Jean Luc and Lana knew exactly what they wanted when it came to their spring wedding in Napa. Think crisp, clean, minimalist design with hints of soft blue amongst a sea of neutrals. Cole Drake Events took that vision and ran with it and Jose Villa, per usual, totally delivered behind the camera. More right this way…
From Cole Drake Events…From the moment we met Jean Luc and Lana, it was clear how much this couple was in love. They were so excited to celebrate their love with one another with their closest friends and family members. Lana and Jean Luc wanted a clean design, a minimalist approach to their overall décor, and with the help of Kathleen Deery and Cole Drake Events, it was a complete success.
For the ceremony, the couple exchanged their vows under a newly designed arbor just after a fresh “good luck” afternoon sprinkle subsided. After the ceremony, their guests were greeted with tray passed beverages while they noshed on delicious canapes from the Carneros Inn. Organic linens and white florals embellished their table top while Amber Moon Designs popped hints of blue with their place cards (which also were their menus).
As a nod to Jean Luc’s heritage, guests dined on Coq au Vin, as one of their entrée choices, in a warmly lit room. Once dancing commenced, our room transformed with a color change to a dance club and guests danced well into the late evening. Jean Luc and Lana had a very specific idea of what they wanted for their wedding day and Lana’s reaction was absolutely perfect when she saw her vision finally come to fruition.
