A fun and delightful wedding day in Murrieta and Temecula, California for Charisse and Garrett, captured in a great collection of photos that we loved creating. Their splendid day of Murrieta and Temecula wedding photography started with their ceremony in the city of Murrieta at St. Martha Catholic Church, then Abbott Manor in Temecula for more wedding photos and the couple’s reception.

Located about an hour and a half north of our photography studio in San Diego, California, St. Martha Catholic Church had all of the lovely features a couple could want captured in church wedding photography. From the architecture, tall ceilings, marble floors,  to the  contemporary environs of the church, each element helped compliment the couple’s ceremony of their Murrieta wedding.

Charisse and Garrett’s wedding ceremony also featured many of the traditional catholic wedding elements, including the processional, various readings, presenting flowers to a side alter dedicated to Mary, and of course the vows and ring ceremony. With these and other elements of their ceremony completed and photographed, the couple were pronounced married and with great joy walked past their guests down the aisle to complete their wedding ceremony.

The next part of their day of Murrieta and Temecula wedding photography called for various combinations of family photos.  With respect to the church we created a nice collection of wedding photos near the alter inside of the church. This part of the wedding day didn’t take too long so we were soon off to Abbott Manor in nearby Temecula. For the trip to Abbott Manor, the couple had arranged for transportation in a fine old Rolls Royce Silver Cloud.

Upon arriving at Abbott Manor, it was time for some creative and posed photos with Charisse and Garrett. We started first with wedding photography with the Rolls Royce, then more photos amidst the nice landscaping at Abbott Manor. This lead us into the line up for the wedding party’s Grand Entrance, and the commencement of the couple’s wedding reception.

The bouquet toss, as well received as it was delivered

The couples wedding reception was full of fun with all of the nice toasts, dancing, food and decor. And speaking of food, the deserts and wedding cake were divine and beautifully created. It’s a wonder guests didn’t start eating these first. The traditional first dance, father-daughter dance, and mother-son dance were some of the many important wedding moments we photographed, and so too was the money dance, and wedding bouquet and garter toss.
