This elegant al fresco wedding inspiration shoot comes to us from Marilyn Ambra Party Consultants, based in Sonoma, CA! Here’s Marilyn to tell us more:

When closing one’s eyes and picturing the perfect Wine Country affair, idyllic imagery floats in one’s imagination. Cascading vineyards, graceful cypress, lush greenery, and of course, loved ones. On the Northernmost part of Napa Valley, tucked away on the edge of a mountain, sits The Vineyard Estate.

See more after the cut!


With sweeping views of vineyards near and far, private yet breathtakingly picturesque, the Estate is the perfect setting for romantic weddings, honeymoons, and special events.

Recently, in collaboration with an incredible group of vendors and creatives, we staged some of the idyllic possibilities at The Vineyard Estate. Photographed by Ingrid Nelson of Myrtle & Marjoram, dramatic and romantic tables were balanced with modern bites and cocktails by Estate Events by Meadowood.

Our goal for this shoot was to showcase the immense surrounding beauty while allowing viewers to picture themselves comfortably at their dream event. Metallic trays and artisanal cocktails gave way to modern, minimalist influences, while wooden vessels and herbal garlands rooted the space.

Even while foils of gold were delicately placed on hors-d’oeuvres, one still felt serene when encompassed by wise redwoods, ferns, and Napa Valley’s iconic breeze. A special thank you to all the wonderful participants that allowed this shoot to happen!

Lovely, thank you for sharing! For more information about Marilyn Ambra Party Consultants, please visit their WeddingLovely Vendor Guide profile or head straight to their website.
