When designing a wedding at St Francis Winery, it's not hard to be swept away by the natural beauty every which way you turn. For Christy + Chad's fall nuptials we let the venue set the tone for the design and used a muted palette with rich pops of a color to create a wedding that complimented the venue and made for a sophisticated celebration!
Our bride and groom said “I do” in an incredible ceremony with the rolling hillsides of Napa as their backdrop. Guests enjoyed the view and romantic exchange of vows in gold chiavari chairs arranged on the lawn, while two wine barrels topped with gorgeous floral designs framed the ceremony site. Our beaming bride walked down the aisle in a timeless white gown and veil where her groom awaited in a grey suit with a merlot tie. The wedding party that surrounded them also wore complimenting shades of merlot with beautiful bouquets and boutonnieres.
The reception that followed took place on the winery’s terrace where guests were still provided breathtaking views of the property and an elegant setting to enjoy the rest of the night’s festivities. Long, family style tables were topped with neutral linens and floral centerpieces by Papillon Floral in lush peach, burgundy, cream, and merlot tones. Christy + Chad’s chairs were accented with rich green garland and custom Mr & Mrs signs for a special touch. As the evening continued, romantic lighting by Twilight Design illuminated the reception and created an intimate ambiance. For a thoughtful touch, we adorned each lady’s seat with soft pashminas to keep warm in the crisp fall air.
All of the incredible beauty of the day was captured by Mike Larson and we love reliving the memorable details. The love that Christy + Chad have for one another was so sweet and endearing, it truly created a very intimate wedding and we are thrilled to have been part of their day!
