Mount Palomar Winery Wedding
This past weekend we photographed a gorgeous outdoor winery wedding in Temecula. Mount Palomar Winery is one of our favorite wineries in Temecula. The whole layout of the place and how everything has been decorated will make your jaws drop. We love that there's only one Mount Palomar winery wedding per day. That means there are no random strangers trying to attend your wedding. Also, the upstairs section where the ceremony and reception were held was secluded from winery guests trying to photobomb. It feels like you have the place to yourself!
Chelsea and Brandon had a first look before the ceremony. This also gave us the flexibility to get all of the photographs out of the way before guests arrived. They planned it so strategically that we even got the family photos out of the way before the ceremony. That meant that Chelsea and Brandon got to enjoy cocktail hour with their guests, We believe it's important to enjoy your cocktail hour because you get the opportunity to speak with all of your guests before the true party starts.
Oh! We also have to mention that during their ceremony, there was a wine ritual conducted. Basically, Chelsea's and Brandon's mom poured wine from separate glasses into one. To complete the unity, Chelsea and Brandon had to drink from one wine glass. Delicious wine during a ceremony, yes please! That was so awesome! We think that should be an option at every wedding.
The outdoor reception space was to die for. With the combination of a wine themed decor, killer views from the hill and a golden sunset, it was a perfect evening. Chelsea and Brandon got creative with the sweets table. They had a small white wedding cake on the top and then two tiers of fresh, homemade, mouthwatering cake pops. The market lights came on, the dance floor was filled, and we felt all of the love for Chelsea and Brandon that evening.
