An Elegant Summer Wedding in Napa Valley

One couple hosts a wedding with phenomenal food and rich purple decor at the Culinary Institute of America—where the bride's sister also wed years before.

When it came to time to search for a venue, the bride knew just where to start. The Culinary Institute of America's Napa Valley campus had hosted her sister's wedding years before, and "we loved it so much we decided to go back," Cristina says.
