Elegant + Intimate Napa Valley Summer Wedding

I love all weddings, every style, shape, season. But there are some guaranteed home runs. Classic elegance is forever chic and add in a stunning Napa Valley vineyard and my heart just about explodes. Bliss Event Productions worked their magic, and with the talents of Paula LeDuc Fine Catering and Sweet On Cake, this was an affair not to be missed, with onelove photography capturing it all. More this way!

From the Bride… To us, our family was the most important part of our big day. Having a small wedding with just family allowed us to focus on the details that would make them feel special (welcome packages, a jam-packed itinerary, a scavenger hunt for our nephews and nieces, customized menus, music, etc.). A destination wedding in Napa Valley allowed us to take our families away for an intimate celebration at our favorite vacation spot, allowing them to enjoy a mini-vacation at the same time!

The setting, Beaulieu Gardens, was the perfect backdrop for our classic, rustic-elegance decor theme. From the lawn games, to the floral tablecloths, giant peonies, and vineyards just around the corner, we wanted the decorations to subtly enhance the beautiful setting without taking away from it.

I spent a lot of time on Pinterest and Etsy finding wedding details that I loved. For example, the custom embroidered handkerchiefs we gave our parents, the custom corn hole games, the “i do” embroidery on Brian’s tux shirt, the “here comes the bride” sign, and inspiration for our welcome packages all came from Pinterest.

I learned that in the end, you will remember how you felt on your wedding day rather than all of the small details or things that did not go perfectly. My advice would be to plan your wedding around the people and things that make you and your groom feel happy and loved.

The day was simply perfect. From the moment we left the church in the vintage Cadillac, both Brian and I felt a calm come over us. We got to spend some time together before going to the reception just driving and talking; that moment will forever be my definition of happiness.

The first dance was choreographed and I felt so nervous right before. Brian squeezed my hand, said a few words of encouragement and I can’t tell you how happy I am that we did it! It turned out perfectly.

From L’Relyea EventsIt does not take much for anyone to look at these two and notice that they are truly, madly, deeply in love. The ambience, design and decor of their Solage, Calistoga wedding was nothing short matching the romance that these two exude. With elegant white details and pops of blush floral, this wedding created sophisticated aesthetics with modern elements. The simplicity of decor leaves the attention to detail in the stunning floral arrangements and use of space. At the end of the night, the newlyweds danced the night away with their closest family and friends and the bride rocked a short reception dress and flip-flops to join in all the fun there was to offer.

From Jenna Marie PhotographyCarolyn & Allen were such a joy to work with! Their wedding was traditional and elegant and Calistoga Ranch was the perfect backdrop for their neutral color palette. They were married overlooking the ranch’s private lake and then invited into the wine cave for an amazing four-course meal paired perfectly with local wines. Cole Drake Events and Meredith Law absolutely nailed the design and florals with pops of gold and a hint of vintage.
