Natalie & Ariel's Wedding | Napa Wedding Photography | Napa Wedding Photographer

Natalie & Ariel's wedding was one I couldn't wait to happen, and then didn't want to be over. From start to end, it felt like a fairytale, and Calistoga Ranch is always a magical backdrop. This couple has the sweetest story too, of first 'meeting' each other by phone while working for the same company, but in different countries. Ariel, in New York, fell in love with Natalie's British accent, and was thrilled to later discover (via Facebook) that she was also Jewish, and gorgeous :) Long story short, they courted from opposite sides of the globe, until eventually, Natalie moved to America and, last week, the two officially committed to a lifetime together. Without further ado, here are some photos of their amazing day: Calistoga Ranch Wedding Bride Head Piece
