Temecula Wedding At Terra Bella
The Bride & Groom (Olivia & Zane)
Zane and I first met at a church connection group. Zane kept asking me to hang out but I blew him off a few times. It is kind of a funny story we talk about now! My best friend and mother said to keep an open mind about him so I eventually said “yes” when he asked me out on a date night. We went on a few dates, and I knew after a month that my Mom and best friend were right about this man. He really was something amazing. I also knew I would be marrying him. Literally after six months of dating we got engaged and then married one year and a day after our first date! It really was a whirlwind romance!
Terra Bella: Temecula Wedding Venue
When scouting out the different wedding venues in Temecula I knew was looking for a venue that was unique, different from the average wedding venue. Terra Bella was the one that really stood out from the rest of the wedding venues we looked at because the venue offered an outdoor private space with a backdrop of gorgeous mountains. It was definitely elegant within a rustic setting, and the perfect spot for our Temecula wedding!
Our wedding was faith based with Zane’s father being the wedding officiant. Our vows were traditional. Our wedding ceremony was outdoor with a gorgeous mountain backdrop. Terra Bella provided us a very intimate setting, as the wedding venue was located in a private setting. We had approximately 200 guests, and there was still plenty of space for the ceremony, cocktail reception, dinner and dancing with a bar area, photo booth and DJ. Terra Bella was also open to us bringing in our own preferred Temecula wedding vendors for food, music, flowers, DJ and wedding photography.
Tell Us Some Fun Stuff About The Wedding!
We had great entertainment with DJ Dustin with “High End Events” that played awesome music and created a fun atmosphere. We had a photobooth by “Your Photo booth”, and how could I forget… we had a first dance to “Then” by Brad Paisley! However, my most memorable moment was a choreographed dance with my dad to ” Don’t Fear the Reaper”. All the wedding guests loved it!
Any Advice For Future Brides Getting Married?
Thankfully, I had no real challenges planning the wedding because my mom and sister organized everything. They were so great! So the only thing I had to really worry about was picking out a wedding dress! However, if I had to give any piece of advice to future brides and grooms I would suggest taking the time and money to hire either a week of or two-day-before wedding event coordinator. They really do make the wedding day run so much more smoothly!
