I have a long list of favorite weddings. Say what you must, but you try to surround yourself with pretty soirees day in and day out and not have a list resembling Princess Di’s veil. Every day I add another wedding (or three) to the list. I just can’t help it. But as soon as m three studio sent over a wedding she captured at Milwaukee’s Pier Wisconsin, I had found the winner. This gorgeous soiree is the perfect mix of lush florals, beautiful photography, gorgeous colors, stunning people and delish details to die for. I declare this wedding not only my favorite, but my wedding soul mate. Click here for more!
Ethan and I met the first week of medical school and started dating several months later. We made it through four years of medical school, a cross country move to start residency programs and three years of training before we finally got married! (6.5 years into our relationship!)
Ethan proposed at Turnbull vineyards, one of our favorite wineries in Napa valley. Living in San Francisco makes day trips to wine country quite easy, and this Saturday started out like others with a nice drive in the convertible to Turnbull. When we arrived, we started with a private tour which ended at a private table set for lunch in between rows of vines and rosebushes. After a beautiful secluded lunch (and two bottles of wine!) Ethan proposed right there in the vines. He surprised me with an overnight stay and we had dinner that night at our now favorite restaurant, Bottega.
We took our inspiration from lots of Style Me Pretty features!!!! I wanted a blue/green accent color to pick up the greens at the ceremony and the blue water. The all white linens and centerpieces fit the clean, modern look.
I will always remember the look on Ethans face at our first look. Or my dads speech. I will never forgot the yellow legal papers he had (a whole stack!) or my mom trying to stop him when he got to a particularly embarrassing story about me.
