    Tracee is native to Napa Valley and is very proud to call it her home! She started her career in Hotel Operations at high end boutique hotels and eventually got her taste of the event side at The Culinary Institute of America where she worked with some of the most talented professionals in the industry and fell in love with the Wedding world! She has always been creative and artistic so no surprise she loves the design aspect and uniqueness that comes with each Wedding!

    Q and A with Tracee

    Red, White or Sparkling? 
    Red and specifically, Pinot Noir, please! My favorite is Robert Sinskey Pinot Noir!

    Where is your hometown? 
    I was born somewhere in the Pacific Islands but being adopted and not knowing anything different, I am happy to tell people I am Native to Napa, grew up here and raised my family here, Napa Valley is my home!

    Which Disney princess are you? 
    Maybe Snow White only because I LOVE animals and would be gullible enough to eat an apple from a stranger in the woods. And who wouldn’t want to be woken up by a kiss from a handsome Prince!  

    Favorite things to do outside of work?
    Having our family vacations in Tahoe at my Uncle Tom’s cabin every year, I would say skiing is top on my list. In the summer, anything to do with water, hanging by the pool or a day trip to the beach!

    Heels or flats?
    I love heels on everyone else but for me, you will find me in flats mostly! Comfort has become more important to me especially working in the event world!

    Having grown up in Sonoma, working at one of Napa’s most well-known resorts feels like the right fit. Emma started her hospitality career at a young age helping her father with events at a Sonoma Square Restaurant and planning tea parties, much to her younger sister’s dismay. After graduating from Saint Mary’s College of California with a BA in Communication, Emma moved down to Los Angeles and interned with a Bridal Stylist, giving her the opportunity to further her interest in the Wedding Market.

    Emma comes to the Silverado Resort by way of the Moraga Country Club. Where she quickly moved up the ranks from Server to Catering Assistant, to Food and Beverage Manager, where she not only managed the restaurant but sold and executed every event on property. With a desire to move back home to Wine Country, Emma is now our Wedding Services Manager and looks forward to growing with the Resort and make Silverado her second home.

    Q and A with Emma:

    Favorite time of year for a wedding?
    I am a huge fan of October Weddings! It is still warm enough to be outdoors, but you have a little more crisp-ness in the air, and the leaves start to change colors!

    Red, White, or Sparkling?
    Red or Sparkling! I love Cabernet and Sparkling Brut!

    Heels or flats?
    I’m a flats girl more often than not. I’m very hands-on with my Weddings so my feet would be way too sore if I ran around in Heels all day!

    Veil or no veil?
    I genuinely feel like every Bride should choose what’s best for her style and vibe she wants for her wedding! Make it unique!

    Which Disney princess are you?
    I feel like I am Cinderella with a little Elsa thrown in there!

    Favorite things to do outside of work?
    I am a total foodie, so I love trying new restaurants. Taking road trips. And I have a Disneyland obsession!
