Russell reserved a special area to have a private Domaine Carneros proposal to Mary Catherine without anyone else in the way.

Check out this Domaine Carneros proposal to get an idea of the several options they offer at this venue.

When someone wants a more architectural location, I always suggest a Domaine Carneros proposal since its one of the best in Napa!

Ian Chin was a magician in his former life, I swear. Heard the saying, “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade?” Well let me tell ya, Mr. Ian Chin is Minute Maid himself! We received the photos and I was dumbfounded. His creativity and professionalism made that special day in our lives much more memorable.

Ian did a great job photographing my proposal. He was great with planning the logistics of how to find us without my now-fiancee realizing. The photos he took in the moment and staged afterwards came out great. And he got all the photos to us quickly. His price was also extremely reasonable. Would fully recommend.
