Jean Luc and Lana knew exactly what they wanted when it came to their spring wedding in Napa. Think crisp, clean, minimalist design with hints of soft blue amongst a sea of neutrals. Cole Drake Events took that vision and ran with it and Jose Villa, per usual, totally delivered behind the camera. More right this way…

From Cole Drake Events…From the moment we met Jean Luc and Lana, it was clear how much this couple was in love. They were so excited to celebrate their love with one another with their closest friends and family members. Lana and Jean Luc wanted a clean design, a minimalist approach to their overall décor, and with the help of Kathleen Deery and Cole Drake Events, it was a complete success.
For the ceremony, the couple exchanged their vows under a newly designed arbor just after a fresh “good luck” afternoon sprinkle subsided. After the ceremony, their guests were greeted with tray passed beverages while they noshed on delicious canapes from the Carneros Inn. Organic linens and white florals embellished their table top while Amber Moon Designs popped hints of blue with their place cards (which also were their menus).
As a nod to Jean Luc’s heritage, guests dined on Coq au Vin, as one of their entrée choices, in a warmly lit room. Once dancing commenced, our room transformed with a color change to a dance club and guests danced well into the late evening. Jean Luc and Lana had a very specific idea of what they wanted for their wedding day and Lana’s reaction was absolutely perfect when she saw her vision finally come to fruition.

The bride, Bo? She’s kind of our new hero. Not only is she a doctor, but she’s a bride with an eye for style, and a no-detail-too-small approach to her wedding day design. Along with her other half, Michael and the pros at A Savvy Event, they planned a summertime garden wedding in the heart of Napa Valley. Don’t miss out on a single dreamy image from the incredible Jen Huang.

From Jen Huang… Bo and Michael chose to celebrate among close family and friends on a beautiful summery day at Carneros Inn. Bo is a doctor, but she still carved out time to design her own wedding. From the beautiful calligraphy and signage, to the hand-stitched blue linen folders for her invitations, there was no detail too small.
The couple wanted a naturalistic, garden-style celebration that also felt elegant and refined for their out-of-town guests. They chose to pair soft, cool-toned linens from La Tavola with antique brass and pewter vessels that Studio Mondine filled with luscious locally-grown garden roses, Dutch tulips, hellebores, vibernum, and peonies. The ephemeral Lily of the Valley, available for just a few weeks in May, were tucked into Bo’s hair and reappeared in Michael’s boutonniere with blueberries and their foliage.
Bo and Michael exchanged tearful vows on the hilltop, their guests cradled by sweetgum trees. When it came time to celebrate, guests toasted with the bride and groom’s signature cocktails and sat down to an artful, farm-to-table meal. From the careful paper details, to the thoughtfully sourced flowers and meal, Bo and Michael perfectly blended their pared back, elegant style with all that is lovely about summer in the Napa Valley.
