Napa Valley Wedding – Kristen & Nancia

RMP Couples, Travel

I am forever grateful to Sarah and the Cole Drake Events team for introducing me to Kristen & Nancia. Their Napa Valley wedding day was nothing short of a beautiful expression of support, respect and undeniable love. The amazing thing about working with a great planning team is they learn who you are and what you value in order to then pair you with creative professionals who undoubtedly are your kind of people. From our very first phone call to a literally day-long engagement session, I think I can speak for all of us when I say it felt like we'd know each other for years, rather than a few short months. Sarah also appreciated that Kristen & Nan, just like myself, are ladies of dichotomy. In bringing together a creative team of vendors that appreciate complexity, we were all able to honor the many facets that makeup Kristen & Nancia individually as well as together. They had a romantic day together, while also holding onto their fierce individual personalities (just wait until you see their wedding people go from a hilarious group of friends to smokin' fierce models!!). Kristen & Nan brought their closest loved ones to a special part of the world to celebrate while also holding onto the unique traditions of their hometown, New Orleans. And in true New Orleans style, the party never slowed down. While the food was delicious, from the very start of the reception, the dance floor was open and rarely slowed down. I could write a novel about these ladies, so for now, I'll let you get to the point and scroll on down to see a sneak peek into their heartfelt Napa Valley wedding day at the Brasswood.
