Temecula winery weddings have become quite popular, and it’s no surprise considering the spectacular views most wineries offer. Samantha and Kevin’s outdoor wedding and reception was held at Falkner Winery in Temecula. I photographed the wedding of a friend from my sorority who was married there about a year before Samantha and Kevin, so I was very familiar with all Falkner had to offer. I strongly suggest that the bride and groom see each other before the ceremony and get a bulk of the photos out of the way. Samantha and Kevin were in favor of the idea, so we had enough time to walk around the grounds and get a great variety of bride + groom photos before heading to the party. Their reception had all the elements of a great reception: heartfelt speeches, a beer chugging contest (instigated by the best man), and thanks to DJ Flo– a packed dancefloor all night long. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Rathburn, for yet another reason I love my job!

Talk about a happy bride!
The barrel room at Falkner Winery definitely gives off a masculine vibe.
The backlighting from the sun gives this image a very ethereal feeling.
Woohoo! Finally married!
I added a soft, dark filter in post production to further emphasize the dramatic mood of this image.
The first dance. Falkner Winery has a great outdoor area for wedding ceremonies & receptions.
There were several emotional toasts…
