Karen & Anthony tied the knot in Fallbrook, CA at Tivoli Italian Villa on a beautiful November Friday surrounded by the most fun group of friends and family! Their wedding felt romantic, classic, and timeless with white roses, candles, and twinkle lights. Once the dancing started, it didn’t stop until K&A’s flower petal exit. You know its a good party when the egg rolls make it onto the dance floor! Jax with Trademark Venues and Kaitlin with Le Vie Events created a beautiful day that could not have run more smoothly. Having a venue coordinator and a bridal assistant ensured that everything was taken care of so that Karen and Ant could savor their day. Karen’s hair and makeup by Kirsten Gavina was timeless and natural, she was glowing all day. Karen’s dress from Love&Lace Bridal with buttons all the way down the back was so stunning AND she could dance in it! Speaking of….DJ Mojoe kept even myself and the video team (Sam&Sibella) dancing. Extra special thank you & shout out to my second photographer Coral Powell Photography who is also available for weddings and lifestyle sessions! To start off, a few gems of this venue and K&A’s classic and romantic details.
K&A got ready at Pechanga resort nearby, and did finishing touches in the beautiful bridal suite and barrel room at Tivoli. These were the most gorgeous getting ready spaces I’ve seen this year! They exchanged pre-wedding gifts and had the sweetest first look in Tivoli’s secret garden.
K&A’s bridal party was FUN and so down to create some amazing group photos. When we suggested tossing Anthony in the air, his friends were all for it. Meanwhile, Karen’s girls got a pre-ceremony round of tequila shots. There was no shortage of booze at this wedding and I am HERE FOR THAT!
Another fun group shot (lol) we were able to get is a wedding party tunnel, save that one if you’re getting married in 2023 😉
Anthony danced into their ceremony like he’d been ready for this moment his whole life, and Karen could not stop smiling walking down the aisle. Tivoli Italian Villa has these twinkle lights in the tree vines above the ceremony space, which was seriously magical as the sun got lower. They exchanged personal vows that got everyone choked up, and danced back down the aisle ready to party!
Tivoli has no shortage of places to take amazing bridal portraits. The secret garden, the arches around the reception space, the road overlooking the vineyards and the mountains, and then twinkle light forest were the ones that caught my eye first thing.
CONGRATULATIONS to Karen & Anthony and thank you for letting me be a part of your day! This was my final wedding of the year, and the reception could not have been a more fun way to end my 2022 season. It was wild and I loved it. We also made sure to take some after dark shots of K&A in the barrel room, and get them behind the DJ station with DJ Mojoe! Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions about this venue or are in the process of planning a 2023 or 2024 wedding – I’d love to hear about it!!
Molly!!!! You’re the best! I’ve recommended you to anyone I heard was getting married in SoCal! You made our day so special and we couldn’t imagine having anyone else take our pictures! Thank you so much again!
Ant!!! You guys are the best! Wishing you two so much happiness and the best first year married!
