Napa Engagement at Domaine Chandon Etoile

July was a beautiful month to visit the prettiest place in the U.S...Napa. Awhhh how I love the desert like feel in Napa, rolling hills in Sonoma and the great company we discovered in such a relaxed environment.  Yi-Jing and Phong choose Napa valley to solidify their marriage and 13 year relationship. We visited their wedding location Domaine Chandon Etoile and captured some dramatic and fun shots just before the rehearsal dinner. I feel like I have known this couple my entire life! I met then through a previous client (Rachel & Jason) at their wedding where we got to know each other through a hot air balloon ride over the Methow Valley in Washington State and a white water rafting trip the day before the wedding. Needless to say, we experienced some extreme heights, fears and adventures together. Yi-Jing and Phong really are phenomenal individuals.  Together they share a passion for traveling, fine wine and food!  This place really is a little slice of heaven and I am so fortunate to have shared this experience with all their amazing family and friends! A special thanks to Rachel and Jason for being such great clients and close friends! XO
