Nadine and Dan


April 26-28, 2018

Travel has always been a big part of our relationship and when we thought about where to have our wedding, we knew it was something we wanted to incorporate. Napa Valley became one of our favorite places after an incredible visit in 2016. With its world-class wines, amazing scenery, and farm-to-table ethos, Napa was the perfect destination to hold our wedding celebration. We can’t wait to celebrate our special day with our closest family and friends, and show you all what makes this place so special to us.

"I'll go everywhere with you"

Nadine & Dan


With a little help from their mutual friend Annie, the boy from Jersey met the girl from London. On a fall night in 2012 at one of Hoboken’s finest establishments, Dan struck up a conversation with Nadine about his beloved Arsenal football club. Little did he know, Nadine knew all about his Gunners having grown up only 25 mins away from the club in London. This was just the beginning of the adventures of Nadine and Dan…

Fast forward, four and a half years later, Dan got down on one knee in the empty New York apartment we would soon call our new home (…only after dropping the ring and stealthily scooping it up). After two years of long distance, five apartments, three cities and countless cross-country flights, Dandine finally became official.

  • Welcome Mehndi

    Please join us to begin the weekend festivities at the Welcome Mehndi!

This will be a modern take on the event with a mixture of tradition, music and fun!

    The bride and groom, their families and bridal party will be wearing traditional Pakistani clothing. If you are interested in renting or buying clothing for the event, take a look at the Details tab for more info!

SolBar is worth a visit for any foodie! Located inside the Solage resort in Calistoga, the Michelin-starred restaurant offers fresh, innovative California cuisine that feels weirdly healthy too.
