Julie Yufe & Michael Dreyer

March 24, 2012 | Solage Resort, Calistoga

The bride wore an Amsale gown from the N.Y. flagship.

Yufe and her bridesmaids picked dresses that matched seasonal Napa wines.

Yufe’s grandmother traveled from Montreal to California for the first time.

Rich purple bouquets by Frank Alexander NYC decorated the tables outside the ceremony tent.

Yufe carried a bouquet of aubergine calla lilies and fiddlehead fern.

Solage Calistoga served mini lemon cream parfaits with fruit and sable cookie topping.

Big City Revue and DJ Ray Jarrell serenaded guests at the reception.

 

The Couple 
Yufe met Dreyer, a Londoner, while he was in New York for business. “He was supposed to go home the next day but postponed his flight to take me out!” He proposed while they were on a safari in South Africa.

The Venue
The couple picked Napa County as the location for their destination wedding because they share a love for wine and food.

The Details
Guests traveled from all over the world to attend, including as far as Malawi, Mumbai, Australia and Singapore.

The Party
The couple skipped a formal, sit-down meal. “I didn’t want the party to stop and felt that it would be more fun for everyone to just have continuous food, drinks and dancing,” says Yufe.
