Riverbench Vineyard & Winery Luxury Fall Wedding in Santa Maria, California

Rylie and Tim celebrated in an incredible way this past weekend with their family and friends together! The girls got ready at Rylie’s parents’ house. Then they all loaded up in a limo and headed to the St. Louis de Montfort Church for the ceremony. Afterward, everyone made their way to a family winery in the heart of Santa Maria wine country. Riverbench Winery was a great spot to dance the night away.

And Heart Melting Events did a spectacular job building the space up from the ground up. A beautiful sail tent framed the tables and decor beautifully.

Their Story:

Rylie and Tim’s love story began all the way back when they were just seventeen years old. The two of them grew to become close friends during their time together at Saint Joseph High School. Despite the distance between them during their college years- many miles and even some states apart- Rylie and Tim’s relationship continued to thrive. After college graduation, the two decided to settle near their hometown of Santa Maria while Rylie attended her Master’s Program at Cal Poly.

Soon after, in 2019, they decided to take their relationship to the next level. They purchased their first home together in Paso Robles. Just last year, Rylie and Tim brought their pup Oliver home! After 7 years together on September 26th of 2020, Tim got down on one knee and asked Rylie to be his wife. From the start, there was never a doubt that these two were meant for each other!
