This wedding anniversary session at the Carneros Resort and Spa was beyond magical! This was Carlie and Gabriel’s 13th wedding anniversary and what a better way than to celebrate it in Napa, Ca. Carneros resort had all the magic we could’ve hoped for. The open field and terrain made for some amazing pictures. Carlie wore a dusty lavender Winnie Couture gown with and encrusted bodice. The florals by Pine Apple Petals Studio made us all jump for joy-they were so gorgeous! I love how they incorporated hues from the dress, but also took into consideration the environment we would be shooting in. We wanted a bountiful bouquet and she gave us just that!
We started off the day with Carlie and Gabriel enjoying the spa for a little relaxation. Because afterall, the goal was a relaxing weekend. Afterwards, we met up to photograph this session. Carneros has amazing little niches where you can find florals and greenery at every single turn. Since we went during spring there were so many florals from all the recent rain. Actually, it even poured during our stay, but lucky for us the sun came out during our shoot.
I was able to photograph them during their bike ride, picnic session, swimming, s’more making, morning coffee and walks. Their love for one another is the sweetest! During their s’mores session they lit up a fire and had so much fun roasting marshmallows. It was so cute to see them together laughing and enjoying each other’s company. I can only hope that these pictures serve as a reminder of the immense love they have for one another.
Carlie and Gabriel it was a joy and privilege to document your 4 day stay in Napa. There are so many more pictures to show you all and I can’t wait to do so! To see more of this beautiful shoot visit Style Me Pretty.
