August Wedding at Antrim 1844 | Katie + Adam

"Adam and Katie are down to earth, music loving, free spirits and the Antrim was the absolute perfect location for their wedding. They were married under a giant tree, which made for a perfect balance of romantic and organic backdrops. I could have photographed this venue for days.

And just when I thought their wedding couldn't get any better Adam surprised Katie .. as well as all of their guests .. with an amazing fireworks display halfway through the reception. It was an unforgettable wedding and an honor to document for them."

March Wedding at Antrim 1844 | Jane + Will

I knew Will and Jane’s wedding day was going to be amazing from the first time we met.  Will and Jane are just so full of love so I couldn’t have asked for a better couple to have on a rainy wedding day at Antrim 1844.  While the entire venue is gorgeous outside, because of the weather, we spent a fair amount of time shooting in door.  Of course, I had to sneak them outside for a romantic, heavy rain, umbrella portrait.  Adventurous couples are the best!  Thank you to the entire staff of Antrim 1844 for providing such a beautiful venue and a memorable day.

Will and Jane are such a beautiful couple- inside and out. I am so lucky to have had the chance to work with them throughout the planning process and to help them on their BIG day!  Even the weather couldn’t bring this awesome couple down!  I would like to personally thank Will and Jane for choosing Antrim 1844 to host their gorgeous wedding.  I wish you all the best!

Joseph Phelps Vineyards

In the late 1960’s, Joseph Phelps was running one of the largest construction companies in the U.S., Hensel Phelps Construction Company, when he won the bid to build Souverain Winery (now Rutherford Hill) located a few miles outside of St. Helena. Enamored with the beautiful Napa Valley and contemplating a career change. In 1972, Joe bought the 600-acre Connolly cattle ranch in Spring Valley, and began planting vineyards and construction of a winery. The Joseph Phelps winery was completed in 1974 in time for harvest, crushing grapes for the first Insignia and the first Syrah bottlings. It put Joseph Phelps Vineyards on the map of top Napa Valley wine producers.

Four decades later, the flagship wine, Insignia, is recognized as one of the world’s greatest wines. Thirty-one of thirty-seven vintages have been rated 90 or more points by various wine publications, including three perfect 100 scores for the 1991, 1997 and 2002 vintages from Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate in Mr. Parker’s Historical Tasting of Insignia report, published November 2013. The 2002 vintage of Insignia was also awarded “Wine of the Year” by Wine Spectator magazine in 2005.
