Wedding photos at Lorimar Vineyards And Winery:

I first heard from Phoebe and Drew about a year ago when they inquired about my photography services. They were both living out in New York, but planning a wedding celebration in Temecula wine country, about an hour and a half from where we’re based out of in Los Angeles.

Phoebe sent me a wonderful email explaining how they met and got engaged, and we had a few Skype sessions to discuss their upcoming wedding plans. Their openness towards me was really welcoming and I was excited to capture their wedding at Lorimar Vineyards And Winery.

Getting ready photos at the Lorimar Vineyards And Winery:

My wife Charlene was my second photographer for the day and we headed down early in the morning to Temecula. Phoebe’s family is from Arizona while Drew’s is from San Diego, so there were lots of people from out of town congregating for the event. While I captured Phoebe and her bridesmaids making their final preparations, Charlene was with Drew and his groomsmen in the Lorimar Vineyards And Winery’s barrel room. There were lots of warm moments to capture and gift exchanges within the bridal suite, as well as a fun shot as the boys chowed down on In-and-Out Burgers!

Pre-ceremony portraits at the Lorimar Vineyards And Winery:

Phoebe and Drew had decided on a first look session and we found a shaded, leafy walkway to stage it. Phoebe was tearing up even before she walked towards Drew and it really was a wonderful and emotional moment to photograph. After the couple had admired each other and wiped away tears, I used the opportunity for a short Lorimar Vineyards And Winery wedding photo session within the landscaped grounds.

Ceremony photos at the Lorimar Vineyards And Winery:

It was then time for the wedding ceremony itself, with Phoebe’s parents walking her down the aisle to a glowing Drew at the Lorimar Vineyards And Winery’s outdoor ceremonial site. It was a fairly intimate but beautiful ceremony, with just Phoebe and Drew’s closest family and friends watching on. The couple exchanged vows beneath a picture-perfect blue sky, with fantastic views out across the Temecula wine country.

Reception photos at the Lorimar Vineyards And Winery:

The couple couldn’t contain their joy after being officially pronounced “husband and wife” and literally skipped and danced into their wedding reception during the grand entrance. The reception was also held outdoors, right next to the ceremonial site, with an intimate first dance followed by an emotional speech by Phoebe’s dad and Drew’s mom.

With the light becoming really magical as it approached sunset, I grabbed the couple for a portrait session. I captured loving exchanges and warm embraces as they wandered hand-in-hand through the Temecula vineyards, with the golden sun illuminating them beautifully and creating a really whimsical ambiance.

We returned to the wedding reception for a toast from the bridesmaids, followed by the mother-son and father-daughter dances. Phoebe and Drew made a “thank you” speech to their guests and we grabbed a quick group photo, before everyone hit the dance floor to party well into the night. Phoebe and Drew had a live band for their Lorimar Vineyards And Winery wedding reception and everyone really let loose (including Drew who crowd surfed off the stage!).
