Steve proposed to Emily during a weekend trip to Napa Valley. It was natural choice to have the ceremony at a vineyard too – specifically V. Sattui.
Spending time with their guests was equally as important as the venue and the details of their big day. To make sure Emily and Steve had time with their guests, a pre-wedding cocktail reception was held at the hotel courtyard before the guests were shuttled to the vineyard.
The candlelight ceremony at dusk set the stage for Emily to walk down the aisle to a string quartet playing the Rolling Stones’ Wild Horses – the song that was playing when they met. It was no easy task for the quartet but they performed beautifully.
Following the ceremony, dinner and dancing was held in the Barrel Room. During the evening, Steve invited guests to join him for hand-rolled cigars in a secluded location on the vineyard property.
The wedding celebration wrapped up the next morning with a farewell brunch held at the hotel.
