Nikki + Matt | Wilson Creek Winery Wedding in Temecula, California

May 27, 2017


I first met Nikki & Matt at a coffee shop in Little Italy, San Diego. I instantly loved this couple and since meeting, have gotten the pleasure of having these two in front of my camera three different times! One of those times, we even had a special guest appearance by their adorable pup, Riah. I am such a puppy lover, so this shoot was especially fun for me! Their engagement session took place in Little Italy as well and I absolutely loved how they incorporated their love story! We took photos at San Diego Cellars, which was where they had their very first date. Although we were all tempted to finish the shoot indulging in delicious wine, we headed to Coronado to finish their engagement photos with a breath-taking sunset on the beach.

Nikki told me all about her plans for the wedding, including fun details and color schemes. I was excited to see it all come together and their wedding day was nothing short of spectacular! The entire bridal party got ready at the Wilson Creek Manor, which has tons of natural light (which of course, all photographers dream of), plenty of space for everyone to spread out and relax, and best of all – a stunning, elegant bridal suite for the ladies! We got to capture this beautiful wedding day with the talented Jason and Mary from At Last Wedding Films. These guys are the best in the business (we even hired them on our wedding day)!!  We all kept commenting on what a gorgeous wedding Nikki & Matt had – perfect weather, amazingly sweet couple and friends & family who surrounded them with love and laughter all day long.

The newlyweds are enjoying their honeymoon in Peru then heading to Costa Rica! How amazing!! <3 I hope you love birds have a fabulous time and enjoy some wedding favorites while you’re on your trip. Can’t wait to hear all about it!!

Thank you to all the wonderful vendors who made this day a success!
