Priya + Will | Auberge du Soleil, Rutherford
Auberge du Soleil is a Napa County winery and resort, and Priya and Will chose it for their spring wedding. Their ceremony and cocktail reception were in La Pagode, an Asian-inspired pavilion surrounded by olive trees. The intimacy of the setting was perfect for the weddings guests, who could mingle in the outdoor sculpture garden or take in the vineyards beyond. Then the reception was held in Auberge du Soleil's Treehouse, a private dining room reached by a private staircase, and offering panoramic views of the Napa Valley.
My fondest memory of this wedding is the champagne reception/welcome party that was held the evening before the wedding, where family and friends gathered at a private estate in Napa. I was welcomed as a friend... that always means a lot to me.
