9/16/17 Ashley and Sonny

Ashley and Sonny chose Saturday September 16th as their wedding day at the Ranch! They became one big happy family in a matter of a simply perfect afternoon; with Ashley’s two sweet girls and Sonny’s two handsome young boys it was a wonderful blend of separate lives coming together. The day was filled with gentle touches of lace, burlap and soft pinks, while old glass doors with vintage keys were adorned all around. The aisle look absolutely beautiful with two of the glass doors as the entrance, leading Ashley and her Father up to Sonny waiting for her. Ashley is pretty inside and out, and her dress complimented her beauty entirely!  It was such a fun filled day with perfect weather and everyone having such a great time!  Wedding favors of delicious sweet honey were placed in vintage cabinets around the barn, it gave special meaning knowing the honey came from Ashley’s parent’s property in Anderson!  What an adoring couple and we are so happy for the two of you! Ashley and Sonny, we give you our heartfelt congratulations and wish many years of happiness as you begin this new life together!

9/10/17 Stacy and Chase

Stacy and Chase chose Sunday, September 10th for their wedding date at TBS. It was a fun and lively gathering bringing friends and family together who have not seen each other in years. When Chase met Stacy, the old cliche “you’ll just know” came true; he knew he met the one he wanted to spend the rest of his life with. The two of them immediately hit it off and became best of friends. Understanding Chase’s love for fishing this bride was not the least bit concerned when her groom and his groomsman spent the morning of their wedding day on the Sacramento River. A half hour before ceremony time the men came rolling in on motorcycles not yet dressed for the wedding. Where most brides wouldn’t have taken to that very well, Stacy wasn’t phased by it at all. She was calm as could be! A little behind ceremony time and without a care in the world this bride was glowing as she made her entrance and she looked absolutely gorgeous. Her best friend was waiting for her at the altar, their moment had finally arrived.  The barn was adorned in fun colors for end of summer with shades of turquoise comprising the wedding cake and decorations around the barn! Chase put a lot of effort into putting unique touches into a custom made bridal party table and custom arbor! The day went off well and it was a perfect Sunday at the Ranch. Stacy and Chase we are so happy you both found your true love and celebrated with us at TBS! Congratulations! DAABF973-B6D38B6C-8B6DE064-ABAD0086-37C25DDE-15AFB570-9B5A66DB-AF1979DA-90839F41-48D8F722-7D6126CC-6CAE2A10-AC95962D-AA570A5F-90839F41-32C6C179-5839B110-ABAD0086-B7D08D50-DD5D16CD-6405B543-5839B110-5D16B58D-DC107651-

9/3/17 Robin and Mike

Robin and Mike chose to exchange their wedding vows at the Ranch on September 3rd! A beautifully vintage inspired wedding certainly went off so sweetly! Robin and Mike met two years ago through twitter; he moved from Boston to come be with Robin and create a shared life together. She looked timeless in her bridal dress that day and Mike was ever so happy to be marrying his best friend.  These two are truly in love! Everything radiated a vintage vibe, from her gown that accessorized a homemade crocheted shawl, to the tea parlor that had various china cups set out for guests. The cake looked classic but had a romantic feel with fresh roses, carnations and eucalyptus placed perfectly down the tiers.  Ivory and burgundy were the focal colors and everything coordinated so well!  It was a sight to see during the evening with an extraordinary amount of dragonflies around the barn, some might say visitors from heaven! We love how this day unfolded and everyone involved had a wonderful time celebrating. Robin and Mike, we hope you both enjoy your new life as a married couple and hope your new journey is the best it can be, congratulations!

9/2/17 Danielle and Jordan

Danielle and Jordan were hitched at the Ranch on September 2nd! What an absolutely beautiful couple inside and out, this wedding was so lovely! Despite the wildfire smoke we’ve had thick in the valley this past week, Danielle and Jordan with the help of their family still managed to pull off such an elegant day! Danielle looked beyond stunning in her gown adorned with lace sleeves and Jordan certainly was handsome in his formal attire. For a couple that loves the outdoors there were touches all around that reflected that; from the antlers placed on the centerpieces to the amazing dessert bar with a handmade wooden cupcake holder, it was above and beyond! The bridesmaids were in burgundy and everything in the barn reflected that romantic color it was top notch.  Danielle’s Mom handcrafted various shades of paper flowers that were fashioned in the barn, it was so cute!  Photos were taken by a classic Buick and even this cherry looking car matched them to a tee! Everything came together beautifully and everyone appeared to have the best time! We want to wish Danielle and Jordan a huge congratulations with a lifetime of happiness and forever love! IMG_1815IMG_2944IMG_2936IMG_2934IMG_2908IMG_2933IMG_2866IMG_2901IMG_2905IMG_2911IMG_2916IMG_2923IMG_2922IMG_2938IMG_2864IMG_2865IMG_2823IMG_2919IMG_2868IMG_2826IMG_2824IMG_2825IMG_1814IMG_2863IMG_2833IMG_2867IMG_2924IMG_2927IMG_2929IMG_2970IMG_2965IMG_2957IMG_2839IMG_2827IMG_2836IMG_2831IMG_1819IMG_2845IMG_2830IMG_2829IMG_2835IMG_2872IMG_2874

Heather and Nate were married at the Ranch on Thursday, August 24th!  My goodness, we just haven’t been able to catch a break with this heat, and in the peak of summer sun these two lovebirds sure still put on a nice celebration!  Best friends through-out Jr high and on thru high school turned these sweethearts into husband and wife, Heather and Nate were just meant to be!  Her Father and Stepfather gave her away; as she was walking down the aisle with the two of them her beautiful smile lit up the entire crowd!  She looked so happy to be marrying Nate and he was beside himself waiting for her.  He was dressed sharply in his Marine uniform, thank you Nate for your service to our country!  The guest tables were adorned with beautiful hydrangeas and eucalyptus, and in and among the decorations were various shades of mint green and aqua.  I was regretful missing this day as I was feeling under the weather but I was so grateful for our hostess Kathie for carrying on and taking all the photos.  I would like to congratulate Heather and Nate on their marriage, what a wonderful new journey you both have ahead of you!

