When the Anna Elizabeth reached out to me asking to second shoot for her for a wedding at Auberge Resorts newest Napa Valley location, I couldn’t say yes fast enough. Stanly Ranch is in Napa, California and is absolutely stunning. Not only is it a gorgeous wedding venue but it also has an amazing restaurant and one of my favorite sunset views in the valley. Because it’s all the way at the bottom of Napa Valley, the sun actually sets at the horizon – it’s amazing. If you’re staying in Napa, you have to at least stop by their restaurant and enjoy the delicious food and the views!
Stanly Ranch has so many beautiful spaces and Victoria and Tanuj utilized them all so well! As guests arrived, they had drinks in the Grange (the garden). I’ve seen this space used for dinner for smaller, intimate wedding days as well. That space flowed really well into Cutting Garden for the ceremony. The florist did an AMAZING job and everything looked absolutely stunning. Victoria and Tanuj’s written vows were so sweet and I loved how excited and happy they were coming back down the aisle just married. They opted for their first moment seeing each other to be during the ceremony so it was so so special.
After the ceremony, the guests headed into the Garden House for cocktail hour – again, another gorgeous space on this property. While the guests were mingling I ran over to the Glasshouse Barn where my jaw literally fell to the floor when I saw how freaking beautiful the reception space was. The florals, the blue plates, the light peeking in – everything looked incredible. I couldn’t stop taking photos, it was just too good.
As I mentioned before, the sunset from this venue is stunning but blue hour is just as beautiful! We had so much fun up at the infinity sign (another gorgeous spot for smaller ceremonies) and running around the vineyards. This was just such an incredible day to be a part of. I can’t wait for my next wedding here at Stanly Ranch!
