A Pink Outdoor Wedding In Napa Valley

Today, we are so excited to be sharing this romantic wedding, hosted in Napa Valley! If you’re familiar with California wine country, this award-winning hotel and resort will make you feel as though you’ve been instantly transported to Italy.

This sweet couple first met years ago during a study abroad program in Siena, while attending UC Irvine. Their connection was undeniable. After their program ended, these two ended up backpacking all over Europe together! Fast forward seven years, and Don finally got down on one knee, and asked Katherine to be his wife. We are so smitten with all of their wedding details; from their intimate outdoor wedding ceremony overlooking the vineyards, to their luxurious evening reception, we can’t take our eyes off of this special day. Their whimsical, airy wedding colors are perfect for spring and summer!

Blue and Gold Winter Wedding Shoot

Today, we are beaming about this wonderfully artistic wedding inspiration! If you and your partner are hoping to have some bold elements on your wedding day, this artsy blue and gold styled shoot is sure to impress. It’s unique and modern, and gives a refreshing spin on some classic wedding elements. While this inspiration is great for any time of the year, we especially love this theme for a winter wedding.

An art gallery may seem like an odd place to host your wedding, but it’s a great option for those of you wanting something a little less traditional. The marbled wedding invitations are sleek and refined, while the white orchids exude a certain softness within the reception decor. The blue and gold wedding colors are rich and welcoming; and it is quite possible that we have never seen such a beautiful cake before. It’s a little piece of golden heaven! Did we mention there’s also a photo booth? Remember to have fun on your wedding day! It will be over before you know it.
