Rachel & Sandy | Private Estate Wedding

This wedding was one I will never forget! Start with a gorgeous private estate in the hills of Napa, add in a fun loving, outgoing couple with a rocking group of friends and family and a bounce house and you’ve got a party! Yes, I said that right – a bounce house! A wedding with a bounce house is certainly a first for me and I gotta say, I hope it wasn’t the last! From the moment we connected, Rachel and Sandy were adamant that they wanted an awesome party – one their friends and family would never forget. The more we talked, the more I got a true picture of who these two are: an insanely compatible, social couple who truly enjoy life. Beyond just that, they are supportive and so loving towards each other, completely unafraid to be who they are.

Rachel and Sandy were certain to aknowledge their closest friends and family throughout the day. They had silly items placed at various table settings that signified inside jokes, a close friend officiated their ceremony, dinner was tacos and a french fry station and probably the coolest feature, a secret bar hidden on property with Rachel’s late father’s favorite cocktail. Everything about this day was THEM! It always excites me when a couple isn’t afraid to create their own traditions. It makes for such a unique and special day.
