Remember Anna and Steven and their glamtastic hotel engagement session earlier this year? Well, one gorgeous Saturday in May, they tied the knot in Napa.
In a cave.
But not just any old cave! The Meritage Resort & Spa’s Estate Cave is a cool, dark chamber tucked beneath the resort’s private vineyards. Lit with warm candles and chandeliers during the touching ceremony, it had a hallowed, spiritual vibe. We had no idea it’d be transformed into the sparkliest, most glamorous space ever—cave or otherwise—for the reception!
Masterful uplighting illuminated the head table adorned with sequined chevron cloth and glittery candles galore, as well as guest tables showcasing stunning floral centerpieces. We loved the thoughtful touches like the whimsical four-tiered cake (gluten-free!), feathered escort cards, gallery wraps, marquee LOVE sign, and french fry bar.
Anna herself dazzled in not one but two spectacular gowns (check out the custom hangers bridesmaid Krystle made!), while Steven looked debonair in a black suit with bow tie for the ceremony and a white jacket for the reception. The bridesmaids rocked flirty black cocktail dresses.
And so it was in an amazing cave that Anna, Steven, and their family and friends danced, drank, and made merry until midnight. Here are some of our favorite still and animated moments from the day, including Anna performing the Cupid Shuffle with some twinkle-toed guests.
