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.
