Vendor & Bride

As a wedding hairstylist for the past 22 years , I have been to hundreds of venues all around San Diego and Temecula. I’m honored to have been a part of many bride’s journeys in preparing for their big day. Being involved with a couples wedding and one of the most pivotal days of their lives has been the greatest gift and job I could’ve asked for as a career. For that, I am grateful.


After viewing so many venues over the years, I had a very clear picture of what I wanted if I were to ever get engaged. Once that day came, it was time for our venue search and all I wanted was the least stressful situation I could find. I had spent years hearing too many horror stories from past bride’s I’d worked with. And then I met a bride that told me about Villa de Amore and she began to list all of the amazing amenities they had to offer. I knew it was on my list of San Diego wedding venues to visit, and at the top for that matter. Knowing the Villa was an All-Inclusive Wedding Package is what really interested us. That was when I noticed my fiancé  become more excited and the stress start to unwind.  

The less researching we had to do on all the vendors, the better it would be all around for both him and myself. The minute we drove up and walked the property, it sold itself. From the gorgeous landscaping to amazing vineyard views, they have it all. The Villa has the perfect diversity for photography spots with cool vintage, tuscan and contemporary backdrops. To think it would all be ours was exciting and gave a whole new meaning to photography. With the Villa, your wedding pictures will be all you have dreamed of and more. I will cherish these forever.  Leah Marie photography and all their staff is extremely talented and easy to work with. I can only imagine that the other photographers and vendors are of the same quality. When you look at the hundreds of questions you could ask about with a venue like you do here: it’s amazing that the majority are already taken care of by the Villa.  As a vendor myself, I’ve noticed how the bridal parties feel relaxed and take in each moment in comparison to other venues where they feel like they have to be managing the day.

The staff truly understands how to select their vendors with the couple in mind. When David walked my husband and I around to view the property , we were in awe the whole time with what we saw and all the details provided. We fell in love with the property and couldn’t get over the fact that David’s parents used to call it their home. This venue is very unique in that it’s truly intimate and private. You don’t have to share your day with anyone but your family and friends and all 10 acres are yours. I didn’t hear that anywhere else and was blown away!

All of the key areas I looked for in a venue were checked off by the Villa. Being in the industry, it’s refreshing to see that the whole family is part of this business and they all work together to create the perfect environment for your magical day. All the staff is friendly and extremely professional. I have never seen a venue so organized and on top of every little detail so you can have all your little heart desires! 

When you choose this venue everything else just perfectly falls into place. All my Pintrest pins and Etsy ideas where all wrapped up in their prop storage room. When I saw all the gorgeous details I could choose to use at no extra cost, I couldn’t say no. This venue goes above and beyond to highly impress everyone who is part of your day. Even the food is delicious and you get great portion size for your guests. If you choose this venue you will 100% have the wedding of your dreams, you will feel like royalty and your guests will be super impressed too.

My guests at my wedding said “This was the one of the prettiest weddings they had ever been to” and “I loved how organized the staff was and how everything ran so smooth”. I’m truly blessed as the owner of Beauty Ever After and to keep working with  bride’s at the Villa to get them beautified and watch their dreams unfold on their wedding day.

This venue  impressed me and my expectations were exceeded, which are very high since I have seen it all. If you want a stress free wedding planning process this is the venue for you, everything is high quality and the complete package. If anything, I’m sad it’s over, but I will never forget everyone that helped make my dream become a reality!
