Guests received a truly luxury experience at this Napa wedding

ranch wedding

Natalie and Sean met while on the rowing team in college. Their Napa wedding was all about providing a luxury experience for their guests, including their beloved dog Wally, who traveled with them to Napa to be a part of the wedding ceremony. The gorgeous Stanly Ranch Auberge property was the perfect setting! The couple hosted 60 of their closest family and friends for a (gluten-free!) weekend in wine country, including a welcome party at Brix, St. Helena, and a post-wedding brunch at Stanly Ranch.

A tradition of style

Natalie wore a number of special accessories, including a pin-on for her bouquet that was made by her mother and included a piece of her mother's wedding veil, as well as her great-grandmother's wedding dress. Natalie also donned a bracelet that had been passed from bride to bride between her mother's bests friend's family and close friends - it was the same bracelet Natalie's mother wore on her own wedding day!

Truly gluten-free catering

What made this wedding extra special was that the couple really wanted to prioritize the culinary experience. Because bride Natalie has celiac disease, the entire wedding day menu, from the hors d'oeuvres to the dinner menu, all the way through the cake and late-night snacks, were customized to provide a completely gluten-free menu, free of cross-contamination, from start to finish!
