"We knew we wanted an outdoor wedding in a naturally beautiful woodsy setting," Warisa says. After scouting "every vineyard in Napa," she says, they finally found Beaulieu Gardens, a private estate at Beaulieu Vineyards in Napa Valley. They fell in love with its arbor of branches and vines, under which they staged their reception dinner.

Natural beauty and bunches of blooms create the perfect wedding charm

"We knew we wanted an outdoor wedding in a naturally beautiful woodsy setting," Warisa says. After scouting "every vineyard in Napa," she says, they finally found Beaulieu Gardens, a private estate at Beaulieu Vineyards in Napa Valley. They fell in love with its arbor of branches and vines, under which they staged their reception dinner.

Warisa's gown was custom-made by San Francisco designer Jin Wang. "I've wanted one of her dresses since I was little," says Warisa, whose dream dress was an ivory strapless taffeta gown with a scrunched taffeta bodice and an A-line skirt. With it, Warisa wore her mother's pearls, which she had shortened; the extra pearls were made into drip earrings. Johnny wanted a classic look, so he chose a two-button tuxedo from Nordstrom. On his cuff links, he wore the initials of his late mother—K.T. for Katy Tai.
