It was a classic and timeless evening in the hills of Napa. Courtney and Patrick married at The Estate of Yountville surrounded by their family and friends. With Courtney's Custom Sarah Seven Dress being a showstopper, her bridesmaids wore two piece dresses. Pink being Courtney's favorite color, she had the color splashed around throughout the day as well as her love for copper. Brannan Events helped bring her vision to life and the perfect day for the two of them. Soon to be featured on Grey likes Magazine.
Heres a few quotes from Courtney about the day!
What made the wedding special and unique?
Patrick and I wanted all of our family and friends to get to know each other before the big day, so in the days leading up to our wedding we organized wine tasting adventures and a get together in Yountville's Veteran's Park where all of our guests gathered, and strangers turned into familiar faces. Everyone on the dance floor knew each other, that was so special to us!
We had a sand ceremony symbolizing our 50/50 commitment to each other. Courtney's dad once told her at the beginning of our 8 year relationship that, "A relationship only works if each person is putting in their share, it has to be 50/50!"
Patrick and I went around the entire wedding party table at our wedding dinner and said a special something about all of our bridesmaids and groomsmen, we wanted everyone to know why those people are so special to us that we asked them to witness and standby our side on our wedding day
What was the most memorable part of the day?
Walking down the aisle with my dad! I've been dreaming of that day my entire life, well at least from the first time I saw Father of the Bride. In fact, the movie had quite a significant role in our wedding. It was mentioned in my Dad's rehearsal dinner speech where he reenacted the first scene when Steve Martin does his monologue and it was also mentioned in my vows to Patrick.
Our grand entrance into the Barrel Room for our first dance! Our coordinator had our wedding party create a tunnel for us to go through on our way in, where we found a live saxophone player playing along to our favorite song. We did not rehearse it, but it went perfect! We nailed it!
