Elegant Wine Country Wedding At South Coast
Although the boho-style weddings are becoming more popular in Temecula (and we LOVE them!) we still have a soft spot in our hearts for the modern and elegant style weddings, especially when the setting is in wine country! That is why we were blown away when Sydney Bliss Photography shared a recent South Coast Winery wedding she captured featuring Ryan and Keren! From the always classic black tuxedo with matching bow-tie rocked by Ryan to the perfectly fit wedding dress with long veil Keren sported, we were all the heart eyes when viewing their amazing wedding photos. But don’t take our word for it but instead take a few moments to scroll down and view this awesome South Coast Winery wedding documented by Sydney Bliss Photography, as well as her commentary on the couple, venue and of course the wedding day!
This was my first time shooting at South Coast Winery and I really loved it! Two of the reasons I loved the Temecula wedding venue was because of the super friendly staff at South Coast Winery, and the gorgeous reception area! It was big and open with plenty of room for an amazing set up of long farm tables, a grassy area for games, and even two fire pits for making s’mores! And the bistro lights above all the tables were stunning, setting up the perfect vibe for the evening!
The Bride & Groom
Keren and Ryan both have the coolest jobs working for the Anaheim Ducks! In fact, that is where they met 4 years ago! They found me on instagram, and I instantly knew we would be a great fit from the first time she emailed me and we chatted on the phone! They are both super kind and have great senses of humor! I tried my best to get a feel for Keren’s personality and her vision for the big day at the engagement shoot to help me better capture that vision on the actual wedding day. She has great taste and wanted everything to feel very formal and timeless while still being fun. I did my best to embody that in the way I shot and edited both the Temecula engagement and wedding photos.
My favorite thing about shooting weddings in Temecula is the refined beauty that all of the wineries have to offer! I’ve been on two, all-day wine tours in the past couple years so I’ve had the opportunity to visit a good handful of the gorgeous wineries, and I love feeling like I’ve been transported to Napa! The vineyards are a something out of a painting and the architecture of some of the wineries is absolutely stunning! Every wedding photographer’s dream!
Favorite Moment From Ryan & Keren’s Temecula Wedding
I enjoyed the entire day, but I think my favorite moment from the wedding was during the ceremony when the officiant asked Ryan to repeat the vows after him! Instead of repeating the traditional vows he had Keren say, he surprised everyone by making Ryan repeat some hilarious vows about promising to always be dumb and stupid as a couple, lol! They could barely get through it with of all the laughing! It was definitely a memorable moment.
All the wedding vendors were amazing, but I have to shout out the day-of coordinator, Andrew, from South Coast Winery for being so on top of everything and always keeping me in the loop! I also want to shout-out the band, Lucky Devils Band, for being such phenomenal entertainment as well as Gonzalez Productions for providing the cutest photo booth trailer I’ve ever seen!
About The Temecula Wedding Photographer
Sydney Bliss Photography
This is actually my first year shooting weddings and I’ve been super blessed with brides who have made my job so fun and easy! I started out as a portrait photographer a little over a year ago for a blogger friend of mine who needed photos for her fashion/lifestyle blog! It’s been a whirlwind ever since and I’m super happy that she helped me realize my passion! I currently live in Orange, CA and I’m a business student at Cal State Fullerton planning to graduate in May 2019. I hope to continue growing my wedding photography business as my main focus because, honestly, love is the greatest thing we do and if I can be apart of someone’s love story, even in the smallest way, then you better believe I’ll be there!
