Elegant European Wedding Inspiration In Napa Valley
Today’s elegant European wedding inspiration is coming to us from the Napa Valley with jaw-dropping style on every level. Set on a gorgeous vineyard with a French-style chateau, this editorial has everything you want in a wedding: a touch of Southern charm, garden enchantment, and of course, romance. The naturally lush land and old stone walls create a beautiful backdrop for any event. Vintage-style details and the bride’s soft blue skirt add a unique twist to this timeless affair.
Shot by O’Malley Photographers, we are hearing love songs in our heads as we browse these artistic photos that scream passion and love.
Valley & Co‘s intentional floral designs were inspired by the historic chateau itself and the old-world charm of the winery. With stunning vineyards and stone walls, the designers wanted to highlight timeless, organic beauty.
Hand-torn stationery with sketches and illustrations from Momental Designs was the perfect compliment to this natural, organic scenery. Hints of blue compliment the color scheme that is seen throughout the overall wedding design.
We love this bride’s effortless mix of tradition and twist. This blue bottom dress with its’ fitted lace top from Sweet Caroline Styles will certainly have people talking!
From the Event Designers, Valley & Co Events: Inspired by the old world craftsmanship of Whetstone Wine Cellars in Napa, we brought to life a romantic vision steeped in story. Incorporating rich velvet linens, hand-torn and painted stationery, delicate lace, tendrily vines, and charming garden roses and pears, a timeless wedding setting was created nestled underneath a sky-high stone wall draped in lush greenery.
A timeless setting can lend itself as the perfect blank canvas to tell a wedding day story – dressed with stately tables, decadent flowers, and bursts of romance throughout, this stone winery’s grounds became an enchanting backdrop for our bride, donning the most exquisite pairing of classic lace and an unexpected icy blue skirt. Her whimsical bouquet was woven with ferns, Autumn Joy, hydrangeas, garden roses, and clematis vine.
These delicious images of thoughtful + organic wedding inspiration appear in Valley & Company Events‘ new book launching on November 6, Storied Weddings, which has far more purpose beyond coffee table aesthetic.
