A Bohemian Wedding That Made Dreamcatchers + Feathers So Chic

Tally and Sam weren’t about to plan a cookie-cutter wedding day. Instead, they chose the location, cast the vision, and let Sylvie Gil, Shannon Leahy, Julie Morgan, Bright Event Rentals and the entire vendor crew work their magic. The result was a fall affair with a decidedly bohemian vibe, and there are details galore just waiting in the gallery.



From the Bride…Sam and I decided very early on that we wouldn’t make a wedding decision based on what is customary. We really wanted to have a destination wedding. We narrowed it down to a few places, Charleston, Tahoe, or Napa. Sam and I love the Bay Area and we knew were going to get to visit a few times. We landed on Napa – amazing food, wine, weather…what more can you ask for? Our wedding wouldn’t have been possible without our “dream team.” We had the most amazing wedding planner, caterer, florist, photographers, DJ, make-up artist, band, videographers…Sam and I really relied on everybody’s expertise. Of course we had a vision for what we wanted, but we deferred to the experts. Everybody’s combined efforts made our wedding special, unique, stress-free, and fun!

Take a Tour of Northern Cali with these Cuties

We’ve got a full day ahead of us, so let’s get started! First up on our romantic romp through Northern California is the Sutro Baths, and then onto some wine tasting, and a dance on the shores overlooking San Fran’s Golden Gate Bridge. And our tour guides? This future groom and his bride-to-be. And the best part? Lindsay Madden snuck along to document it all – see more in our Vault right this way!

From Lindsay Madden Photography… I had the best time at Katlin and Nawder’s May engagement session which took us from the rolling hills of Napa Valley wine country to the relaxed shores of Baker Beach and lastly, we got to spend golden hour at the historic Sutro Baths in Lands End. It was a wonderful day and the perfect prelude to their September wedding in Napa Valley!
