Back to StoriesDanielle and Garrett Dream Garden Wedding

Garrett proposed to me on December 29, 2018. We were in Hawaii (The Big Island-Kona) with some friends and did a helicopter tour. The tour involved a private waterfall landing along the vast sea cliffs of Kona. We landed and everyone was taking photos in front of the waterfall — we did group and couple photos. When Garrett and I were taking photos he started to whisper into my ear something about spending the rest of his life with me and all of the sudden he was on one knee in front of the waterfall proposing (see photo/videos on Instagram). I ended up finding out that everyone was in on it (even the pilot) and he let us sneak some champagne on to celebrate!

How we met:

We met at Basic Bar & Pizza in San Diego. I saw Garrett in the corner of the bar when I was walking in to meet some friends and thought to myself “ wow….that guy is very handsome–I need to talk to him tonight!” l proceeded to go meet my friends at the bar and long story short Garrett came over to me and asked if he could buy me a drink. I, of course, said yes and we talked the entire night…. the rest is history. I know it sounds cheesy but it was love at first sight.

Danielle’s Ring Details:

Garrett worked closely with Tammi and Tracy to get the perfect ring for Danielle. A 14k rose gold ring, prong-set in the center of the ring is a cut-cornered, rectangular modified brilliant-cut diamond (2.01 carats). By GIA report, the diamond is H in color, SI-2 in clarity and has no fluorescence. Headset on each side of the ring, in a single row, are eleven full-cut diamonds (22 total) weighing .20 carat total. By GIA standards, the diamonds average G/H in color and SI-1 in clarity. 

Garrett’s Ring Details:

Garrett’s ring is very special because we got him the same one as my dad. It is a 14k grey gold eternity-style wedding band. The comfort fit band features a hammered, satin finish. Channel-set in the center of the band, in a single row, are forty-seven full-cut black diamonds. The band is designed by Simon G. 

How we chose our wedding venue and aesthetic:

As a little girl, I always dreamed of getting married in Napa and wine country. My dad is very passionate about wine and owns a winery in Calistoga. We grew up going to Napa every summer for family trips and my dad would always teach us about wine. I started to get Garrett really into wine and we would book trips to Napa and go wine tasting. Garrett and I knew we wanted to get married in wine country and wanted a wedding that was outdoors. We also wanted something private and intimate, but spacious. We searched on Instagram and the internet to get an idea of the type of venue we were really drawn to. We kept finding that we really liked Beaulieu Garden (Garrett actually found this on Instagram), Black Swan Lake, and Meadowood. We told Simone that we are open to anything in wine country and similar looks and feels to the properties we mentioned above. When we did a weekend of site tours with Simone, Beaulieu Garden was the first property she brought us to. I will never forget driving down the driveway and I remember my mom, dad, Garrett and I all looking at each other with excitement. We were graciously greeted and took a tour of the property and it just got better and better. We were walking through the rose garden and I will never forget when Garrett whispered in my ear “I know we have more properties to see but I know this is the one –we are going to get married here.” I laughed at him and told him to keep an open mind because this was the first of a few properties we were touring, but deep down I knew it was the property to. We also found out later that my dad whispered to my mom the same thing Garrett whispered to me–that is when we knew the property was meant to be and we had to get married at Beaulieu Garden. 

Classy, timeless, beautiful, intimate, elegant, memorable, formal, European influence. Beaulieu Garden is truly a magical piece of property– we feel so fortunate to have been able to have had our wedding at this venue. 

Our wedding date was:

August 17, 2019
