There are few times when, as a planner, you don’t meet your bride and groom until the weekend of their wedding. You’ve been planning together for months on end, exchanged countless emails and have had intense late night conversations about their dream day but you’ve never seen them face to face. Our Carneros Inn couple was one of these rare instances – and they were every bit of enchanting, as was their wedding, in person as they were afar.
Their wedding day started off with clouds…scary, gray, ominous clouds. The kind that a planner (and bride) fears – and creates a “back up plan” in a banquet room to use in case of rain. We pushed hard to start the ceremony early, and at the very end of the ceremony, during an uplifting verse about love, the clouds parted and a single ray of sunshine illuminated the bride and groom. It was a captivating and enchanting moment that echoed throughout their entire Napa Valley wedding.
