Danica and Michael truly had a blast at their Temecula winery wedding at Villa de Amore. This wedding exceeded all expectations!
Danica got ready at Ponte Inn with all her bridesmaids and Sandra Michelle Artistry, one of the top Temecula hair and makeup teams, did their hair and makeup. Before heading to Villa de Amore we ran to the front of the hotel and did a champagne pop!
Villa de Amore’s bridal suite has to be one of my favorites. It is so beautiful and always so fun to photograph my brides getting ready in there.
Danica and her dad did a first look. I always recommend doing this because it always makes for the best photos!
Michael was so excited to see Danica and it made the first look that much better.
Danica and Michael also privately read their vows to one another before the ceremony. It was emotional, intimate and so beautiful to hear them express their love to one another.
Before the ceremony started Danica sat with two of her bridesmaids and chatted about her excitement. I loved being able to capture that moment.
And then the ceremony started.
Danica and Michael’s families were so fun to photograph. They were the sweetest and made the photos fun!
After family photos we did a few husband and wife photos as their guests enjoyed cocktail hour.
The reception at Villa de Amore took place outside and it was beautiful. The space felt intimate and grand at the same time.
We snuck away for a few sunset portraits in the vineyards and the light was just so amazing.
Right before we hit the dance floor we snuck out for a few photos under the twinkle lights.
One of my favorite things about Danica and Michael’s reception was their orange sunglasses. They brought a pair out and whoever was wearing them had to dance. This really got the party started and the security guard even joined in.
Danica and Michael’s day was filled with so much love, joy and was just so dam fun! Totally down to relive it all over again!
