Hans Fahden Winery with Christy & Thomas

Hans Fahden is a magical location... "Cradled between cabernet vineyards and mountainous ridges soaring 1000 feet above the Napa Valley, Hans Fahden is a truly unique setting for your special event. A stunning grand room and wisteria covered tea house overlook a romantic bridge and ponds brimming with lily pads, cattails, and koi. Paths meander through patches of roses, sunflowers, and a sprawling garden that is unparalleled in its natural beauty and rustic elegance. Finally, a dramatic candlelit dinner in our volcanic ash cave offers the perfect ending to an unforgettable day." (From the Hans Fahden website - I couldn't have said it better myself.) Christy & Thomas did something completely unique - they had their cocktail hour BEFORE the ceremony - allowing them to mingle with their guests before tying the knot. After the ceremony (and being serenaded by the most beautiful opera singer), they were ushered into the cave for a romantic candle-lit dinner provided by Wine Valley Catering and decorated by Dallas at Flowers by Dallas. A delicious cake by Perfect Endings completed the wonderful evening.
