Happily ever after starts here at Lake Oak Meadows; where every couple is special to us and every wedding is a dream come true. Alvina and Jennifer were a dream to work with and her choice of White, rose gold and gold were so elegant. The horse and carriage never gets old and always brings a tear to my eye. Jennifer and her dad had the best ride on their way to the ceremony site and Anthony David Photography captured that beautifully. I loved all the black and white photography because it shows so much detail without color distracting the eye. The property was in full bloom for this June 1st wedding and we hope that this couple’s love continues to bloom and grow and that they will live as happy every day as they did today.

Only the brave of heart plan a winter wedding and Tina and Eric Cui were the bravest of heroes this day, with help from their wedding planner and coordinator Hayley Radford of Celebrations by Di & Co. they pulled off the winter magic displayed here. This elegant wedding at Lake Oak Meadows had it all; grand whitewashed doors to enter through after arriving by a beautiful horse-drawn carriage by Tucker Carriages, a unique birch arch decorated with soft pastel flowers and grandma as their flower girl it was all too precious for words. Though it was a chilly day the rain was nowhere in sight as they took their vows; still all the guests were happy to get into the clear wall and ceiling dramatic tent with 7’ crystal chandeliers and elegant space heaters to add ambiance.

Inspired by the Mediterranean coastline and  Madam Palooza’s gorgeous blue settee we created a styled shoot filmed on location at Vitagliano Vineyards in Temecula by the always amazing L Parker Photography; we felt a sense of calm and serenity caress our senses.  By adding soft tones of mocha, pale pink and soft peach to the cornflower blue bouquets and dresses we felt the warmth of the mid-afternoon sun reflected on the scene.  The surrounding natural landscape lends itself to romance while reclining on the sofa enjoying this beautiful day.   Top it all off with bubbly and scented candles and it was a sensational day!  Consider this very popular color scheme for your wedding and experience the beauty of blue.

Whether you thought the movie by the same name was controversial or you loved it; you can’t deny the sophistication of the beautiful shades of gray in these bridesmaids dresses this past October when Kelly and Matt were married at The Temecula Creek Inn, Temecula Ca

Couples doing a reveal or fist look tell me all the time how happy they were that they listened to sage advice (usually my powers of persuasion and the photographers gentle nudging ha-ha) and took a few moments to escape before the ceremony and all the hoopla began to spend quality time alone together before hosting a lavish event such as a wedding can be. 

The Newest, Hippest private party location in town.

Bo Cakes Bakery has now is opened her newest operation...Bo Cakes 49 in the uptown arts district. This private banquet room seating up 49 guests is DARLING! Brides and grooms, clients of all ages can celebrate rehearsal dinners, birthday parties, wedding showers and baby showers or any other celebration you can imagine. 

Our recent bride and groom Heather and Terry sent all of our hearts aflutter with their adoring gazes and their charming dispositions. Throughout the entire planning, they were happy and lighthearted and so sweet to each other. The Temecula Creek Inn lends itself to being any style and theme a girl could want from elegant and dazzling to intimate and rustic.  

Heather chose to use the colorful bursts of nature to inspire her. The organic ceremony site and modern simple centerpieces provided and designed by Soiree Designs and Events were perfect for this space.

It is said that in the search for love; one may have to kiss a lot of frogs before discovering “the one”. In the case of Joanne and Joel, married this past August in Temecula wine country this couple found their bliss in each other's kindness right away. The bride Joanne was a pleasure to work with from the start, as lovely inside as she is beautiful on the outside.  And after meeting Joel I understood instantly why she fell for him. 

The wedding was planned to include a colorful yet vintage winery look set around the backdrop Vitagliano Vineyards @ Lake Oak Meadows  gorgeous grounds on the lake of fire and water

Perfect shades of pastels like these pinks and peaches and a perfectly lovely bride are what made this wedding so beautiful!  

Those soft summer months beg for soft pretty pastels and lots of wood elements from nature offsetting the absolute charm of The Temecula Creek Inn.  Photographer Ray Kang captured the absolute love story here flawlessly.

I loved the image of the Vows sign because the ceremony was so special and heartfelt.  It provided the “just right mood” for a summer love wedding and reception. 

The story of Jovan and Bret, married last year at Vitagliano Vineyards @ Lake Oak Meadows begins and ends with their endearing love.  This couple were charming from start to finish and as kindhearted as they are beautiful.  We had so much fun planning details of this engaging wine themed wedding.  Some of my personal favorite colors of fall were incorporated into the rich lustrous dresses of Pantone’s color of the year 2016 Marsala Wine.  This is a great year round color for winery weddings because all skin tones look lovely in this color and the deep hues are bursting with warmth. Jovan and Bret also paired the Marsala tones ...
