Tyler and Laura had a beautiful wedding day from start to finish at one of our favorite venues, Forever and Always Farm in Temecula, CA. We love their casual vibes and laid back personalities. This was a trait affectionately shared by their wedding party. Loyalty was also a trait shared and voiced by their closest friends in attendance.
Tyler proposed to Laura on New Year’s Eve at a private villa in Coronado surrounded by family and friends. As the story goes, he told Laura to get dressed up for a New Year’s party they were going to attend. He led her down an aisle that was beautifully lit up to a sign that read, “Marry Me”. It was a complete surprise to her when he took a knee and expressed that he wanted to spend the rest of their lives together. As friends and family witnessed and cheered; “Surprise!” she said yes!
Tyler and his groomsmen went classic with black tuxedos, vests, and bow-ties. Every one of them looked on-point and very dapper. Laura’s bridesmaids looked absolutely stunning in flowing, full-length periwinkle dresses that complimented Laura in her magnificent wedding gown. Speaking of Laura’s gown, it was so incredibly beautiful and she wore it perfectly. Her cathedral veil blew me away. I’ve wanted to photograph a veil like hers for a quite a while, so I was extremely excited to have that opportunity.
Following the fabulous dinner (and the emotional heartfelt toasts by close friends and family), the couple’s first dance was complemented by their guests surrounding the dance floor holding sparklers! This was a first for us since we’ve never had the opportunity to photograph sparklers at a wedding before. It was awesome! As the evening progressed, the guests sipped on two specialty cocktails prepared specifically to honor family members who could not be present.
Tyler and Laura, you’re beautiful together and you’re loved by so many. Congratulations to you both and we wish you a wonderfully fulfilling and future together!
