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 ...

This wedding was charming, timeless & full of romance! It took place at Temecula Creek Inn at the Meadows. To start Megan & Kyle’s ceremony was performed by Tom Garza, Megan’s Godfather and a long time family friend which always makes it extra special. They also chose to incorporate a wine box activity that family members could be a part of by contributing some symbolic items into their wine box to give the newlyweds some meaningful advice to weave into their marriage. I can’t think of a more beautiful way to begin their family story!

Everything about their wedding was a family affair, from their playlist, to décor, to the romantic elegant handmade bouquet.

"Like the wildflower...you must allow yourself to grow in all the places people never thought you would”. E.V.

Our adorable young couple enjoyed a perfect fall day at Lake Hemet's new Wildflower wedding location, one of three new wedding venues in the Inland Empire, San Bernardino, San Jacinto Mountains. Wildflower weddings offer weddings and receptions at Lake Hemet, Lake Gregory and the St. Moritz Lodge.

Here for this event we were inspired by a vintage trailer used for the bridal suite which fit perfectly with our “Boho” themed wedding and reception. 

The “First look” or Reveal is without a doubt one of the most touching parts of the bride and grooms wedding day experience. If your photographer or coordinator is trying to talk you in to doing this before your wedding, listen to them! As evidenced by Lisa and John’s images here, beautifully captured by Bryan Miller Photography, the emotion is real, and it is heartfelt.  The benefits of the reveal are many, it is private, it is emotional, it allows the couple to be in the moment, and often it saves precious time at the reception allowing the couple to join in on the fun and shorten their post ceremony photography. 

Eric and Wendy let the colors of Wine country; burgundy, burnt orange, crisp white and espresso influence their gorgeous love story at their wedding at Lake Oak Meadows at Vitagliano Vineyards in Temecula.

The fall theme fit perfectly in this fresh October day, high white puffy clouds suggested a hint of rain and the tent was insurance for that, but in the end it was a perfect autumn day.  Madam Palooza and Sweat Pea Florist, as always stole the show for décor and ambience.  

Brittany always wanted the bright burst of color that Sunflowers represent when planning her wedding. This crisp clean yellow and white wedding brightened every corner of the day.  White lanterns, natural elements like birch branches and Gerbera daisies popped off the lush green background at Lake Oak Meadows on this sultry summer day. Even the thunderclouds could not darken this event and as seen in these images by Ian Andrew Photography actually provided the stark and dramatic backdrop for the explosion of color.  All the charming details provided by Madam Palooza such as the old time photo booth and the cookie bar made this a truly dazzling and memorable day for Bryan and Brittany.

Someone once said “Canada is like a little jewel sitting on top of a great continent”. We think our bride Shari and her groom Colt, who met while in Canada are the true jewels of the day, they sparkled and shined. Their wedding day was brilliant and they were polished just like any precious stone.  This couple wanted to bring elements of travel and home (yes Canada eh?) to their wedding day.  With the help of Michael’s Flower Girl (Mfg florist) and Madam Palooza Prop Rentals we were able to incorporate some of the bride’s personal pieces like globes and bird cages with old world clocks, a vintage sofa and pretty draping fabrics creating a look that was sweet and individualized…just like them. 

Justin and Samantha celebrated their love story by adding in touches of their heritage with Jewish traditions creating a very personalized event.

By incorporating customs such as the Shabbat, the Havdallah, using a Chupah for vows, breaking of the bread with the Challah (and the breaking of the glass of course!) couples are able to share their ethnicity and honor their backgrounds.  

And no Hebrew wedding reception would be complete without the exhilarating Hora chair dance; traditions add memories.
