Hey if you're ever wanting to do something fun close to the Bay Area- I always suggest Napa! It's actually closer than you think and as I'm sure you already know, the wine is impeccable! I always tell Dom that's where I want to retire. :D
I had the awesome opportunity to work with Jessica Angeline Photography, and I assisted on this GORGEOUS summer Napa wedding at the Silverado Resort. If you look a few posts back, you can see I assisted at an engagement photo shoot here. I was stoked to be able to go back!
When we arrived to meet Jill and her ladies, you could feel the giddy energy in the room! They were sipping champagne and enjoy a few fun moments before the craziness of the day.
Kevin and his pals were just finishing up the last minute touches. They need to do a few karate moves to get all the wedding nerves out!
The ceremony was held in the middle of the biggest trees-- talk about natural beauty and drama. I had some major heart eyes! The natural detail of the birchwood archway covered in florals just helped created a romantic setting for Jill and Kevin to speak their union to each other.
They had some awesome vows that made everyone cry and laugh (like a good movie)! The officiant also asked for their parents and grandparents to say small prayer over the rings, which was a new thing I saw. I thought it was cool to do that before they exchanged the rings.
As we made our way to the reception, people got to enjoy different things like the dessert bar, cigar smoking station and even a place to grab a comfy pair of shoes for dancing.
The toasts were made, which included an AMAZING rap song from Jill's younger sister. People ate the yummy dinner and danced the night away!
Jill and Kevin- Your friends and family were so fun to be around. That day was a true celebration of your union and it seems like you're going to be making each other laugh for a VERY long time! I'm so happy I got to capture the beauty and happiness of your wedding day. May these memories be passed down for generations! Cheers my friends!
