marriage.

We chose Solage Calistoga as the site of our wedding. Not only did it offer a beautiful backdrop, their menu is incredible. Dan was sold after trying their fried chicken, which we ended up serving at our wedding.

I own a stationery studio (Vellum & Vogue) so for me the paper goods set the tone for our wedding design. I’ve always appreciated vintage goods and living in San Francisco, I fell in love with stamped tin ceiling panels. My business partner, Krystal, and I designed an invitation suite that coupled an embossed pattern inspired by tin ceiling panels with calligraphy by Anne Robin for a vintage feel. I also wanted to include a metallic element, so we created monogrammed etched copper tags used to tie each invitation suite together. We incorporated tin ceiling panels in our wedding décor as well, including custom lounge tables built by Ravizza Design. The florals were the focal point of each table. Max Gill created beautiful arrangements from garden roses and snowberries, which paired perfectly with vintage copper candle holders I’d sourced from local flea markets.

Dan made sure to put his touches on the wedding well. The biggest hit of the night was by far the ice cream sundae bar. As a throwback to childhood, Dan found miniature baseball helmets for our hometown teams that we used as bowls, just like during his Danville Little League days.

Dan and I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect wedding day. We’re especially grateful to have had Erin & Courtney there to capture our day. Not only did they deliver stunning work (that light!), they were a true pleasure to work with from start to finish. Thank you to all of our family, friends and talented vendors for a memorable start to our marriage.
