Matt and Christina Temecula Winery Wedding

There are so many things that I loved about Matt and Christina’s Temecula wedding.

Jake & Bev Elope During Coachella Fest

They called me because they had decided to cancel their big Fullerton wedding.  They realized that it just wasn’t “them” but they’d already spent their whole budget and they weren’t telling their family.  They were coming to town for a quick vacation and wanted to get married then.  Just them…and me…and a 15 minute ceremony.…
