Avalon and Matthew-Harris Grove, Temecula Estate-San Diego Wedding Photographer

Avalon and Matt's wedding was perfect! They were married at a private estate in Temecula called Harris Grove. It was a gorgeous property located in the hills of Temecula. Harris Grove is filled with gorgeous towering trees, a beautiful lake, and a bridge that led to a small island where the ceremony was to take place. Not only was the property amazing, but Avalon and Matt are two of the sweetest people that you will ever meet! They were super easy going and relaxed for their big day, and they just had fun! Their first look was so sweet and perfect, and they were so natural together that my second shooter and I were just able to sit back and let the moment unfold! We had plenty of time to take photos around the estate, utilizing the giant trees and beautiful lake as our background. And we finished up early enough for them to get some down time in before the ceremony. The ceremony itself was packed with people crossing the gorgeous white bridge that led to the island. There were plenty of tears to go around as the guests witnessed this beautiful ceremony, but Avalon and Matt were full of smiles and joy as they committed their lives to one another. After the wedding ceremony, we took more photos then started a reception full of dancing, toasts, a cute dessert bar, and great food! Laughter rang out for the toasts, and everyone packed the dance floor! Avalon and Matt performed a beautifully choreographed first dance, and everyone was delighted! Their day was very special and was filled with people who truly loved them. I loved being able to capture their story, and have plenty of photos to prove it! Enjoy viewing this beautiful wedding!
