October will always be a favorite month of mine for weddings. I love the change in color on the vines, slightly cooler, crisp fall weather, golden sun and a true spirit of family and harvest. Erin and Evan were married at St. Helena Catholic church in a traditional mass. Afterwards, we gathered in the olive tree garden outside the church for formal portraits before heading to the historically beautiful CIA Greystone for Erin & Evan’s cocktail hour and dinner. With a design of natural greenery, luscious flowers and romantic linens, the evening was visually stunning. I personally loved their olive oil favors. Very Napa Valley! After a few heartfelt toasts, and formal dances where I teared up capturing Erin and her dad dancing, the live band really got the party going! This day was such a wonderful display of everything I love about October weddings in California!
