Kyana and Ross’ wedding at the Fazeli Cellars Winery in Temecula, CA was definitely one to remember. Kyana is actually the daughter of the owner, BJ Fazeli, so you know this wedding was one of the biggest events of the year! The Fazeli Cellars Winery showcases the most stunning architecture, gorgeous scenery and of course, the best wine. So getting to photograph this wedding was so special to us and SUCH an honor.

Kyana and Ross’ wedding theme incorporated shades of burgundy and maroon, which was perfect for the fall. Everything from the wedding party attire, all the floral, the table details to the cake, went so well together.

Keep scrolling to get the gist of this wedding! It was so hard to only pick a handful from this day because everything was so picture perfect.

Madison and Arthur’s wedding at the Lindley-Scott House was a beautiful mix of navy blue, maroon, and mauve tones with a hint of gold. It was such an amazing time getting to capture their wedding day because these two were just glowing. Madison had the most infectious smile and laughter and seeing both Madison and Arthur together made our hearts so happy!

Back in early 2017, we actually had the honor of photographing Madison’s brother’s wedding at Callaway Winery in Temecula, CA. Shortly after that, we had the honor of getting to photograph her cousin’s wedding at Sacred Mountain in Julian, CA where Madison was actually the maid of honor! Fast forward to a year later, Madison had reached out to us to have her shoot her wedding and we were SO excited to see her family again. It was particularly special for us to get to see their family grow and see these familiar happy faces again.

This was such a fun styled shoot to photograph because there were so many gorgeous details! From the vibrant dress colors to the Southern tradition mint julep bar to even having our very own race horse for photos!! Okay so maybe not an actual race horse but let’s pretend for the sake of this post 😂

While we don’t consider ourselves wedding planners by any means (we’ll leave that up to the professionals) we do have a timeline and things we need to get done to make sure the entire day runs according to plan. Here at Leah Marie Photography we do our very best to give tips, advice and worksheets so that you feel good about the day and that we have all the information we need. So today we are sharing some tips we give our brides on how to ensure the day goes smoothly!

 

Hair & Make-up:  You’re #1

Time and time again…we see our brides running HOURS late because their hair and make-up artist did them last.  You might be thinking “But won’t my makeup not look as good/fresh if I’m first?” The answer is not at all! If you hired a pro then he or she will be able to use products that will last all day and night long, through tears, laughs, drinks, cake, dancing and more!

Have your hair and make-up artist do you first so that you are ready at least two hours before our start time.  Then you can sit back, relax, and enjoy yourself (aka sipping on some champagne)  while everyone else is getting done.  If time runs out, we can always start with pictures of you while missing a bridesmaid or two.
