IMG_6972

Congratulations to Megan and Jeremy!  These two are so much fun to be around because they are so affectionate towards each other.  They are NEVER not holding hands, cuddling, kissing, hugging etc…  It just is such a joy to see them display their deep love and care in a way that those that are around them can sense and enjoy!  Their wedding day was truly amazing.  It had a definite spring vibe, and the weather cooperated perfectly.

It has been a pleasure knowing them and we wish them the very very very best!!!!!

This is at the rehearsal.  According to Jeremy, Megan met all of the criteria for a "Good Woman"

Congratulations to Emily and Sam!  This was our official season opener for 2014, and if this wedding is any indication of what the rest of the season holds, it is going to be a spectacular year for weddings at the TBS Ranch!  Weather was PERFECT!  Emily and Sam are just to flipping adorable, as you will see from the photos, and it is clear that they have their priorities in order as well as the support needed from wonderful friends and family.  It was just such an amazing day, and we are so so so happy for them!

1/25/14 – Alyssa and Brandon – Redding Wedding Venue

IMG_6491

Congratulations to Alyssa and Brandon!

I have known Alyssa for a few years now because she has worked with Gwen Edwardson of Gwen Edwardson Events.  She has worked numerous weddings at the ranch, and it was such an honor that she chose the TBS Ranch as her Redding wedding venue.  When she asked for a January date, I asked her if she was nuts!  She is from this area and is well aware that it could have been 17° and snowing (kind of like Mo and Cade’s wedding on 12/7/13).  Alyssa was well aware of the risk she was taking, but had no choice.  Her fiance is in the Navy, and this was the only time of year that his schedule allowed.  Well, Alyssa and Brandon are truly blessed when it comes to the weather Gods.  Absolutely PERFECT spring???? day!  A perfect spring day end of January…are you kidding me!  Well, that is exactly what they got.  It was amazing.

Because Alyssa has worked the ranch for several events, she knew exactly what she wanted, and it was very well organized.  And, because of her experience with weddings, she knew that her day would be even more amazing with an event coordinator.  Who else would she choose but Gwen?  Gwen worked behind the scenes helping Alyssa with the details, but unfortunately could not be there day of because she had an unexpected family matter and had to travel.  Ashley Jones, another one of Gwen’s girls, stepped up to the plate and did an absolute amazing job making this day even more magical.

Etched in Elegance catered the event, Fast Lane provided the bar service, and Jon Thompson was the DJ.  What a great team!  Everyone was having a good time (=

We wish Alyssa and Brandon the very very very best!!!!!!!

Alyssa and Brandon on Friday at the rehearsal.  Are they just the most adorable couple or what?  Gotta love the boots.  She wore them with her wedding gown as well.

12/7/13 – Melissa (Mo) and Cade – Redding Wedding Venue

IMG_6234

Congratulations to Mo and Cade!!!!!  Their wedding gave a new definition to “white wedding”!  We had about 6″ of snow!!!  It was BEAUTIFUL!  The vibe was just so classic and wintery.  Several heaters in the barn kept it comfortable, and an indoor ceremony kept everyone dry.

Gwen Edsardon Events coordinated the event.  She had LOTS of helpers for this one because of the unexpected weather.  Everyone pulled together and turned this day into a beautiful memorable event.  The snow really added to the awesome vibe.  Etched in Elegance catered the event, Fast Lane was the bar,  Don Burton was the DJ, and Chameleon photographed.  What a team!  It was amazing.

Unfortunately, I did not get any close ups of Mo and Cade to share with you.  My camera battery went dead!  It was fully charged but went dead a lot faster than it normally does.  Maybe it had something to do with it being cold?  I will have to get some shots from Chameleon to share.  Can’t wait to see their photos!

Mo and Cade are such a lovely couple, and we wish them and their family the very very best!!!!!

IMG_6165

Congratulations to Leanne and Mark!  This is our official season ender for 2013.  We do have another wedding in December, but his was the official season ender.  What a great official season ender this was!  We have had so many amazing weddings this year, and this one was memorable.  Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year because of the russet colors and the crispness in the air.  This day had that fabulous vibe, and it was a happy vibe.  EVERYONE was smiling and so happy to be there (=

This was another wedding by Gwen Edwardson of Gwen Edwardson Events.  We have had her at the ranch for several in a row and it has been great!  She did a fantastic job (as always) bringing Leanne and Mark’s vision of their day to reality.  Etched in Elegance catered the event, JB’s did the beverage catering, Heather Armstrong photographed (she has photographed several in a row at the ranch, and LOVE having her), and Lynn Currie (a personal friend of the family) was the DJ.  It was just soooo beautiful, and fit them so well.  Leanne was just flipping radiant!!!  I don’t think I saw her once not smiling.

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

11/10/13 – Amy and Kurt – Redding Wedding Venue

IMG_5892Congratulations to Amy and Kurt!  When I met with Amy in mid September and she asked about a November date, I assumed she meant November, 2014.  I assumed wrong!!!  I am so happy that we were able to find a date for Amy and Kurt to have their wedding at the ranch.  AND…what a beautiful date it turned out to be!  We talked a lot about how to set up for a “rain” wedding if necessary, almost like we were expecting it.  Not only did it not rain, it was AMAZING. I have a feeling that even if it did rain, it still would have been amazing.  The love between these two is strong. Rain or shine, the force will always be with them (=

The vibe was rustic, but not too rustic, and very very very classic.  Amy was just such a stunningly classic bride!  Kurt is “ken doll” handsome, and these two just make such a perfect pair.  Gwen Edwardson from Gwen Edwardson Events was the coordinator.  She did a spectacular job (as always) bringing Amy’s vision to reality in such a short amount of time.  Etched in Elegance catered (yum), and Mark McAbee from Clearcut Entertainment was the DJ.  He is sooo talented!!!  EVERYONE commented on how beautiful this wedding was, and we feel so honored to have been a part of their day (=

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

When I arrived, Amy was with Kurt's daughters making their way to the carriage for some photos.  They look like Amy's mini me's!!!

IMG_5866

Congratulations to Kirstien and DJ!  The deeper we get into fall, the more of a fall vibe these weddings project.  This was the PERFECT day for this vibe.  The weather for all of our fall weddings this year has been AMAZING!  Shhhhh….don’t tell everyone or otherwise they will all move here and we will soon be like LA!  I can guarantee you that the vibe in LA yesterday did not hold a candle to Palo Cedro.

Gwen Edwardson from Gwen Edwardson Events coordinated this event and as always she does a spectacular job.  Gwen has a talent for getting a feel for her brides and carries out their dreams so well.  Just like the TBS Ranch, all weddings are different because of what the people make it.  They make it their own, and Gwen has such a talent for this.  Mike from Dill’s Deli catered the event, JB’s Beverage was the beverage caterer, and Don Burton was the DJ.  Great team for a great day, and a super great couple!

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