Tyler and Zach's wedding at Ponte Winery in Temecula, California was one I won’t soon forget. This was one of those weddings that I had been looking forward to for an entire year. Upon meeting Tyler and Zach, I just knew they were a perfect fit for the Mink Photography family! They are fun, outdoorsy, adventurous, and stylish. I couldn't wait to work with them! Shortly after our Starbucks meeting, we scheduled their winter (well it's California, so "winter") engagement session, and started talking more about the wedding. When the day came, we started with the pretty details and grounds of the venue - which by the way - was GORGEOUS. I'm always a fan of wine and the romanticism of wineries!
Tyler and Zach met in San Diego and the rest is history. He popped the question at Wilson Creek Winery (also one of my faves) in Temecula. Which, is totally fitting because these two love wineries and they get to have two in their love story! They are fun-loving, adventurous, so in love and it's everything I hope for when I photograph my couples. I love the laughter, joy, and real moments. They are down to earth and have a love for their friends and family that is absolutely beautiful.
The wedding day started in the gorgeous rooms at the Ponte Vineyard Inn where hair and make-up was done and the guys of course hung out and joked around. The girls drank champagne in matching robes on the patio while the guys relaxed and opened some fun gifts. Tyler was surrounded with so much love from her girls and the guys were surrounded with laughter and fun all day and I can’t imagine a more perfect wedding.
The ceremony overlooked the pond and mountains while they read their own vows and had a wine ceremony in the California sunshine. After the ceremony, it was time for the bride and groom portraits!! We had one of the best sunsets I have ever seen on a wedding day, the timing could not have been more perfect. It's like this day was meant for them.
All in all, it was truly a perfect day. Together, Tyler and Zachary compliment one another, and are, indeed, a perfect match, and I am just bursting with joy that I got to document their love story.
Tyler and Zach, I am so beyond happy that I got to be there to witness the beginning of your next big adventure. Thank you a million times over for being so incredible. Your happiness is contagious and I absolutely loved being surrounded by it on your wedding day. Cheers to a lifetime of love and happiness!
