9/22/14 – Melissa and Dustin – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Melissa and Dustin!!!  Melissa and Dustin followed the trend of very low maintenance on my behalf.  I only met Melissa once, when she booked.  She had a vision, and Stacy from Old Beginnings was the coordinator that worked with her long distance to put this lovely event together.  It was the perfect reflection of Melissa, who was a vision in her lovely dress.  LOVED the bright happy vibe of this event.  The pop of bright pink was so refreshing, and the day was beyond lovely to boot.  All and all such a great time and we are so happy for them.

We wish them the very very very best!!!!!

9/21/14 – Jaclynn and Roy – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Jaclynn and Roy!!!!  I don’t know where to start with the story of Jaclynn and Roy.  They were actually booked for September, 2013.  She wanted a Saturday, but they were all booked, so she settled on a Sunday.  On top of not having the day she wanted, some of the vendors that Jaclynn wanted to work with were booked. Instead of settling for less than her perfect day, she simply postponed it for a year!  So, I have known these LOVELY people for over 2 years.  They have become friends.  That said, you can imagine my heartbreak when I found out that they lost their home to the Boles Fire that destroyed their neighborhood in Weed.  They lost their home on Tuesday, September 16, and were married just 4 days later on September 20.  You would think that they would postpone the wedding again, but not these two.  Nothing was going to take their day away from them.  Instead of dwelling on the negative, they looked on the bright side of it all.  First, they are both OK, second, they saved the dress and the ring (more on that later), and third, rebuilding your home starting from scratch, replacing everything from underwear to furniture is a great way to start fresh!!!  I guess you could say that they proved that they can make it through the “for worse” part of their vows just a few days before they got to recite them.

Jaclynn got a frantic call from Roy telling  her that he had 15 minutes to get out of the house.  He wanted her input on what he should try and save.  Of course, Jaclynn answered “the dress and the ring”!!!!  Roy did not know where the dress was because he wasn’t supposed to see it, but with her coaching he found it.  AND…what a beautiful dress it was.  No wonder she wanted to save it.  It would have been so sad had it been lost.  Unfortunately, they did lose all of the other wedding accessories.  Food, alcohol, party favors, water, decorations, etc….  When the local community found out about this, they all pitched in and made sure that they were covered.  All of the wine was donated from Anselmo, beer  and water from Holiday Market, Gaia Hotel stepped up by comping their rooms and upgrading to a suite.  They had a vintage car  donated (in their cobalt blue color) to escort them.  The knot donated all of the party favors and even had all of the guests glasses engraved.  I know that there was a lot more but I am not sure of the details.  I want to thank EVERYONE involved for all they did to make this day amazing for Jaclynn and Roy.  Truly amazing community we live in, and they all stepped up to help a truly amazing couple.

I had calls from all sorts of news media wanted to air their story.  I know that it was aired locally, on Fox News Sacramento, a news station in Medford, and in San Francisco.  I have been to busy to try and locate the stories, but I can’t wait to see them.  I also have to mention that I was ever so grateful to Gwen Edwardson for organizing the donations and news media.  Since Gwen coordinated this event, I had to direct all calls her way so she would be in the loop.  As always, she did an amazing job.  Jaclynn;s dream day was just PERFECT.  Relaxed, classy, and beautiful, the PERFECT reflection of her.

We wish them the very very very best!!!!!!!

9/6/14 – Wendy and Ken – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Wendy and Ken!  I only met with them for about 10 minutes prior to their wedding day, so I don’t know them very well at all, but what I do know I like a lot.  Wendy was the most laid back relaxed not stressed out bride that I have worked with yet.  They only time I spoke with Wendy is when I had a question for her!  She must be super organized because all went off without a hitch.  LOVELY day, LOVELY bride, and LOVELY wedding.  Their ceremony was memorable.  The officiant clearly knew them and kept it light hearted and FUN.  From what I learned during the ceremony, the relaxed fun vibe I got from this lovely couple is the way they are in real life (not just wedding life, there is a difference).

