ADRIAN AND DONNIE'S WEDDING

October, 2008 in Calistoga

"Our wedding weekend was amazing! All of the time, effort and planning was worth it. Napa Valley is stunning in mid-October and has something for every guest to do! We were so fortunate to have only great things to say about all of the vendors we used. My advice is to do your research - it might seem exhausting, but it is worth it - especially if you are planning a destination wedding! All of the countless hours I spent reading tons of reviews and making sure I had looked at every option is why we were so pleased with the end result.

Our guests loved wedding mapper - a lot of them referred to our page since they were all planning a trip for the wedding! Taylor's Refresher is a must-include for any Napa Valley wedding weekend. Go Fish is an excellent restaurant that I would definitely add to the map as well. Our guests appreciated the mix of Bed & Breakfasts and Hotels/Resorts we placed on the map, as well as the non-wine tasting activities we listed.

For Calistoga-area brides, the Visitor's Bureau there is great! We went in and they gave us so many great maps to include in our welcome bags for our guests!

You can't go wrong with a Napa Valley wedding - every single one of our guests gushed about what a great weekend it was! I would be happy to help any Napa brides in any way I can - feel free to email me at ajholman at yahoo dot com."

With my high expectations, to have the sample invite they sent me take my breath away is definitely saying something. Customer service was phenomenal - helpful and quick to reply. I HIGHLY recommend them - don't be afraid about them being an Internet company. They were better than any storefront I visited, by far!"

Rentals Vendor:

Red Cheese

Calistoga, CA, USA

"At first I was worried that the old-school, bright red looking photo booth was going to clash with my wedding and look cheap...I am so glad I got over that! It was perfect the way it was and the fact that it stood out a bit ended up being a good thing! It was a total hit with the guests and there were no problems with the machine itself - and the guy that was there the whole time with the booth was great! We brought a bunch of fun props for our guests to use and they LOVED it! The only bad thing was I sent them artwork to include on the photo label but it didn't make it onto the photos..."
