Wilson Creek Winery has long been one of the premier wineries in the Temecula Valley and a awesome destination from brides and grooms when searching for that perfect place to have their ceremony. What an absolutely perfect wedding day it was. We started the day out early at the Wilson Creek Manor. It’s a nine-room elegant Tuscan style villa, just across the street from the winery. After a few getting ready photos at the manor when then moved across the street to the winery for the first look. The ceremony took place in a beautiful grove there on the property. After the ceremony we spent almost an hour at shooting family and formals and I couldn’t have asked for better afternoon light.  Dinner was followed by lots of dancing, toasts by close friends, family and more dancing. At the end of the night, everyone lined up for a final sparkles salute, as Jessica and Brian wrapped up a wonderful wedding day.

A couple months ago I photographed Brianna and Dustin’s in the beautiful wine country of Temecula and today I would like to share with you few of my favorite pictures from their shoot. Temecula is an incredible place for wedding and engagement photography – old town charm architecture sprinkled with dozens of the finest wineries and surrounded by a lush wilderness. They’re having their wedding later this year in Cabo San Lucas so you should see a wonderful contrast in images.

Kristin and Eric were married at one of Southern California’s hidden gems. Whispering Oaks in Temecula, California is an out of the way treasure that’s filled with tons of rustic charm. There are multiple areas for your use, including an awesome barn that we used later on for a cool nighttime shot. This place is easily one of the best kept secrets in Temecula. With an awesome rustic venue like this it only makes sense to have an award winning barbecue restaurant cater the event.  Later on that evening Kristin, Eric and their guests enjoyed the reception seated under the large sycamore trees and dancing into the night.

“Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head” was a hit back in the seventies, but rain is something that doesn’t quite mix well for weddings. Southern California was recently hit with some of the most inclement weather in years and this day was no exception. Fortunately, the beautiful venue of Wiens Family Cellars has an awesome barrel room that made for a perfect plan B for the ceremony. After Adrienne and Eric said their vows the guests made their way to the beautiful ballroom for the reception. While the guests enjoyed an array of the vineyard’s finest wines, we did a twist on the formal shots by incorporating colorful umbrellas. I guess sometimes rain can work to your advantage.
