Olivia and Nick got married on a beautiful fall day in Napa and had the most romantic Beaulieu Garden wedding. Everyone got ready for the celebration at Carneros Resort. Olivia slipped into her Monique Lhuillier gown that was the perfect amount romantic and classic with just enough lace. Inside the bottom of her dress, The Wedding DeTailor had sewn a custom monogram featuring the couple’s doodle – Franklin! Dusty blue accents flowed throughout the wedding day design – from the watercolor wedding invitations and blue embroidery on the family handkerchief to the bridesmaids dresses – it was a subtle non to “something blue.”
Nick and Olivia shared a first look at Carneros Resort before hopping into a vintage car and making their way to the wedding ceremony at Mont La Salle. Olivia walked down the petal filled aisle, escorted by her dad, as family members wiped back tears. Throughout the ceremony, Olivia and Nick exchanged glances, soaking up the fact that this day was finally here.
Guests drove down the iconic entrance of Beaulieu Garden and made their way to the cocktail hour around the fountain. Signature cocktails were served along with passed h’ordeuvres. As they made their way to the sycamore-covered reception space, they found their mini bottle of champagne indicating which table they could find their seat. The reception space for this Beaulieu Garden wedding was remarkable. In the sycamore trees twinkling with lights hung hundreds of glass orbs with candles floating above the centerpieces. Long tables were mixed between smaller round ones that had fun rattan lighting fixtures.
The newlyweds shared their first dance surrounded by friends and family. Toasts were exchanged, meals were enjoyed, and the sun set over Napa Valley. Olivia, Nick and their friends danced the night away with the help of Hip Service band. It was a phenomenal celebration honoring a beautiful, fun-loving couple!
