Big news from California - I am officially married! We had an incredibly magical wedding at Calistoga Ranch in Napa Valley with 40 close family and friends. We were blessed with perfect 80 degree weather and sun to light the most beautiful photos. My father, David, married us and my best friend, Mat, walked me down the aisle. I will let the photos tell the story and keep this short! I spent the morning of the wedding at the Spa - relaxing, detoxing and soaking up the emotion of the day. After the spa, I joined my bridal party and moms in our suite. We enjoyed amazing cheddar chive scones and yogurt from Dean & DeLuca (so yummy)! We spent the day listening to music, drinking mimosas and were beautified by the ladies of Bella Bridal - it felt like the best slumber party of my life!
We chose to have a first look - something very untraditional but logistically perfect! Vivian, our fabulous photographer, captured such genuine emotion on our wedding day! She was a great find during my world wide web research. I am pretty fab at finding wonderful vendors, and ready to be a destination wedding planner!
I truly embraced being a bride, not an event planner! I didn't lift a finger, except to sip champagne. We wanted our day to feel like a celebration of our love. We kept our guest list short and sweet - only the VIPs! We were able to hug and chat with every guest. Now, almost a month married, we are madly in love with the photos Vivian captured. After a year of planning, we are so excited to be husband and wife! Enjoy the photos and stay tuned for a post about adventures from Maui and Kauai!
