I have known Yvonne for over 7 years so I was honored when she hired At Your Side as her wedding planning team. Yvonne and Todd made such a cute pair. We met to discuss planning a few times over sushi and I loved how fun they were to be around. We decided on a elegant yet lively wedding at a winery with rustic and natural elements that could also be incorporated into the design. Shortly thereafter we discovered the perfect venue.
Yvonne and Todd’s romantic day was held at Leoness Cellars in Temecula, California. It was a stunning evening for an outdoor ceremony. The decor included a chandelier and long flowing white chiffon curtains as well as baby’s breath adorning the aisle from Splendid Sentiments floral design. The light and airy pieces complimented the bridesmaid’s blush pink dresses.
The flower girl delicately dropped flower petals before the bride’s procession, while a couple of the cutest ring bearers followed. They weren’t sure why she kept dropping petals so they did the naturally polite thing – they picked them all up!
The officiant, Rabbi Marc Rubenstein, did a lovely job making the ketubah signing and ceremony a sentimental moment for Todd and Yvonne to remember forever.
Yvonne looked ravishing walking down the aisle, with hair and makeup by Flirt Beauty Bar. She wore a short dress with cute blue heels, a look that suited her personality perfectly!
At the end of the ceremony, guests waved pink ribbon wands as the newlyweds walked down the aisle. Cocktail hour overlooked the rolling hills and vineyards of the winery. Guests were delighted to sample wines made right where they were spending their day.
Escort cards were attached to keys arranged on platters atop a gorgeous vintage inspired table.
Grand floral centerpieces with crystals and candles made the reception space truly exquisite.
The bridal party was announced by the emcee and DJ from Good Time Entertainment, and the bride and groom went directly into their first dance. Soon after, they were lifted into the air on chairs during the traditional Jewish wedding dance known as the Hora. The looks on the couple’s faces were priceless! Following a delicious buffet, Jodee’s Bakery provided an elegant and tasty cake for dessert.
Family and friends spent the rest of the evening dancing with the happy couple and taking pictures in the photo booth, while Scott Land did a wonderful job photographing the day. Todd and Yvonne, we wish you a happy life and a marriage as beautiful as your wedding day!
