We had the pleasure of photographing a Four Seasons Napa Valley wedding this March. The venue opened in late 2021, so it is a relatively new venue and we were excited for the opportunity to be one of the first to photograph a wedding there. The property is overflowing with vineyards that will be stunning throughout the warm part of the year. The color palette for this event was blush and white – it created a classic and romantic feeling with touches of dramatic glam (just wait until you see the bride’s shoes!).
For this wedding, the couple had their wedding ceremony on the lawn by the rustic barn. The circular floral arch with the couple’s initials was an impressive backdrop, with the mountains of Calistoga in the distance. Guests were welcomed with white wine and lavender lemonade while being serenaded by a string quartet. The bride emerged from the barn in her gorgeous Oscar de la Renta wedding down covered in ruffles. She carried a petite bouquet filled with blush tulips.
Cocktail hour was held in the barn by the ceremony. Guests found their seat with the help of a blessing tree. When they found their name, they would replace their name tag with a blessing for the couple to save. Chandeliers were sprinkled throughout the barn to create a warm ambiance.
For the wedding reception, guests transitioned to the main entrance of the hotel. There they took their seats in the ballroom – the centerpiece of the space being a 6 foot-wide chandelier! Round tables surrounded the dance floor and guest sat in plush white tufted chairs. It was a remarkable evening filled with everlasting memories for the sweet couple.
A small note – this couple requested privacy, so the blog is primarily filled with detail photos.
