MEET Christa

One thing we love about our couples is that they have exquisite style. S + N were no exception. This fun, laid-back couple chose to plan their destination wedding at the beautiful Calistoga Ranch nestled deep in Napa Valley. 

With the help of their amazing Wedding Coordinator, Callista of Callista & Co, they have curated a beautiful palette of soft yet classic colors and decor for their summer vineyard wedding. Our bride wanted a very natural, barely there makeup look with a balanced look all the way around. For her hair, we went with a very clean low bun with some soft texture and volume. 

Our absolute favorite part was one of the wedding party members, the bride’s flower girl and furbaby. She was the cutest with her flower necklace and was so ready to strut down the aisle. 

S + N’s wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty a few months ago and just this week had the best one year anniversary gift of being featured on Carats and Cake. We are so grateful we had the opportunity to work with S + N and all of the amazing vendors who were a part of their beautiful wedding. They had a wonderful year with N, the groom’s, restaurant being featured in Bon Apetit Magazine in addition to starting the new chapter of their lives and can’t wait to see all of the wonderful things the future has in store for them. 

S sent the sweetest compliment after her wedding regarding her beauty experience: 

“Thank you so much for everything! I felt my most beautiful, thanks to you, and everything held up wonderfully! I so appreciated your patience and kindness during a stressful morning – thank you so much!”
