Napa California Real Wedding by Gabriel Harber Photography

Simplicity does not mean boring or drab. Simplicity can be elegant. When Kate and Richard got married in California, it was beautiful. It was an outdoor affair that simply celebrated their love without all of the over the top decor or ceremony. outdoor-napa-california-real-weddings-blog-feature-2 napa-california-weddings-wedding-blog outdoor-napa-california-real-weddings-blog-feature-5 outdoor-napa-california-real-weddings-blog-feature-4 outdoor-napa-california-real-weddings-blog-feature outdoor-napa-california-real-weddings-blog-feature-6 california-weddings outdoor-napa-california-real-weddings-blog-feature-8 outdoor-napa-california-real-weddings-blog-feature-9

Kate looks like a dream as she walked down the aisle. Her flowing sleeveless gown with veil were so organic. Her jewelry was a simple necklace and drop earrings.Richard wore a gray suit and tie.

It is so beautiful as they exchanged their vows under the canopy. It was incredible as they communed with nature by the water or in the field. It was just breathtaking.