8/12/17 Sam and Michael

Sam and Michael were married on Saturday August 12th out at the Ranch, and what a fun group and party this was! These two country lovebirds met when they were a mere 12 years old, and through their love of riding and rodeo their paths continued to cross and they became best of friends. The friendship grew much deeper these last five years and Michael decided it was time to ask this little cutie to tie the knot. Sam was glowing in her strapless gown and so ready to do this, and her handsome cowboy, Michael, was more than ready as well. After months of planning her day was unfolding as perfectly as she had planned it. Grandmas, Grandpas, Moms, Dads, Aunts, and Uncles all had a hand in helping pull the day off, and their help wasn’t taken for granted. Sam and Michael were sincerely thankful for everything they had done. Sam chose “Cowboy take me away” as her and Michael’s recessional song which was very fitting and sent this group right into party mode. The barn was decorated so perfectly simple and rustic country with white and pale pink hydrangeas and burlap on each table, and a beautiful country cake wrapped with burlap as well! The bridesmaids matched with peach dresses along with their matching rose bouquets, it was just lovely! They even had a surprise auction that added to the fun vibe of the party with each of them earning a fair share towards their honeymoon! Sam and Michael threw a fun party that was a night to remember; music went into the evening with swing dancing with their loved ones. We had so much fun hosting this phenomenal couple and truly wish that they enjoy many long years of marriage together! Congratulations Sam and Michael!

7/29/17 Emily and Nick

Emily and Nick said their “I Do’s” at the Ranch on July 29th! It was such a nice day despite the very hot weather we’ve been receiving.  They met on Plenty of Fish, and hats off to two people finding each other that have served our country; Emily was in the US Army and Nick served in the US Navy, thank you both!  These two sweethearts were so genuine and kind.  Blending families together can sometimes be a challenge but it looked as though they had pulled it off seamlessly!  Emily has three kids of her own and Nick has two, these children appeared to be such good friends, it was very sweet!  As Emily walked down the aisle to a beautiful instrumental version of  “Here Comes the Bride” she was glowing and Nick looked so happy. It was clearly visable this family was surrounded by love!  After the short ceremony (shortest ever) came dinner and dancing which was DJ’d by Nicks friend, Leo!  It was so sweet watching everyone mingle and enjoy good company, especially amazing to have had Emily’s grandmother there who is 90 years young!  We wish these two a fantastic new journey as one big family, enjoy and soak it up!  Congratulations!

7/8/17 Ashley and Darren

All brides begin to realize that planning a wedding and working full time are actually two full time jobs.  It’s amazing to think about what a person with determination can endure. Ashley powered through all last year planning a perfect wedding day, finishing Nursing school, and taking her State Board test to become an RN.  On July 8, 2017 Ashley and Darren gathered with family and friends for a wedding that celebrated not only their love for one another, but what trials and tribulations it took them to get here. When I think of this wedding I think of the warmth and love this couple not only bring to each other but to all of their guests as well. Darren is in law enforcement and they met when Ashley did a ride along. They hit it off immediately. Darren’s friends knew Ashley was a keeper when he introduced her to them and told him if he didn’t marry her they would! Long time cowboy friend Mikey officiated the ceremony making it even more special.
Ashley’s dress was beautiful and Darren looked absolutely dashing in his vest and wranglers. They each read their own written vows making the ceremony that much sweeter. The barn was decorated with fresh cut flowers sitting on rustic wood rounds. The lovely cake was flanked by beautiful cupcakes that looked like lavander roses.
The reception was filled with fun. From the couples first dance showing off great dance moves to “Trouble” by Travis Tritt and to one of my favorites “Tiger by the Tail”.  The fun and love lasted from start to finish for the couple and their guests. This fun night ended in a circle of friends singing at the top of their lungs to Garth Brooks, ” Friends in Low Places”!  Such a happy crowd.
Congratulations Ashley and Darren it was an honor and a privilege to host your wedding at our venue. We wish you love and happiness always.

7/7/17 Rudi and Anthony

Rudi and Anthony celebrated their big day at the ranch on July 7th, just the sweetest day for the sweetest couple!  This wedding was filled with such love, sweet details, and simple touches that overall created a perfect day!  Rudi was a stunning bride; as she walked down the aisle in her champagne dress while her hair swooped up so elegant she took center stage!  It was so cute, and very apparent, Anthony the groom just adored her.  He is a US Marine currently stationed at Camp Pendleton.  The bridesmaids in their navy blue certainly tied in with the red roses and white accents to give a subtle patriotic, yet romantic feel.  You could certainly tell by the way this wedding party interacted with each other that they are just the best of friends.  It was even neat to see a bridesmaid standing with the groomsmen and the opposite on the other side; every part of this day was so full of love.  It was a day that Rudi and Anthony will forever remember and to have all their close family and friends there it will be cherished in their books!  We wish this sweet duo a life together filled with love and all the happiness in the world!  19990297_1621020011244245_6303534767906304660_nIMG_1998IMG_1999IMG_2001IMG_1996IMG_1993IMG_1992IMG_1990IMG_2003IMG_2006IMG_2019IMG_2011IMG_2010IMG_2034IMG_2029IMG_2027IMG_2051IMG_2044IMG_2042IMG_2040IMG_2069IMG_2063IMG_2060IMG_2057IMG_1975IMG_1974IMG_1973
