As featured in Magnolia Rouge, one of Amy’s timeless weddings deserves the spotlight.
It doesn’t get much more romantic than this celebration of Danielle & Korbin’s at Meadowood in Napa Valley – a venue that very sadly was badly affected by the fires in 2020.
Amy shares, “One of the things we loved about their story is the fact that they’d known each other since they were babies – their parents were long-time friends.”

Double-check your contracts.
When it comes to downsizing your guest list, make sure you know how it affects your budget. Amy says: “With a smaller guest list, you should have many expenses that are lower, due to a smaller guest count. Certain costs (flowers, food & beverage) will be substantially lower if your guest count has shrunk. Other costs however, (your planner, venue, photographer) may stay the same regardless of your wedding size. Take a look at your contracts and talk to your creative team to learn how their fees might adjust based on a more intimate celebration.”
