It’s always a treat to have our friend Meg Smith visit us on Snippet & Ink with her beautiful photos…

Jeff proposed to Arianna on the Golden Gate Bridge, then the newly engaged couple enjoyed the weekend in romantic Napa Valley. They fell in love with its relaxed and elegant vibe, and decided to plan a destination wedding there so all of their friends and family could enjoy the wine country life, too.

What could be lovelier than a glass of lavender-scented lemonade in a wine country garden?

Nancy Liu Chin designed flowers that fit with the bride’s vision for a classic, timeless wedding.

Congratulations Arianna and Jeff!

      The soft pinks and yellows add so much charm to this incredibly romantic wedding. Weddings in vineyards are some of my favorite veneus. The ring pillow with the pretty sprig and the lavendar lemonade are beautiful details.
