Kim, a lawyer, and Chut, an architect, brought together 162 of their friends and family in Napa Valley for a three-day affair to celebrate their marriage with wine and croquet. 

The meet-cute:
We were introduced by a common friend (who became Chut’s best man at our wedding) over dinner sometime at the end of 2013. I knew then that Chut had taken a liking to me, but it was only six months after that he asked me out on a date.

The secret to a happy relationship:
I think the main key is communication. I firmly believe that openness and honesty make a marriage.

The proposal:
Chut popped the question last August while we were on a trip to New York with some friends. He proposed while we were having a picnic he had prepared for us in Central Park. I didn’t expect it then and I was quite surprised.

Their favorite wedding highlights:
We had a three-day event consisting of a welcome party at wine estate Inglenook, our wedding ceremony at Meadowood, St. Helena, and a croquet brunch the next day. There was no program at our reception—only speeches and dancing after dinner. We don’t have just one favorite moment, as we were overwhelmed with so much love and joy around us throughout the wedding festivities. Having our closest friends and family travel so far to be with us touched us a great deal.

The honeymoon:
It's a Scandinavian vacation. It’s our first time in the Nordic countries, and we’re happy to be exploring them together.
