About a month ago, we show cased Carol and David’s engagement photos on the hot air balloon. Since the hot air ballon ride was located at the beautiful wine country of Napa Valley, we decided to incorporate the beauty of the location in their photo session.

Carol and David were celebrating their anniversary since high school that weekend. Did I mention they are high school sweet hearts?! πŸ™‚ They stayed at a really cute & romantic Bed and Breakfast Inn named “Old Wolrd Inn” at Napa. I really love the decor and sweetness of the b&b.



The inn keepers of the Old World Inn were super friendly and nice. They gave us tons of tips of where to eat and hooked us up with their buddies at surrounding wineries. They highly recommended one of modernly architected winery around Napa, Artesa Vineyards & Winery. The location is really artistically designed every corner you turn. Check out one of Hy’s inspiration out of the location πŸ™‚


Lastly, we stopped by Bouchaine Vineyards. Hy and I love the wine there. The taste room staff was really knowledgeable and especially passionate about the way philosophy of Bouchaine on viticulture, organic and sustainable farming. We really enjoyed our time chatting with the staff and have a sense of appreciation of the glass in our hand. Hy and I love to go to vineyards and tasting rooms which are not off the main road. We love to drive the back road of Napa and discover hidden treasures that we didn’t know before. Thanks to many weddings we’ve been at Napa, we got to enjoy the area quite a bit through out the year!



And .. I am crazy about Mini. Every time I see HyStudio bride who owns a Mini, I asked for photos πŸ™‚ And of course, most of them are crazy about Mini like I do, so they don’t mind at all. We had a yellow Mini in 2006, check out our engagement portfolio (picture 18). This year, 2007, we have a red. Hm.. what’s coming in 2008? πŸ˜‰



Ok girls. Hope you had a wonderful labor day weekend. Hy and I certainly did. This coming week, we will have a lot of photos to show you. I plan to write daily this week. Drop by everyday!
