Norah & Chris // Annadel Estate Wedding // Santa Rosa & Napa Photographer

I’m finally taking on the extremely daunting task of catching up on the blog! I have over 50 posts just waiting for me to compose and publish them, so here I go…hope to be sharing more with you on a more consistent basis in the future.

I had to start with this lovely day at Annadel Estate in Santa Rosa, because these two are the absolute sweetest and their day was an extra beautiful one. We loved that Norah and Chris flew all the way out from Washington DC to get married in the sunshine-filled wine country, surrounded by all of their favorite people. You would’ve never known that it was pouring rain the night before. The entire event had such a warm, inviting and intimate atmosphere and every space was designed to perfection thanks to Alicia K Designs who not only did the event design and coordination, but also did all of the floral design and guest lounge areas too. Guests were well taken care of that day, and they got to enjoy so many different areas of the property from the old ruins for the ceremony, to a shady oak grove for cocktail hour to an open field with a view of the vineyards for dinner. I’m still obsessed with the custom structure thatZephyr Tents constructed for the reception. I loved how romantic and elegant the space was while still retaining a down-to-earth, rustic feel that was so fitting for a Napa wedding. It honestly could not have been a more perfect day for a more deserving couple! See more of their wedding published on Carats and Cake here, and find the full list of vendors below.
