Ramona Real Wedding: Karina and James

When James Gallivan, a 25-year-old known for being a jokester, got down on one knee at a Napa winery in front of Karina Hale, her parents, and a group of wine-tasting strangers, the 26-year-old’s first thought was, He’d better not be fake proposing to me right now. He wasn’t, and the couple married at Karina’s great-grandfather’s Ramona ranch in May; the circular ceremony made even their 250-guest wedding feel intimate.

Don’t get caught up in ‘perfection,’” Karina advises. “Nothing is perfect, but if you center your day on your top values, everything will fall into place.”

Ramona Real Wedding: Karina and James“The moment I put this dress on, I had a feeling it may be the one,” Karina remembers. “When I came out of the dressing room, my friends and family started crying. It was the perfect fit and the lace was like nothing I’d ever seen.”
