If you are searching for a Temecula wedding photographer, we are in the Southern California area quite often. The thing we love most about this area is that you can almost always expect to have a beautiful sunny day with perfect temperatures for an outdoor wedding. There are lots of venues to choose from, especially barns and vineyards in Temecula. Tucalota Creek Ranch has a very rustic feel in particular, which we love. They have unique touches to their property such as willow trees brushing across the entrance as you walk through the property and horse stables in close distance. If you like a more country feel with open land, this is definitely a location to check out.
Kelsey and Parker did an engagement session with us last year on the beach in northern San Diego. When we met them for the first time, they had so much positive energy, so we were extra pumped about photographing their wedding day. It is always the best feeling when your couples trust you completely and give you your own creative freedom to do your thing. They decided to do a two part wedding. By that, I mean they split their celebration up into two different days.
On Friday afternoon, they had a small and intimate ceremony at Saint John Vianney Chapel church on Balboa Island in Newport Beach. This was really important to Kelsey because her mom and dad got married in the exact same church many years ago. The location held a lot of sentimental value to her family. After the ceremony that afternoon, we walked next door to grab some Dad’s frozen bananas. Parker let us know that they are the best in the area, so I got one for myself. Of course, I can now contest that this is a true statement.
Saturday was the larger wedding celebration of the two days. Kelsey planned everything so well and her romantic boho dream day really came to life. In addition, the alter at the ceremony was full with fluffy pampas grass, her dog was in a cute little bow tie, and all of her bridesmaids wore beautiful rust color dresses to match her stunning auburn hair color. My favorite part of the day was when we took photos of them and their little cockapoo. He was so excited and energetic in front of the camera, so photos turned out super candid and adorable.
Finding vendors like a Temecula wedding photographer, a florist, and a venue can be quite overwhelming when planning a wedding. Kelsey did a flawless job at picking vendors that really understood her vision. Everyone worked well together to bring her boho dream wedding to life. We hope to be back at Tucalota Creek Ranch again in the future.
