Lara + Chris – Ponte Winery Wedding

Lara and Chris had a beautiful springtime Ponte Winery Wedding in Temecula’s beautiful wine country. The day was just beautiful with amazing weather and just a wonderful ceremony and reception. The two got ready in the stone houses that the venue provides. The guys hung out and played corn hole on a personalized set. Lara had a sweet moment with her mom and her mom helped her with her beautiful dress. Lara and Chris had their first look and it was so cute, they were both so excited and happy!

We met Lara and Chris because we filmed Chris’ brother’s wedding a few years back! So cool getting to see our former couples again, we just love that. The ceremony backdrop was full of vineyards and beautiful skies. We love how Ponte Winery does weddings because even though they still keep their tasting room open, they keep the ceremony and reception blocked off so that couples can still have intimate and private events. I loved the colorful flowers on the vineyard backdrop, so pretty!

The reception was also beautiful, decked out in flowers and cute table signs that showed Chris and Lara at each age corresponding with the table number. This is such a cute idea to get people moving around the room and skip a growing up slide show. The reception was so fun! The bridal party had an epic grand entrance with everyone getting into it, and the speeches were pretty funny with a lot of brother razzing going on. They danced for hours after all the events and there were some really fun dancers out there!

We loved working with these two and I hope you enjoy their wedding film!

From the father of the bride:

“Tell them they did a spectacular job on the video productions – their artistic sense is amazing, and their camera work fantastic.  Even my close friend who works in Hollywood commented on some of the camera work, especially the focus pulls and slider shots.

You chose the best for your wedding!”

Thank you so much, that means the world!!
