We have a special treat for you today! Not only do we have photos to share from a gorgeous Temecula vineyard wedding, but the bride Lindsay gave us a behind-the-scenes glimpse at her wedding day and story of their expat romance.
“Jake and I met in Barcelona, Spain in October 2009. I was living abroad, teaching English and he took a trip to visit a friend. As fate would have it, we met and hit if off instantly after a few hours of conversation (and karaoke.) After that night we decided to keep in touch. A few months later Jake surprised me by returning to Barcelona! It was then that we knew our relationship was bit more serious than friends. From that day on we have been together. I moved to San Diego when I returned from Spain so that I could be close to him.
Fast forward six years from when we first met, October 16, 2015, to the best day of our lives – our wedding day! We wanted an intimate wedding that showcased California’s natural beauty to our out-of-town guests. Having a good time was a must too. Hosting a vineyard wedding was the perfect fit. Gorgeous setting, plus wine and dancing galore!
From the first moments getting ready with our dearest friends and family, all the way to our New Orleans inspired ‘Second Line’ – the entire day was perfection. Each and every moment was filled with special personal touches that represented Jake and I becoming husband and wife.”
Now, to amp up the swoon, you have to check out their photo gallery, shot by the lovely Petula Pea Photography. Leoness Cellars looks like quite the idyllic setting, between the rolling hills and intimate, low-lit barrel rooms.
Sadly, we couldn’t capture every wonderful detail here in one post. But I have a feeling you’re going to love what you see.
