A Perfectly Pastel Pink Wedding in California

Let us just start by saying thank you to Diana McGregor Photography, because without her talented lens we wouldn’t be able to see this stunning ceremony first hand. Add in coordination from Mele Amore Events and lovely Jenny Yoo gowns and you’ve got yourself one gallery that’s as good as gold (or in this case, pretty as pink). See it all in The Vault!

From the Bride…I always envisioned an intimate romantic, rustic, outdoor wedding/reception at a winery or ranch. The reception was held under a semi covered veranda with cafe lighting but open to the vineyards as the backdrop. Vineyard chairs with a mix of round and wooden farm tables with the most beautiful organic loose floral arrangements and green garlands set the romantic and rustic tone. The colors of the wedding included blush/pink tones with hints of gold and mint. The guest count was about 130 people, the perfect size to fit our venue!

Ray and I officially met at the wedding of our mutual friends in September 2013. We were both in the wedding party! I like to say after the wedding he Facebook stalked me! At the time, he was living on the east coast finishing up his dental residency so we chatted a lot as friends via Facebook. Funny enough we grew up 5 minutes apart in neighboring cities but never met each other until September 2013. Our cross country friendship turned into something more as months passed and Ray eventually moved back home in June 2014! We have been never been apart since! Ray proposed to me on our 2nd trip to our most favorite city- Paris on April 29th, 2015! It was the most perfect moment on the love lock bridge. Seconds after I threw our love lock key into the river, I turned to see him on one bended knee with the most beautiful engagement ring. Paris is very special to us, we have even gone back a third time in the last 1. 5 years. We hope to take many more trips to Paris in our lifetime!

After searching high and low and still not able to find the perfect venue, Europa Village and Winery was recommended by my mother in law to be. She had recently attended a yearly meeting hosted at Europa Village and Winery and knew we were interested in the Temecula wine country area as a possible wedding site. From the very first moment I stepped on the grounds of the winery, I fell in love with the natural beauty of venue. The central garden and Parisian feel of courtyard was perfect for cocktail hour and the reception area was exactly what I had been looking for. Europa Village and Winery also had a small bed and breakfast (Europa bed and breakfast) on a hill above the vineyard. It was perfect for our bridal party and family to stay at for the wedding weekend and also to host our rehearsal dinner!

My dress! Unable to buy my perfect dress off the shelf, I custom designed my wedding dress with an amazing dress maker for 9 months prior to my wedding. Mr. Seo and I met every 3 weeks and after months/hours of relentless hard work and changes, I wore the most perfect custom dress on my wedding day. I could not thank Mr. Seo enough for making my vision a reality. I was torn between two styles of dresses- romantic fitted lace vs a flowy chiffon skirt as well as hanging sleeves. Mr. Seo was able to let me have it all by making me a detachable chiffon skirt and detachable hanging sleeves to pair with my beautiful strapless chantilly lace dress with scallop top and bottom. I loved the hanging sleeve look so much, I didn’t detach them at the reception! Dessert is very important to my husband and I! We especially love to eat good desserts! We wanted to treat our guests to our some of our favorite desserts and drinks so we decided to have a donuts, coffee, cookies and milk station. This was a hit! The desserts/drinks flew off the shelf like a Black Friday sale! Between the two dessert stations, we also had a delicious 3 tier naked cake (almond champagne cake with raspberry bavarian cream) as the center of desserts sitting on a wine barrel.

On the First Night They Met That He Was Going to Marry Her

Would you believe me if I told you that on the first night they met, Todd told Ashleigh that was going to marry her? What if I told you that Erica Schneider Photography told me that this was in fact, true. Well, in the event that you’re still doubting said fact, I invite you to witness what Todd was planning all along in The Vault!

“Todd told Ashleigh on the first night

they met that he was going to marry her”

From Erica Schneider PhotographyAshleigh and Todd tied the knot in the backyard of their home in Temecula, CA. Todd (Potter) is a professional freestyle motocross rider and they met years ago at an event where Ashleigh was also modeling at the time to get through college. Todd told Ashleigh on the first night they met that he was going to marry her. Ashleigh thought he was a little bit crazy, but here they are six years later surrounded by family and friends at their dream wedding! Ashleigh looked stunning in her subtle but feminine Grace Loves Lace dress. Ashleigh and Todd spent many hours on the evolution of their backyard into a wedding venue and on the rustic chic details that decorated their ceremony and reception. After their first kiss as husband and wife, the two drove off in Todd’s vintage Ford pickup. The newlyweds will be honeymooning in Italy this month!

From Ashley Kelemen… Taylor and Brad’s wedding day was as sweet as they are, full of personal details and an emphasis on fun and beautiful moments. They brought LVL Events on board to make the day perfect, from the lawn games (jumbo Yahtzee anyone?) to the donut bar and every pretty detail in between. The live music rounded out their celebration, especially when Brad hopped on stage at the end of the evening to serenade Taylor like a rock star. The gorgeous florals by Olive and Willow perfectly tied together the soft colors of the surrounding landscape, the mismatched bridesmaid dresses and the sweet vibe of the couple. Overall, Taylor and Brad wanted the day to feel comfortable for all their guests, with lounge areas to encourage sitting and talking, endless amounts of delicious food and a perfect atmosphere for celebrating.
