A Winery Wedding
Avensole Winery sits in the hills of Temecula and is a wonderful place to have a wedding. The ceremony area has a deep field view of the wineries of Temecula in the distance and the rows of grape trees with in proximity. Cocktails are usually had after the ceremony inside where they have a large bar serving, yes you guessed it, wine and beer. The reception room is intricately decorated with wall decor and fits roughly 150 people with a couple tables outside.
Matt & Morgan reached out to me to be their wedding DJ because I’ve done at least 5 weddings in Matt’s social group and I have known him since I was 8 years old. Matt had a history in the professional paint ball business as a player and as an announcer. He also was the officiate at a few of his friend’s weddings including his sister’s wedding at which I was also the wedding Dj at. I knew everyone at this wedding and went to high school with all the groom’s men. One of the groom’s men Shaun Joe was the DJ at all of our high school parties and was one of the first Djs I ever knew. These are good people.
Matt’s buddy Yoshi was the officiant who did an excellent job. The ceremony was perfect with both the bride and the groom reciting their handwritten vows to a tearful crowd. The cocktail reception got rowdy with old friends making new friends and family catching up while reminding about past memories. The dinner kicked off with a toast from the groom’s father Mark who was my little league coach. The few interruptions from the heckling groomsmen were challenged with verbal jabs by Mark. He really nailed it when he looked at his son Matt and said, “It’s about damn time.” The night went on as laughter and music filled the air while beer and wine filled the bellies. We ended with a group hug and then directions to the after party.
