A Winery Wedding: Part 1

Napa? Temecula? Sonoma?

Jenn and Chad had the most vibrant, lively, joy-filled wedding at Cotolot Vineyards, a private residence in Coto De Caza complete with a vineyard, wine tasting barn, grassy meadow, and more. Coto is filled with so many amazing estates, but Cotolot Vineyards, owned by the groom’s gracious relatives, absolutely takes the cake. While we were setting up, I couldn’t help but daydream a little bit about being the queen of Cotolot.

The inspiration for Jenn and Chad’s wedding was wine tasting- the rich green and purple color of grapes, the rustic feel of a vineyard, the intimate and festive atmosphere of a boutique winery, with a bit of glitz and glam added to the mix.

The wedding was perfectly executed by one of my favorite planners, Kerrie Underhill of Platinum Weddings by Kerrie. The fabulous Tony of Tony Florez Photography was there to capture every detail beautifully. I swung by his immaculate studio in Corona Del Mar today, and he was kind enough to give me a cd with over 1200 glorious images. I had so much trouble choosing just a few to share with you.

Meet our gorgeous bride, Jenn.

    So special! Those bridesmaid’s bouquets are absolutely amazing, Kris (as is every other floral detail, of course!).
