From Sylvie Gil…Amy an Mark are from New York and fell in love with Napa Valley to celebrate their wedding. They love to travel off the beaten path, take photos, drink wine and enjoy gastronomy. When I met Amy, she immediately reminded me of Brigitte Bardot… so I brought my french “panier” and my old cameras. She came along with some really cute outfits… plus of course a bottle of wine! Engagement sessions are supposed to be fun and this one certainly was…

Victoria and Daniel are from Hong Kong and have a love affair with Napa Valley because they are wine and travel aficionados! When it came to their wedding, no expense was spared as they prepared for their destination wedding for guests to enjoy at the beautiful Carneros Inn in Napa Valley. The inspiration for their wedding design was a modern and fresh approach that showed off their love for travelling and everything was custom custom custom! The apple green, peach and white color palette was the perfect pairing to match the modern space at Carneros Inn and patterns and textures were brought in to further showcase the modern design.

From Rebecca Yale Portraits… I am thrilled to share with you a beautiful engagement session today photographed at the Auberge du Soleil and surrounding vineyards in Napa. The session is very special to me because it is my sister and her fiance who have been dating for seven years and will be getting married next year in Napa. Our family has always been big travelers and Elizabeth and Rhys got engaged in Antarctica in January, so it only seemed fitting to do their engagement session while visiting a beautiful destination. We visit Napa every year and stay at the Auberge, so it holds a very special place in our hearts and was the perfect setting for their photographs.
From the Bride… Napa is one of our favorite places in the world. We go to the valley with my family every Labor Day to spend the last days of summer drinking great wine, eating amazing food and relaxing and enjoying each other’s company before getting back to real life in the Fall. We shot at our favorite hotel, the Auberge du Soleil and at a couple neighboring vineyards. We fell so in love with Napa that we decided to host out wedding there next fall. Which means, of course, that we get to spend most of our time wedding planning with a delicious glass of Napa Cab in hand!
