Samantha and Brad met while in college and quickly realized that their connection was something special. The two love to travel and make each trip a unique and exciting adventure, together always trying to make each new place and experience top their last. Samantha, from a young age dreamed of a California style wedding and that she found at The Greenhouse at Driftwood. She wanted the space to be inspired by the nature and surroundings of the Napa Valley and Santa Barbra area. Once the two saw this special greenhouse they knew this was the place Samantha had been dreaming of. The two were married surrounded by lush greenery, towering cactus along with white beautiful flowers, a small sense of California right here in the Hill Country. The night when on without a hitch and in this breathtaking greenhouse the couple danced under an enormous chandelier made of fresh hanging white flowers. As Samantha and Brad finally headed out into their new life, they were led down a sparking path by all of their loved ones and onto their next destination.
