Brett is married!! Last weekend we went to the wedding of our good friend, Brett, in Napa, CA at the beautiful Meritage Resort & Spa. Before the wedding, we met with Julia, our blogging friend from Sprinkled with Jules who also happened to be in the Napa area that day for wedding! Jules posts the most amazing desserts, seriously go check out her blog now! We met up at the Oxbow Public Market for lunch…a must do if you’re in Napa! There were so many cute vendors and such delicious food! We already want to go back.
Brett, the groom, is a friend of Kelly’s and Stephanie’s boyfriend from high school and is the nicest and most hilarious person you will ever meet! Plus both him AND the bride are aerospace engineers…so yeah. They win.
Before the ceremony we did a wine tasting in the resort;s wine cellar which was so fun! Kelly prefers whites and sweeter wines while Stephanie likes reds, so it was fun to see what they could come up with that we would both like. We ended up buying a bottle of the Mysterium, a blend of four different red grapes. It’s kind of neat because each year they use the winemaker’s favorite grapes from that year, hence the name Mysterium! It’s a mystery every year what it will taste like!
The wedding ceremony itself was held on the vineyard balcony and it was so simple and peaceful and gorgeous. The perfect location! That was followed by a cocktail hour on the lawn then the dinner and reception. They had an amazing red velvet cake that Kelly is hoping to recreate…and she’s not even a red velvet fan! We could not have asked for better weather this weekend. There was actually rain in the area the few days before (much needed!) but it was sunny and a perfect fall day for Brett and Madeline.
We ate and drank and danced the night away with old friends and were already reminiscing about it the next morning. Unfortunately it was an early one, seeing as Stephanie and BF Matt had an 11 hour drive ahead of them back to Boise, but it was beyond worth it.
Congratulations Brett and Madeline! Thanks for letting us be a part of your celebration!
