Adam & Amanda, Wiens Winery Wedding, Temecula Ca
Meet Adam and Amanda. Adam is a Long Beach Fireman, and Amanda is finishing her Ph.D. as a forensic psychologist. I’ve been waiting for this wedding all year.. since photographing their engagement shoot in Laguna Beach
. Not only were they fun to photograph, but Amanda let me know that she has a thing for shoes (don’t we all?) so I couldn’t wait to see what she would be wearing. She didn’t disappoint… Christian Louboutin and Jimmy Choo shoes make any girl envious. They married at Wiens Family Cellars in Temecula, Ca.
How They Met
Amanda’s older brother Scott attended Loyola Marymount University with Adam where they played water polo for LMU together for several years. Adam and Amanda saw each other in passing over the time they were in college at water polo games and such, though they never really got to know one another due to Amanda residing in Northern California. After Amanda moved down to Redondo Beach in the summer of 2008, Amanda and Adam became fast friends. In Amanda’s first month in town, her older brother had to go on a work trip to Japan for several weeks, and in an effort to be a good friend Adam took it upon himself to show Amanda around town! Within a few weeks, Adam and Amanda went on their first date on the Redondo Pier, and the rest is history!
The pair had been dating for two years when they took a three week vacation to Australia. During their first week while staying in Surfer’s Paradise, Adam had planned a surprise romantic private dinner on a boat cruising the waterways of Surfer’s Paradise. After a beautiful dinner, the two arrived back at their condo where Adam brought out two champagne glasses he had brought from home engraved with “Marry Me” on them! After handing Amanda her glass, he got down on one knee and proposed! It was a wonderful trip that will never be forgotten, I’m sure!
