Napa was a vacation destination for Pamela and Daniel, who both live in Chicago, and they always admired its beauty and wonder, not to mention amazing wine and food! When selecting a venue for the wedding, they wanted to show their guests the beautiful Napa Valley and Brix, being submersed in the vineyards, with the beautiful mountain backdrop, couldn’t have been a more perfect place. Brix not only has the stunning backdrop but amazing food and stellar service.
The wedding rings were all rose gold, and the wedding invitations were based off of them. Having hints of blush and golds throughout the wedding, the invitations were the perfect tie-in and they unknowingly gave their guests a sneak peak into their wedding.
Pamela selected Alvina Valenta for her wedding dress. This ivory strapless Alencon Lace trumpet bridal gown has a beautiful sweetheart neckline and sparkles throughout. It evokes ethereal romance, iconic elegance, and luxe glamour effortlessly.
Pamela’s wedding shoes were Caitlyn by Badgley Mischka. Caitlyn is a glamorous satin d’orsay heel which features a stunning embellishment at the peep toe.
The handsome groom chose a blue custom-tailored Dormeuil suit for the special day!
Colors of the entire wedding were soft and romantic with hints of blush, creams, greens and whites. The wedding style was very romantic and warm with bits of rustic elegance.
Mae Flowers did a lovely job with the florals. Colors were golds, blushes, creams, whites and greens. There were tons of peonies, roses, garden roses, lush greenery.
For wedding favors, Pamela gave all the lady guests a belly dancing scarf…
Sweetie Pies Bakery created an amazing dessert display and wedding cake! Frati Gelato provided the cute cart with four different flavors – Cookies & Cream, Mint Chip, Rasberry Sorbet and chocolate! The bride’s family also provided Middle Eastern desserts.
As Pamela and Daniel were introduced, all of the wedding guests surrounded the couple on the dance floor as they all celebrated with a traditional Iraqi dance. Everyone waved their belly skirts in the air and some of the guests carried the couple on their shoulders. Once the dance was over, the groom sabered a bottle of sparkling wine to begin the dinner service. A welcome toast was given by the bride’s father.
