California Rustic Wedding at Cordiano Winery

September 18, 2020 | riley

High school sweethearts Taylor and Tyler’s rustic wedding at Cordiano Winery was the perfect mix of romantic and whimsical. The couple hired Sisti & Co. to help them create a day that was an authentic celebration of their years of love. With soft pink decor, an abundance of pink and white flowers, and lush greenery, the couple’s vision of an intimate day at a winery came to life in a truly breathtaking way.

If romantic bridal fashion is your thing, we can’t wait for you to see Taylor’s Willowby by Watters a-line lace tulle gown paired with sparkly floral Badgley Mischka heels. The dress perfectly matched the dreamy vibes of the day. With all of the thoughtful goodness, we’re thankful that talented photographer and Junebug member Kami Olavarria was there to capture every sentimental detail—including portraits with the family dogs.

The Couple:

Taylor and Tyler

The Wedding:

Cordiano Winery, San Diego, California

A Memorable First Look

The most memorable part of our day was the first look. We went back and forth on whether the first time we’d see each other that day would be at the ceremony or during a first look. Both shaking, and tears falling as soon as we saw each other—we are so over the moon that we chose to make that a special moment for just us.  It was a moment of excitement and relief at the same time that our day was finally here, and it was just getting started.

Personalizing the Ceremony With A Close Officiant

Neither of us are religious and we wanted our ceremony to still hold that level of importance. We chose a mutual best friend of ours to officiate. He did such an incredible job—you could feel the love, friendship, and humor. Everyone said that our ceremony was “totally us,” and we wouldn’t want it any other way.

A Sweet Wedding Day Surprise

I surprised my new husband with a gelato cart during the reception. It was worth it when I saw him dancing his little butt off with a cup of mint chocolate chip gelato and a huge smile!
