Carrie & Mike

August 20

St. Helena, California

From the Planner: “Carrie and Mike came out from Ohio to Sonoma, CA as a referral from another of my brides. The wanted to create an excursion for their guests and we gave them a fantastic wine country experience and showcased both the Napa and Sonoma valleys in all their beauty over four amazing days. On day one, we started out on the Sonoma side touring fabulous wineries including BR Cohn, Cline Cellars and Jacuzzi Family vineyards. On day two, we experienced the Napa side at Alpha Omega, Flora Springs and White Hall Lane, followed by a delicious rehearsal dinner at Hurley’s in Yountville. Day three – wedding day was at the Harvest Inn in St. Helena….one of the most romantic places in the valley. The bride was gifted by her parents, her grandmother’s diamond bracelet and a beautiful Tiffany’s pearl necklace from her loving groom and a note that left us all in tears. Unfortunately months prior to the wedding, the bride faced some health challenges and his letter not only professed his love for her, but that no matter what, he would be there for her till his last breath. Our final day of this wine country wedding was capped off with a ride on the Wine Train, complete with a gourmet dinner and wines from all of the wineries we visited. The perfect way for guests to relax and unwind before heading back home.”
