John and Carlie’s Napa wedding
John and Carlie! They are a seriously rad and sweet couple! Geoff and I made a trip up to Napa to Trefethen Family Vineyards (where Carlie’s dad is a winemaker) to be a part of their Napa wedding celebration. Napa was just perfect for a wedding. We were all afraid of a rain out, but the clouds cleared just in time and it was a beautiful day. We got to start off the day with with Carlie and her ladies as they got ready.
We took some rockin’ bridal shots with Carlie who was the perfect model, ie. GORGEOUS! Get on with your bad self Carlie! These are some of my favorite bridals!
Geoff and the guys prepped for the day at John’s dad house. He made the boys lunch while all the groomsmen pitched in to make sure John was dressed properly.
Then the boys headed over to the winery for some fun photos.
While it was fun being in stealth mode trying to keep these kids from seeing each other before the ceremony, we were so excited to see them get hitched! It was ceremony time! John and Carlie were married by a friend (which I highly reccomend!) and wrote thier very personal ceremony which started with the first lyrics of “Such Great Heights”, one of my favorite songs.
We hung out with the whole bridal party for a while…
…then stole the newlyweds away for some epic portraits.
I couldn’t help myself from taking some more images of the lovely Carlie in her princess dress.
Then it was on to the reception! Food and party time!
Check out this awesome cake that was made by Carlie’s friend. There were two flavors, homemade Rainbow Chip and Muddy Buddy. That’s right, I said Muddy Buddy. They were both equally scrumptious! (Sorry John and Carlie, I can’t pick sides!)
Congratulations to you both John and Carlie! We loved meeting you and having the opportunity to be a part of the start of your lives together! We wish you many years of happiness!
