Valerie & Ryan Napa Valley

From The Bride… Firstly, I will say I never thought I would be a bride. I assumed that if I did find my life partner (I can be picky) that we’d sneak away to a beach in Bali and elope. That being said, as soon as I had that ring on my finger and Ryan and I started day dreaming about a small intimate ceremony in the Napa countryside, we never looked back. 

Erin from Bustle Event and her amazing team helped me put personal touches throughout the wedding, but I truly think our wedding was the perfect mix of delicate beauty and rock n’roll. Two highlights were the band and the gorgeous floral chandelier Twiggs designed for over the dance floor. We looked all over the place for a Talking Heads cover band and finally Erin found the Naïve Melodies and they were perfect!

All my vendors were beyond amazing- from the invitations featuring a sketch of Durham Ranch, the brain child of Lily Lasuzzo, owner of Lavender and Mint stationary in Houston, TX to the stunning photos produced by Sylvie Gil. Sylvie and her team actually became our wedding guests and I am pretty sure my friends would have preferred she stay until midnight with the rest of us dancing the night away! I also can’t say enough about Twiggs and the beautiful floral arrangements they created, the chandelier was an epic display of beauty and their creativity. Paula De Luc of course produced an amazing experience and even better food, those PB&J macaroons are truly sinful they are so good. Tom Foolery and their photo booth were also a hit, I think I took easily 100 snaps that night! It has to be said nothing would have come to fruition without Erin Taylor and Team Bustle. Erin is beyond amazing and her creativity, organization and responsiveness are all a bride could ever hope for.
