As a potential venue inspiration for the same sex couples looking to wed, A Monique Affair assembled a team of fabulous creative partners and headed for Napa Valley. With the mission of highlighting the beauty and elegance of the Northern Bay area, A Monique Affair chose to the showcase the majestic grounds of the Solage Resort and Spa located at Silverado Trail deep in the heart of Calistoga.
Featuring the gorgeous couple, native to the Bay Area, A Monique Affair made this photo shoot a personal experience for both the models and the creative team who came together to create an amazing experience and some beautiful images.
The creative mind of Chanda Eddens-Daniels helped direct the team and it was her creative eye that brought it all together in the end. Using subtle bases and stylish textures combined with bold colors and the bright California sunshine, A Monique Affair brought this pretty photo shoot to life. Continuous encouragement to each partner to pull out all of the stops when creating their look for this event allowed the photographers, Rachel and Chloe to capture the whole experience of the day. Sheela, of Sarah’s Garden, introduced a beautiful selection of arrangements in both bold colors and traditional touches to make the tablescapes and vignettes stand out and inspire. The floral arrangements combined with vintage and contemporary props rented from both Pleasanton Rentals and Bright Event Rentals, provided the perfect polish to tie the entire look together.
Once the wedding stationery, created by Carrie and Nikki at Creative DNA, was incorporated into the tables, we were ready to shoot. The models were styled in a combination of looks provided by Cirkl, with Santa Rosa’s Wine Country Bride. The models were topped off with creative hair and make-up styling by Oakland’s own Angela Womack for a classic look. And of course we can’t forget the decadent wedding cake, created by Oakland’s own Marla Erojo, owner of Cakes Made by ME, it brought the entire photo shoot together!
