We are SO EXCITED to announce our vendor partnership with Forever and Always Farms located just outside Temecula in the beautiful Santa Rosa Plateau! We are honored to be preferred vendors at this dreamy private property and venue. Pamela (The owner of Forever and Always Farms) and I met through a local business connection, and she invited John and I up for a visit. When we arrived at the gates of her property, we were both speechless. From the lush garden areas, to the bridal suite and ceremony site, it was obvious that no detail was left out. I turned and looked at John and said this property is my dream venue! As a Temecula wedding photographer, I look for specific details in a venue. The color tones, the ceremony site layout and the natural light in the bridal suite is all SO important in how I’m able to capture our brides on their wedding day. When I say; “it’s all about the light,” it really is! Pamela has done such an incredible job at making sure her venue is tailored around beautiful photography. She has placed the ceremony location in the perfect area with the cascading mountain views in the distance and she arranges the ceremony start time just right for the golden glow that will highlight all the beautiful features on the bride and her gown. This is such a crucial detail many brides and venues do not take into consideration. So many times I have seen a perfect venue, but the light on the bride and groom during the ceremony was very harsh and unflattering.
There is also a perfect location for brides that would like to do a fist look. It is shaded with bright purple wisteria vines growing over arches on a long pathway. Alternately, there is another garden path just outside the getting-ready suites that is lined with hundreds of romantic lavender and white iceberg roses. Did I mention the two beautiful white peacocks? The male loves to show off for his mate by spreading his giant feathers.
When Pamela opened up her front door to the cocktail patio and incredibly unique interior space where the grand piano played, I couldn’t stop looking at all the details in the space she created. Finches were singing in their elaborate glass cage and the sexy, yet masculine furniture pieces had my mind turning with all the incredible bride and groom portraits I could style in this space. The front and back entrance opened up entirely with double barn doors giving an inviting open-air feel that makes you feel welcomed in at any time.
There are so many locations on the property to capture beautiful portraits of the couples that choose this as their venue. So many in fact, that if I photographed here a dozen times, I would never have the same look. There is even the most adorable wooden swing that could be adorned with lots of romantic florals. Capturing the bride here alone would add a special touch to her final gallery. Along the same road is a wide open field with acres and acres of tall grass and wildflowers. This is the special location where we will take our couples for their portraits immediately following the ceremony. We have timed it just right to get the golden hour light that everyone loves about our images. It is far enough away from guests, so you can relax and easily flow into your dreamy romantic portraits.
I cannot say enough great things about this venue and more importantly, how Pamela and her staff truly care about every last detail of your wedding experience. After recently booking a few brides here there was a common theme among them. They all said they not only booked because of how beautiful it looked and how nice she was, but because of how much time Pamela took with them. This is the biggest day of your life and you deserve the client experience and wedding that you always dreamed of.
