Armina & Elijah’s Temecula Wedding

Armina and Elijah told us how phenomenal their wedding was going to be way back when we did their engagement shoot at the Griffith Observatory…and they weren’t lying one little bit. Tucked away in the backroads of Temecula, they had their ceremony at the Mission San Antonio de Pala, a beautiful church built in 1816 with stunning Spanish-style architecture. Set to mariachi music echoing through the rafters, the ceremony was sweet and romantic with the priest reading letters that the couple had written to each other. After the ceremony, everyone traveled to the expansive Silverado Ranch Estate for food, dancing, and fun. We were blown away by all of the incredible details that Armina had dreamt up and executed. She did everything from design her dress and accessories to all of the table decor, florals, wedding favors, paper elements…no wonder she has started her own company called Adorned! With a shop where brides can source all of their beautiful bespoke gowns and accessories to a full on planning committee, they can do it all! We were so ecstatic to be joining this couple on their wedding day and to experience the love and respect they have for each other, and we can’t wait to see what these two do with their bright shining future!
