Nate and Cara are a Chicago couple who chose a destination wedding in Napa Valley. Cara's keen eye for excellence in design and love for florals is displayed throughout their wedding decor. Eighty-some guests traveled from Chicago to California to bask in sunlight, drink good wine, dance to incredible music, and celebrate two best friends unite their lives in marriage. This wedding was awe-inspiring in so many ways, and we were truly honored to capture it.

Cara's bridesmaids were awesome. Here they are practicing where to hold their bouquets to avoid the microphone effect during the ceremony.

Cara's sisters were so happy for her and helpful throughout the wedding day.  Their special relationship was evident during many different moments, especially this one.

Remember Mike and Lindsay? They recently got married at the Art Institute of Chicago. We love seeing our previous clients at weddings!

Cara's father delivered a poignant, deeply meaningful, and humorous speech affirming Cara and Nate's new marriage.

The sisters of the bride share a laugh during their hilarious maid of honor speech.
