From the beautiful Bride… We decided to have a destination wedding to take advantage of the opportunity to get all of our closest family and friends out for a vacation together. We love good food and fabulous wine so what better place to find it all than Napa Valley?
The prep for a destination wedding on the opposite coast was a bit challenging due to the time difference. Not to mention trying to sort out the logistics of getting all of our personal decor details we created for our special day. But it all paid off in the end and the whole wedding week was a dream come true. We were blessed with finding the most incredible wedding vendors locally in California and by putting our creative friends to work as well. One of our closest friends, and owner of Lauren Quinn Design created our beautiful invitations and custom wedding monogram that we used as a constant theme for the wedding. My best friend Robin and her husband David created our gorgeous custom card box.
But what really made our day so special were all of our family and friends that traveled from near and far to celebrate with us. Even my childhood Pastor, Dr. David Uth and his wife, flew all the way across the country to marry us. We couldn’t have asked for a more special and perfect day in every way!
