Last Spring, I had the honor of shooting at this incredible styled shoot, by Styled Shoots Across America! Styled Shoots Across America travel across the country to design weddings and shoots in beautiful locations. They give photographers so much freedom!
The concept for this shoot was to create a tropical wedding but without flying into an island. They chose Emerald Peak Venue. Located in the heart of Temecula, this intimate venue is surrounded by vineyards with stunning views. It is the perfect mix of rustic and bohemian. It’s located between Los Angeles and San Diego, so it’s perfect for couples across the California coast. As a wedding photographer in California, I know how important it is to find the right venue!
Emerald Peak Venue Shoot
The ceremony took place overlooking the gorgeous cliff, which had views of the vineyards. The venue provided the triangle arch and benches. The ceremony arch was covered in stunning floral arrangements made by Taste of Honey, which gave you an elegant and modern tropical style. And each guest receives sunglasses so they could view the ceremony, in style.
Later, the reception had bright coral tones and fun organic flowers. I love the mix of fuchsia, mint and wood tones. Meanwhile, the large farm tables welcomed guests, and each seat had a custom pineapple escort card as a gift.
One of the coolest features was the Bar Station! They had a mobile bar, with a fun vintage touch. There was a huge balloon display by Mommy Poppins was so fun, and colorful! The wedding cake was served with lots of fresh fruit, and sweet custom chocolates.
This was such a fun shoot to photograph, and I’m so glad I got to attend! Thank you to the amazing team that put this together:
