Carats and Cake Feature Carey and Renaud!!

This wedding at Durham Ranch was so much fun!!  Carey, Renaud and Carey's mom were such a delight to work with.  Every one of them with a sly sense of humor and a love of laughter.  Carey and her mom crafted the table assignment card board themselves.  The Spazmatics band was a hoot, scrambling around those hay bales and a treat to work with.  Instead of cake they chose Laurie Lucov to make absolutely scrumptious pies, tarts and cookies.  Elaine Bell's food was so very delicious.  Polly of Valley Flora's florals and decor exuberant, colorful and whimsical.  A love fest with the fabulous bride, groom, family and guests!!

Natalie & Ysbrant at Black Swan Lake in August

One of our absolute favorite weddings and favorite families of the 2014 season.  Could a bride be more gorgeous than Natalie and how about that handsome Ysbrant?  Absolutely a delight!!  So very lucky to work with the wonderful team of Mollie Jones Hennes and Tim Lilly at Paula LeDuc Catering.  Paula even paid a visit to say hello to mom and dad of the bride, who she has known for so many year.  Jose Villa's photos are beautiful and the ever fabulous Kathleen Deery Design providing stunning florals.

Although it was 100 degrees for Celeste and Charles' wedding at Spring Mountain Estate in St. Helena last weekend. . . don't they look cool and calm?  I love the lavender hillside at this exclusive property.  It looks as if they are in the French countryside instead of the Napa Valley.  Beautiful couple and it ended up being a gorgeous evening.
