Napa Wine Auction, Colgin Cellars ~Napa Event Photography~

Every year I photograph the Napa Wine Auction dinner at Colgin Cellars in St. Helena.  It’s truly an incredibly beautiful place.  Thomas Keller of French Laundry personally caters the event for guests from all over the world who have come for the Napa Auction.  It’s fun to watch Thomas in the kitchen and just how smooth the process is especially when compared to me in the kitchen.

Colgin Cellars is high above Lake Hennessy in St. Helena and provides the most gorgeous of sunsets.  The wine is to die for and the furry residents are most adorable!  Ann and Joe always provide a great time.  Dancing, music, amazing food and a setting not open to the public provide an amazing time.   It’s truly a privilege to photograph this wine country corporate event and all its glory.

Happy Anniversary Matt and Maria! ~San Francisco Wedding Photographer~

I can’t believe it’s been two years already but congrats on baby number two!  Asher will make a delightful big brother.  Your wedding at Colgin Cellars was truly beautiful with an amazing group of friends and family that were just wonderful, delightful and fun.  They sure kept me lauging and on my toes!   The gorgeous flowers, cake by Perfect Endings, design elements by planner Rebecca Feeney and catering by Thomas Keller’s Ad Hoc were just amazing and made for a fabulous event.  My fondest memory though was definitely groomsman Bill Paxton so nervously rehearsing his speech all through the night.   You would think he’d be a natural and it was just so endearing watching his notes shiver in the lights.  You are such a wonderful couple and I wish you just the best in the future.    Thank you for having me as the one to capture such a beautiful day.
