Gay Elopements
Rose Petals Wedding Photography

Beyond expectation. We looked at several possible places around the country to hold our ceremony. Napa Valley won out because Gay Elopements provided a one stop shop that took care of ALL the details - from the amazing VENUES (along a creek between to vineyards) all the way to the photography, cake and champagne toast - they even gave great suggestions for our post wedding dinner. They were very helpful, open to all our questions and suggestions, nimble with last minute changes, and truly made our wedding a once in a lifetime experience. Highest recommendation! Again, thanks for everything. It was wonderful. Smiles, Barry

Wedding Boquet Amazing! Dona and John were so friendly and accommodating. As soon as we met them, we knew we were going to get married there. The "package" (for lack of a better word) is completely reasonable and affordable; the garden setting is so gorgeous, and I cannot tell you how many little (and big) requests we had...and they accommodated all of them! All of our friends are in awe of our wedding pictures- the garden, the settings, the quality. BUT what really made our wedding was the ceremony. John wrote the most beautiful service and he was so generous to include some verses that we requested. It was very hard to not cry through it! If you are looking for something smaller, practical, peaceful, serene, beautiful, and with a little bit of something special. This place is just the right amount of perfect! Feel free to contact me if you want more info!
Vineyard Wedding Photograph This was exactly what we were looking for, and Dona & John couldn't have done a better job! Brian and I wanted something simple, beautiful, and really focused on just the two of us. We contacted Dona two weeks prior to the wedding and she was very friendly and easy to work with. It felt like all we had to do was to show up and they did the rest. With only a little input about ourselves to John, he put together the perfect ceremony, which was personal and meaningful without being too traditional. Dona worked with a local florist and they put together a gorgeous bouquet that went with our color scheme. The champagne and the cake after our ceremony were delicious and made us feel like we were at a bigger wedding, despite the fact that there were only four of us. What we loved the most was the VENUES. Each little garden had its own personality and we didn't have any problem finding a beautiful backdrop for our photos. On top of all that, Dona took us out to some local vineyards and wineries for more photo ops, which turned out great!! We stayed the night in the studio (it was very spacious and gorgeous!) since the cottage was booked, and even with another couple nearby, it felt very private and cozy (and dog friendly). Before we even got to Napa, they provided us with a comprehensive list of restaurants to try while we were there and that really helped us when picking out our wedding dinner VENUES. Looking back on our wedding we can remember every moment in detail, and we are so grateful to Dona and John for helping us create this beautiful experience!!!
Elope in Wine Country Wedding Cake My wife & I had our wedding here 3 weeks ago. What a perfect location! I was a DJ for 3 years, so I'm very familiar with wedding locations. Prior to the wedding, I was scouting locations in the Napa area, and based on my schedule, I could only look at locations at night. John & Dona's place was difficult to find at night, but Dona was SO polite when I pulled up to her house at 10:30pm! She showed me around the grounds, including the wedding garden. Even at night, I knew that this was the place. It has a great, intimate, wooden wedding feel. Having lots of trees and greenery also works well for the background of your wedding photos, which turned out great! Dona was the photographer, and John was the officiant. Prior to the wedding, they were professional & upbeat, dealing with typical bride & groom stress and changes with ease & flexibility. During the wedding, we had a total of 10 people - for us, the perfect size wedding. All of the details of the wedding - flowers, additional roses we requested, cake, champagne & toast, and candid photos were on time, and of highest quality. John's pace & tone were perfect as the officiant, including all of our special requests. After the wedding, Dona was kind enough to provide a few photos on an ASAP basis for our needs. Highly recommended!
