At the Bride’s childhood home, these two said “I do” and celebrated with the cutest little ones you ever did see, tasty treats (thanks to Paula LeDuc Fine Catering), and soft florals gathered from the garden nearby. They danced all night under one of Bright Event Rentals stunning tents and all the while, Jesse Leake snapped away, capturing every moment. If this isn’t a fairytale brought to life, I’m not sure what is. Happily ever after is in our Vault right this way…
From Jesse Leake… Elizabeth and Patrick got married in St. Helena at Elizabeth’s childhood home. It was a beautiful, sunny, hot fall day – there had been some worry of rain, but the day of the sky was bright blue and clear. The garden was lush and bountiful with blooms of fragrant roses, lavender, and grape vines.
Kathleen Deery Design arrived at the estate the morning of to clip from the hillside garden to incorporate into Elizabeth’s bouquet and the arrangements that bordered the aisle. Elizabeth and Patrick said their vows in front of families and friends at the end of a garden path backed by lush hydrangea and willow trees. Their rings were passed through the rows for guests to wish them love and happiness. Paula LeDuc Fine Catering served an array of tomatoes, smoked mozzarella, basil-avocado puree drizzled with roasted tomato vinaigrette and St. Helena Farms beef tenderloin, grilled corn ragout, crispy onions with chimichurri and poured the family wine.
Guests danced after dinner to Project M of Elan Artists – a white dance floor overlooked the valley where grapevines and oak trees stretched as far as the eye could see. Late night dancing took place in the grotto with local DJ David Carvalho and the men enjoyed Cuban Rounds on the terrace of the game room.
