Fall Rustic Luxe Vineyard Wedding in Napa, California

Rachel and Chris’ fall rustic luxe vineyard wedding at Brix Napa has all the beautiful neutral tones and elements that you are looking for if you are planning an outdoor wedding.  The San Diego couple chose to have a wedding in early October when the vineyard is in full bloom and the grapes are ripe on the vines just before harvest.

Monique Lhuillier for Rachel

One of my all-time favorite wedding dress designers is Monique Lhuillier, so you can imagine how excited I was when I saw Rachel’s silk white sorbet colored wedding dress: the Dulce.  It is a sheath gown topped with a plunging V-neckline over a corset-style bodice.  The curve-skimming style of Italian lace tulle sweeps the floor with a godet-flared skirt.  It’s absolutely gorgeous!

Rachel’s Shoes

As for the wedding shoes, Rachel selected the powder pink Valentino rockstud block heel sandals.

Their ceremony decor has a lot of greeneries that complement the vineyards in the background.  Absolutely love the rustic distressed white ceremony A-frame white wood arbor with florals by Mae Flowers Sonoma.

Squeezing in the last drop of sunset light across the vineyard.  If the dinner reception has started already (especially during the Summer or early Fall when the days are longer), we usually “steal” the bride and groom for 15 to 20 minutes during that time to take a few more sunset portraits before night falls.
