St Helena, California
Photography Sylvie Gil

Officially married in a very intimate ceremony in California’s Gold Country, three weeks later Chris and Andrew celebrated again in this gorgeous newlywed photoshoot. The couple regularly visit Chris’s family home in St. Helena, so they knew there was no better time to enjoy the spectacular Napa scenery than in the fall. The white and gray tones of the home and the vibrancy of its fantastic persimmon tree gave us all the inspiration we needed.

Our overall vision for the day was a study in contrasts – a rich fall color palette balanced by masculine, industrial accents. Shades of crisp white and slate gray seen in the modern stationery suite were also used in the ceremony, which featured stainless steel chairs and cement urns filled with greenery. Burnt orange pashminas draped over the chairs provided a pop of color, as well as extra warmth needed for the November day.
