Mt. Palomar Winery
When I first started speaking with Nicole about her Temecula wedding in wine country at Mount Palomar to her fiancee Mark I knew it was going to be one kick ass time. This was because the soon-to-be bride didn’t want some stuffy, boring wedding where people sipped on wine while discussing politics. Nope. Not a freaking chance. Fuck all that. Nicole loved the relaxed and elegant scenery of Temecula wine c0untry, but she wanted her wedding to be one big party. We are talking about a wedding where everyone is dancing (even the old people), champagne is being consumed at levels that would be considered moderately dangerous, and Beyoncé is blasting into the summer night sky. My normal response to photographing such a wedding would be, “Hell freaking yes!”, but I think Nicole would prefer something more along the lines of “YAAAAASSSSSSS QUEEN!”. Honestly, Mark and Nicole were completely amazing and their wedding had such good energy. Part of this was certainly due to a crew of rad friends the bride and groom had that all knew how to get down, get up and get back down again. Below is a sneak peak at some of the good times that went down at Mark and Nicole’s wedding at Mount Palomar Winery in Temecula!
My Favorite Moment From Mount Palomar Winery
This is usually the part of the blog where I write about one of my favorite moments from a wedding, and there were a ton of rad moments from Mark and Nicole’s Mount Palomar wedding. However, my favorite part of the wedding was actually getting done earlier than normal so I was able to get home and spend some time with my wife. Normally, when I am done shooting a wedding I come home to a dark house with everyone sleeping. It kind of sucks. But this time I got home in time to hang out with my other half. We drank some champagne and made sweet love before watching reruns of the Office. I probably gave you way more information then you wanted but I don’t care. This is my place and I can write whatever I like. And I think you would be pretty happy if you got home from work early as well so you had more time to paint nude Latin men, drink wine coolers or whatever the hell it is you do on your free time.
THANK YOU Nicole and Mark for allowing me to photograph you both in all your glory at Mount Palomar! Even though the temperature was near 100 in Temecula you both kept the good vibes and energy going all night long. So cheers to both of you for being incredible humans!
