This last weekend I headed out to Temecula to Wedgewood Galway Downs for the wedding of Mike and Stephanie, this was my first time at this venue and it is such a beautiful location for a wedding. Mike and Stephanie said their “I do’s” by the pond surrounded by there family and friends. All eyes where on Stephanie as she made her grand entrance to the ceremony in a horse-drawn carriage, before walking down the aisle to Mike. It was a beautiful ceremony full of laughter and joy.

It was an amazing day and an equally amazing wedding with some of the nicest, funniest people that I have had the pleasure of working with. Congratulations you two!
