Jackie met with James + Ellie at the Imperial Tea Court in the Ferry Building last year and had the best time with them. James & Ellie meticulously planned every detail of their summer wedding at the Ruby Hill Golf Club in the Historic Livermore Valley Wine Country, and it was beautifully executed by the wonderful Melisa Johnson. Family members traveled from as far away as South East Asia and it was very evident that this was a much anticipated wedding, and these two were dearly loved. We arrived in the morning to the hustle, bustle, and excitement that accompanies a wedding. We love the morning before a wedding – the energy and excitement are tangible as the bride and groom get ready, the gown arrives, flower girls and ring bearers run around playing, last minute details to vows are completed, and the anticipation of the day gradually builds. We were greeted warmly by the family and treated to some delicious sushi! During the ceremony, Ellie welled with emotion as she was escorted down the isle by her Father. When they reached James, Ellie’s Father stopped briefly, took the couples hands and joined them together – it was a beautiful, emotional moment signifying not only the Fathers approval of his new son in law, but also of his willingness for Ellie to begin this new season of her life. Laughter and joy filled the warm summer air as Ellie and James made their promises to one another. Friends and family enjoyed a flawless reception, that started off with a surprise dance by the wedding party! Congratulations James and Ellie – our love to you both as you begin married life together!
What happens when two hundred and fifty Texans come to The Vintage Estate – Napa, for a Wedding? Y’all have a LOT of fun, that’s what happens! Alison and Nick celebrated with their friends and family in classic Wine Country style at one of Napa Valley’s most fabulous wedding venues. Alison looked beautiful in her vintage couture lace gown, complimented perfectly with hair and make up by Katie Nash.
During the day I was delighted to see the amount of love and attention that Alison and Nick received from their family and friends, who had traveled so far to see them married at this wonderful Californian location. Alison chose a pastel of pink and white floral’s that complimented her wedding dress and the eclectic bridesmaids gowns perfectly, adding modern, whimsical detail to this terrific cali-texan wedding!
