Monique + Tony

December 13th, 2011

Monique and Tony’s Napa Valley wedding at The Carneros Inn was simple, intimate, and gorgeous. The couple decided to take the marriage plunge after their long 15 year relationship by eloping with a Napa Valley wedding ceremony, no guests, no reception, just the two of them.

When Monique contacted us at Tinywater about her Napa Valley wedding, she told us that one of the most important moments she wanted us to capture was the first look between her and her groom. This meant including all of the beautiful, raw, honest emotions that went along with seeing the love of your life for the first time on the day you marry them.

After the first glance commenced and the tears finished falling, the wedding party of two headed towards The Carneros Inn’s apple orchard for their ceremony. Among 27 acres of farmland and seemingly endless rows of grape vines, The Carneros Inn apple orchard is perched on the edge of the property overlooking the miles and miles of vineyards. It was the perfect spot for this Napa Valley wedding, especially because the couple’s biggest inspiration for their wedding day was their kids! Monique explains, “Our daughter Gracie always tells us she loves us, ‘Like over the hills over the hills.’”

After Monique and Tony’s intimate ceremony, we followed them around the property, exploring and taking advantage of all of the beauty Napa Valley has to offer.

It was not hard to feel the love beaming between these two. Being together for 15 years, we were ecstatic to be able to have the privilege of capturing this couple’s deep love for each other in such a gorgeous setting.

I love the rustic flower bouquet and boutonnieres the bride and groom sported, especially paired with the unexpected pop of Monique’s candy apple red shoes! In our next and final installment from Monique and Tony’s Napa Valley wedding, the bride changes out her heels for whimsical country cowboy boots to head into the vineyards for more wedding portrait fun.

We can’t wait to share a few more photos from this unique Napa Valley wedding at The Carneros Inn!
