The Tour de Muse has been a number of years in the making. With both of them in earning advance degrees (Lee, his MBA and Shelby her Doctorate in Physical Therapy) the two enjoyed cycling, traveling, wine tasting and the Anaheim Ducks (GO SHARKS!) in between classes and papers. One day, the two went to Pelican Hill Resort in Newport. Unbeknownst to Shelby, Lee was planning a special surprise… He dropped down on one knee and proposed – and it was all caught on camera by a professional photographer who then took them around for some fun proposal day photographs! On cloud nine, the two got right to planning their big day.
Bouncing between a SoCal and a NorCal wedding the two decided that a wedding in the southern part of the state was the best for everyone. Shelby and Lee’s wine country nuptials were beautiful. Choosing the beautiful Monte de Oro Winery in Temecula, guests from near and far came to witness a ceremony overlooking vines and dance the night away in the winery’s barrel room.
Following the ceremony, we went for a romp at sunset in the vineyards. Simply wonderful! Could not have asked for a more perfect evening. After we were all done, Lee and Shelby still had time to enjoy some quiet time by themselves before they were announced at the beginning of their reception!
