This is Lance and Brittany. They traveled all the way from Knoxville, Tennessee to have their wedding in the sweet, sun-kissed area of Napa, California.
If you haven’t visited Napa Valley before, it has multiple little towns outside the town of Napa itself that are absolutely charming. We visited Yountville, a perfectly quaint little town, with their streets lined with wineries. There are lots of local shops open for tourists to visit, and it is definitely a town with a charm.
Speaking of charm, when this beautiful couple came to visit California, they actually brought their southern charm with them! With their laughs, positive vibes, and sweet personality, it made for an absolutely pleasant little Yountville elopement.
If you’re reading this so far and have no idea what I’m talking about, an elopement is when a couple gets married by themselves. There is no crowd and often no family or friends there.
Brittany and Lance decided to focus their day on their love and their beautiful surroundings in Vineyard Park. Through both of these, they united with each other in marriage.
During their Yountville elopement, we stretched their wedding throughout the day at different vineyard areas.
The first picture you see below was taken in Vineyard Park shows the final moments before Lance and Brittany saw each other for the first time. Their first look was so simple yet so adorable!
Soon after their first look, they tied their vows with a local officiant.
After the ceremony in the Park was over, we visited Domaine Chandon, a local winery. The winery let us come and take pictures complimentary. This vineyard was absolutely gorgeous and made for a perfect place for bride and groom portraits!
These portraits featured one of Brittany’s favorite shawls, which happened to match perfectly with her bouquet. I loved the maroon, greenery, and white Brittany incorporated in her bouquet, dress, and shawl to really tie everything together. Lance also wore a maroon tie with a matching bouquet to continue the color scheme!
Overall, this Yountville elopement was simple, but absolutely charming. Brittany and Lance just glowed inside and out, to match the glowing sun that helped unite them.
