How about a little nod to France on this Bastille Day? For S + S, the proposal became the inspiration behind the big day (props to the groom on that one!).  Shiv proposed on a beautiful mountainside in the South of France, so a French-inspired wedding surrounded by lush gardens and midnight blues to channel that memorable evening seemed quite fitting. With friends + fam in the Bay Area, what better locale to choose than Beaulieu Garden in Napa Valley?

See the rest of the photos by Jose Villa below…

Sara’s engagement ring was handmade from a 1860s family diamond. The bands were handmade, too.

For the NY brides, on finding her stunning Jenny Packham “Azalea” gown: Having shopped elsewhere for wedding gowns myself, and having now accompanied many New York friends to other boutiques and designer showrooms to look for their wedding gowns, I can say that Mark Ingram is really the best place!
