Napa Valley Marriage Proposals never fail to be stunning! David and Catie traveled out to wine country the day after Thanksgiving this year for what she thought would be just a fun trip. But, at their first stop on their winery tour Friday morning, they “stumbled upon” a beautiful table with plaid Christmas gifts! David then explained that these are a few of Catie’s early Christmas gifts, and they opened them one by one. Each gift represented a piece of Catie’s personality. A healthy cookbook for two (because Catie has been making David start to eat things like kale and quinoa); two coffee mugs (because every morning the couple takes time to have coffee together at their kitchen table and talk about the day ahead); a personalized bible with Catie’s future initials on them; a children’s nativity book (to give to their future kids); and a Christmas ornament that Catie will never forget – an engagement ring!
After she said yes, the couple continued on to one more wine tasting stop, and then to a celebratory dinner. When they walked into the restaurant Catie found her best friend, brother, and parents waiting at their table! David had flown in their favorite people to surprise Catie after the proposal! SO SWEET :)

Happy Wedding Wednesday! Lately I have been seeing a lot of plaid incorporated into events, and with the holidays upon us I decided to share some of this wonderfully-warm inspiration with all of our future brides! From tablecloths to bridesmaid dress, and from groom’s ties to flower ribbons, this iconic print is a sure way to bring the winter season into your wedding decor!
Can you believe Christmas is less than 10 days away?! If you are still looking to pop the question during the holiday season here are a few tips and ideas we highly suggest! If you are stuck on the HOW to propose part, we got you covered here.
1. Make it thoughtful
You might be feeling the pressure but you still can make it thoughtful and personalized for her. Consider 3 of her favorite things (i.e.: favorite Christmas tradition, flower, and holiday movie) and incorporate that into your proposal. Sometimes the smallest details speak the loudest.
2. Capture the proposal.
If you plan to pop the question on Christmas Day and a professional photographer isn’t an option, ask a family member to do it. It’s better to get it on film or camera, even if you aren’t 100% sure, because you can’t do it over!
3. Use your resources!
If you’re spending it with family then use them as a resource to create a ruse. If you want to surprise her at a special location, have a family member distract her since she will just think they want to spend time catching up while you’re visiting. If you are both extroverts, consider involving the family in the actual proposal whether it’s popping out of Christmas boxes or just standing by to cheer after she says “yes!”
4. Play off the Holiday season
Think about all the fun things you can do around Christmas- holiday lights, ice skating, decorating a Christmas tree, exchanging Christmas stockings, etc. and use that to create the perfect lead in for your fun and romantic proposal!
New Years and Valentine’s Day proposals are going to be popping up before we know it so plan ahead and get started on your proposal here! Whether your traveling or staying local, we can help personalize your proposal ideas. We can incorporate any ideas you have (if you don’t have any ideas, we gather helpful info anyways so no worries) while creating a memory that she has always dreamed about! We will give it that special female touch. Happy proposing!
