Wedding Day Details

The start of a wedding day can be hectic. Most Brides experience anxiety and stress with regards to timeline, details, and keeping everyone on track. This is a main reason why I recommend using a wedding coordinator, but that's another story. I wanted create a reminder for Bride's on the details that they should bring with them at the start of the day for me to photograph while they are getting ready. It might be helpful to designate someone to hold these details for me and have them deliver the goods after I've finished with the photos.

Items to remember for wedding day

For the Bride:

Bridal Gown with wooden hanger
All the rings - Engagement, her band, and his band
A full invitation suite of the wedding invites
Wedding flowers/bouquet
Jewelry you will be wearing
Veil

For the Groom:

Tie
Shoes
Cuff Links
Watch
Boutonniere

Keep in mind to remind me of any special details that are specific to you. For example, if you have Grandma's handkerchief wrapped around your bouquet of flowers, let me know so I can be sure it get's photographed. What's the most important detail on wedding day for you? Be sure to mention it in the comments below.
 

Temecula Winery Wedding | Lauren + Steven

A couple of weekends ago, I had the lovely opportunity to shoot a wedding with another photographer named Melissa Morelli. Her cousin Steven married his gorgeous bride Lauren at a winery in Temecula. The sun was shining, the wine was flowing, and everyone looked beautiful. 

The rings were captured on a wine barrel: I just love the rustic element showcasing the wedding bands. The wedding dress was hanging from vines at the winery. I was in love with the simplicity of the design, including the white rose boutonniere and the gold bowl holding the centerpiece bouquet.

The bridesmaid ladies were told to pick out a navy lace dress, and each of them looked absolutely gorgeous!

There was an amazing orange grove on the winery property that we were able to take some bride and groom portraits in.

I'm in love with these wedding details. The wine bottles and vases were spray painted gold and held only a few flowers. The welcome sign was a nice touch too!
