Ashley and Chris were married at Calistoga Ranch in Calistoga, Calif. on September 22. “We met five years ago at work, we instantly were drawn to each other’s dry sense of humor,” Ashley said. “There has not been a day that has gone by since the day we met that we don’t make each other laugh!” The bride wore a backless lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown with a ruffled skirt, accessorized with a chapel-length veil, while the groom wore black suit, accessorized with a white tie. “My husband didn’t want groomsmen, but I wasn’t getting married without my bests by my side!” she said. “Sure, it’s not traditional, but who cares?” Bridesmaids wore long pink chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of roses and hydrangeas. “Guests arrived by party bus and were immediately greeted with custom pre-ceremony cocktails and parasols to beat the 80-degree heat,” Ashley said. The outdoor nuptials took place underneath a rustic branch arch hung with a crystal chandelier. “Napa is such a gorgeous place to get married, and I really wanted to enhance the natural beauty with a ton of flowers,” she said. The newlyweds best advice? “Keep the wedding about you and your future husband because at the end of the day thats all that matters,” Ashley said. She was intent on having a sheer tent for the reception. But because of the shape of the lawn, it had to be custom-made. “I really wanted a rustic romantic wedding with classic touches that would never go out of style,” she said. “I didn’t want to look back at pictures and think ‘oh that was a trend.'” Tables were decorated with mercury glass centerpieces, lace runners, and family-style meals. “Post-dinner, we went into the Wine Cave, which was set up with lounge furniture, lighting, an open bar, and a DJ!” Ashley said.
