Joanne and Daniel wanted their wedding to reflect their sophisticated, yet fun style and to share their passion for great food and wine with friends and family across the globe. The couple, two Brits who met and fell in love in Houston, chose the Napa Valley for their destination wedding.
Joanne and Daniel exchanged "I-dos" amongst enormous Weeping Willow trees on the grounds of a gorgeous private estate in Calistoga. After cocktails on the lake, guests were led up to dinner and dancing by a bagpiper. Joanne's family kicked off the evening with two hilarious toasts, including one from Joanne's sister that was an all-out Fresh Prince of Bel Air style rap about the couple. (A first!) Guests spent the evening laughing, dancing, and indulging in special treats like a cigar bar and bananas foster station from Paula LeDuc Fine Catering.
