Alex & Roger: Destination Napa Valley CA


When you are wild about wine, there is no more perfect place to have a party with all your favorite people than Napa Valley, California. Janelle got to come along on this adventure and officiate this epic event for two sweethearts that are meant to pair together like fine wine. Alex’s heart for others is what catches your attention and each element of this day was so well planned out with thoughtful touches for each guest’s experience. Roger is an all-American guy with a sweet soul.

When the two invited me to join them in California, I counted down the days until we got to explore the vineyards! The Carneros Resort & Spa impressed everyone from the blends to the views; guests were floored all weekend long. The resort found a unique way to pair farmhouse and modern together to create quite the retreat from the bustle of the city life in San Francisco. To add to the fun, I got to hang with the talents of John Hoel from our Living Room Studios family, and a dear college friend, Jeffrey Purganan, whom had photographed Janelle and I in San Diego during our engagement season. What a dream team of creative friends! We laughed hard and explored the valley to catch the last rays of light. As the sun set, the party was just getting going and people danced so hard that a late night dip in the pool was inevitable.
