Alyssa + Todd's Engagement Session- Temecula, CA

When Elyse of Plum & Oak Photo shared the engagement session for Alyssa and Todd, I knew that she had captured it perfectly! Alyssa told me she had decided on Ponte Family Estate as her location for the shoot and I knew it was going to be amazing. Ponte holds such a special spot in my heart as I worked there for several years and it continues to be the premier wedding venue in Temecula Wine Country. Ladies, if you have not chosen your wedding venue yet, you do not want to miss out on this stunner! San Diego Wedding PlannerNow back to Alyssa and Todd... I am fortunate enough to have learned their story over time. I tend to have a few too many coffee dates and email chains going with my brides, so when they open up to me about their story, I just can’t help but get a little giddy inside! These two met at church and brought their beautiful son into this world. They are truly a beautiful family inside and out. Alyssa and Todd are tying the knot this July in San Diego at the Bali Hai Restaurant and I get to be apart of this special day! Can it be summer yet?

And I do not want to leave out who did Alyssa’s beautiful hair and makeup- Stacey with Beauty by Stacey. I met Alyssa through Stacey, as she assists her on wedding days. The wedding world is a small one but the fact that Stacey put Alyssa and I together, was perfection.

Krista + Eric Celebrate 1 Year!

Ponte Temecula Wedding Planner When you come across such inspirational couples, they tend to leave a big imprint on your heart. This was definitely the case with Krista and Erik Bosshart, who are celebrating their 1-year anniversary on March 1st! I met them at Ponte Family Estate, where they shared their love story and let me into their world. With a date picked, the planning began! A few short months later, I learned that Erik would begin treatments for cancer and the wedding would need to be postponed. My heart was heavy, but I was confident that Erik would get through this and the wedding would go on! I was pleased to hear they would reschedule for March 1, 2014. Praying for a perfect day, God simply sprinkled His joyous tears on the couple that day with a little bit of rain. I always say that rainy, gloomy days, bring the best pictures, and this was definitely the case on this special day. I hope you enjoy these pictures and the inspiring story of a love that prevailed through trying circumstances.
