A Winery Wedding + Summer Rain | Temecula

Are you looking for a charming winery wedding full of love, laughter, and one-of-a-kind memories?

From the romantic ambiance of the vineyard to the playful impishness of Mother Nature, this winery wedding had all the ingredients of a picture-perfect day.

Rain on Our Parade? Not at This Winery Wedding!

The weather decided to join in on the wedding fun by surprising the couple with some showers during their First Look. But instead of fretting about the weather, this couple embraced it, making the most of the playful dance of the raindrops. This moment captured their joyful love, and it was a highlight of the day.

Rain or Shine, Love Shines Bright

Despite the weather, they decided to proceed with their outdoor ceremony, saying their vows among the raindrops, flowers, and vines. The foliage might have gotten damp, but Stephanie and Dustin’s spirits shone brightly. Just as they sealed the deal with a kiss, the sun burst through the clouds, illuminating the magic moment.

Keeping The Party Going

The reception was full of non-stop smiles, laughter, and dance moves that could make anyone bust a move. The Shoe Game provided the ultimate entertainment, with Stephanie and Dustin showing us how to keep the party going as they played the classic game that always brings down the house.

During their first dance, Dustin twirled his bride to her heart’s content, with love lifting them off their feet quite literally. Later in the evening, Dustin’s groomsmen, ever the life of the party, added their own spin on things, lifting the new husband high in the air in celebration. Just before the evening’s end, we rushed out to the winery’s vineyard to steal a final portrait of the couple embracing under the stormy clouds and the moon.

This winery wedding is a perfect reminder that even if things don’t go according to plan, an amazing day can still happen. It’s a day full of unexpected moments that remind everyone of the magic of true love and a celebration that uniquely reflects a couple’s journey together.
