Way back I photographed Tristan & Matt’s destination wedding at the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone in St. Helena, Napa Valley. The couple were from the east coast, huge foodie fans and loved great wine parings so the Napa-Sonoma area was their first choice. The C.I.A. St. Helena California campus was the perfect venue to experience where great chefs are born. The best wedding vendor meal I’ve ever ate including the cake! Thank you to I Do Venues for publishing my wedding this week. Thank you also to the wedding vendors that made my event photography spectacular, Kate Stanley for lighting and hydrangea wedding flowers and La Tavola linen rentals of Napa-San Francisco.
