adrienne + ryan – wiens family cellars temecula [Real Wedding]

I received an email from Adrienne’s best friend and maid of honor, as she is in the special event industry and was helping Adrienne and Ryan plan from afar (they live in Las Vegas) – and said that she was happy to see that I was on the vendor list at Wiens Family Cellars in Temecula (I love that venue!) and have me as an option, since she knew me from various wedding industry events and loved my approach.  Yay!  Her initial email said that the couple were both raised Catholic and wanted to include …

stacy + justin – milagro winery ramona [Real Wedding]

I received an inquiry through my website about six weeks before their date, and they let me know that it would be an elopement with just their three daughters, and at one of my favorite venues, Milagro Winery in Ramona.  Since I already had a wedding booked for later that afternoon, I first had to see what time they were thinking – with enough time in between, I can definitely do a second wedding in a day, but I won’t say yes without lots of cushion.  Thankfully, they were thinking midday/early afternoon in order to …

Brooke + Stanley – Secluded Garden Estate Pala [Real Wedding]

I have three different couples to thank for Brooke and Stanley!  Yes, three different of my past couples sent them my way, which told me before I even met them that I would really like them – like attracts like, right?  And I loved that Brooke told me that they had already read my reviews, as I think that they say so much of what it’s like to work together. The three of us got together very shortly after to talk about what they wanted and didn’t want from their ceremony at the beautiful Secluded …

Celeste and Austin – Mt. Woodson Castle [Real Wedding]

I received an inquiry through my website for a wedding at Mt. Woodson Castle in Ramona, and I was glad to hear that the venue had sent them my way, as I know that the team at Personal Touch Dining who run the castle totally know who my favorite couples are! The three of us met virtually via Zoom soon after to talk about what they wanted and didn’t want from their ceremony, and then we walked through my process and how I work. They told me that they wanted to share their love for …

Sarah and Hunter – San Diego Zoo Safari Park [Real Wedding]

I received an inquiry through my website and was psyched to see that they came my way not only because I was on the recommended list at their venue (one of my favorite venues, the San Diego Zoo Safari Park), but also because I was highly recommended by their wedding coordinator, Laura of Serendipity Events.  And, it was clear that we were on the same page, as they definitely wanted a ceremony like I described, they said – one that was fun, personal, meaningful, and non-traditional, emphasis on the non-traditional, they mentioned.  Count me in! …
