Even after swimming in weddings day after day for some time now, I still find myself taking a deep breath as a goofy grin forms on my face when I encounter a party as pretty as this one captured by Tinywater Photography. I suppose it’s to be expected when the Bride happens to be one of the minds behind A Savvy Event and she hosts her big day in wine country – that’s almost always equals gorgeousness beyond measure, and it definitely made for one to-die-for full gallery!
From Brittany Westerman (The Bride)… I met my husband working at a hotel in the Napa Valley. As hospitality professionals, and as an event planner (I work for A Savvy Event), we had unique perspectives to planning our wedding. We knew that it needed to reflect our personalities and our relationship — and for us that meant good food, a good party and being surrounded by family and close friends. We got married on a perfect day in April — it was unseasonably warm and absolutely beautiful. Scott and I have a wonderful son together, and that made the whole day even more precious. Having our son with us while standing up in front of friends and family and committing to each other and our son was such a wonderful moment.
The entire day was beautiful, very much a family affair. My very talented friend sang at our ceremony, and the bridal party walked down the aisle to The Beatles “I Want to Hold Your Hand.” I walked down the aisle to a beautiful rendition of “Kingdom Come” by Coldplay. My brother-in-law officiated the ceremony, and our son sat in the front row to watch us get married. One of my best friends and bridesmaid is a fabulously talented graphic designer who did all of the paper goods (and the calligraphy!). The reception was even better than I imagined. We went with a blush and gold tone theme, and it looked beautiful. Everything worked out the way Scott and I wanted. It was the perfect day.
