Europa Village Temecula California Winter Wedding


Europa Village Temecula is a small taste of France, Spain and Italy, offering three different wineries and a resort on location. This charming spot transports you into an old-world village offering a one-of-a-kind experience with delicious food and unique vintages. 

When Sabrina + Rose first reached out and inquired about their dream winter vineyard wedding at Europa Village Temecula I was elated. Instantly you could feel the love and respect they had for one another. 

Their favorite season is winter, so they decided that a January wedding would be the perfect time to celebrate. 

Instead of having a ceremony + wedding on the same day, they decided to elope privately at the courthouse a month before the wedding. So their wedding day was purely about celebrating their love for one another and enjoying spending time with family + friends. 

As soon as the day started, it was a cloudy + overcast day. The whole drive down I was worried about it raining and them having to pivot their outdoor wedding to plan b. There were some sprinkles on and off the whole day, but ultimately the rain stayed away and these two got to celebrate their love underneath the moon and stars surrounded by their closest family + friends. 

**my tip to all photographers** make sure to pack extra clear umbrellas in your wedding gear. You never know when you’re going to need it, even if you obsessively check the weather app. 

Europa Village Temecula was an incredible venue with amazing staff, delicious food and the coordination was on point. Given that it was winter, the vineyards weren’t full, but even so there were some really amazing areas for couples portraits. I think my favorite place was the staircase + tasting room. 

Sabrina + Rose have shared so many memories together of traveling + sharing new experiences over the last seven years. I wish you two a lifetime of more adventures together and I hope you two continue to fall more in love each anniversary.
