A Romantic Destination Wedding at a Private Estate in Napa, California
Tracey Wheeler (27 and a customer service manager) and Adam Hellmers (27 and an electrical engineer) met at a trivia night through mutual friends in New Orleans. Six months later, they were positive this was the big one and Adam proposed. The couple had a destination wedding at a private estate in Napa, California under a pergola overlooking a vineyard. "I had been to Napa before and loved the experience," says Tracey. "The weather and landscape of Napa are so beautiful, and the environment seemed like the perfect place to have our wedding." Following the ceremony, the couple enjoyed wine and cheese with their guests and prepared an intimate dinner, the highlight being a salted caramel, peanut butter and bacon doberge cake from New Orleans. After dinner, guests sat around a fireplace drinking wine, listen to music, talking and laughing late into the night.
