A Ruby Red Wedding at Orfila Vineyards & Winery | Stephanie and Sean

By, March 26, 2013

Just five months before their big day, Stephanie and Sean booked Orfila Vineyards and Winery for their dream wedding.  Because Stephanie has a passion for wildlife, and Sean loves being active outdoors, the couple had always envisioned an outdoor wedding. Orfila was an ideal location to tie the knot, with its beautifully manicured lawns and view of the San Pasqual Valley agricultural preserve.


Sean began his romantic journey with Stephanie by proposing with a unique family ring, featuring a gorgeous Ruby center stone. Stephanie was so touched by his thoughtfulness that she decided to incorporate the ruby color of the ring into their wedding decor and attire.


To integrate his Jewish heritage, Sean was adamant about hand building the traditional chuppah that they were to be married under.

Just before sunset, on the gorgeous lawn overlooking our majestic vineyard in the San Pasqual Valley, the couple was married.


Ruby red accents were present throughout the entire event, including the flowers, the love notes written by the 120 close family and friends who attended, and the silk sash that wrapped around Stephanie’s lace wedding gown.

While guests sipped on award-winning Orfila wines, Stephanie and Sean enjoyed their first moments as husband and wife, and relaxed in our Old World Tasting Room.


Following the cocktail hour, guests gathered for a warm evening reception in our large tent. The tent was draped with market lights, setting the mood for a romantic and vivacious soiree.
