Intimate Wedding Editorial at Avensole Winery in Temecula California

One of the beautiful things about intimate weddings is the ability to connect. With your guests and with each other on the day that your new beginning starts. I loved participating in Adorn Collective’s vision for creating an intimate, romantic wedding editorial with this sentiment in mind, earlier this spring, at Avensole Winery in Temecula, California. 

Keeping the details simple, yet thoughtful and Tuscan-inspired. 

And allowing plenty of time to enjoy the sunset over the vineyards that, quite honestly, fool you to believe you’re sipping wine overlooking the Tuscany countryside.

If you’re looking for an idyllic winery wedding venue near Orange County, and one that can nod to Italian heritage & beauty, Avensole Winery is a lovely venue to consider in your wedding planning options.

I always recommend dining Al Fresco (vs the onsite ballroom) so you can enjoy the sunset & then dance the night away under the stars with twinkle lights strung throughout. 

Enjoy these favorites from Temecula (and this STUNNING Lihi Hod wedding dress)!
