Wedding of Kathy and Brooks – Private Napa Wedding


THEME OR STYLE:  Wine Country

BRIDES SHOES:  None! They went missing the day of the wedding. I had to make due my borrowing my sister-in-laws shoes for the ceremony and went barefoot the remainder of the wedding.

JEWELRY/ACCESSORIES:  My pearls were lost with the wedding shoes, but fortunately, I had my grandmother’s 70 year old, vintage necklace handy. It was unique, elegant and simply perfect!

THE FUN (DEEJAY): Fog City Entertainment – Ashley Good

THE HONEYMOON: Bali, Indonesia and Seoul, South Korea

A MEMORABLE MOMENT: Brooks’s favorite moment was escaping to the vineyard for pictures with a few seconds of quiet, but my most memorable moment was right after the ceremony. All stoicism vanished as we reentered the house after our garden ceremony as we hugged, laughed and cried all at once, absorbing what had just happened.

FAVORITE IMAGE: Impossible to find a favorite. There are plenty of images which capture the beauty of the venue and sentiment throughout the event; but I always find myself intrigued with the photo showing an aerial view of the venue and guests during cocktail hour. I love picking out friends and family. I wish I knew what they were all talking about!
