Chloe and Chuck are two people who recently got married on a Tuesday at Vitagliano Winery in Temecula, California. So yes their wedding ceremony interrupted what would have been an evening of me drinking margaritas and eating potato tacos at Guadalajara’s for Taco Tuesday. But it was totally fine because the only thing better than tacos is a weekday wedding where the beer flows like wine. Honestly, everything about Chloe and Chuck’s Vitagliano Winery wedding was rad. From the small guest list (60 people), unseasonably cool weather in August and overall good vibe of the day. I can’t tell you how refreshing it is to rock a Temecula wedding (which is essentially my backyard), on a weekday and one where their are not like 14 bridesmaids and groomsmen. I mean a wedding should really be about two people getting married and all their guests having a awesome time while getting totally hammered. Not, how you can fit every person you’ve met since you were 6 into your wedding party. Thank you for sticking with me while I lost control for a moment when discussing large wedding parties. I appreciate your patience and non-judgement as we work through this all together! Now let’s get back to Chloe and Chuck, the reason for this wedding blog post!
So Chloe and Chuck wanted to get married on their dating anniversary which was 8/2 and have a intimidate wedding in the Temecula Valley. They chose Vitagliano Winery, which also goes by the name of Lake Oak Meadows, as their wedding venue. The place is actually a pretty rad spot located off Glen Oaks Road in the Temecula wineries. From a photographers’ standpoint, the groom and bridal suites are really close together, which means less walking for my aging, and fattening ass, and there are a lot do little places to mix up portraits. What I mean is you could shoot Lake Oak Meadows a bunch of time and still feel like you could be creative, something that is always nice to feel as a wedding photographer. I would continue to provide details from this Temecula wedding and how awesome it was to kick ass with Chloe and Chuck but it’s Sunday and I have a dinner date at Karl Strauss for some veggie burgers and IPAs so I really need to walk away from this computer and get my buzz on. So cheers for reading all this jibber jabber and enjoy a small sample of photos from Chloe and Chuck’s wedding!
