COUPLE OF THE WEEK | Victoria & Steve


Bernardus Lodge and Spa | Carmel Valley, CA



Meeting at a wedding in Napa, Steve and Victoria were pretty much destined to be a part of each other’s lives. “I was a bridesmaid and Steve was the groomsman I was paired with”. Victoria, there to stand by her best friend from college, and Steve for his childhood friend, had no idea that being in a wedding would lead to their own. The two spent the next year and a half creating beautiful memories together and then Steve decided to pop the question! “Steve brought me back to where it all began, Napa”. During a long weekend getaway, at one of Victoria’s favorite wineries, she was handed the best letter a girl could ever ask for. At the end of the hand written note Victoria was prompted to turn around, where she found Steve waiting on one knee. The perfect intimate, private moment surrounded by a garden of flowers and growing pumpkins, these two would begin their journey of planning their perfect day!



Describing their relationship as the perfect balance of spontaneous and relaxed, they knew they wanted to find a venue that fit them. “Something beautiful, timeless, but not over the top” Victoria recalls. Somewhere that they could picture themselves creating another amazing memory together. After walking the garden’s at Bernardus Lodge and Spa, they instantly fell in love with the natural landscape and views. It had everything they needed to make it the best day ever! Steve’s favorite part of the day was seeing Victoria walk down the aisle. “She looked absolutely beautiful and I couldn’t wait to make her my wife”. Victoria’s favorite part was right after the ceremony when the two were able to spend their first few minutes together as husband and wife. Beaming with emotions, it was everything they dreamt it would be!
