When Phil proposed to Stephanie on a romantic trip to Napa, she knew it was the place to come back and have their intimate wedding. The New York couple invited 60 of their closest friends and family to join them for a weekend of fun at their favorite spots in the valley. 

They said their vows at a beautiful private residence in Calistoga, in a ceremony among the willow trees. Their wedding dinner took place at one long table on the property’s bocce court, strung with bistro lights overhead. Paula LeDuc Fine Catering wowed guests with seasonal corn soup, fresh peach salad and steak frites.

Music played an important role in the wedding fun. Stephanie selected some beautiful contemporary music for the ceremony, played by Synchronicity Strings, and surprised Phil with a gospel group for their recessional. Readings at the ceremony were lyrics to songs that held special meaning for them. DJ Chris Clouse then packed the dance floor under stars after dinner.
