Alex and Brian’s Tre Posti wedding in the heart of Napa Valley was a picture postcard wine country wedding.
The couple got ready separately on the property, surrounded by their supportive wedding party and family, ready to help with any task. They opted for a first look, in Tre Posti’s lush garden area and as Alex emerged from the Villa, neither could hold back the tears as they held on to each other and let the enormity of the day sink in.
Their ceremony was framed in the shadow of the majestic Mayacamas mountains and surrounded by lush green vineyards. And though the couple had already seen each other, Brian could not hold back his tears as he saw his bride come down the aisle with her father by her side. The couple chose to keep the ceremony brief and after they emerged as husband and wife, they took a moment by themselves to read their private vows to each other. And if the official ceremony wasn’t emotional enough, seeing these two share such an intimate moment together was truly touching.
Now husband and wife, the couple, hand in hand, with smiles on their faces, strolled into Tre Posti’s garden area to share and celebrate with their friends and family for cocktail hour. A fitting compliment to their black tie theme, surrounded by guests, the couple led a toast by joining hands and pouring champagne into a cascading tower of flutes.
The reception took place in the Italian-inspired terrazza while the guests enjoyed The Girl and the Figs delicious Napa cuisine. The speeches ran the full spectrum from tear jerking to hilarious and the feeling of love in the room was palatable. The party moved to Tre Posti’s harvest room for late evening dancing and festivities while the live band keep the feeling alive.
Having a destination wedding was the perfect getaway for their midwest friends and family to gather and celebrate some of what the couple enjoys most; amazing food and wine with a touch of the Mediterranean in one of California’s most iconic valleys.
About the couple
How we met
We have a millennial love story, we met on the dating app hinge.
Brian pulled a quick one on me and had one of my best friends and me to go out to lunch to get me out of the house. While I was at lunch, Brian put a dress, heels, and a note that said to be ready by five. At 5, a driver picked me up and took me to North Pond in Lincoln Park, where Brian was waiting for me. He got down on one knee and then we met up with both sets of our parents at one of our favorite steakhouse in Chicago, Swift and Sons.
Describe the day and any important details
We wanted to a destination wedding and Brian and I both really love wine. So Tre Posit's wine country venue seemed like the perfect destination wedding for our midwestern roots. We love that Tre Posti has the vineyard meets garden feel (and you can have alcohol and party past 10 PM). And the food at Tre Posti is phenomenal! I love flowers, so florals play an important part of creating the garden vibe meets wine country. I made the donut holders and the escort cards, dinner menus, and wedding programs. They had blush ribbons and a gold seal on them. We wanted our wedding to feel like a fun black tie dinner party and to enjoy our guests and eat the food (because it is delicious)!
