A winery wedding! I was excited to coordinate their wedding at this venue – who doesn’t love wine? Cathy’s and Ray’s wedding had over 300 people in attendance. The ceremony was held at the historical, San Luis Rey Mission in Oceanside. Beautiful artwork, architecture, history, and the LONGEST aisle I’ve ever seen – it was standing room only! After the ceremony, the guests proceeded to Orfila Winery in Escondido. The cocktail hour and reception were held outside in the arbor and in a tent decorated with tiny, sparkling lights overlooking the gorgeous vineyards. What a view! The bartenders poured great wines from Orfila’s vineyard, while the staff circulated with delicious appetizers. Cathy’s father surprised her with a song that he wrote and sang for their father/daughter dance. It was so touching! Atmosphere DJ provided the dance tunes that kept the crowd rocking the rest of the night. Once again, Kendra Duerst was in the midst of the dancing crowd, capturing it all on camera. Joel from Pristine Visual caught all the key and spontaneous moments on video. Cheesy Photobooth was also a BIG hit. They provided scrapbooking materials for the guests to make their own pages with their pictures for the bridal couple’s memory book. Everytime I passed by the booth, there was a laughing line of guests offering boisterous encouragement to those posing in the photobooth. I’m sure Cathy and Ray will enjoy the creativeness of the book when they see it! Great wine, food, music, entertainment and cheers to a great couple! The only complaint was that the evening went too quickly!

Orfila Winery – Cathy and Ray

I am coordinating Cathy’s and Ray’s wedding in a few weeks, so of course, I had to tour the reception venue a week ago. This one just happens to be at Orfila Winery in Escondido. What a beautiful view of the vineyards! Naturally, we sampled a few wines in their tasting room to get a feel of the location. Can’t wait to celebrate with this great couple!
