I just love vineyard weddings. The natural beauty and old-world charm of the vineyard makes for a stunning backdrop and creates a rich, romantic ambiance unlike any other. That’s why I’m just smitten with Valerie & Kevin’s Temecula, CA, wine country wedding at the Falkner Winery. Such a beautiful venue! And what’s even more beautiful? All the pretty floral designs created by floral designer Acton Creative Flowers. What a gorgeous array of colorful blooms.
Special thanks go to William Innes Photography for sharing this lovely inspiration.
How did you meet?
I’ve actually known Kevin’s family most of my life, and Kevin and I have always had mutual friends. One night while hanging out with friends we got to chatting, he asked me to dinner, and we’ve not been apart since.
While planning my wedding I had no real ideas (I’m not that crafty), but I did have a picture of a bouquet from Pinterest. I took it to my florist Linda, from Acton Creative Flowers, and she helped me choose colors and kind of come up with a wine and silver color concept. I liked the idea of having bold colored flowers, and bringing out the beauty of the winery we had chosen to have the ceremony and reception. To by honest, from there I just winged it. My friends really helped me make cool signs, and add creative touches to the wedding.
Some of my favorite memories from the wedding include our first look, where we got the chance to be alone before the whirlwind of the day. It’s hard to choose a favorite memory from the day because the entire thing was amazing. I loved being able to share the day with all the people we love.
Do You have any advice for other brides?
My advice for other brides would be to just relax and enjoy the ride. Don’t stress out, make sure to stay in your own budget, and try and remember to make sure you plan to have fun at your own party.
