Lyndsay & Mike’s Intimate Napa Elopement

Lyndsay & Mike01
Couples frequently get engaged in exotic locales, but Mike took it to the next level when he and Lyndsay were on vacation in London: In preparation for his proposal, he secretly had a graffiti artist paint “Blondie <heart> Steele” on a wall right on Kingsland Road in Hoxton (Steele’s his last name and Lyndsay is, well, blonde). We can’t even begin to imagine Lyndsay’s face when he unveiled the surprise and popped the question!

We had the privilege of capturing their joy in July, however, when they journeyed from Texas to tie the knot at Napa’s Meritage Resort & Spa. We also had the pleasure of seeing (and photographing!) Mike’s expression when Lyndsay revealed a surprise of her own after their touching ceremony: “Blondie <heart> Steele” painted on canvas and unrolled against a backdrop of leafy grapevines. So sweet!

Afterwards, they enjoyed their first dance in the summer sunshine with a violin-rendition of the Verve’s “Bittersweet Symphony.” Lyndsay was a knockout in a lacy, strapless, high-low dress, while Mike rocked a slim black suit with purple tiewe never would’ve guessed that they’ve both tackled the brutal obstacle course on American Ninja Warrior! Ironically, they struggled hilariously to cut their gluten-free cake, but redeemed themselves with pull-ups and intense glances as we explored the Meritage’s rolling vineyard together. Before we knew it, it was time to bid the newlyweds goodbye. Here are some of our favorite moments from their memorable day.
