This sun-drenched wine country destination wedding was perfectly designed to feel like a beautiful dinner party with friends.
Lori and Cale’s summer wedding in Napa Valley was a relaxed occasion with a beautiful atmosphere. Their vineyard location perfectly suited Lori’s vision of an outdoor dinner party with friends and loved ones. Every giggle and heartfelt moment was beautifully captured by the talented One Love Photography team. Full credits and photographer bio below.
Bride’s Advice: “Our wedding was a destination wedding, so I knew I needed someone local to help me vet vendors and smooth the way. A wedding coordinator really steps in the week before and day of the wedding. When all you want to do is dance on your big day, having someone there to deal with issues that pop up is a huge relief.” - Lori, Bride
Bride’s Advice: “I also highly recommend doing a first look. Get those gorgeous pictures out of the way early on so you can enjoy the rest of your day!” - Lori, Bride
Bride’s Advice: “It was important to me that our ceremony officiant wouldn't be a stranger. I asked my Uncle if he would consider registering to become an officiant and do our ceremony for us. I was nervous to ask, but he was so honored and it made our wedding day so much more special.” - Lori, Bride
Bride’s Advice: “Cale is a huge fan of Moscow mules (huge), so we knew we wanted our signature cocktail to represent his taste. For the decor, I wanted everything to be very neutral and earthy, but we were missing a focal point. Moscow mule water mugs in our table setting really elevated the design.” - Lori, Bride
Bride’s Advice: “One thing about Napa is the dramatic change in temperature from day to night. We erected shade structures for the daytime to keep everyone cool and handed out pashminas once the sun set to keep the ladies warm. The shawls were wrapped with the sweet message 'To have and to hold, when you get cold' and were a huge hit.” - Lori, Bride
