Napa Valley in the fall is a magical thing. We returned to one of our favorite place of all time, the lovely Auberge du Soleil, to celebrate a big day for Elaine and Charlie. It’s clear that these two spent a great deal of time planning a perfect day for so many friends and family who gathered from afar, because every little detail was as pretty, glamorous, and inspired as the other! From a sparkly coffee mug, to the decadent lavender-themed dessert table and the bride’s two gorgeous dresses, they made sure it was all picture perfect (which made our job much easier!). They celebrated their first glass of wine as newlyweds overlooking an epic view of Napa Valley, and walked down the aisle showered by rose petals and well wishes. The wedding was simple, elegant, and so full of love. After the party was all over, we spent some time exploring the nearby vineyards for some dreamy portraits, which made the day all the more perfect!

First impressions are not always what they seem! When we first met Rebecca and Michael, they were laughing and teasing each other, and we thought for sure they were that fun couple that would be making us laugh all day. While that did seem to be true during the first half of our day together, nobody expected waterworks during the ceremony! Michael turns out to be quite a writer (and a romantic to say the least), and there was not a dry eye in the house (or vineyard, to be exact). Wente Vineyards in Livermore is such a gem, and the vineyards were a magical backdrop for all the love these two showed for each other. But at the end of the day, our newlyweds really know how to have a good time, and they literally danced the night away. After party and all.

Venue: Wente Vineyards / Dress: CB Couture / Shoes: Salvatore Ferragamo / Bridesmaids: Donna Morgan / Hair + Makeup: A-List Makeup Team / Florist: The Flower House / Photobooth: Giggle and Riot / DJ: Elite Entertainment / Invitations: Minted

Gold glitter and rose gold sequins adorned their open-air reception. And believe it or not, Michael designed the cake himself! The outdoor dinner party was such a beautiful way to let their guests take in the scenery and enjoy a glass of wine under the stars. We love vineyard weddings. They always make us feel like we’re in a different country!

Stacy and Ryan are adorable together. You can tell so much about a couple by the way they interact with each other during the First Look, and the way the groom looks at his bride for the first time is priceless. On this day, both bride and groom were full of joy and having such a good time “flirting” with each other that it was contagious! We were surrounded by laughter and happy faces as we took in the beautiful day at the Riverwalk in downtown Chicago, and spent the afternoon on the Northwestern University campus where they tied the knot at the lovely Alice Millar Chapel. And of course, every cute couple needs an outrageous wedding party to add to the fun! We love Chicago, but we love the people there even more. We’re so happy for you both, Stacy and Ryan!
