SoCal Wedding Venues | 2023 Highlights

First of all, THANK YOU to all my brides, grooms, and couples who had me capture their memories in 2023! It was a great year with so many amazing weddings, engagements and couple sessions, family mini sessions, and even a newborn shoot. It was tough to pick a few weddings to highlight, but keep scrolling to see a few of my favorites from some beautiful SoCal Wedding Venues from 2023!

The Smith Wedding

Madisyn and James’ wedding at the Grove in Redlands was just one of the many weddings at this location that I was able to shoot. This venue provides a blank slate for couple to totally DIY their wedding. I love the ceremony site with its beautiful built in arbor and wide view of the San Bernardino Valley Mountains.

The Marquette Wedding

This wedding at Pymm Ranch in Temecula was such a beautiful day. The venue is set on a very large ranch that has plenty of room for all your guests! I specifically loved all of the little details and colors from this wedding. The minimal vintage table decor was my favorite!

The Overman Wedding

Windmill Canyon Ranch in Beaumont is a beautiful venue nestled in rolling hills. Completed with an authentic barn, this venue is perfect for country weddings. The sunset photo spot at this venue is AMAZING. There is a beautiful view of the valley and you really get the full sunset, especially in the summer time! A fun moment from this wedding was their cake cutting. The groom went for the face smash and she got him back!

The Allsup Wedding

Maria and Wade’s wedding day at The Homestead in Oak Glen was one of my favorites! There are so many amazing moments from this day and I absolutely adore this venue! I love that it is an all-inclusive and the staff is so attentive. Just one of my many highlights from this day that I loved was that the bride wanted to do a first look with the groomsmen and ICED them!

The Starkey Wedding

Kyle and Kayla’s Escondido wedding took place at Stone Brewery, a place that is important and special to them. I love that they chose a wedding venue that meant so much to them and their relationship! My favorite special touch from this wedding day was the bubbles during their recessional! It was such a cute and fun touch to their celebration of just saying “I do”!

Each of these weddings, plus all the others that aren’t shown, are so special to me and I’m SOOO thankful for each and everyone of you for letting me be part of your day! In 2024 I’m looking forward to all the couples that I will be able to capture and be a small part in creating lasting memories! Along with weddings planned at more SoCal wedding venues, one of my goals for the New Year is to book an out-of-state wedding!
