Murrieta Intimate Wedding

Getting to know a couples' love story is one of the most gratifying experiences I have as a wedding photographer! Nichole + Vince met on the dating app Coffee Meets Bagel. From the moment Nichole first reached out to me about their wedding, I adored them! Nichole proposed to Vince by making a board game / escape room that was tailored to their favorite foods and experiences. Their Murrieta intimate wedding was such a lovely event - a brunch wedding that included their closest friends and family, every detail tailored to take into account their personalities and interests, and incredible moments throughout the day! I was so lucky to there to capture their wedding!

I started off the day capturing some of their details! Nichole and Vince love travel and many of their details reflected their trips together.

LOVE this map-inspired bouquet! 😍

Vince had some very cool cufflinks!

Nichole was getting ready inside her parents' house.

How freaking GORGEOUS is Nichole?

Nichole + Vince did a quick first look before the ceremony! Love these moments!


Nichole + Vince's reception was so beautifully decorated! There were touches of all their experiences there. Vince let me know he made all the little paper planes himself! A labor of love!

Nichole and Vince had the yummiest brunch food! When Nichole first reached out to me, I noted how early her wedding ceremony time was and checked back with her to make sure it was right! She said yes, she and Vince were morning people and wanted a morning wedding! Nothing to be mad about with these yummy food choices!

Hello cutie!

Nichole and Vince's first dance on the patio was beautiful - I particularly loved the moment when Nichole showed off her new hardware!

All the littles were loving on the princess bride :)

Nichole and Vince had a NEWSPAPER printed for their wedding! How freaking adorable and the perfect wedding keepsake!

My favorite thing about an intimate wedding day is more time for portraits! I got to spend some time wandering around the property with the giddy newlyweds!

Nichole and Vince are book lovers! Actually, at their engagement session we traded book recommendations! I'm a huge sci-fi fan so this Andy Weir book is next on my list!

And then of course Vince had to make everyone tear up by breaking out the guitar!

I can't think of a more perfect way to end a wedding than with a piñata!

Congratulations, Nichole + Vince!
