Temecula Wedding at Villa De Amore

I’m thrilled to share some gorgeous sneak peeks from Kirsten and Amare’s Temecula wedding at Villa de Amore. Held at this beautiful winery, their celebration included the best looking bridal party, the most adorable ring bearer (their son!), and an abundance of smiles and laughter that would make anybody feel right at home.

Getting Ready

After shooting Kirsten’s gorgeous rings, I arranged her bridesmaids on a chic white sofa in the blue getting ready room. She has the prettiest bridal party and I loved their positive attitudes and excitement for photos!

After getting dressed, Kirsten had a first look with her father who deeply loves his only child and daughter so much so that he shed a few tears. These moments are sometimes so hard to photograph because you just want to stop and awe over the sweet relationships you witness as a photographer!

Meanwhile, Amare quickly got ready for the day in a sleek grey tux. He is the kind of guy that always looks so put together and ready for a photo. Amare truly has become one of my most photogenic grooms for his ability to turn on the most genuine smile in front of the lens. He makes me job so easy!

Ceremony

In front of a floral-adorned black gate, Kirsten and Amare said their vows. Their son preciously wandered around the aisle with no clue what was happening. He was just simply the cutest thing ever.

Portraits

One of the reasons I love working with Amare and Kirsten is that they are so quick to relax and show emotion in front of my camera. It takes very little effort to get genuine expressions from them. I adore that because I can then simply focus on posing and direction to perfect the images. Both of them also have such beautiful smiles that could win anybody over.

Reception

Kirsten and Amare’s al fresco reception featured green and white centerpieces, grey napkins, and clear chargers. Tables were adorned with bottles of olive oil and champagne to enjoy for the toasts from several members of the couple’s bridal party and their parents. During the toasts, Kirsten and Amare’s son wandered around the tables and provided a hilarious comic relief of unexpected laughter during Amare’s mother’s emotional toast. Nobody really knows why he started giggling during the toast, but everybody thought it was absolutely so precious and laughed so hard as a result.

After a stunning sunset, Kirsten and Amare cut their cake, danced the night away, and snuck outside for a few last romantic portraits of the night. It was truly the perfect ending to such a gorgeous wedding day.
