It is all elegance in blush and gold for today’s wedding captured by Valorie Darling Photography. The romantic color palette combined with the beautiful Italian inspired winery venue makes for a dreamy celebration!
It was a destination wedding in St. Helena, California. Trish and Chase’s friends and family live all over the country, so location wasn’t really an issue – guests would have to travel no matter what. Napa Valley was the first trip that Trish and Chase took as a couple. It was the perfect combination of adjectives – fun, intimate, relaxing, delicious! It became a special spot that they wanted to share with their friends and family. Immediately after the engagement in Italy, Trish and Chase went to Napa to begin the wedding venue search. They discovered the precious town of St. Helena. This was the first sign – Trish’s grandmother, who recently passed, was Helen. They knew she would be present in spirit. Next, they came across V. Sattui, an Italian inspired winery. And to their luck, the winery has a Michelin Star Chef from Italy come for the summer months. Here they found it, the perfect story tying the engagement and wedding together.
My mom and I went to try on dresses, not expecting to find the one. The intention was to have my mother’s dress remade based on a style that I loved. Well, that quickly went out the door. The first dress I tried on was the one. The color, detail, elegance and fit were perfect. And then to find out there’s a matching cathedral length veil. We quickly called my father and had him come meet us. The three of us together said “yes to the dress.” It was such a special, intimate moment that I will cherish forever. I felt like a princess and absolutely myself. It was a magical feeling.
We didn’t see each other prior to the ceremony, so the most anticipated moment was when the grand doors opened at the back of the church. We saw each other from a far and the walk down the aisle began. It was an incredibly special moment.
It was important to us that all of our guests had a wonderful time and were reminded what love truly is!
