Sit back and drink in this Napa Valley elopement

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 PhotographyThey ♥ OBB; we ♥ them 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 KristinThey ♥ OBB; we ♥ them). 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.

  4. 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. 😉

  6. 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.
