My husband and I love wine tasting, and one of our favorite places to go is Temecula, just an hour and a half south of Los Angeles. We were actually supposed to go on Sunday, but the storm forced us to postpone our plans!
Needless to say, when I saw this Temecula wine country wedding photographed by Carrie McCluskey, I knew that I had to find a place for it here on A Paper Proposal. The bride and groom, Mari and Steven, were married on a warm, sunny afternoon at the Temecula Creek Inn, a rustic, yet surprisingly expansive property within the rolling hills of beautiful Southern California wine country. I've actually never been there, but I think that my husband and I will definitely be making a stop next time!
The wedding venue is absolutely beautiful; simple, sophisticated and just a little bit rustic. The wedding ceremony took place on the grass beneath the tall, overarching trees and a wooden arbor decorated with roses in the bride's warm wedding colors, pink and coral. Besides her fabulous grey heels and dazzling earrings, the bride Mari wore a classic white strapless wedding gown, with a dramatic cage veil and a pretty white flower in her hair. Floral Designer Katrina O'Donnell arranged a beautiful bouquet for Mari with white lilies, white and coral roses, while the Maid of Honor wore a bright summer coral and held a matching bouquet of orchids and roses in white, pink and coral.
The late afternoon reception was held beside one of the Inn's rustic creek side guest homes. Guests dined outdoors and danced well after sunset, keeping warm by the heat lamps and strings of white surrounding the dance floor.
