There are so many things that I loved about Matt and Christina’s Temecula wedding.
First, that they completely changed their original plans from having a desert resort wedding to an intimate winery wedding. They found a smaller winery called Bel Vino with incredible views and top notch service. Seriously, their wedding day coordinator was one of the best that I’ve worked with.
Second, they decided to share their wedding vows privately before the ceremony. I’ve never seen that done and now think that everyone should do it. It was really emotional and really beautiful. I think I may have cried more for their vows than I have at other weddings and I couldn’t even hear them. #sappyphotographer
And lastly, the location was incredible. Bel Vino has a huge house that you get ready in with two complete master suites, a full kitchen and living room and dining area. It would be amazing for a tiny wedding where everyone could sit around the dining table and drink bottles of wine. The large grass area perches perfectly above the vineyard and with the amazing floral stylings of Sarah Ashworth Designs, their understated elegance theme had the perfect setting to shine.
Enough chatter, let’s get on to the pictures!
Did I mention that her aunt was the officiant? She brought such a beautiful history of the couple to the ceremony. She was an absolute joy!
Seriously, Sarah Ashworth Designs made the most incredible floral arrangements!!
What a pleasure to work with this couple. Matt and Christina – I wish you the absolute best in life!!
