Beautiful Music Together | Hanah and Wesley

By, June 22, 2017

Hanah and Wesley are both violinists, and first crossed paths while auditioning for the same section position at the San Diego Symphony. The pair instantly connected through their passion for music, and spent hours listening to each other play. They soon fell in love, and shortly after, Wes was awarded the symphony position. Then, on Wes’s birthday, Hanah won a coveted position with the Utah Symphony, which resulted in a 3-year long distance relationship.

After many attempts to relocate Hanah back to San Diego, the couple became engaged. Also around this time, Hanah was invited to join the San Diego Symphony! It was as if the whole universe conspired to make everything possible :)

These two recently tied the knot at a gorgeous private residence, tucked into the quiet hills of Temecula, California. The classic and breathtaking estate was adorned in marble and gold, with a unique collection of art and décor from around the world. We were thrilled to capture this beautiful wedding day for such a well-matched and talented couple. Here is a selection of our favorite moments throughout their classic Temecula wedding!

Dance, Dance, Dance!

By, June 15, 2017

It’s been a while since we let loose and did the macarena. We can’t even remember the last time we played that funky music until we died. So today’s post is all about dancing! At a wedding reception, the dance floor is the right time to take your shoes off, let your hair down, and show off your best moves. No matter how young or how old, everyone can bounce along to the beat, and have a great time! Enjoy this fun collection of dance photos from recent wedding receptions.

At LauraAnne and Neema's wedding reception, the bridal party put on an elaborate Persian dance for the groom and guests!
The wedding party could not be missed during this loud reception.
Sometimes, it's the youngest guests who steal the spotlight, with moves well beyond their years.
This kid has some moves!
Parents love to shake it up too! You won't have to look far to find the proud parents of the newlyweds enjoying themselves with the rest of the crowd.
And who knows, maybe after a few drinks, you'll discover some moves you never knew you had!
After a night of partying, it's your time to shine!

The beat goes on! Check out more reception wedding dance photos


Orfila Vineyard Wedding | Brittany and Matt

By, June 13, 2017

Sitting on a picturesque hillside in the San Pasqual Valley lies Orfila Vineyard where Brittany and Matt held their classic outdoor vineyard wedding. Located on 70 acres of property, the vineyard offers timeless rustic features in addition to the boundless fields of trellised grapes.  We had fun using the vintage cellar rooms in contrast to the natural foliage outside to create a diversity of looks with a minimal amount of space.

The photos below capture the elegant, romantic spirit of Brittany and Matt’s special day. Here is a selection of our favorites!

In addition to stylized portraits, we love capturing candids throughout the day. For example, as Matt recited his vows during the ceremony (above), Brittany pulled out a tissue to dry her tears. It's small moments like these that can hold big emotion!

While the venue's exterior offered a classic vineyard look, with lots of natural foliage, the metal tanks in the cellar provided a clean, modern aesthetic. Playing with the two opposing styles created a fun juxtaposition!
