San Diego based wedding photographer

Equestrian, woodsy, elegant, rustic, east coast vibe, these are all terminology my couple Maggie and Jim Tselikis used when describing their wishes for their wedding this past February 2018 at Galway Downs, Temecula.

This property was the perfect backdrop to create a vision combining all these facets. We had an elegant metal arch draped in gorgeous soft colored flowers hung with quirky lanterns. This look was co-created by curator Madam Palooza a vintage rental company with the flowers designed by Soiree Floral Design.

Maggie wanted some form of equestrian touches so we used horseshoes for table numbers and farm tables for that rural feel, the tall statuesque centerpieces were just perfect for the high ceilings of Galway Downs reception room tying it all together.

Since the groom created and owns Cousins Maine Lobster (as seen on and picked up and invested in by Barbara Cochran from Shark Tank, who was also a guest Whoo hoo) Jim was in charge of the menu.

From the fresh oyster and seafood bar displayed in a vintage boat during cocktail hour, to the lobster bisque and surf and turf served at dinner the guests were eating well in the Temecula Hood.

The dramatic 3 tiered cake, classic and elegant was made by Bo-Cakes Confections. The bride looked absolutely dazzling with her hair and make-up created by Wonderpin Hair and Makeup Studio (The most awesome team of stylists).

My goodness Galway what a day!
