Meritage Resort Wedding // Napa Valley Destination Photographer // Elle and Bryan

FILED IN: Napa Valley

I see a lot of love ~  a lot;  It’s one of the great things about my job.

I get to hear couples’ stories about how they fell in love and what their love means to them ~ It’s pretty damn awesome, frankly.

Seriously…these two and their story…

Romantic.  Magical.  Dreamy.  Poetic.  Starry-eyed.  Enchanting.  Fairytale-like.

Did I say “Fairytale-like”?  I’m saying it twice  – Fairytale like.

Bryan and Elle met in the elevator of their San Francisco apartment building ~ They ended up being next-door neighbors.

That is when their romance started.

Fast-forward one year; Bryan planned a trip to Paris to celebrate their one-year anniversary.

Little did Elle know that not only was it an anniversary celebration, but it was the trip that would change her life.

Bryan surprised her by proposing in front of the Eiffel Tower.

The following year encompassed a house remodel, multiple surgeries for Bryan and wedding planning ~

And even with that, there wasn’t ever a time I met with these two that they weren’t gaga over each other.

Enjoy these photos from their wedding at The Meritage Resort in Napa.  

Don’t overlook that ring shot, either.  Bryan took 4 months to design  that gorgeous piece of bling.

The canary diamond stone is 5.08 carats…because their first date was 5/8/13 – Of course, doesn’t every guy think of that?

And what would make their day even better?  Robert Plant taking some time to get in on the groomsmen shots, because that always happens 🙂


*The Paris shot is not my work product*
