Paul + Eliav | Mad Men in Napa | Cole Drake Events

This wedding was incredible…I don’t even know where to begin. From an amazing start of a board game invitation suite by Ceci New York to every single detail thoughtfully planned by Stephanie of Cole Drake Events. These two dapper men had the idea of Mad Men in Napa and all of the vendors took the fantastic idea and ran with it! Their guests were treated to a bruch with Tre Postri, Wine Blending at Franciscan, Cooking school at CIA, an over the top wedding at Calistoga Ranch and a champagne tour and brunch at Domaine Chandon. But the most memorable part of this weekend but not just the exceptional events that were planned but the love and respect that these two men had for each other and their friends & family. I was touched many times throughout the weekend by the sweetness, thoughtfulness and gentle humor that they shared. It was a gift to work with them!

Everyone worked tirelessly on this wedding to make these two gentleman’s dream come true! It was an awesome sight to see!
