Wedding

Temecula Elopement Photographer

Lindsey + Torin had a big wedding planned for June 2020 with their nearest and dearest in Lake Elsinore. When COVID hit, they knew they had to delay their celebration – but they didn’t want to delay getting married! To quote one of my favorite movies, When Harry Met Sally, “When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”

So they did what a number of couples are doing this year – they decided to keep their wedding date and get married in the presence of their closest family members, and plan for a celebration later in the year.  They chose a Temecula Airbnb property with incredible views, which ended up being the perfect setting! As a Temecula elopement photographer, I couldn’t have been more thrilled to capture their love in a more intimate setting!

Lots of couples are now altering their wedding plans – from delaying everything from several months to a year or more, having a minimony now followed by a traditional wedding, or foregoing the large wedding entirely with a planned elopement or micro wedding! Check out my article Your Guide to Temecula Elopements, Minimonies & Micro Weddings for more info on the different options to celebrate your wedding day!

MEET LLOYD! Lloyd was actually what first connected me to Lindsey + Torin! I’m probably one of the world’s biggest fans of Dumb and Dumber, and Lloyd is named after the infamous Lloyd Christmas! He was such a sweetie on the wedding day! And I was so thrilled Lindsey took the time to get some photos with him!

Lindsey + Torin opted to read their vows to each other before the ceremony! I’ve never seen this before and I thought it was so sweet!

Isn’t technology amazing? For Lindsey + Torin’s Temecula elopement, they were able to Zoom family and friends in so they could watch the ceremony! Such a great idea!

They also had their first dance on camera so their out-of-state guests could enjoy that as well :)
