Set in the nomadic surrounds of Temecula, CA lies this secret twenty-acre pistachio farm turned wedding venue known as Wolf Feather Honey Farm. Forged for the wild at heart Wolf Feather Honey Farm and The Intrepid Wild tantalize with an off the cuff aesthetic, vivacious bohemian spirit and expansive mountain views.
Wolf Feather Honey Farm was the perfect setting for our “Bohemian Dream” themed wedding photo shoot. Imagined and designed by Alexis + Adrian of Together For Better Events, one of our favorite full service planner and designer duos bohemian dream was comprised of humble hearts, golden lighting and a bit of magic.
The mood board consisted of rich hues, layered textures, lots of ambient light and a dream like touch of whimsy. The wedding palette featured gold accents, earthen alabaster, stone gray and deep crimson berry hues.
We began in the studio space where the afternoon light spilled through the windowpane creating patterns on the concrete floor. Our model bride sat in the velvet armchairs as Kelly Huber of Kelly Huber Hair twisted, texturized and braided Morgan’s golden locks into a laid back bohemian bridal up-do. Emily Burhop swept shimmery bronzes across Morgan’s eyelids. Creamy textures were layered upon her skin for a fresh, earthy bridal glow. The Christina Sfez wedding dresses hung delicately upon the ornate mirror. The light illuminated the intricate lace detailing, the luxurious sheer fabrics and the timeless silhouettes.
We closed the doors for Morgan to slip into one of the Christina Sfez wedding gowns. The black sliding barns doors opened as Morgan appeared in the spaghetti strapped, lace, column wedding dress. The timeless shape of the gown flattered Morgan’s svelte figure. Her groom awaited her as she picked up the asymmetrical bridal bouquet created by The Social Flower. The crimson hues, juxtaposed with the light feathery pampas grass and swaying nude silk ribbon had us mesmerized.
The water beaded off of the metal tumbler as Snake Oil Cocktail shook, rattled and poured the hand crafted frothy wedding cocktails into champagne coupes. Adorned with lavender, kiwi and dried peppers we were all tasting them with our eyes before they even touched our lips.
The cake created by Sweet Cheeks Baking Co. was like a sculptural masterpiece. The tall two-tier wedding cake was painted to look like amethyst. The nuanced palette of mauve danced its way across the white fondant. It was almost too pretty to eat, key word being almost.
We took the couple up to the ceremony site at Wolf Feather Honey Farm. Foraged sticks provide a backdrop against the valley views perfect for a wedding ceremony. Dan from Rolling Tide Films hovered and swooped with his drone to capture the couple beneath the wedding arbor. Weathered church pews sit in the open space ready to bear witness to elopements and weddings alike.
A sweetheart table styled with beautiful finds from Birdie In A Barn awaited the couple at the top of the hill. The wedding reception was nestled in the pistachio trees. The farm table seemed to go on endlessly. Resting beneath market lights the wedding table was eclectic and inviting. Marble chargers from Birdie In A Barn each had their own story to tell with unique designs and bits of transparency. The footed goblets were just begging to be clinked together in celebration. Staggering heights of tapered candles sprouted up from the table’s center like wildflowers, each flickering with an inviting warmth. The floral arrangements by The Social Flower spilled onto the table with organic form perfect for the laid back bohemian wedding. The ambience called for laughter and celebration beneath the stars as the candles wither down and the goblets go dry.
