Brianna’s dress from BHLDN was a strappy A-line with a lace bodice and a tulle skirt adorned by a rhinestone belt, while Eric was looking quite sharp in his Navy Dress Uniform.
Says EMRY Photography [who really has a great eye for color!] "Brianna and Eric decided to do a “first look no look”, where they could exchange gifts they had for each other and say some last minute words to each other before it was time for I-do’s. Brianna made her way from the bridal suite to Eric waiting upstairs next to the awesome antique fighter plane located in the loft of Aviation. It was touching to see them both holding back tears standing back to back.
The time came to head across the bridge to the ceremony site, where florist Romy Abouni blew everyone away with her art. The rustic feel she brought to the arrangements tied in beautifully with the rocky mountain backdrop, featuring splashes of orange, yellow and dusty blue. Being that Eric is from Chile, many of his family and friends who made the long trek to San Diego for the wedding are Spanish speaking, so it was really cool that the ceremony was recited in both English and Spanish for all to enjoy.
After the ceremony guests enjoyed cocktail hour while the couple and photographer EMRY did some off roading to catch some epic golden hour photos atop the rocks overlooking the property until it was time for the grand entrance. Entering through the antique doors into the reception site at Aviation Vineyards is like entering into a secret garden and unlike anything you will find in San Diego. The ambiance set by a overhead ceiling of market lights strung from tree to tree sets the mood for the love and laughter to come that night. Being San Diego wedding photographers people outside of San Diego always assume, Warm Warm Warm year round, well this night was a little on the colder side, but thanks to some heaters placed throughout the space, the drinks flowing, tasty warm food from the in house caterer Temecula Catering, and a dance floor that was rocking all night, everyone stayed comfortably warm. Music was provided by the talented Adam Trigg from Pacific Entertainment in Temecula, CA . And for those who aren’t the dancing type, or just needed a breather, we provided our photo booth where guests could get a keepsake print of themselves, and paste a copy of their images into a album for the couple along with a little message for the newlyweds."
The night came to an end and the couple made their way across the bridge greeted by a long tunnel of sparklers as their guests saw them off to their awaiting chariot (Mitzi’s convertible).
