Southern California Bride posted this wonderful photo blog of Lydia and Steve's Villa de Amore wedding.
"People love fairy tale love stories. “We both studied abroad in Paris and met during a rainstorm when we shared a taxi outside of the Louvre, and we’ve been madly in love ever since!” That sort of thing. For us, it wasn’t like that. Our relationship grew very naturally and gradually out of friendship. We met through a mutual friend about halfway through our studies at UC Berkeley, and we got to know each other over our remaining years there. We hung out together frequently, and the more we learned of each other, the closer we became. By the time we graduated, we were inseparable. It helped that our personalities have always been very compatible. We each got along well with the other’s friends, and at this point we basically just share them all :)" -bride..." see whole article

"...My favorite part of wedding planning was picking out the dress. As a lifestyle blogger, finding something unique that represented who I am was so important. I fell in love with Galia Lahav’s designs and after meeting her at a trunk show, knew I couldn’t wear anything else. The pearl encrusted bodice, low back, and abundance of tulle on my dress made for such a dreamy combination. The theme for our wedding unfolded from there!
The venue was the second most important part to us. We wanted a destination that our guests could enjoy since most of Matt’s side was from Chicago so we began our search in Temecula’s wine country. We stumbled upon Villa de Amore and knew almost immediately it was the perfect fit. Having just come back from a trip to Italy, the villa was the perfect memory of our travels and the architecture was absolutely stunning! The 360 degree vineyard views made for an incredibly romantic background too..." see whole article

However, they realized that important family and friends wouldn’t be able to share their wedding with them if they were to wisk off to Italy. Instead, brought a bit of Italy to them and opted for a gorgeous vineyard wedding at Villa de Amore that incorporated elements of a destination wedding in their décor.

Be careful what you wish for. As the day progressed, the clouds came in and got bigger and darker, with the blue sky gradually disappearing. The guests were seated over looking the lush vineyards of villa de amore in Temecula..." View Article

Villa de Amore made all my wedding dreams come true. The venue was beautiful and the staff was very professional. The all inclusive wedding is truly a fabulous idea, it allows the couple to have creative freedom yet still have access to reliable and trustworthy vendors. My husband and I loved everything about our day and feel blessed to have worked with Eileen and her family!
