We have a very special relationship with the Vintage Inn located in the wine country town of Yountville. Nat and I were married in Napa and even though the Vintage House was a half an hour drive from our venue, we absolutely had to go there for our bridal portraits. From the beautiful nature to the laid-back wine country atmosphere, this boutique resort in Yountville won our hearts.
It was with great excitement that we welcomed Hilary and Ramon when we learned that their entire wedding day will take place at the Vintage House. This place lends itself well to our natural and intimate style of wedding day photography and it was a breeze to draw out emotional and unguarded portraits. Hilary and Ramon have a palpable chemistry between them and the day was truly a great celebration of two families.
We love to get to know the couples we photograph as we always learn something unique and unexpected. Ramon and Hilary have six sisters between them! With well over 20 people in the bridal party, including the ring bearers and flower girls, it took extra effort to find a nice big space for beautiful group photos. Luckily, this venue has ample scenery and plenty of shade for flattering portraits.
The hallways of Spa Villagio made for a great setting for the dress shot:
We always, always, LOVE the couple’s First Look:
The emotional ceremony took place in the warm glow of the late afternoon sun:

At night, there was a surprise for the guests as the dancing and cake-cutting took place in the barrel room:
Hilary and Ramon fit right in to the serene and amazingly harmonic feel of this venue:
