True Besties… {Caitlin + Joe, Wiens Family Cellars, Temecula Wedding Photographer}

Caitlin and Joe got married over at Wiens Family Cellars in Temecula Wine Country.  Their day was filled with love, laughter and a lot of fun.  We loved getting to know Caitlin and Joe over the last few months and the thing that we will always remember about them is how they truly are best friends.  The two of them met in High School over 10 years ago and remained friends ever since.  They dated other people but then when they were both single, Joe asked Caitlin out on a date (to DISNEYLAND) and they have have been together ever since.  We can totally see the years of friendship rooted deeply in their relationship and are so excited for their future together.

Something’s Missing… {Kari + Derik, Wilson Creek Winery, Temecula Wedding Photographer}

Kari and Derik’s wedding day was absolutely beautiful!!  From their gorgeous outdoor ceremony overlooking the vineyards to the bridal party decor to her tablescapes. Everything was complete and nothing was missing unlike the day Derik proposed to Kari- where something was definitely missing.  Kari relates the story to us,

He asked me to pick him up after work at a friends house down in Sacramento. When I pulled up he was waiting outside with both of our suitcases packed. He told me we were going to get away for the night to celebrate our anniversary. After a few mysterious turns we ended up at a boutique hotel in Sacramento with views of the capitol called The Citizen. This was the first hotel we stayed at together when we were visiting our new city. He had a date night planned with me- beginning with shopping for a new outfit for dinner that night. He had done an excellent job packing my suitcase. We walked to a local mall, I bought a complete new outfit, we grabbed some drinks at happy hour and then headed back to the hotel to get ready for our dinner reservations at a fancy and delicious place specializing in Farm to Fork food called The Grange. Just as I finished getting ready, he looked at me and said, “You look beautiful, but somethings missing…” Next thing I knew he was down on his knees pulling out a beautiful ring.

We had never been to The Mitten Building so it was so much fun to shoot there for the first time. According their website, The Mitten Building was built in 1890 as the Haight Citrus Packing House. Next, it became Mitten Letter Factory from approx. 1940 – 1980. The building was empty for many years until it was restored by the current owners who appreciated it’s historical significance and started hosting events in 2000.

The Mitten Building had three floors for the reception.  The main floor was where all the guest tables were and where dinner was served.  The lower level had the bar area and the top floor was where all the dancing and festivities were.

Absolutely Perfect… {Kaisha + Nathan, Callaway Winery, Temecula Wedding Photographer}

Kaisha and Nathan had such an elegant wedding over at Callway Winery in Temecula, CA. We loved that they chose to use The Studio by Leah Marie to capture their wedding day.  All of the details of their day were absolutely perfect!! From the beautiful white roses, to the gorgeous ceremony site with the rolling vineyards in the background, to the intimate barrel room reception.

Their unique ceremony site was our favorite part of their entire day!!  Not only did it over look the beautiful Callway Vineyards but with the seating set in a circle it made the entire ceremony feel more intimate and romantic.
