we got married Sept 25th at Falkner Winery in Temecula, and it was a fairytale dream come true! Here's a little venue/vendor recap!
Venue:Falkner Winery- insanely beautiful grounds, gorgeous scenery, lighting,etc. Food and wine were top notch a quite a deal for being all inclusive! Wedding coordinator,Krissy, and winery owner, Loretta, were incredible and so well organized! Emails and phone calls were immediately returned! Couldn't have been happier with this choice!
Photography: Kiss the Bride Photography (KTB weddings), Ezra Primack. He came down from Pasadena and was chosen for his unique style and use of natural lighting. His portfolio online is gorgeous! Although we haven't seen the pics yet, working with him was awesome..super laid back, great ideas, everyone clicked with him! Would highly recommend! Also very well priced, good value.
Flowers: a Temecula Florist, I.e. Bill the Flower Guy.. For not being able to meet with him in person ( we r from MN) and doing everything online and over the phone, I was pleased overall. There were a few glitches here and there, but bill went above and beyond to make everything flow! He is such a nice guy and his prices are RIGHT! I liked that he gave us several price point options.
Bakery: Truly,Madly, Sweetly in Murietta: we did cupcakes and let me just say they were to die for! People were going nuts over them; especially the peanut butter and chocolate, and the lemon curd. Mercediz, who helped us with our tasting was awesome! Yum mm! Wish I would have requested to have the leftovers packaged up!
Violinist: Krissy Staykova of classic strings by Krissy: she is so gifted and added such a romantic touch to our vineyard wedding! At the last minute, she coordinated with my brother who was singing Marry Me with his guitar and she accompanied him! So beautiful and one of the sweetest people I have ever met!!
