Today’s blog entry features Mica and Christopher’s Beaulieu Gardens Wedding. There is no other way to say it than this Napa Valley wedding venue is absolutely breathtaking. There’s a reason Beaulieu Gardens is the choice of many couples planning wine country weddings. With lush landscaping, charming bridges, fountains and stone cherubs, this romantic garden setting is perfection. If you’re interested in having a Beaulieu Gardens wedding, definitely contact the team at Paula leDuc Fine Catering as they have an exclusive contract to host events in the gardens.
The drive up to the estate is lined with sycamore trees providing a canopy entrance. Upon arrival, guests walk down a long lane lined with a white picket fence, which you’ll see below has been adorned by the fabulous Kathleen Deery Design and team. Passing the fence brings guests to the lovely and lush green cocktail reception area; then its on to the ceremony space centered around a beautiful pool with stone cherub fountains. Walking across a white bridge under an arbor takes guests to the reception area where dining tables are set beneath an immense sycamore arbor. Late night dancing commences underneath a starlit sky. A perfect romantic evening.
Below you’ll see the highlights from Mica and Christopher’s gorgeous wedding. Mica, an actress and dancer, is absolutely stunning and awed guests by wearing 4 different gowns. The fluffy pink ballgown worn for the ceremony is from the Lazaro Bridal Collection. The second gown, a Claire Pettibone, was worn during cocktail hour in the garden. When Mica donned the third gown from Berta bridal, it was time for portraits in the vineyard and the evening reception. Finally, for dancing the night away, Mica opted for a short dress from Grace Loves Lace.
Many wedding guests traveled north from Los Angeles and the bride and groom enlisted Favor Custom Gifts to create wine country-themed welcome boxes prepared with luxury refreshments and a fresh pink peony. The venue was decorated with gorgeous flowers everywhere- draped over a garden bridge, hanging above the tables, climbing down the sides of the arbor. I always love photographing a romantic garden wedding when Kathleen Deery is the floral designer. The plated dishes by Paula le Duc Fine Catering were works of fine art, fitting for a chef’s wedding celebration. (Did I mention Christopher is a chef?!) Throughout the entire weekend, Jamie Gansler of A Savvy Event kept everything seamless and on schedule.
I hope you fall in love with this beautiful Beaulieu Gardens wedding and gain a little inspiration for creating your own romantic garden wedding.
