Romantic and Elegant California Vineyard Wedding – Anais & Derek

Anais and Derek don’t have your typical love story. Meeting at an Apple store while getting her phone fixed, their relationship grew and blossomed into something magical. Through a series of broken phones and Instagram messages, Anais and Derek’s relationship blossomed, resulting in a grand proposal under the Urban Lights at LACMA. After years of planning, they said “I Do” at Ponte Winery.

With any California winery, one always expects quality. This luxurious vintage-styled wedding in Temecula, California was nothing short of that. Ponte Winery, set in the heart of Wine Country amongst acres of rolling hills and rich green vineyards, was the perfect venue for this oh-so-dreamy celebration.

The ceremony was set outside with a wooden archway altar and a picturesque backdrop of rolling hills. Derek anxiously awaited his bride at the end of the aisle in a pale blue/gray suit. To finish off his dapper look, he wore a navy paisley styled tie and brown shoes. His groomsmen were dressed simple but classy in navy pants, a white button-up, navy suspenders, and ivory bow ties. Their ivory/blush bow ties matched the bride tribe’s modern and flowy ivory/blush dresses. All of the gorgeous bridesmaids were decked out thanks to Vineyard Floral Design. They each wore baby’s breath floral crowns, and carried one-stem sunflower “bouquets”.

The gorgeous bride was styled in a sweetheart neckline gown with flowing chiffon from The Dresser Bridal Couture. With layers of fabric, floral lace details, and a sparkling bridal belt, it was a beautiful pairing for her all-around soft and elegant look. Her makeup and hair were both perfectly put together by Jose Carrillo, who created a vintage style updo with her hair tucked effortlessly into her dainty and elegant headpiece, which paired with her sparkling vintage earrings and belt. Anais told us that she’s always loved anything and everything vintage, and there’s no doubt that played a huge role in her inspiration for the wedding.

The towering and delicious cake, crafted by Cakes to Celebrate was displayed on a gorgeous gold accented piano. It was adorned with floral arrangements by the talented florists at Vineyard Floral Design which complimented the bride’s bouquet of white, ivory, and blush colored flowers.

The Ponte ballroom included high ceilings and dazzling chandeliers, with guests tables set with ivory and white paisley linens, gold accents, and pops of green and blue. Set in front of a glamorous gold tufted loveseat, and surrounded by more sparkling chandeliers, the sweetheart table was a glamorous setting for the lovely couple to enjoy a delicious dinner prepared by the on-site catering staff at Ponte Winery. The couple and their guests continued the celebration through the evening by dancing to music provided by the DJ.
