Collin and Miranda's Beautiful Southern CA Wedding in Temecula, CA
Junior high sweethearts...that's what they are!
10 years ago, Collin and Miranda met in junior high band class. They met before either of them could drive. These two have dated for ten years!
In high school, they were voted, "Most Likely to Get Married." (That must have been an accurate premonition because look where we are now!)
Even while attending separate colleges, these two managed this long distance relationship with ease.
In December, Collin contacted me and arranged to surprise Miranda with a proposal at the LA Arboretum. She accepted, enthusiastically, as she does most things.
The Wedding at Fazeli Winery
After months of wedding planning, Miranda and Collin were excited to get married! Miranda is known for her attention to detail and her multitude of Pinterest boards! Pinterest wedding boards flourished as she planned the perfect day. Her wedding coordinator, Annette, helped the day run so smoothly! Her mom and bridesmaids were on point and even ahead of schedule on everything!
The Wedding Details
Creamy undertones highlighted the lace on Miranda's spectacular dress. The off-white color flattered her skin tone! Her rhinestone Betsey Johnson flats provided the perfect amount of sparkle!
Miranda has always had an affinity for all things pink and I was honestly wondering if her dress would be pink!
To give the day a nod of pink, Collin and his groomsmen wore medium gray tuxedos with
blush pink tie accents.
The hair and makeup team swooped in with gorgeous natural makeup and a multitude of different hairstyles to make the bride, and all of her ladies, beautiful!
White and soft pink roses, peonies and oleander joined together for Miranda's stunning bridal bouquet. The men wore boutonnieres with single roses. The bridesmaids all carried creamy soft pink and off-white roses. This floral them was carried throughout the day at the ceremony and reception.
The Fazeli Winery
At Fazeli Winery, there were several magical little areas for photographing Collin and Miranda.
Archways and hallways had a nice clean backdrop to highlight the bride and groom. Golden hour was the perfect time to head into the vineyards! This sun peeked above the hills and then disappeared for some gorgeous glow!
Let Them Eat Cake!
The four tier wedding cake was a work of art! Cakes to Celebrate baked up a beautiful Almond Champagne cake with Raspberry and Bavarian Cream filling. They also made Limoncello cakes. At the tasting, the bride and groom could not choose their favorite, so they went with two flavors! Blush and off-white roses cascaded down over the delicately piped swirls.
Guests celebrated well into the night at Fazeli!
Elegant tables were set with homemade macarons, made by Miranda's Macarons, who, by the way, is the bride! Gold flatware, chargers and chairs gave the room a light and airy feel. Rose and hydrangea centerpieces completed the look. The DJ kept the guests moving all throughout the summer evening with his stellar grooves!
Thank you, Collin and Miranda for allowing me to capture your special day!
It has been a pleasure and honor!
