D + D | Sonoma Napa Elopement

I {heart} my elopement couples!  There's something so exciting and romantic about the whole notion!  And let me just add that these couples don't miss out on the big celebration that a more traditional wedding might have because they return home and throw a big bash with friends and family! This is Dan and Darci.  An adorable couple who already had their wine country vacation plans set, a couple who knew they were going to get married sometime soon (but when?), so they quickly put together their elopement in just a couple weeks and it was amazing!

I arrived at Sonoma Mission Inn to meet Dan in the hotel lobby and pin his boutonniere.  In the meantime, Darci was getting ready in their suite.  Before I arranged a private "first look" between the two of them, I met with Darci and helped her with the finishing touches; zipping up her gown, my thoughts on which hair accessory, etc.  It was really fun to be a "brides maid" for a minute!

After Dan & Darci saw each other and exchanged a few kisses and tears, we hopped into our cars to a private Napa vineyard estate where the nuptials were to take place with Officiant extraordinaire, Kimberly Thompson.

Congratulations D & D!!
