A Paso Robles Wedding with so much personal flair, it made my heart melt to see two beautiful families come together as one, celebrating the love the ties Lorena and Matt together. As they were planning, it was extremely important to them to create a day that upheld and celebrated the traditions from both the Mexican and American side of their relationship. I can’t say it enough, it was such a privilege to be apart of the day. One of my favorite things about their wedding was the mariachi band, Mariachi Voces Tapatías, playing throughout their wedding Ceremony at San Miguel Mission and during cocktail hour at Four Sister’s Ranch Vineyard & Winery. Their music was so beautiful and they certainly knew how to bring an extra level of joy and life to the day.
Lorena’s dress was phenomenal! It was a dream with a exquisite veil to compliment. Her dress was designed by Allure Bridal, purchased from Elegant Lace Bridal in San Jose, alterations to perfection by Elegant Bridal Alterations in Paso Robles. She was absolutely stunning in every way. The lovely Roxy Martinez did her hair + makeup and the flowers for the day were from Skyline flowers.
Their ceremony was held at The Mission in San Miguel. After moving to California, learning the history of the state and the Missions, my heart becomes enthralled with every nook and cranny of these buildings and their story. The church was built in 1821 and instantly walking in you are blown away by the traditional Salinan painting on the walls and fixtures, juxtaposed with Roman paintings of the saints. The church is stunning and was the perfect backdrop to Lorena and Matt’s ceremony.
After a few photos at the Mission, we all ventured to Four Sister’s Ranch Vineyards & Winery just a couple miles away. The Vineyard is located at the top of this hill that provide views of miles of Paso Roble’s and San Miguel’s wine country. The clouds broke allowing the sun to dance throughout the vineyard, creating an even more magical evening. Bill Motimer did a fabulous job coordinating the day, making each element perfect. Popolo Catering served up exceptional appetizers and dinner per usual. And a friend, Elizabeth Rivas made a stunning four tier cake while Sey from Central Coast Premier Entertainment kept the guests dancing into the night.
Lorena + Matt, thank you so dearly for letting me document this day for you and your families. Your love is so strong and absolutely beautiful; it has been such an honor to get to know the two of you. Please don’t be strangers and I wish you the most love and joy imaginable on this new adventure. You two are perfect. xoxo
