Breana & Scott in Napa Valley, CA

Black Swan Lake, a private estate in Northern California's wine country, was the shoo-in setting for Breana and Scott May wedding. "Although we live in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, I was born in L.A. and grew up visiting the Bay Area, and my dad collects Napa Valley wines, so I always dreamed of getting married there," explains Breana, 26, a nutritionist and chef. She had been working as a sommelier when she started dating fellow oenophile Scott, an old friend she hadn't seen since high school. Six months after the rekindling, Scott, a 29-year-old grad student and former chef, proposed: "He got down on one knee at the empty farmer's market and told me I was the milk to his cookies, the macaroni to his cheese." And just like that, their wedding theme of foodie matchups was born.
