In case you didn’t know, we’ve been crushing hard on Nicole Hanriot for a while now… Founder + designer of swimwear company, Beach Riot (we shared part of her latest collection on our Instagram a few months back), Nicole has a keen eye for details + design. When her beau, Josh, proposed to her in Napa (he’s from Northern California), they knew that having their wedding in Napa County at Long Meadow Ranch would make perfect sense! With the help of Four Leaf Clover Studio and Roque Events, the duo channeled their love of California — the lush wilderness of the North combined with the cool bohemian-luxe vibes of the South — and crafted one rockin’ ceremony… And we mean rocking! Nicole’s bridesmaids, or babes, as she fondly referred to them as, donned custom leather jackets with a “Babe” sticker on the back, along with dresses in a gorgeous floral print by none other than Beach Riot. Their reception was held in a barn, where they recreated Coachella’s famous Sahara tent with lasers + brought in a custom-made “Just Married” neon sign, and a full bar!
Nicole shares with us One of my favorite weddings and the one that inspired me the most was Kate Moss’s effortlessly chic wedding. We wanted to create something like that, but with our own touches + style. Our friends enjoy a killer party, so we started the day off with the winery’s rosé being served prior to the ceremony.
Ready to see all the magic moments captured by Jordan Voth? Let’s look!!
*MAJOR HEART EYES*
We get why she calls them babes… :) Love, love, love those bridesmaids dresses by Beach Riot!
That back!! And the darling fresh floral crown by Four Leaf Clover!
The groomsmen all wore suits from Topman.
So SWEET!! The way Josh is looking at Nicole as she’s walking down the aisle… The two had one of their close friends marry them, which made it extra special.
Processional: Love Me Like You Do performed by String Quartet
Recessional: Signed, Sealed & Delivered by Stevie Wonder
First Dance: Skinny Love by Bon Iver
Nicole shares We loved the venue so we didn’t want to mix colors with the beautiful scenery… We stuck to white + green and lots of baby’s breaths, which made it really ethereal and dreamy.
Is this the coolest jacket, or what?!
How awesome is this dinner + reception space?
Nicole shares One of our favorite appetizers was the Ham and Cheddar Biscuits with pepper jelly… For our wedding favors, my mom made everyone homemade Texas Pepper Jelly!
Amidst all the hustle and bustle, make sure to take moments for just two of you to be together — appreciating the day, your friends, and of course, each other. After the day has passed, you'll look back on the photos and the memories you can replay in your head, those are the ones you will cherish most. I definitely recommend having videographer, too. Since the the day is such a rush, you do forget moments and to have them recorded to watch over and over again is really cool.
Nicole + Josh, a HUGE congratulations to the both of you. Thank you so much for sharing your special day with us!
Now if only we could get our hands on a few of those jackets… ;)
