Temecula Wine Country Wedding
After photographing Sam & Alicia’s engagement session in Temecula earlier this year I was anxiously waiting for October to roll around for their wedding at Europa Village Winery. These two were smart, attractive and on board with starting out the engagement session with beers at Blackbird tavern so they were basically my ideal subjects. Fast forward to their wedding day and BOOM! The dance floor was rocking, the beers were getting crushed and everyone was having a kick ass time. The party did not disappoint at all, and every awesome wedding must involve a awesome party. Normally, I would go into more detail about the wedding day and the flow of it but I have so much work piling up that I really need to keep wedding blog posts short until I can get caught up so let me just provide some cliff notes. Sam had like 18 groomsmen. Maybe it was 16…I forget now but it was a whole butt load of dudes so I imagine the bachelor party was insane. Alicia looked amazing and her wedding dress made 9/18 groomsmen drool (that is a 50% clip and very impressive!). The speeches were touching and even as an outsider it was easy to see how important friends and family were to Sam and Alicia. After the reception, the wedding party and some guests all jumped into a party bus Sam and Alicia rented to keep the momentum going in Old Town Temecula. I can only imagine how awesome that was. Cheers to Sam and Alicia!
Side note: As a Temecula wedding photographer I have always enjoyed shooting weddings at Europa Village because the venue is easily accessible and the staff their do a incredible job. Currently, the venue is growing and adding all sorts of awesome stuff that should be ready to rock in a couple years. I know when Europa Village completes the project the entire place will be amazing (they are adding multiple wedding venues that have different themes and styles..think French and Italian vibes). Europa Village, which is already one of my personal favorite venues in Temecula wine country, is only going to be getting better…and that is pretty exciting stuff for future brides 🙂
Wedding photography coverage was 2 shooters for 7 hours. Wedding venue was Europa Village winery in Temecula, California. Oh and let me give Lianna a huge shout out for second shooting with me on short notice! I greatly appreciate your assistance helping me document Alicia and Sam’s wedding day!
