California Winery Wedding: Tim & Jonah
November 15, 2014
The story of Tim and Jonah began on an online dating app during the summer of 2010. They exchanged messages and emails, and a few weeks later phone numbers so they could text. Jonah asked Tim to meet one evening, but he was swamped with work.

Luckily, Jonah tried again a few days later and Tim, having decided he wasn’t going to meet a great guy always spending his time at work, accepted.
Engaged on January 22, 2012, Tim purchased a ring from Tiffany’s before the couple’s trip to Europe and kept it hidden in his carry-on bag. One evening, over a bottle of wine at the Eiffel Tower, Jonah dropped to one knee and proposed to Tim! Jonah initially didn’t understand why Tim began laughing (after accepting, of course!) – it was clear that the engagement was meant to be.
A Temecula Winery Wedding
Temecula was a natural venue choice. Tim and Jonah regularly visited friends in the area and traveled there at least four times each year. They chose Mount Palomar for the amazing views, excellent service, and overall options. They had a great experience at the winery and pledge to remain lifelong wine club members.
A Little Touch of Paris
Little touches of Paris were included throughout the wedding details, including the couple’s Save the Dates, invitations, guest seating cards, and décor. Tim’s favorite detail was the response card included with the invitation. It was made to look like an old Parisian postcard. Patrick Caraos of Trick Grafix developed the concept and designed the paper goods.
