Fall Solage Auberge Calistoga Wedding in Napa Valley | April + AJ

by Abby Jiu

April and AJ wanted a fall wedding where their friends and family could come together in one of their favorite places, Napa Valley. And since the couple resides in San Francisco, Napa Valley was a short trip to the resort. April and AJ wanted to keep it their wedding modern and warm, so with their planner + designer, Kate Siegel Fine Events, they created a monochromatic color palette and added an abundance of light and greenery.

Typically for a destination wedding, we will scout picture locations the day before the event. Upon our trips, we found the photo opportunities at the Solage Auberge were endless. We really could have photographed there all day long. Immediately following the ceremony, we went to the vineyards where the falls leaves had turned a rich red hue and the moment was topped off with a golden Napa sunset.

Underwood Press designed a monochromatic paper suite with gold embellishments that lent itself to the fresh and modern take at Solage Auberge. Mother of Pearl was used to add texture and depth while still keeping the color palette clean and simple. The alliteration of the couple’s first initial was cleverly used to create their wedding monogram.

This locale for pictures was somewhat of a wildcard. At the resort, it is used as a wild flower and herb garden. Lisa and I saw it as the perfect spot for dreamy pictures.

Kate Siegel wanted an eye catcher when the guests walked in. So with Go Lights SF they created a custom 12x14 chandelier with boasted 48 acrylic globes that hung over the dance floor.
