Cat and Justin had a gorgeous intimate wedding at a private estate in Murrieta, surrounded by local vineyards. Their red, black, and white color scheme worked perfectly with all the fresh greenery around.
Isn’t this just perfect weather for a wedding? It was a pretty hot day but cooled a bit right around ceremony time. The bride’s brother served as their officiant. The guests and the bride and groom all made jokes and had a great sense of humor. At the end of the ceremony, they even gathered for a selfie at the altar.
Since this was an earlier ceremony, there was a lot of intense sunlight, but it was a fun challenge to work with. The light hit my lens in such a way that many of the ceremony photos had rainbows in them! I could’ve edited them all out, but I kept some because I actually love the way they look!
I love a good Southern California sunset! The pinks and purples were especially magical behind the poolside reception and string lights. An added SoCal bonus was that the comfortable weather lasted well into the evening!
