A Pre-Napa Proposal

I am The Wedding Salon’s newly engaged bride-to-be!  Since I’m lucky enough to have an incredible support team as I plan my wedding, I’ll be sharing some tips that I learn along the way and documenting the big steps and key moments! I’ve already received some great advice, but before I share, let’s start with the proposal!

Justin & I were engaged over the holidays! He had the big proposal planned to take place on New Year’s Eve during a vacation we had planned to Napa, but luckily for me, he couldn’t wait. On a rainy December evening, after a long and tiresome day, I returned home to discover that I had lost my favorite pearl earring that he had bought me.  Of course that drove me to tears, so his response was pulling out something bigger and better – a diamond ring.

We did end up in Napa, two weeks later and enjoyed a wonderful vacation.  It was much more relaxing for him,  as he didn’t have to worry about a big proposal as the grand finale.  I’ve included a snapshot from our “Engagement Trip” to Napa where we celebrated at some of our favorite restaurants and vineyards including Bottega Napa Valley, The V Sattui Winery, Meadowood Napa Valley and of course, Domaine Chandon.
