Napa Valley Wedding by Julie Mikos
January 4, 2012
I have fallen head over heels in love with the cake crafted by Perfect Endings in this oh so vibrant Napa Valley wedding. Actually, just consider my heels over my head for the entire fête! The gorgeous flowers by Fleurs de France couldn't be lovelier or more plentiful, the stationery by Elizabeth Hubbell Studio is divine, and the Bride and Groom couldn't look happier! Dee Merz left no detail unturned and Julie Mikos was there to capture all the lovely in a way only she can, leaving a completely stunning full gallery of images!

From Julie Mikos...Mary Ann and Garret were wed on July 14 in Napa Valley, and celebrated during an intimate reception with 20 of their closest family and friends. Mary Ann said, "Our love is special, unique and rare. And that’s the experience we wanted to share with each other and our families. We wanted an intimate experience for ourselves and our guests, and really wanted to give everyone a taste of all that Napa Valley has to offer. We engaged Dee Merz to help us design the perfect experience, and she accomplished more than we could have imagined. Dee planned our events perfectly. She translated our vision by getting to know who we are, what is important to us, what our lives are like together as a couple, how we feel about each other and the importance our children and family. We put our trust in her and the team she choose to design the events, and she out did herself."

She said, "For the past 20 years, our family has been getting together for family dinner every week on Thursdays. Our wedding at Brix took place on Thursday, and it was a family dinner like no other!"

The couple's vibrant flowers stole the show, and afterward, "we took the flowers to the Veterans Home in Napa," Mary Ann said. "It was a fantastic experience for the kids to go and share our good fortune with veterans that have so selflessly served our country. It was one of the best parts of the trip!"
