This Wine Country Shoot Is Everything

There’s nothing not to love about wine country. The rolling hills, the constant sunshine and the fact that almost any backdrop includes wine – and lots of it – ensures couples will thoroughly enjoy their destination wedding or honeymoon. One of our favorite destinations (and vintners) in Napa Valley is Domaine Chandon. The spectacular open spaces and delectable sparkling wine are an idyllic marriage to help start your own. 

A talented group of vendors came together to create magic in an unforgettable place. Tyler Speier was the genius behind both the overall design and the floral creations. Speier brought in pampas grass and greenery along with soft pastels to accentuate the ethereal light Napa Valley is known for.

Our stunning bride just beams in her Amsale gown while her dashing groom steals some attention in his burgundy tux by Friar Tux.

The ceremony set-up is ideal for any size group and takes full advantage of the beauty of Napa.

Set on the Oak Lawn at Domaine Chandon, the reception shows off layers of linens atop a natural wood table and loosely gathered floral arrangements. Thinking of keeping your gathering intimate? Even the expansive lawn feels secluded and embraces the al fresco dining wine country is so well known for.
