Sit back and drink in this Napa Valley elopement #Wedding Porn#california#eloping#small wedding#vineyard#wine ceremony May 19 | Chris Wolfgang mswolfgang Photos by: Wild About You Photography Photos by Wild About You Photography Bethany and Brandon got married last September at a private vineyard in Napa Valley, with no more than Wild About You Photography and an officiant to witness the ceremony. The couple sneaked away to California for a "vacation" that they only told one person about. You might feel lulled into relaxation by the casual elegance of Brandon and Bethany's elopement, but try to stay alert for a few cool details. For example, Brandon made their burlap wedding banner as a surprise for Bethany. Also, there are definitely photos of bridal grape-stomping waiting for you after the jump (serious props to Bethany for doing that in such a gorgeous dress from Mermaid Miss Kristin). But my favorite detail? Check out their officiant's vestment stole. I'm not even going to tell you what it looks like… but it's perfect.

I feel flushed. 😉 3 agree Reply I just need to say that I'm in LOOOOOVE with that amazing dress, and not just because it was made by a friend of mine… although that's an awesome added bonus. 😉 7 agree Reply What a wonderful elopement. It looks like you guys had a magical day. Congratulations 2 agree Reply Beautiful! I love her headband–any ideas of where to find one like that? 1 agrees Reply Hi Julia! Bethany got her headband at http://www.charmingcharlie.com. 1 agrees Reply Did they do this in very DIY fashion? I'm looking for a "venue" for my elopement. We'll each have one friend with us. But I have no desire to pay thousands to rent out space for a few people, and one of my friends is ordained. Reply Yes, they did! Their "venue" was a private vineyard that included an officiant, wine, and cake. Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
