The countryside surrounding Temecula has long been well known as San Diego County's "wine country," and, like most wine producing regions of the world, its natural beauty is hard to surpass, with rolling green hills stretching on for miles and clear, bright blue skies giving the area an inherent sense of peace. Nestled among the vines, up on a hill overlooking the valley, is Falkner Winery, the charming venue where our next featured wedding took place. Sweet, spunky Bess and her handsome groom Braedon chose Falkner as the place where they would become husband and wife, and really incorporated the essence of wine country into their big day, from getting ready at a gorgeous estate nearby with its own very own vines, to their DIY wine bottle table toppers, cork name card holders, and wine bottle stopper favors, and of course, their gorgeous ceremony site which overlooks Falkner's expansive vineyards.

Home base for wedding day prep was this incredible Temecula estate with amazing sweeping views of the surrounding mountains, sparkling pool, and its very own vineyard. We'll move right in, thanks!

Bess's shoes were the perfect mix of cuteness and comfort, perfect for both traipsing through grapevines and dancing all night long!

Bess is so funny and cute! We loved seeing her react to her bridal makeup and hair look with such joy.

With a little help from her sister and her mom, Bess is ready to walk down the aisle in her beautiful gown from 2000 Dreams Bridal and Dress Shop. She ties everything together perfectly with a lovely lavender and light blue bouquet from MFG Floral Designs

More purple and blue florals continued the theme in the reception area, and the wine bottle table toppers made for a cute DIY touch, and we absolutely love the personalized wine bottle stopper as a favor idea! Also, the cork name card holders are fun and functional, not to mention cost-effective!

A gorgeous cake with adorned with lavender and orchid accents was centrally displayed in the ballroom, serving as both a decoration and a dessert.

Their choreographed first dance kicked off the party to thunderous applause and tears of joy, and guests loved the couple's lifts and spins they rehearsed and performed perfectly for this amazing moment.

We ended the night with some portraits of the new husband and wife in Falkner's barrel room, for the authentic winery wedding look, and then headed back to the ceremony site for a romantic backlit shot that we absolutely love. These shots were a perfect way to cap off the day, incorporating this fun, feisty couple's love for wine and each other.  We're so honored to have been a part of their amazing wedding!
