Bel Vino Temecula Winery Wedding

This Bel Vino Temecula Winery Wedding features some of the all time cutest DIY elements!  Flower girls in leotards and bright purple tutus?!  Yes, please!  The most adorable ring bearers in black & white stripe suspenders, high top converse, and purple bow ties?!?  Handmade wedding wands with baby bells for guests to shake?  Oh, yeah!  Not to mention a super stunning bride with a bird cage veil and a wedding party with loads of personality.  Needless to say, we were in photog heaven :)  We also loved how this winery had an abundance of natural settings to shoot from the rolling vineyards with sunset views to large pepper trees and a great lawn for the reception!


“Acqua Photo is the BEST!!!

Photography to me was one of the most important elements to our wedding, and where I was willing to devote a large portion of our budget. Being the artistic one, my husband left the research up to me. I looked at what felt like hundreds of photography websites, but still wasn’t satisfied. I knew what I was looking for, but couldn’t describe it. Then I came across Acqua Photo (on Yelp) – their reviews were fantastic! I checked out their website and was blown away – they had “it”!!!

I met with Jen & Shane by myself, as my husband was working. They were great at that first meeting – passionate, fun, energetic, and made me feel really comfortable – everything I was looking for! Immediately as I walked away I knew I had to have them!!!

Working with Jen & Shane was soo great! Jen answered all of my questions, no matter how small (or ridiculous). And they were totally willing to work within my budget; we skipped the engagement session to add on prints and also the Studio booth, so I got everything that I wanted!

Everyone at my wedding commented on how great the photographers were. They put us at ease, weren’t pushy to get “the” shot, and actually made getting photographed a pleasure (which is big for me since I hate having my picture taken). Their passion and enthusiasm really rub off on you throughout the day.

And the photos… AMAZING!!! EVERYONE that has seen our pictures has been blown away, they are beautiful!

The Studio Booth was awesome and I was so happy that we were able to include it. That was a huge hit with everyone! Everything about it was simple, easy, and fun. The pictures from that are hilarious!!!

We absolutely recommend Acqua Photo to everyone! We love Jen & Shane and can’t wait to have them capture more amazing moments. I think my husband said it best: at one point during the night he turned to me and said, “Whatever you paid for them – it was worth it!”
