Hi, I'm kelly


the wedding planning checklist

Everything you need to know from the minute you get engaged to after you say I do!



This Galway Downs Wedding is one for the books. Would you believe me if I told you that it was supposed to pour on this day? It rained all morning, but right before the ceremony the clouds cleared and the sun shined down. Cody & Kaylee had decided to move everything indoors just in case. Normally a couple would be sad about changing their wedding, but not these two. These two went with the flow and honestly it could not have been any more gorgeous indoors! Kaylee and Cody had smiles on their faces the whole day! So thankful that Brogen Jessup brought me on as her second photographer.


Galway Downs has an earthy, sultry, and elegant taste. Located in Temecula Wine Country, this venue will amaze you with its stunning blend of lush green meadows, modern amenities, and a dressing suite you’ll want to sign a lease on. The reception space is rustic-yet-sleek,  featuring a stately built-in bar, a two-way fireplace, and generous room for dancing. Sounds like a place a for you? Well check out this wedding!

There is nothing like a champagne pop to get the PARTAY started! Kaylee had so much fun with her bridesmaids while getting ready! They stepped outside as the rain passed and popped some champagne in celebration of the clear skies and the marriage to come! Also how cute are their matching bridesmaids pajamas! Kaylee even gave a pair to her mom. Can’t have mom miss out on all the fun!

One thing I love about this Galway Downs wedding is that they utilized every space of this venue. Kaylee and Cody shared their first look in front of the palm trees and mountains. It could not have been more breathtaking. Then during their sunset portraits they moved to different paths and hidden trails. You can see those portraits below!

Their ceremony was so beautiful. A violinist played as guests took their seats. Rose petals also lined the aisle.

About half way through sunset photos Kaylee said screw it and took out her hair! She was ready to shake it up and feel wild and free. Now that is what I’m talking about! This girl was ready to let loose, have some fun, and enjoy her party!
