Temecula Wedding Photography

Josh + Ari

When it comes to weddings in San Diego, Temecula is always on top of the list. This is why I’m always excited to do Temecula wedding photography projects. I know that the backdrops will always be amazing. The vineyards always bring something special into wedding pictures. In the case of Josh and Ari’s wedding, they chose the beautiful Wiens Family Cellar as their official venue.

The day started out with Ari getting ready at the winery. Her wedding dress was just immaculate, with its ¾ sleeves and vintage hairpiece. It was evident that her mom and her sister were extremely supportive. They doted on her and paid close attention to every single intricate detail. 

We’ve already scouted the area for possible photo shoot locations before. We all agreed that the grapefruit field was a winner. So that’s exactly where we did the shots for their first look, and wow, the results were magical. The mood was actually very light. Josh kept cracking jokes, his personality really shone through in those shots. And Ari was just stunning! It looked like she stepped right out of a wedding magazine.

We also dropped by this barn I know in Temecula. It served as another ideal backdrop for a few shots of the couple. This barn has always proven to be a useful background for Temecula wedding photography.

The ceremony itself was held outdoors. It was short but sweet. They had a lot of Ari’s family members coming in from Mexico. From their mood the entire time, you can tell how happy they are for Ari and Josh. 

Once the ceremony was over, we slipped out and took a few shots in the winery’s barrel room. This was such a great call! These shots turned out to be my favorites.

The party was super fun! There was a lot of dancing. Knowing how funny and outgoing Josh is, it wasn’t surprising that he once again became the star of the party. He had dance moves I never imagined he can do!

What made this Temecula wedding photography gig even better is that I got the chance to see past clients. You see, I also photographed the weddings of a few of Ari’s friends in the past. It makes me so grateful that I have become part of the most special moments of this entire group.
