Natalie & Scott's Wedding at Villa de Amore in Temecula


temecula wine country is a great place to take a drive through, and an even better place to have a wedding. natalie and scott chose to have theirs at the beautiful Villa de Amore vineyards in temecula. what an amazing venue. if you're thinking of a place to have a wedding, or any big event for that matter, i highly recommend giving the villa de amore a look. Jenny B floral design did an incredible job with all the arrangements and really made the villa come alive with color.
Kendra from Prima Events kept everything organized and on schedule. her website says they have "an exhaustive commitment to exceeding our clients’ expectations." she's not kidding. when the venue ran out of brew, she drove down herself and picked up some more. no thirst will go unquenched. not on kendra's watch.
i really enjoyed everything about this wedding. natalie and scott, i wish you all the best life has to offer. you made this day extra special with your kindness. thank you both, and thanks to drew too! it was so nice working with you again.







natalie's uniform of the day was princess-like, but no glass slippers could match these sweet pink shoes.







natalie was such a gorgeous bride.







simply stunning.







i love this. there's a whole wall of rustic crosses at the villa, and this is my favorite.







the california sun was bright that day my friends.




scott was grinning ear to ear when he saw his beautiful bride walking down the aisle toward him.
















the light was amazing out there...




and it only got better as time ticked by.










mystical floating cake. how does he doooo it? (said in mysterious voice)




like i said, nobody went thirsty.




i think the bouquet toss may have been rigged. can you guess who the crowd favorite was?




hmmmm...










congratulations to the lucky bride-to-be.