We wish them the very very very best!!!!!

ps…have to mention that Ken’s niece, Crystal, got married at the ranch on April 9, 2011.  She attended this wedding with Adam, and their two adorable children.  I LOVE seeing my brides after their vows.  Especially when there are little ones involved.  FUN (=  I shot a family photo.  If you want to see Crystal’s wedding, here is a link.  http://tbsranch.wordpress.com/2011/04/14/4911-crystal-and-adam-elegant-outdoor-party/

This is Crystal and Adam, by 4/9/11 bride and groom. Their family has grown! It was so much for to see them!!! Crystal is Ken’s niece, so they were guests at the wedding.


8/30/14 – Tina and Walter – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Tina and Walter!!!!  I absolutely LOVED these two from the moment I met them.  They are so laid back and easy going.  They wanted to have a relaxed no fuss wedding, and that is exactly what they got.  The vibe was so refreshingly relaxed.  Tina kept the decor to a minimum because she did not want to take away from the rustic feel of the barn.  She loved the barn and wanted it to shine. Well, she was the one that shone!  She looked radiant and oh so happy!!!  Walter cleaned up nicely as well in his Military Whites and all of those medals. He shone as well! We thank Walter for his service to the country.

All in all this was such a fun day, and we wish Tina and Walter the very very very best!!!!!

8/12/14 – Samantha and Josh – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Samantha and Josh!!!!!  This was one of those really very low maintenance weddings on my behalf.  Josh is in the service, so I only met him at the rehearsal.  I corresponded with Samantha just a few times to gather details, so I did not get a chance to know them very well.  What I can tell you just from the short time I spent with them is that they are really really really in love, and that they are really really really good people.  LOVED knowing them both and their families.  Just wonderful people overall, and I am so happy that they celebrated their day at the TBS Ranch!

We wish them the very very very best!!!!!

8/2/14 – Tiffany and James – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Tiffany and James!!!  What a spectacular day!  The vibe was lively and happy, just like Tiffany and James.  LOVED the pale purple color and bright flowers.  It just screamed summer!  The weather was not over the top hot, and the swamp coolers in the barn kept everyone comfortable.  All and all such a lovely wedding.

We wish them the very very very best!!!!

7/27/14 – Elizabeth and Tim – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Elizabeth and Tim!!!  These two just deserve the best.  They are just such great people…respectful, thoughtful, and soooo nice.  It was a true pleasure knowing them both.  It is so apparent that Tim will do anything for his girl.  Every time I had a question, he was ever so thoughtful of her needs.  Anything she asked for, he was there.  Elizabeth was such a radiant glowing bride.  They are an amazing couple, and it was an amazing day!!!  They had the dove release which I LOVE.

It was a warmer day so the cake was in the fridge until the last minute.  I did not get a chance to take a picture of the cupcake display, or the cake on the counter that they were displayed on for the rehearsal.  They were so adorable, I had to take pictures of them in the fridge to share with you!!!

We wish them the very very very best!!!!!

7/27/14 – Kevin and Jennifer Engagement Party- Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Kevin and Jennifer!!  She said “YES”!!!!  Kevin sure surprised Jennifer when he planned an engagement proposal, and then a party with close friends and family to celebrate (only if she said “yes”).  Of course Jennifer would be crazy to turn him down.  What a total catch!  His organizational skills are amazing for pulling this off!!  AND..just the sheer fact that he went to all of this to propose.  Like I said, what a catch.  I am sure that Jennifer knows that she is a lucky girl (=

We wish them the very very very best!!!!

7/12/14 – Sarah and Scott – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Sarah and Scott!!!!  Sarah was incredibly low maintenance on my behalf.  She was so very easy going and wonderful to work with.  I LOVED the brunch wedding!  They had an early ceremony, 11 am, and brunch with mimosas!  It was totally different and really fun.  Who wouldn’t embrace a waffle bar, and endless bacon???  You would have to be crazy to say no to endless bacon!!!  It was a total hit.  Everyone was raving.  I am hoping this might be a trend…at least the endless bacon part!

Sarah enlisted the help of Gwen Edwardson.  As I have said before, I love Gwen for such selfish reasons, she makes my life easy!  Gwen did an amazing job (as always) bringing Sarah’s vision to reality.  It was sooo beautiful!  It had the shabby chic vibe that fit Sarah so well.  She was a vibrant and stunning bride!  I am sure that Scott knows how blessed he is to now call her his wife.

We wish them the very very very best!!!!!
