How blessed am I to be able to share such a gorgeous wedding with you today? Rachel and Mike had such a beautiful wedding last September in the Napa Valley. All captured by Mulberry Photography.

To celebrate Rachel and Mike’s love of travel, their seating cards and were named after places they had traveled together. Beautiful linens were provided by La Tavola Fine Linens.

In keeping with the travel theme, the wedding cake (made by Inticing Creations) was a set of luggage.  Mike’s cake was a Mr Met head cake- a nod to Mike’s love of The NY Mets!

Rachel and Mike danced their first dance to “To Make You Feel My Love” by Bob Dylan.

As Rachel and Mike are both musicians, they surprised their parents with the first dance they never had. They performed the Joan Baez version of “Forever Young”. Their favourite song.

The couple finished the night with plenty of dancing and moonlit photos amongst the vineyards.

Thank you to Rachel and Mike for allowing us to share your wedding day! Thank you also to Emarie of A Savvy Event for sending such a beautiful wedding and Mulberry Photography for allowing us to share their work!

    Toooooo good. One of the best I’ve seen so far! It’s amazing how you study through millions of wedding mags and read blogs and then you see a wedding like this that totally leaves you speechless. :)
