Alicia & Shan - Fazeli Winery Temecula Wedding

Russell John Films had the privilege of being a part of Alicia & Shan's special day on July 22, 2017. The two tied the knot at the beautiful Fazeli Cellars Winery in Temecula, California.

The Proposal
Shan planned a weekend in San Diego that Alicia was aware of for months. Turns out it ended
up being a proposal on the cliffs overlooking La Jolla at sunset and dinner following at Poseidon in Del Mar. The following day was spent with friends at the beach who came in from all over to help celebrate!
