A few selects from photographer, Meg Smith, from a Wine Country wedding that we planned at Witt Estate in St. Helena. I just love the wood platform that we built over the pool to hold the ceremony and the casual, rustic but modern wood tables in the vineyard for dinner. Miss working with this couple and wish them a lifetime of happiness and love!

We are thrilled about the inclusion of Shoshana and Jeremy's Napa Valley wedding at Durham Ranch in the latest issue of Martha Stewart Weddings. Shoshana and Jeremy had a destination wedding for all their friends and family from New York and we could not have found a better location to suit a sophisticated city crowd in the country.
Because of Shoshana's background as a Chef we wanted the wedding to have a farm to table feel so we used lots of herbs in the arrangements and galvanized metal buckets played a big part of the decor including the washtubs that we outfitted as light fixtures to hang in the barn.
Since their wedding Shoshana and Jay have welcomed two beautiful babies into the world, Maddie and Ethan, and still live in New York City. We miss planning with them dearly, but are happy that we still keep in touch :)

Received photos from the super talented and incredibly sweet, Meg Smith, from Megan and George's rehearsal dinner at All Seasons Bistro in Napa Valley. It was such a warm evening to welcome friends and family to Napa in style.

Loving all the details in this inspired wedding suite that Atelier Isabey created for my clients, Erica and Mark. Erica and Mark were married at the Carneros Inn in Wine Country and wanted an invitation that reflected their style and the beauty of the Napa Valley. A modern grapevine letterpressed into thick paper and accented with silver foil calligraphy perfectly blended the natural beauty of Northern California with these New Yorkers city style.
A custom map that marked the wedding location as well as Erica's hometown and college of Stanford personalized the suite. Images by Atelier Isabey.

Be sure to check out Morgan and Brendan's intimate Napa Valley wedding published on Snippet and Ink last week. The Bride, Morgan, was incredibly stylish and helped direct every detail from the outfit for her adorable ring bearer to the escort card display handwritten on vintage window panes. She was a total joy to work with and she and Brendan were so in love.
Reflecting the style of the Napa Valley we used lots of olive leaves, abundantly spilling out of galvanized metal and rustic pots accented with lots of hydrangea. I loved the ceramic place card detail for each guest which made for a fun keepsake and the mini pot de creme and bubbling fruit cobblers from Girl and the Fig catering.
From the Bride:
The best advice I received was from Shannon, my planner. She knows that’s I’m a “planner” personality and she looked at me and said, “Morgan, at some point it’s okay for you to let it go and just enjoy your day.” That happened about 30 minutes before I walked down the aisle and I was truly able to trust in Shannon and her “dream team” of vendors to execute my dream day.
Thank you Morgan and Brendan! Check out the full feature here. Photos by Sasha Gulish.
