Andrew and Kristine had one of the most beautiful wedding days from start to finish at one of our favorite venues, Forever and Always Farm in Temecula, CA. These two were just so happy and laid back. As one of the flower girls chartered a journal back and forth between the groom and bridal suites for Andrew and Kristine to write sweet nothings to one another you could just feel the love in their smiles as they read one another’s love notes. Andrew and Kristine were brought together by their mutual love for motorcycles and they both still ride. They also have a love for animals, as the maid of honor put it in her speech “Andrew has made Kristine the happiest girl with this beautiful wedding, a house and a puppy.” When I arrived to glam the bridal party Kristine was actually nowhere to be found because she was out playing with the farms resident lambs. With their love for animals, Forever and Always Farm was an obvious choice when choosing a wedding venue. Read more about Kristine and Andrew’s wedding below.

Andrew and his groomsmen went rustic with a beautifully textured gray suit, burgundy ties and boutenieers by Soiree Design. Kristine knows her bridesmaids so well that she hand picked each of their dresses and pantsuit based on their personalities and we must say-she nailed it! The girls all looked stunning and most importantly felt themselves. Kristine turned heads in a beautiful strapless A-line wedding gown with lace overlay. She accented her gown with rose gold accessories to compliment her stunning rose gold engagement ring. I especially enjoyed getting photos of her rose gold Badgley Mischka flats, which were giving me all of the heart eyes.

The heartfelt ceremony was conducted by Andrew’s father, a longtime pastor, who gave the most beautiful meaning to the couples ceremony by really incorporating their personalities into every last word. Following the ceremony we whisked Kristine and Andrew across the road for some photos. There is an open field with tall swaying grasses and old trees that all get kissed-by-the-sun just before dusk bathing everything in the dreamiest light. Forever and Always Farms owner, Pam followed with blizzard, the flower crown wearing alpaca, who made a guest appearance for some of the photos. Wedding alpacas were a first for us and we couldn’t get enough of the fun, corky adorableness they offered.

We returned the bride and groom to their guests where everyone dined, laughed and danced into the night, which was capped off by an amazing sparkler exit.

Thank you both for allowing us to document your special day and letting us share in all of the love and emotion of your wedding. Wishing you all of the happiness in the world!
