Emily + Mike: A Tuscan Winery Wedding

We’re back with the last installment of this gorgeous rustic wedding in the ever-scenic Napa, California! Emily and Mike’s wedding was full of details designed by the bride and enhanced by the gorgeous scenes at the Andretti Winery. This intimate affair included only the bride and groom’s closest friends and family from Minnesota for a fun-filled weekend in Napa – culminating in their fabulous wedding! And so without further ado, here are more of our favorite moments post-ceremony!

We love the rustic browns, greens, and plum that make the reception decor feel truly Tuscan.

The bride’s romantic braided hair is to die for! Usually anything but an updo comes off as bohemian, but we love this chic look!

Meatball marinara sliders! Fun appetizers make for happy guests! Don’t be afraid to add food you’d actually be excited to eat for your wedding day.

The whole reason Emily and Mike wanted a Napa wedding was for the gorgeous views it offers; there is really nowhere else like California wine country!




We asked Emily what the most important thing to her was on the “big day”…. “To create the most romantic, sentimental, sincere day of love and romance. We want the day to be very relaxed and timeless.” We think she pulled it off!


Emily and Mike really wanted some memorable portraits – it’s always a good idea to take a moment to step away from your wedding and connect with your new spouse – the day is about you two, after all!


This dreamy dance floor is all about romance! Twinkling lights make for a completely enchanting outdoor reception.


Emily and Mike truly created a timeless wedding. These images could be from any era, and they would still be the perfect picture of a couple in love!


Emily and Mike’s wedding included three separate cakes, interspersed as mini centerpieces at their reception table – each with it’s own over-the-top cake stand! The fact that they are all unique made for a beautiful tablescape!


We loved spending a beautiful day in Napa with Emily and Mike, and appreciated all the time and effort they put into making this day perfect for them! Andretti Winery was the perfect venue for their escape from Minnesota, and we were glad to join them! Best of luck you two lovebirds! xoxo
