When you’re one of the lucky ones, you have a family home nestled in vineyards in the heart of the Napa Valley, down a quiet country lane, with sweeping views of the Mayacamas, and lawns and gardens to enjoy. That’s exactly the kind of lucky that Maddie & Jamis are. They’re also humble and grateful to have been blessed with this gorgeous location for their wedding, and want everyone to know that pulling off a backyard wedding, while they’re certainly not complaining, is no easy task. It was a family affair, and everyone worked sun-up to sun-down for months to ensure this idilic wine country setting was ready for a full-on wedding. Their smartest decision was hiring local wedding planner Jennifer Stone of La Grande Fete – she was able to walk the property and envision the available spaces for the ceremony, dinner, and dancing. A ceremony nestled in this dirt spot between the lawn and the vineyard? The dinner in this strip of land between these other vineyards? Only a wedding planner can pull off that kind of vision. And in the end, this lucky couple had their perfect wedding day in their own family backyard, transformed into the pure Napa Valley luxury. Lucky couple, indeed!
