Michael & Collen's Elopement: The Inn on First, Napa, CA

If you've ever had the feeling of marrying your best friend you know it's the greatest feeling in the world. Michael and Collen got to experience that thrill when they came to Napa from thousands of miles away to say their "I-do's" in an intimate ceremony at the cute B & B, The Inn on First. 

The morning before heading to Napa for their nuptials, Michael and Collen ran the San Francisco Half Marathon. Now that's a way to start the day! They then checked into their room and got ready for their garden ceremony. 

They relaxed on the patio for a few minutes before the inn's co-owner and executive chef James Gunther presided over their ceremony. 

We got a few fun portraits in the meantime, too, in the gorgeous garden space. 

The ceremony was short and sweet and the couple toasted their union before realxing the evening away and resting their weary legs!

I am honored that Michael and Collen chose me to document their elopement and wish them the best in their lives together.
