Crystal & Nick: stunning Europa Village wedding
He was working as a personal trainer when he noticed a certain lovely business woman who frequented the gym. Meanwhile, she had noticed the attractive trainer, but didn’t know a thing about him. Her good friend decided to ask around the club about this trainer to find out whether or not he was a good guy – turns out, his reviews were positive. This is when Crystal asked Nick out, and we’re so happy she did!
I loved this wedding. As a photographer, the light and scenery at Europa Village Winery in Temecula were so much fun. But more importantly, I loved working with Crystal and Nick. We hit it off with these two as soon as we met them, and then I had so much fun with them last year when I took their engagement photos. Now after spending their wedding day with them, I can see that I’m not alone in my fondness for this couple. Never before have I heard so many vendors, from the venue to the florist, talk about what amazing people Crystal and Nick are to work with. I feel so fortunate that we were part of such a beautiful day, and that we’ve had the opportunity to get to know such a beautiful couple, inside and out.
Crystal and Nick decided to have a “first look” before their ceremony, which gave them the opportunity to have a few moments together, and get some photos taken, before all of the guests arrived.
I love his expression here
See what I mean? BEAUTIFUL couple! :-)
I had a little fun getting a few candids while Dad took formal photos of the wedding party
And now the ceremony. Crystal and her dad wait for the big moment.
The reception was held in the beautiful covered patio – misters kept guests comfortable in the afternoon heat.
Even the bustle photos were pretty enough to post! ;-)
Crystal and Nick’s choreographed first dance was truly outstanding!
Great party, great friends
I can’t say it enough – I’m so happy that we were able to work with Crystal and Nick. Thank you two so much for inviting us into your lives to help capture such a beautiful wedding (and a big thank you to Heather and Mike for referring us!)
So… maternity and baby photos? Yes? ;-)
