Falkner Winery Wedding - Temecula Wedding - Rainy Wedding Day

When you dream of your wedding you never dream that it will RAIN on your wedding day. I know, I said RAIN (the awful word every bride flinches at). This beautiful couple had the storm of all storms on their wedding day at Falkner Winery. They ended up getting married inside the barrel room and their wedding reception above in the Pinnacle Restaurant. You would never guess by the grace and pure joy that this couple showed that it was raining. They didn’t mind at all and we had the absolute best time stomping through the puddles and walking around in the rain capturing the most beautiful photos of this bride and groom. Please enjoy these amazing Falkner Winery wedding photos below.

Lake Oak Meadows Wedding - Temecula Wedding - Rainy Wedding Day

Temecula weddings are a very popular location to get married with so many beautiful wineries and golf courses to choose from….a bride can’t go wrong. Temecula is known for sunny warm weather…except in February and March. Unfortunately for this couple rain was in the forecast. Our couple however made the best of it; we walked all over Lake Oak Meadows and still were able to capture all of the photos they wanted. When you’re a wedding photographer your job is to make things work. So when it’s raining or might rain we show up in rain boots, rain coats, and have two HUGE umbrellas to cover our couple and our equipment. I think despite all of the obstacles we faced for this Temecula wedding we were able to capture all of the special moments of their Lake Oak Meadows wedding day.

Falkner Winery Wedding - Temecula Wedding - Air-force Wedding

At a winery weddings are ALWAYS beautiful and let me tell you Falkner winery is definitely no exception. If you love Temecula and want to get married at Winery check out Falkner winery. This venue has two ceremony and reception locations. This couple chose to get married on the top area in the garden. The garden offers a beautiful grassy area covered with lush trees and gorgeous plants that surround the space. Since the garden is above most of the property you are able to overlook all of the vineyards while you say “I do.” The garden also works as a ceremony and reception space so your guests don’t have far to travel once the ceremony is completed. What a stunning venue and such a gorgeous couple inside and out. We truly hope you enjoy these photos as much as we enjoyed taking them.

Leoness Cellars Winery - Engagement Session

If you haven’t visited Temecula Wine Country you need to. The stunning beauty commands your attention and of course the wine isn’t bad either. With so many beautiful places to get married in Temecula, Leoness Cellars is one of our favorites! This winery was recently updated and added a wonderful restaurant which is a MUST if you’re in the area. The stunning ceremony site overlooks the vineyard and is the perfect location to say “I do”. Since we clearly love this venue we were super excited to have the opportunity to photograph this couple’s engagement session at Leoness Cellars Winery. When you have AMAZING couples to work with life is so much more fun! These two were a blast….we had lots of laughs and cuddly moments surrounded by the luscious grapevines which made my job much easier. We truly cannot wait for these two to have their Leoness Cellars Winery Wedding in Temecula in November 2019!! Please check out some of our favorites below from this engagement session.

Kimberly Crest House and Gardens & The Mitten Building Wedding

Wedding Photography is a one of a kind job. We have the honor of seeing our couples fall in love all over again as the say "I do." This wedding was especially dreamy. The pure elegance of this venue makes this place one of our favorite places. This beautiful couple picked the perfect place to get married. Kimberly Crest House & Gardens is a one of a kind location filled with trees that could touch the sky and enchanting architecture all in one which makes for stunning wedding photos. 

Once these two became husband and wife everyone headed to the wedding reception which took place at The Mitten Building. The Mitten Building is filled with red brick that adds warmth to the room with the added touches of the couple this venue was the perfect reception site. We are so glad we could be their Riverside wedding photographers. We wish these two nothing but the best and a long happy marriage together.

Melissa & Billy's Wedding - Wilson Creek

We LOVE when we have the privilege of photographing a wedding at Wilson Creek Winery. This wedding venue is absolutely stunning. We always have nothing but the best experience here. The staff is so helpful and organized. This wedding venue and their staff truly make being a wedding photographer a blast.

Most often then not our engaged couples have already chosen their wedding venue, before reserving our wedding photography services. Brides have been dreaming about this day for years and the grooms generally don't care all that much where the wedding is located, as long as their bride is happy. :) This lovely couple seemed to of chosen everything together. The bride and groom found the venue together, picked the flowers together, the wedding cake, the food that would be served, etc. She did find her own wedding dress along with a beautiful cover up all at Davids Bridal. This bride also had some amazing "something blue" shoes by Steve Madden. We are loving the idea of a bride’s “something blue” being her fun and funky shoes. It truly is so much fun seeing what all of our bridal couples decide to use for decorations, venue. Even the look of the wedding can vary based on the style and personalities of a couple. We are so pleased to congratulate this beautiful couple and wish them nothing but the best in all of their life adventures. Thank you for letting us be your wedding photographer.

 

 

Krystal & Josh at Pearl Beach in Laguna Beach

What a fun couple! These two were a blast to work with! When they arrived on location these two had a large duffle bag. We weren't quite sure why until Krystal smiled and said we brought a ton of outfit changes. :) We were thrilled to hear this! It makes our job so much more fun to try different styles based on clothing. This obviously made our job of being a couples' photographer easier because they are a good looking couple! But the amount of giggling, smiling, and obviously love they showed for each other really show in these photographs.

Being an Orange County wedding photographer is such a rewarding job. Not only do we have the privilege of capturing the happiest moments of a couples life (their wedding day), but we also get to capture their love before the wedding while they are engaged. Being engaged is such an amazing, exciting, stressful (just because planning a wedding is overwhelming), and of course life changing time in a couple's life. We have the joy and privilege of capturing the giggles, smiles, and cuddles of our couples before they say "I do".

When our couples reserve our services for their engagement session and wedding day, our goal is to be a support system. We are proud to say we have experience in the wedding industry and we have AMAZING vendors that we work with. We are always available whether by text, phone call, or email for any questions or concerns. We pride ourselves in going above and beyond for our brides and grooms because we love what we do. We believe our Orange County wedding photography speaks for its self.

 

Samantha & Brady Wedding

It's hard enough for two people to fall in love. When you add a child it can sometimes make things more challenging. I hold a special place in my heart for step parents. My mother and I were lucky enough to have my step dad. He helped raise me from when I was a young kid and I am so grateful to have him in my life. I realize now as an adult that it takes a special person to take someone else's child and take them in as your own, I was lucky enough to have that. So, I must admit this love story truly pulled at my heart strings. This stunning bride found the perfect man. He absolutely adores her and her precious daughter. This was the very first wedding that we actually cried at (we don't suggest taking photos while crying -lol-)! This bride and groom chose to deliver handwritten vows. OMG!!!! Let's just say there was not a dry eye in the audience. Her vows were filled with so much love, and he even added vows to her daughter. They brought the little girl up and the groom read them aloud to her, such a touching moment.

Once the mushy gushy stuff was done these three were ready for the party! They had tons of fun dancing their hearts out and of course enjoying all the fun laughs with their guests. These three are such a fabulous family and we just know they will be together forever! Thank you both for allowing us to be your Orange County wedding photographers on your wedding day, it was truly a perfect wedding and we just know you both will enjoy a lifetime of happiness. We can't wait to photograph your events in the future!
