Wedding Day Attire: Napa Valley Casual-Chic
- For men, a nice shirt and pants, tie optional.
- For ladies, dresses or skirts. High heels are NOT recommended, as the ceremony will include grass, hills, and gravel and the reception will include grass and dirt (at the fire pit). A wedge heel might work, though.
Please dress in layers! Temperatures can change drastically between day and night, from a hot and sunny 80 F in the daytime to a breezy chilly 45 F at night. You'll want to be able to start light and change into something warm at night.

If you are planning on drinking during our reception, we strongly recommend that you arrive and depart in a taxi cab. We recommend Black Tie Cab: 888-544-8294, http://www.blacktietaxi.com/ (Think about it: A round-trip to a Napa hotel: $20-30. Enjoying yourself at the reception: priceless!)
If you're driving, parking will be available on the grounds and a nearby school. Someone will be available between 2:15pm and 3:00pm to help guide you.
DO NOT park in front of the house - that's reserved for buses.
Alternatively, you may consider taking a taxi-cab to and from the location. The round trip would cost around $30 and you can have all the fun you want without having to think about driving. Otherwise, choose a designated driver.

Depart on shuttles for wedding ceremony: Di Rosa Art Preserve -- ~3:00pm
As our guests, you will be transported on buses three miles through the vineyards to the Di Rosa Art Preserve, where you will be treated to a half-hour gallery tour. This land combines two of our favorite things -- art and nature -- and we felt that its zany nature, combined with stunning Napa Valley vistas, represents the best of both Napa Valley and our spirit. Keep in mind that some art is not appropriate for children.
Note: Guests will only be permitted into the wedding grounds on the shuttles, not in individual cars. If you miss the departing buses, you miss the wedding (but we'll see you at the reception!).
Galley Tour: 30 minutes
Following the gallery tour, you will be led to the site of our wedding ceremony. Following the ceremony, it's back on the buses, and on to the the reception at Sabrina's parents' home.
Reception: ~5:45pm until the wee hours
Hors d'oeuvres and full dinner will be served
Dancing, music, and all that good stuff
Bonfires with S'mores
