I had a blast being the photographer for the ISES (International Special Events Society) Napa-Sonoma chapter’s 6th birthday party! It was held in the showroom of Wine Country Parties and Events as well as The Lux Productions, who does lighting and sound for weddings and events all over Napa, Sonoma and bay area. Other sponsors included: Wine Country Parties and Events, Jacuzzi Vineyards weddings. Great chefs cooked for us from Josh Silvers at Jackson’s Syrah Bistro of Santa Rosa, Jeff Mall of Zin Restaurant and wine bar of Healdsburg, and Carlo Cavallo of Sonoma-Meritage of Sonoma. Patisserie Angelica did the delicious French macarones and chocolate truffle wedding cake. St Francis Vineyards, Vinassa,Winery and Cline winery of Sonoma wines were served from Bartenders Unlimited, Jess Flood event design, and the DJ from Nor Cal Pro sound rocked the house. All photography by Melissa Mermin, a San Francisco and Napa wedding photographer and documentary wedding photo journalist. Click on the picture to watch the ISES Napa-Sonoma Love Story show!
