Joseph Phelps Vineyards Marriage Proposal in the rain – Rose and Michael

The surprise marriage proposal of Rose and Michael on a misty day in St. Helena, California at Joseph Phelps Vineyards. They flew in from the east coast for a getaway which turned out to be more than Rose expected! After their planned wine tasting, Michael took Rose outside and proposed in the rain. Congratulations, Rose & Michael!

Napa Wedding Photography at Brix Restaurant with Desiree and Nikos

Jim Vetter Photography had the honor of spending a hot summer wedding day with Desiree and Nikos in Napa Valley’s Brix Restaurant.  Brix in Napa is beautifully warm and welcoming with awesome food and fantastic staff that really takes care their guests.  Its such a great spot for Napa wedding photography. If you’re planning a Napa wedding, you should give Matt a call at Brix.  He is wonderful to work with!

Desiree was gorgeous on her wedding day and Betten did a beautiful job with her hair and makeup.  We’d also like to credit Rainbow Balloons and Flowers for the floral arrangements and bouquets.  And of course the yummy cake from Patisserie Angelica!

Bride at Brix

Napa Valley offers such picturesque backdrops for outdoor events!  The decor at this wedding was true to Napa stylings with wine barrels, vegetable gardens and vineyards surrounding the ceremony.  You’ll love the beautiful detail in her gown from Allure Bridal.

Desiree and Nikos chose to have their first look at each other before the ceremony began.  This is a great way to capture genuine expressions on the bride and groom and to do it in good light!  I LOVE the look on their faces below when they see each other for the first time on their wedding day.

The flower girl was too cute for words…

Desiree and Nikos were so fun to work with – they were up for any idea I threw at them.  From the frigid wine cellar to the old barn out back and more, we had a great time photographing them.

Congratulations, Desiree and Nikos!  Thank you for making Jim Vetter Photography your choice for capturing the most important day of your lives!
