Desert-Inspired Napa Valley Wedding Featured on BRIDES

We loved working with Amanda + John on their recent summer chic wedding celebration at Tre Posti in St. Helena. Guests enjoyed a ceremony in the vineyard, cocktail hour in the garden grove and reception on the lawn.

We incorporated Himalayan rock salt in the most unique ways to highlight the Desert Chic theme. We started with crushed rock pink salt for the escort card trays that were custom built by Laura Lambrix Designs. That inspired us to bring in rock salt blocks to highlight the table numbers in a unique way. Guests loved them and we absolutely loved how they turned out! The floral was designed with the theme in mind and Soulflower definitely hit the mark throughout the wedding!  

Thank you to our amazing vendor team who executed our design + vision. Thank you Taylor McCutchan Photography for capturing the day so beautifully. Click HERE to see the full feature on BRIDES!

Q: How did you get into wedding planning?

I am Born and raised in Napa Valley and grew up working in the hospitality industry and at the age of 17 started working at a 2 michelin starred restaurant. Hospitality is in my blood and that is why I knew Napa Valley was where I wanted to start ROQUE Events. Napa Valley is the mecca for quality service and over the top hospitality. When people visit they expect the best food, wine, and unique experiences. I wanted to contribute my talents and passion for high end events + experiences by creating a truly unique production and design company in the heart of where expectations are high.

Q: What’s your favorite part of the job?

My favorite part is always receiving the photos from a wedding we have produced and designed. It lets us relive every second of the wedding. We work with some amazing photographers who capture the best moments of smiles and tears throughout the wedding day that takes us back to how happy the bride and groom were that day. That’s our main job at the end of the day.

Q: What are your hobbies or non-work-related activities?

I obtained my 1st level sommelier certificate from the Court of Master Sommeliers. Being in Napa Valley with a history of being in the hospitality industry, I have always had a passion for food and wine. Napa Valley provides the perfect blend of that. In my free time, I love trying out the new restaurants and wineries that keep popping up in the bustling Napa Valley.
