Exquisite Weddings Features Napa Valley Wedding Inspiration


Just moments before Golden Hour in the late afternoon sun, this Calistoga styled shoot was a warm colored wonderland. Tucked away in a shady green grove with vineyard views, the whole affair was stunning, and we were thrilled to work alongside talented event professionals to dream up and design every inch of the affair! Exquisite Weddings magazine partnered with us to feature the Calistoga styled shoot in a recent article that hit all the highlights, and we are excited to share it with you. To see all the details of the day and read an excerpt of the feature, keep scrolling!

With a creative color palette that captured the sunset, stunning views, and a beautiful backyard event space, we The Vineyard Estate offered a lush location for a collaborative shoot that we are still raving over.

A contributor to Exquisite Weddings magazine, a bi-annual feature magazine published by San Diego Magazine, commented,

"While we’re pretty privy to Southern California’s sunny wedding climate, there’s no way of replicating the sweeping vistas—and vino—of Napa Valley.

Marilyn Ambra Party Consultants captured California’s quintessential wine country in a styled wedding shoot at their exclusive venue, The Vineyard Estate.

Tucked onto the Northern California mountainside above cascading vineyards and lush greenery in floods of cypress, the venue is so private that this shoot itself makes sense to be without guests. The beautiful surroundings and details—metallic trays, artisanal cocktails, herbal garlands, and more—are the meant to do the talking. In that same vein, we’ll let the gorgeous photos by Myrtle + Marjoram  do the same."

From the elegant outdoor furniture, to the sophisticated place settings, we loved every element of the Calistoga styled shoot and we were thankful to be involved in such a creative, collaborative event. To see the full feature from Exquisite Weddings, click here!
