Napa Elopement | Vineyard Estate

By all means I don't want to jinx my good fortune, but I have to say that the weather gods have been very kind to me this Autumn! The beautiful details of Shannon & Dan's Napa elopement were all set, with one slight hiccup; rain was forecasted, potentially putting a damper on their outdoor ceremony and convertible vintage ride.  The shortest window of time opened up right on cue, allowing for their outdoor portraits and breathtaking ceremony location.  Just as they were pronounced husband & wife, little droplets started to fall on us and we all smiled like we'd been given the best gift.  Shannon & Dan savored their first kiss as newlyweds and then hurried in doors to pop the bubbly and watch the downpour begin.

They finished off their perfect day with a few winery visits followed up with a decadent dinner at Auberge du Soleil!  It was such a joy to be a part of their very secret elopement and I'm certain they'll be smiling all the way back to Minnesota!
