Patrick & Lily’s French Laundry Garden Fall Proposal

The French Laundry is a favorite of both locals and visitors alike, and their garden across the street is a great place to have a look at the fresh ingredients being used to prepare your meal. It also happens to be the perfect place to propose, especially when fall colors are involved!

Patrick and Lily had secured a reservation for the famous restaurant far in advance, but days before their meal (and proposal… unbeknownst to Lily of course), Napa County entered the COVID-19 purple tier — the strictest tier, with no indoor dining allowed. Luckily, The French Laundry had enough outdoor space for socially-distanced, outdoor seating, leading to minimal disruption. Before their meal, P&L had a little walk around the garden, where he got down on one knee and asked the big question. Check out this beautiful fall proposal in the photos below!
