Cindelle and Alex’s Falkner Winery wedding in Temecula has to be one of our favorites. The bride and groom included so many personal elements that truly represent who they are. This wedding was not your run-of-the mill Temecula winery wedding. With a few themes in mind they coordinated a very memorable wedding. Their friends and family poured so much love over them and it was a perfect day from start to finish.
Cindelle looked absolutely STUNNING and her wedding gown from Luv Bridal was just gorgeous. We started the day at the Marriott hotel in Temecula where the bridal party got glammed up by Joel Vera Sebastian & Team. Then it was off to Falkner Winery in Temecula where the reception and ceremony space transformation was just beginning. Cindelle was an amazing DIY bride. She poured her heart into every last detail from creating the bout’s, corsage’s, bouquets to creating her own centerpieces and table décor for the reception space. The personal touches were everywhere and we couldn’t get enough photos.
While the bridal party & bride were hard at work making Cindelle’s vision come to life in the reception space, we whisked Cindelle’s wedding gown away for some detail shots. We love the vibe at Falkner Winery and we knew immediately when we saw this beautiful walkway sheltered by ivy arches and cypress trees that we had to get a dress shot there. Cindelle made her own bouquet with cascading orchids that I just couldn’t get enough of (cascading bouquets are the best!) And I knew once I saw the gorgeous fountain at Falkner Winery that I needed a photo of the bouquet there. If you only saw photos of parts of Falkner Winery, I swear you wouldn’t know you were in Temecula. There are locations at the wedding venue that serve up major Italian vibes.
The ceremony at Falkner Winery was just breathtaking. We love the atmosphere at this venue! It’s so elegant and it had us imagining we were in Tuscany. Between the grape vines, rolling hills and stone fountain we felt like we were back in Italy for a moment. Before the sun went down, we wandered around for some portraits on the grounds. Temecula wineries never disappoint with gorgeous sunsets but the sunset at Falkner winery that night was just breathtaking. The skies went from a festive pastel with Easter right around the corner to a hot orange, which made for beautiful wedding portraits of the couple. Cindelle & Alex were just glowing after they became officially official. We just can’t get over how sweet these two are together!
The table décor was so unique to the couple with each table sporting its own action figure, Bible verse, and different colored up-lights. The couple’s main colors were yellow and purple, which tied everything together throughout the space from the table clothes to the centerpieces it was all a colorful masterpiece. The cake by Mare’s Custom Cakes, was no exception it was adorned with different colored flowers. And we have to mention the cutest cake topper we ever did see featuring a figure representing Alex and one representing Cindelle sitting adorably with laptops in toe. We just love when couples add special touches like this!
Cindelle & Alex, your wedding was such a joy to document. We loved spending the day with you both. Wishing you both all the best in your life and marriage together!
