Chris and Courtney got married in the beautiful lands of Napa Valley, CA on a not-so-sunny, but still lovely Fall day. They said their vows in the cutest little Catholic Chapel, Holy Family Mission, and celebrated the night away afterwards at Vintner’s Golf Club with their friends and family.
There were so many special details and people included in their day. Courtney wore the same wedding dress that both her mother and grandmother wore for their weddings. Courtney's dad passed away a few years ago, and Courtney's mother gave her meaningful gifts, including her dad's handkerchief. Her two grandmothers were SO excited about the special hanger they made for Courtney, with special lace. Courtney's own brother did her makeup, which was so awesome and fun to watch all morning! They also did something a little un-traditional with their wedding day, and did not have a bridal party. I love how much that made their day even more just about them, though. It was fitting.
Despite the rain, unexpected crazy traffic, and a few other hiccups, it was still the most perfect day for these two! Their family and friends sure know how to party. The celebration through the night was definitely my favorite part of their whole wedding day! These people know how to get down and have good time.
Chris and Courtney, thank you so much for choosing me to capture one of the best days of your lives. It was truly an honor to capture so many dear moments for you guys and your family. Much love!
