This gorgeous wedding took place at Milagro Winery a Ramona, CA Valley Estate. Way up in the hills, past the hustle and bustle of busy SOCAL life, surrounded by sculpted boulders, rich terrain and acres of vineyards, sits the most beautiful venue. The light stucco, and deep, rich oak, and climbing ivy of the building’s exteriors, wine barrel decor, lagoon and lush natural greenery pay homage to the beloved characteristics so unique to Southern California.
Initially I thought the peach and periwinkle color scheme in the flowers and cake would take a backseat to the natural surroundings, and the beauty of the couple, and yet, they were able to “hold their own among” it, proving me wrong. “What a delightful color combination.”
In fact it was precisely the way the pastels melted into each other and the landscape, combined with florals from Paloma Blanca Flowers, cake by Sweet Maple Creations, and decor and styling by Janita Mestre Photography, that gave the entire wedding a very romantic Parisian flair! Imagine that, Paris, in the middle of Southern California!
Every detail from the heirloom pearl jewelry, the chiffon and lace gown, to the botanical hand-calligraphic invitation suite and Ally’s stunning hair and makeup, was carefully thought out, and perfectly executed.
Ally and Chase have been a couple for over fifteen years, and yet the adoration emanating between them was that of a newly forged couple! It’s not often I leave a photo session with stars in my eyes, feeling like I’m floating on a cloud, but this one did me in. What a pleasure it was to be a part of.
