Bright January Wedding at Galway Downs


Sam and Loui say I do at Temecula Wedgewood’s Galway Downs

Picture it, January 19th, and you’re getting married in the beautiful Temecula valley. You’re expecting a chilly breeze, rather you have the most beautiful sunny day in the middle of January.

When we arrived, Rosie and I stopped to see the groomsmen and introduce ourselves. From there we walked to the bridal suite greet the ladies and begin photographing the dress and details. Once we tag teamed that, Rosie went to hang with the guys and captured their getting ready photos along with some portraits.

Sam and Loui had a first look prior to the ceremony followed by family/bridal party photos. We finished with plenty of time to spare for the bride and groom to simply hang out with their wedding party and freshen up for the ceremony.

The Ceremony took place in the iconic Galway Down’s wedding lawn with a gigantic sprawling eucalyptus tree amongst the large lagoon. After the ceremony, Sam and Loui wanted to enjoy their cocktail hour so we spent about 20 mins on photos and got them to the party with time to enjoy with friends and family. Having the first look and family photos prior to the ceremony relieved a lot of stress. I always recommend to my couples that a first look followed by family photos is the best way to go.

The reception was beautifully done by the venue and the food was delicious. The bride and groom requested some photos outside and up on the bar. Made for some great moments. The 360 photobooth was a huge hit! Check out the gallery below.
