Winery Wedding Video Highlights Love, Beautiful Land and an Awesome Sunset!

We love our local wineries and the people who work so hard to bring the age old tradition of farming the land [and making wine!] to life in our day and age. And of course we love local winery wedding venues! Check out this winery wedding highlight reel by Aspect Media Works! 

Bride Rosie tells us "David and I have met in San Diego four years ago and fell in Love immediately. Our engagement was an absolute fairytale so I knew I wanted our wedding to be the same. As a hairstylist and makeup artist I have been behind the scenes at so many weddings, so going into planning our wedding I knew exactly what we wanted and what we didn’t. 

We chose to keep it small and romantic so we chose Milagro Winery which is hidden in the hills of Ramona. It is an absolute dream venue! Their day of coordination was amazing and made my dream a reality not to mention they have really good wine. We also found a one stop shop with our caterers, they provided all the food, cake, beverages, linens, and rental furniture decor. They were a breeze to work with, they completely customized our menu to stick with the BBQ/comfort food we wanted. 

When it comes to the day-of everything went off without a hitch thanks to all my amazing vendors. We had a small 60 person wedding with just close friends and family. It was very important to us to keep it personal and intimate, so we had my husbands best friend that he was in the Marines officiate our ceremony, which made it perfect.  The reception was just as amazing, from the great food, flowers, music, and company it’s definitely a day we will remember forever. And now can relive it everyday with our amazing video and pictures we have. Our videographer was such a breeze to work with and really captured the pure emotion and joy of that day and I can’t thank him enough for that. "

Situated just east of here in Ramona, at 2,400′ elevation and bathed in Southern California sun, Milagro Winery [and Organic Farm!] enjoys warm days and cool nights, an idyllic climate for producing flavorful grapes. Our 110 acres includes drip-irrigated, drought-tolerant vines, with 11 different varietals, an organic farm, abundant fruit and nut orchards and a stunning crush house and wine cave. Tucked into the Ramona Valley, our property features a naturally rolling landscape dotted with impressive granite boulders and Coast Live Oak trees and is nourished by deep onsite wells and granite-rich soil. Milagro embodies the essence of a commitment to working in harmony with the land. 

Winery Wedding Celebrates with Family, Culture, and the Perfect Finish Line!

This lovely Orfila Winery wedding is the perfect blend of love, culture, great food and fun for our Wedding Crush Wednesday feature! Originally from Evian, France, Kevin met Mariesa in 2013 while living in New York City. Kevin proposed on the beach in Hawaii in 2015 after competing in his first Ironman World Championship. As a nod to how much triathlon is part of their life, the couple made their grand entrance into the reception by breaking through finisher tape!! The couple also very much wanted to incorporate and honor elements of both Kevin's French heritage and Mariesa's Filipino heritage throughout the wedding - they did so with both French and Filipino decor, language, traditions and delicious food from both cultures throughout the day.  And we have to note that Kevin wore one of our favorite looks for the groom; a very French, very gorgeous, blue suit...which to us is a tour de style!

30 some years ago, 5217 miles separated Mariesa and Kevin at birth. And somehow all those thousands of miles of separation matter not, because on balmy New York City summer night in July 2013 the world brought them together. As destiny would have it, the very 5217 miles match the same numbers as this international couple's wedding day, 052017!  Team Portmann is now embarking with Kevin as a first year pro competing in triathlon living in Oceanside, with his Sherpa Mariesa by his side. Go team Portmann!
