While common marriage advice holds that a person should place his or her marriage above all else, military spouses like them who are both Captains in the Air Force, often don’t. Living with this reality often requires a lot of patience where “duty is first, everything else is second”. So with their busy schedules and them being deployed separately at two different locations, planning their Wedding was meticulously done ahead of time with the Bride’s parents at hand in their absence.
Nonetheless, their beautiful Wedding was a very intimate group of less than 40 guests of their closest friends and families who reveled over a long and memorable weekend in Wine Country. Their ceremony was held in Our Lady of the Grapes Chapel, followed by their Reception in the Vineyard Terrace and a romantic Dinner at the Estate Wine Cave at The Meritage Resort and Spa in Napa.
Once again, CONGRATULATIONS, and a heartfelt thanks for your duty, honor and commitment to serve our nation and defend our country.
My special thanks to my amazing team of Wedding Vendors who helped me create their Special Weekend.
