Classic Elegant Wedding in Napa with Family Style Reception
Brie and Michael married in the beautiful Napa Valley and their vision of classic green and white provided the most elegant style for this outdoor wedding. Our favorite part? The long family style reception tables with festoon lights hanging overhead. I can just imagine the relaxing scenery and good times their family and friends had at this stunning wedding!

From the bride, Brie: "Our vision for the day was playing up the beauty of being outdoors in Napa during Harvest. Michael and I have spent an incredible amount of time here over the years, and knew it would make the perfect backdrop to a clean, classic, elegant event. It is the most incredible time to be in the valley, and we wanted to make sure to not take away from the insanely beautiful surroundings of Meadowood - there's not much you have to do to make this place look good! The long tables were really a vision I've had my entire life. For all our family gatherings, we've done long tables so to me it felt really like one really big family dinner, sitting under the dark sky with beautiful warm lights. I also think it made it easier for people to get up and move around, and not be tied to a certain table - it was like hot potato with the seats! The memories of this are honestly making me tear up! And as you probably noticed, our group loves a good cocktail, so we wanted to make sure everyone relaxed, drank, and DANCED! We'd seen our band play 3 separate occasions at this point so we knew they'd be able to bring it!
In all honesty, just being able to bring the people that mean the most to us together on this very special day was all we could ask for. We had an event that was beautiful, easy for people to relax at, and really just ENJOY being in a magical place on the most PERFECT night of weather anyone could ask for!"
