Pop star Christina Aguilera was in a winter mood when she designed her vineyard wedding to music executive Jordan Bratman. With planning help from Michael Gapinski of Along Came Mary wedding planners, Aguilera and Bratman's reception tent featured hundreds of birch trees with silver candles, white faux fur table decor, white hydrangeas and chandeliers. They even hired a 14-piece orchestra from the San Francisco Symphony.
All of which seemed fairly out of context to Souza, who has lived and designed celebrity weddings in Napa Valley for the past 11 years.
"They had an L.A. wedding in Napa Valley," she says. "It was in a tent, over-the-top decor, and the reality about Napa weddings is they tend to be more laid-back and outdoors. We have great weather, so if you do a tent, it's not usually fully draped and carpeted unless it's raining out. There's a reason to be here -- to experience the nature. So enclosing the event, you could have that in a ballroom in any city in the U.S."
The couple divorced in April 2011 after nearly five years of marriage. They have one son, Max.
