St. Helena Catholic Church + Black Swan Lake Estate Wedding

Weddings are at their best when everything comes together so perfectly – so exquisitely – that everyone involved is keenly aware that they are taking part in something profoundly special. I have had the pleasure of working with Kristin and Nick and their families for nearly a decade. In fact, I'd recently shot their engagement party in Calabasas, and was excited to take the trip up to Napa Valley for their nuptials.

Joining me were some of the most consummate professionals in the industry. Longtime friend of the family Daniel Combs from Encino's Syndicate Salon created a work of art, elegantly arranging Kristin's hair and makeup. Even before stepping into her strapless wedding gown, Kristin was radiant against the lush tree-lined vista at Meadowood resort. The ceremony at St. Helena Catholic Church and the reception at Black Swan Lake Estate were draped in soft shades of ivory and blush. Los Angeles-based West Coast Music sent up one of their best acts – The James Gang – for entertainment. And holding it all together was event coordinator Rebecca Feeney of Custom Event Group, whose delicate attention to detail shines in every photograph taken that evening - so much so that Kristin and Nick's wedding has been featured on Style Me Pretty!
