Under the Bell tower at South Coast Winery in Temecula, Heather and Shawn were sharing their first dance as a married couple. The evening light was just right for some great wedding photography in Temecula and all eyes were on them. Thats when I heard “GET ER DONE!”. Nope it wasn’t Larry the Cable Guy, it was Grandpa! Everyone chuckled a little and I think I heard Heather call him a red neck! This wedding was a little bit country. Heather and Shawn and their family and friends created a warm atmosphere and it was a real joy to photograph their wedding day.
Heather was as sweet as an angel and looked like one too in that amazing dress. We got a couple backlight photos overlooking the gardens by her bridal suite that turned out amazing! Shawn was also looking dapper in that tux and really rocked the show when it came to photos with the guys!
The ceremony was really special. The way South Coast has their courtyard wedding laid out you feel like royalty. Because of the staircase that elevates the bride and groom, everyone can see them, even those in the back row. And then there is the second level that surrounds one side which gave a really cool vantage point for some of the wedding photos. It added a whole new dimension of angles for photos, which turned out really cool.
One of my favorite things about this wedding was the desert! No not the cake, though that was good too, but the milk and cookies! Ive never seen that before, but I thought it was a great idea. In fact, I think all the guests at the wedding thought it was!
Enough commentary from the photographer, its time for the main event, the photos!
