All the elements come together to make an extra special rainy wedding day shine!

Sometimes it rains on your wedding day, even in San Diego, but you know what...with love, a great perspective, a wedding venue as gorgeous as the Temecula Creek Inn and all the elements coming together like this, it just doesn't matter! 

This happy bride says "Our inspiration for the wedding day was nature; and nature showed up big time with a very rare rainy stormy spring day in Temecula! Our original vision was of a sunny outdoor event surrounded by trees and greenery with bright rich spring colored flowers. We wanted a relaxed outdoor gathering that showcased our beautiful venue and our love for nature. We stuck to our nature theme with plantable seed paper invitations, sustainable menu provided by our venue, colorful flowers everywhere and lawn games and fire pits to keep people spread out enjoying the day. We incorporated both of our inspirations into the wedding décor; I wanted a boho feel with Moroccan colors and textures and my husband wanted a rustic feel with woods and natural touches. We named our style ‘eclectic rustic bohemian’. We were a little non-traditional and had no groomsmen or bridesmaids, and my sister was our ceremony officiant. We had no true color scheme, I just wanted bright vibrant spring colors richly saturating the whole wedding, the venue and flowers were really the focus."

This happy bride continues..."Some of my favorite elements were things that reflected us; gold silverware and multicolored glassware really showed off my personal style and the wood grain cake, wooden details, and amber glass vases were some of my husbands favorites. Our coordinator/designer/florist really helped bring my vision into reality and made sure to have all the little details we wanted. Our cake was a simple white with a wood grain look draped with our colorful flowers, it was one of our all-time favorite parts of the wedding look. We also incorporated little themes into the details that were really just for my husband and I. We love the Southern California hummingbirds that represent spring and nature to us so we hid little hummingbirds in many aspects, from our invitation, to our personalized wedding favor fleece blankets, to wooden signs. We also incorporated mixed metals and golds into the décor to accent the yellow gold in our wedding rings."
