Shades of Gray
Whether you thought the movie by the same name was controversial or you loved it; you can’t deny the sophistication of the beautiful shades of gray in these bridesmaids dresses this past October when Kelly and Matt were married at The Temecula Creek Inn, Temecula Ca.
Couples doing a reveal or fist look tell me all the time how happy they were that they listened to sage advice (usually my powers of persuasion and the photographers gentle nudging ha-ha) and took a few moments to escape before the ceremony and all the hoopla began to spend quality time alone together before hosting a lavish event such as a wedding can be.

Heather's Heart Aflutter
Our recent bride and groom Heather and Terry sent all of our hearts aflutter with their adoring gazes and their charming dispositions. Throughout the entire planning, they were happy and lighthearted and so sweet to each other. The Temecula Creek Inn lends itself to being any style and theme a girl could want from elegant and dazzling to intimate and rustic.
Heather chose to use the colorful bursts of nature to inspire her. The organic ceremony site and modern simple centerpieces provided and designed by Soiree Designs and Events were perfect for this space.
It is said that in the search for love; one may have to kiss a lot of frogs before discovering “the one”. In the case of Joanne and Joel, married this past August in Temecula wine country this couple found their bliss in each other's kindness right away. The bride Joanne was a pleasure to work with from the start, as lovely inside as she is beautiful on the outside. And after meeting Joel I understood instantly why she fell for him.
The wedding was planned to include a colorful yet vintage winery look set around the backdrop Vitagliano Vineyards @ Lake Oak Meadows gorgeous grounds on the lake of fire and water
Temecula Creek Vows
Perfect shades of pastels like these pinks and peaches and a perfectly lovely bride are what made this wedding so beautiful!
Those soft summer months beg for soft pretty pastels and lots of wood elements from nature offsetting the absolute charm of The Temecula Creek Inn. Photographer Ray Kang captured the absolute love story here flawlessly.
I loved the image of the Vows sign because the ceremony was so special and heartfelt. It provided the “just right mood” for a summer love wedding and reception.
The story of Jovan and Bret, married last year at Vitagliano Vineyards @ Lake Oak Meadows begins and ends with their endearing love. This couple were charming from start to finish and as kindhearted as they are beautiful. We had so much fun planning details of this engaging wine themed wedding. Some of my personal favorite colors of fall were incorporated into the rich lustrous dresses of Pantone’s color of the year 2016 Marsala Wine. This is a great year round color for winery weddings because all skin tones look lovely in this color and the deep hues are bursting with warmth. Jovan and Bret also paired the Marsala tones ...
My heart “skipped” a beat…you’ll see why.
This wedding was charming, timeless & full of romance! It took place at Temecula Creek Inn at the Meadows. To start Megan & Kyle’s ceremony was performed by Tom Garza, Megan’s Godfather and a long time family friend which always makes it extra special. They also chose to incorporate a wine box activity that family members could be a part of by contributing some symbolic items into their wine box to give the newlyweds some meaningful advice to weave into their marriage. I can’t think of a more beautiful way to begin their family story!
Everything about their wedding was a family affair, from their playlist, to décor, to the romantic elegant handmade bouquet.

Our adorable young couple enjoyed a perfect fall day at Lake Hemet's new Wildflower wedding location, one of three new wedding venues in the Inland Empire, San Bernardino, San Jacinto Mountains. Wildflower weddings offer weddings and receptions at Lake Hemet, Lake Gregory and the St. Moritz Lodge.
Here for this event we were inspired by a vintage trailer used for the bridal suite which fit perfectly with our “Boho” themed wedding and reception.
The “First look” or Reveal is without a doubt one of the most touching parts of the bride and grooms wedding day experience. If your photographer or coordinator is trying to talk you in to doing this before your wedding, listen to them! As evidenced by Lisa and John’s images here, beautifully captured by Bryan Miller Photography, the emotion is real, and it is heartfelt. The benefits of the reveal are many, it is private, it is emotional, it allows the couple to be in the moment, and often it saves precious time at the reception allowing the couple to join in on the fun and shorten their post ceremony photography.
