It was a beautiful spring afternoon on the day of Julie + Rick’s wedding! Their backdrop was Long Shadow Ranch Winery in Temecula Wine Country, CA – a picturesque place to say “I do.” We started the day off with some details and getting ready moments.
One fun fact is that Julie is actually a hair designer who does weddings often in Temecula. So she of course did her own hair for the wedding and it looked perfect!
Once everyone was ready, it was time for the ceremony! And oh man, was it a good one! So much love. Their family friend married them and we personally feel this can help make for extra special nuptials.
Ahhh, this moment right here folks….
…and then they KISSED!
Rick’s twin boys were included in every aspect of the day. The four of them are SO cute together.
Perhaps one of our favorite parts of the day was portrait time! It was so fun and Long Shadow has so many neat corners to photograph in. Here are a few of our favorites:
Fun fact: This carriage is the exact one from the show: Little House on the Prairie. Raise your hand if you remember this old sitcom?!
The reception was a REALLY neat setup. Since their wedding was focused on an intimate family-style, they designed a dinner space that included a SUPER long farmhouse table setup that sat each and every adult guest at the event. The tables were provided by Rustic Events in Temecula. The tabletops were accented with a long green and floral runner accompanied by candle light and lanterns. It was so gorgeous!
In lieu of a champagne toast they did chocolate boot shooters instead — a little treat Long Shadow is famous for!
After dinner and toasts, we moved into the barn for dancing and a continued party!
DJ Pros of Temecula, did a fabulous job of keeping the dance floor busy! There was one great song after another.
And then sadly, the night concluded. It was an absolute JOY to capture this special wedding. We know we will look back on these memories for many years to come!
