We are so excited that Stephanie and Sean's gourgious wedding at Calistoga Ranch was featured on SMP. Their fall wedding had that perfect California weather and all the color of the season. The venue is simply lovely with its vineyards, views and beautiful grounds. Stephanie and Sean had their ceremony in a candle-lit wine cave decorated with pumpkins and pampas grass. Their cocktail hour and dinner took place during sunset by the vineyards.
Here's a little advice Stephanie shared with Style Me Pretty:
"Another golden piece of advice I was given and would absolutely pass on is to budget for a videographer. My wedding planner told me this, and boy am I glad she did. Oftentimes, brides budget for flowers, music and photos. A videographer becomes a “nice to have,” not a “need to have.” We went with Grover Films. Our wedding day was so surreal and overwhelming that I think most brides would agree that when you’re in the moment, it’s easy to miss a lot of the details of your wedding. Sean and I were so relieved to have a video to watch long after it was all over. It was incredible to see everything again – to go back in time and relive those moments – and it’s a different experience than simply looking at photos."
