If you’re looking for the quintessential California wedding, look no further. This Napa Valley celebration hits every note, from epic farm-to-table feast to romantic winery views. Onelove Photography captured every inch of this summer soiree and I predict these pics becoming the new go-to source for all those seeking some rustic west coast wedding inspiration.
From One Love Photography… This couple loves Calfornia for it’s culture: live folk music, wine and fresh produce, and wanted to showcase this at their wedding. It was all about the food! Guests were greeted with Spiked Strawberry Lemonade. Signature drinks were Greyhounds and Cucumber Collins, along with a Fine Scotch Bar.
From The Bride… Wine country is really special to us as a couple, so we didn’t want to do anything too flashy to overshadow the beauty and simplicity of that region. We picked all local wines and beers, and the food was farm-to-table. We are city and country so there was an elegance to a lot of the elements in the wedding while keeping the overall vibe down to earth. Adding the live Bluegrass band and having our first dance be a George Strait song while dancing in the dirt in Jimmy Choo’s and eating fresh oysters is a perfect example of how we tried to compliment various sides of our personalities and who we are as a couple.
Our venue had a balcony that overlooked our cocktail area and after the ceremony we headed up there to do a quick toast. First we spent about 10 minutes alone relishing what had just happened. Once we stepped on to the balcony it was so fun and touching to look out over all of the people we love most in the world.
Also our first dance is absolutely burned into memory, every second of it was delicious to just be completely wrapped up in each other and the moment.
