Meadowood St. Helena Elopement Wedding - Napa Wedding Photographer - Chris&Lindey

Chris&Lindey are from Tampa Florida and decided to plan a destination elopement in the Napa Valley. It was just the two of them, a hair and makeup artist, the wedding coordinator, the wedding officiant and us! They got ready on the breathtakingly gorgeous grounds of Meadowood Resort in one of the quaint cottages with a high balcony overlooking the golf course. The previous day they had spent wine tasting, playing croquet and enjoying the scenery of St. Helena, the town where these two planned their elopement. 

We had a very relaxed afternoon with these two. Lindey had her hair and makeup done in the cottage while Chris sat next to her and poured wine for the two of them. Meadowood is a wonderful host and continued to spoil these two throughout the day by bringing up bouquets of flowers, wine and lots of yummy sweet treats to their room.

Once Lindey was ready to slip into her dress, Chris stepped outside to still have a little "surprise" when he finally got to see her in it! Chris&Lindey both have excellent taste. Lindey looked stunning in her gown and Chris looked extra dapper in his navy blue suit. Right before heading to their intimate ceremony under the tall surrounding redwood trees, these two shared a quick "first look" so they could walk hand in hand down the aisle together. After the sweet and heartfelt ceremony, these two popped champagne and we took some portraits around the grounds until sunset. After our evening with these two ended, they headed to the delicious five star restaurant that was on site for a celebratory dinner! What a lovely day and a even more amazing couple we had the privilege of photographing!

Cheers to these two!
