Hope and Josh had their gorgeous Cordinao Winery wedding on 10-11-21, which I thought was the coolest wedding date! 10 plus 11 equals 21… get it? These two met back when Hope was hosting a housewarming party for a new roommate, and Josh was a mutual friend who showed up. And now they’re married and starting a family. So funny how life works, isn’t it?
Cordinao Winery in Escondido, California was the perfect wedding venue for a modern, rustic, and chic wedding day like this one. Surrounded by the prettiest rocky mountains, this venue is so beautiful and inviting! The couple had their first look wedding photos taken outside, and the venue created the prettiest intimate backdrop. The rustic indoor space (with all its exposed wood and stunning light) was perfect for the couple’s indoor ceremony and reception. Gorgeous fall-toned florals (including the bride’s bouquet) decorated both spaces and tied everything together so perfectly.
The couple looked absolutely stunning on top of everything! Hope wore a column-style, intricately beaded wedding dress, and Josh wore a gray tuxedo. I loved all the little details that went into their looks, especially Hope’s wedding ring, which was actually designed by her grandma! How cool is that?
The couple had their first dance to Jack Johnson’s Better Together, and then they and all their guests danced the night away on the reception dance floor. The night officially ended with a sparkler wedding exit (I love a good sparkler exit,) and it was the perfect finish to a wonderful wedding day.
Thank you, Hope and Josh, for trusting me to capture one of the most important days of your lives. Sending you and your families so much love!!
