My experience at Haute Bride was absolutely fabulous! Meghan is the best person I have ever dealt with. My mom and friends absolutely loved her as well. I almost bought my dress from here, but bought it somewhere else. I'm not sure if my mom and one of my best friends have forgiven me, as the dress from Haute Bride was their favorite. I did however buy earrings, a bracelet, my shoes and my veil from Haute Bride. They all turned out perfect, and looked absolutely beautiful! They matched and complimented my dress perfectly!!! I would definitely recommend Haute Bride for all your bridal needs. You have to check them out!!!

We are planning a quick wedding, less than 5 months. After a few weeks searching for a location, I happened upon the Solage. It looked contemporary and beautiful, but what sold me on checking them out was the fact that they are pet friendly. We were trying to find a way to have our dog with us, and the Solage met that desire plus will provide us w/ a beautiful outdoor setting for our wedding in one of our favorite places, the Napa Valley. Katie, their event coordinator has been fabulous. Our wedding is October 11, and I can't wait! UPDATE: Our wedding day was fantastic! The day, the scenery, friends, family, food, decor, flowers, photographer, all incredible. Katie left before our wedding, but Colleen & Nathan whom took over were great! Nathan and Francisco were in charge the day of, and everything was fabulous! Nathan even stood in for our officiant for the rehearsal, and made me feel at ease that everything would be perfect. We got so many compliments about the food, especially the halibut. My husband and I had a room joining my mom's by a private hallway. It was perfect for getting ready the day of. Shawn and I enjoyed our stay so much, we stayed an extra night and day, so we were also able to enjoy the fabulous spa. We will definitely be back for our anniversary if not sooner. Solage Calistoga was the perfect venue for our ceremony, reception and stay.

Briana Marie Photography
My husband and I are so thrilled we found Brian to capture the moments of our special day! They say the day goes so fast and you miss so much. Thanks to Briana and her assistant, Jennifers wonderful talents, our day will live on forever. We can see many of the things we missed, and our friends and family that couldn't attend can feel like they were there with us. I already have way too many favorites picked out. I am still beaming, and her pictures keep making smile and cry all over again. My husband usually doesn't smile in pictures, but Briana made him feel so comfortable in our engagement photo session, that he smiled away. By the time our wedding day came, I think he smiled almost as much as I did. Our friends and family cannot stop raving about our engagement and wedding pictures either! You truly will love Briana!

Amy Kuschel Bride
I absolutely love my Amy Kuschel gown and the entire experience of having the dress custom made. Her designs were perfect for me as I wanted something simple, elegant and classy, not the full, Cinderella type of dress. I went to 4 other bridal salons, found other dresses I liked, but Amy's dresses just spoke to me. My 2nd favorite place was Haute Bride, where my mom and one of my best friends fell in love with a dress. I had a hard time deciding on my dress, but I think that was just me stressing and wanting it to be perfect. I chose the Antoinette-II, which is/was just gorgeous! I didn't want to take it off, and I want to do it again to wear my dress and experience the day all over again. It has a sweetheart neckline, unlike Antoinette which you see on the website. The material is gorgeous, the brooch details are gorgeous and even the muslin sheath at the first fitting was beautiful. My husband said he knew I would look beautiful, but he was just stunned. It is definitely worth visiting their salon, the gowns are beautiful, and the experience is wonderful!

Richard Wood Photographics
Richard is fantastic! Unfortunately he was not available for our wedding date. He did however help us find someone even though he wasnt available. He went above and beyond, with many phone and e-mail communications making sure we found someone to fit all our needs. He has a coalition of photographers he works with in the Napa Valley. We love Briana, whom he got us in touch with! I know we would have loved Richard too based on my experience with him, his work on his website and the reviews I read about him!
