A far-away land can hold so much romance and story, even when you just think about them. Europe is one of these inspiring places. Even if you’ve never been, thoughts of European history and architecture feels inherently romantic, and like one of the best places to begin your story as husband and wife. However, if you’re hoping to share your wedding day with many friends and family and you live state-side, then Europe may not be an option. But, that doesn’t mean that you can’t take the idea of somewhere rich in history, with lush beautiful surroundings and oozes romance and find it closer to home. This beautiful photo shoot encourages you to find inspiration in your dream wedding locale, and bring it into your own wedding.
From Rebekah of A & B Creative:
“Napa is one of the most beautiful areas for weddings. It has so much of the charm one might imagine Europe to have, and so many locations have buildings actually made from stones brought from the cities it so closely resembles. One of the things I love most about Napa, in addition to its accessibility, is how many little-known locations there are where you can create the story with your husband you dreamed of and it can be a unique one.”

This simple bridal portrait session in the mountains is made beautiful and amazing by many different factors, but our very favorite is the breathtaking location. Swap a city skyline for a mountain ridge, lake view, orchard, or garden and we'll take that any day!
