An Outdoor Chapel in Napa

Yesterday, I spent some time checking out all the amazing photos and details from the wedding of photographer Jessica Claire and Jeff Norwood. It was really an amazing day, so many beautiful details – and it truly was personalized for them. They hired the amazing Jose Villa to capture their day. I love the way they created this outdoor chapel in a field. I’ve been wanting to do something with a door in a field for awhile and LOVE the way it turned out. It’s a perfect cali fall wedding :) A few of my favorite details from the outdoor chapel and her perfect fall bouquet. Congrats to Jessica + Jeff.
