Napa Valley is the place to go when you want a high class, romantic, and intimate wedding. Mikhaela and Sean got just that at the Calistoga Ranch in Calistoga, Ca. This couple originally booked us to shoot their wedding at a local Sacramento venue, but decided they wanted a more intimate setting. After going back and forth between dates and exotic locations, they settled on the Calistoga Ranch for their wedding. They are such a fun loving couple and have become good friends of ours.
