Chad & Amanda’s Temecula Wedding At Mount Palomar Winery
Connecting with people bursting with positive energy, ready to have a kick-ass time, is one of my joys. When Amanda emailed about photographing her Mount Palomar wedding in Temecula, California, I couldn’t contain my excitement. Amanda and her soon-to-be husband, Chad, were wine enthusiasts, beach-lovers, and travelers. This zest for adventure brought Amanda from Florida to California, leading to her serendipitous meeting with Chad in San Diego.
Chad was singing Karaoke in a local San Diego dive bar when Amanda first noticed him. He was belting out ‘Highway to the Danger Zone’ from Top Gun, shirtless. Chad, loving Tuesday night karaoke and the Top Gun soundtrack, wasn’t afraid to let loose. It was this unapologetic, carefree spirit that drew Amanda in. The rest, as they say, is history. They embarked on sushi dates, traveled continents, swam with sharks, and even partook in pie-eating contests. This adventure-filled journey led to their wedding at Mount Palomar Winery in Temecula, California. Below, are some of the images from their Mt. Palomar Winery wedding. Cheers!
