Chris & Andrew St. Helena

"We pulled our color inspiration from the persimmon tree, on the side of the house, and the stonework around the home. We wanted to embrace our surroundings and play off what was already naturally there. As a result, we drew from the beautiful fall colors, which ended up being the perfect color palate.

It was a beautiful day! The air was crisp but the sun was shining and there was no wind. The trees already had an autumn glow, but the leaves had not yet dropped. We were thankful to be surround by such amazing friends. It was the best day of our lives."
