Darlene and Jim,

Neil and I wanted to thank you for an amazing wedding! You guys are the absolute best --everything was perfect and all of our guests were singing your praises!! We really appreciate all of the hard work. I never worried about a thing--everything went off without a hitch. Please thank all of the vendors (which I will do as well when we return) and let them know we would be happy to recommend them all--the food was delicious, the croquembouche was amazing, the flowers were beautiful, the band was over the top, the photographer was amazing, the musicians were terrific, Mary Jane at Mont la Salle could not have been nicer and did a phenomenal job with the rehearsal, the hotels (Westin and River Terrace) were amazing with service and welcome/brunch events...I could go on.

We'll touch base when we return from the honeymoon. Thanks again!

Dear Darlene and Jim,

I cannot thank you enough for everything you did for us on our wedding day and the days leading up. You made my visions come true. The ceremony and cave were better than I could have ever imagined. The place was absolutely beautiful and my guests were blown away as they entered the cave. You were so professional and personable to work with. From the first day we met, scoping out places to have the wedding, I knew it was a great fit. You were so easy to work with and made our jobs so easy and stress free. Going out of your way to meet us multiple times to make us feel comfortable and making sure everything was taken care of. With it being a destination wedding and coordinating through emails for most of our discussions and decisions you made the process so easy. You worked with us on all issues to make sure we were happy. I had confidence you would be able to pull it off and NOTHING, I mean NOTHING went wrong, which is unheard of for such a large event. Also you were more than willing to provide us other amazing vendors. Jim, the ceremony was better than expected. We loved the examples that you provided us and allowed us to create our own ceremony which made it so personal. It was something that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Once again, I cannot thank you enough. Any couple getting married in the Napa should definitely use the both of you!!!! We will stop by next time we are in the area.

Thank you so much again!!!

Jim and Darlene,

Your patience, help and support guided us through the craziness that is a wedding.

You both are an inspiration as what a wonderful is as well.

Garaventa’s Testimonials

Gina and her team were great to work with. The consultation for our wedding was a lot of fun. Looking at flowers in such a beautiful floral space was lovely. She got our style perfectly. We ordered a wedding bouquet, boutonnieres, corsage wristlets for our mothers and our centerpieces and flowers for our cake.
The finished products were exceptionally beautiful!! We got so many compliments on our flowers and people loved the bouquets and centerpieces.
Everyone is super nice and friendly and they even suggested a place to get our candy dishes at a nearby house.
