4/10/15 – Ally and Andy – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Ally and Andy!!!  Oh my goodness I absolutely LOVED these two from the moment I met them.  Andy has the cutest Irish accent and Ally is just the sweetest!  They are so meant to be together.  Andy’s family is from Ireland, and Ally’s family is from Colorado, so many guests came from other parts of the world and US!  Redding showed them all the PERFECT day!  Just amazing.  It was an honor knowing all of them.

We wish them the very best!!!!

4/4/15 – Kelsey and John – Destination Wedding, Redding Wedding Venue


IMG_0706Congratulations to Kelsey and John!  This was a total destination wedding.  Kelsey and John live in Southern California and I have to say that Kelsey did an amazing job of planning this wedding long distance.  She did have the help of Teri Benson from Affairs.  The day was amazing, perfect weather for an outdoor wedding in Redding.  Kelsey was such a classic bride.  John is a lucky guy!  The photos will speak for themselves.

3/14/15 – Jenessa and Ben – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Jenessa and Ben!!!

I have been saying for years that I need to shorten my blog posts due to not having any time.  Well this year I mean it!  I seriously do not have time anymore.  They say being busy is a good thing and I am going to roll with it.  Starting with this post, the pictures will have to speak for themselves.  I will post the name of the bride and groom, and a congrats, and then the pictures.  I want you to know how hard this is for me!  I LOVE writing about the weddings and newlyweds.  I guess my first clue that I don’t have time anymore is this blog is almost 3 weeks late!  Now that wedding season officially starts this weekend, I have to keep up (=

That said, Jenessa and Ben are a wonderful couple, and we wish them the very very very best!!!!

3/7/15 – Gracie and River – Redding Wedding Venue


IMG_0432Congratulations to Gracie and River!!!  From the moment that I met these two and heard their ideas on what they wanted, I knew that the TBS Ranch was their perfect venue!  The barn provided the perfect backdrop for their Medieval theme, and Gwen Edwardson did an amazing job making my barn look Medieval!  I had a few people visit the ranch and view the set up and they all LOVED it.  It was different, and reflected Gracie and River perfectly.  The spectacular weather stuck around for this amazing day.  The vibe was just so perfect and it is so evident that Gracie and River have their priorities in order.  They ADORE each other, and have such a support group of friends and family.  It is quite evident that they have a very bright future in front of them, and of course we wish them the very very best!!!

I was very busy getting back into the groove of wedding season.  The bad news is that I didn’t get many pictures.  The good news is that Brent and Rachael Van Auken photographed this event and I will get some sure to be AMAZING photos from them.  They are so very talented and I can’t wait to see the photos.  I will post to share them as soon as I get them.  Thanks to Brent and Rachael in advance!


This cake sets the Medieval theme so well. It is just so River and Gracie! Amazing (=

2/8/15 – Bridal Guide Bridal Show 2015


IMG_0118As always, had a TOTAL BLAST at the Bridal Guide Bridal Show held at the Simpson College Event Center on Sunday, February 8, 2015.  Any of you that know me, know that I love to talk, especially about weddings, so this is my day!  LOVED chatting with me existing brides, as well as meeting a lot of my future brides.  The reason I am so late posting this blog is because I have been totally slammed with appointments after the show.  THANK YOU to all of you that stopped and chatted with me.  I enjoyed each and every one of you!

I also have to thank Teri Benson from Affairs for doing my booth.  She has done my booth for me for 10 years!  I am spoiled.  She makes it so easy for me.  AND, it always looks amazing!!!

11/15/14 – Bethany and Dan – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Bethany and Dan!!!!  Oh my goodness I had fun knowing these two!  They are just so sweet. It is so evident that Dan adores Bethany because his smile is beaming every time he looks at her.  She was such a beautiful bride.  Classic beauty with a sweetness that you cannot ignore.

I was going to mention on my last blog that if it didn’t rain weekend of 11/15, that ALL of the TBS Ranch weddings in 2014 were able to be outdoor events.  I didn’t mention it then because I didn’t want to jinx it.  Rain was predicted pretty much all week, but it turned out to be a stunning fall day!  Perfect for the fall vibe that Bethany wanted.  It was very sunny, and the temperature was pleasant, not too cold.  It is a good thing that the wedding was on Saturday, and Sunday.  It was COLD and windy on Sunday!  This was such a great wedding to conclude the season 2014 season!!!  Okay for it to rain now (=

LOVELY couple…we wish them the very very very best!!!!

11/1/14-Melanie and Kevin – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Melanie and Kevin!  The fall vibe of this amazing day was breathtaking!!!  It was warm, inviting, and cozy in a chic romantic way.  Just beyond words to explain the vibe of this wedding.  It was supposed to rain…NOT!!!  It POURED at the rehearsal on Friday.  We were planning on set up on the barn, but when I woke up Saturday am to pillow like white clouds and sun, I knew that they would be able to have their outdoor ceremony.  When I checked the weather, it said that the storm had moved south.  Go figure!  Connections with Mother Nature, right?  In any case, it rained on the LA brides, but not our Palo Cedro bride!  The amazing perfect fall weather just added to the magic of this day.

Gwen Edwardson coordinated, and as always, did a wonderful job of bringing Melanie’s dream to reality.  Plus she makes my job easier!  I know that is so selfish, but so true (=

We wish Melanie and Kevin the very very very best!!!!!

10/25/14 – Amanda and Jason – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Amanda and Jason!!!!  When I first met with Amanda and Jason, I was so excited to see Amanda as a bride.  She has such an elegant appeal with her dark hair and amazing skin.  I knew that she was going to be a stunning bride, and she certainly did not disappoint!  Jason cleaned up pretty nicely as well (=

Since Amanda and Jason are from the Susanville area, we only met a few times and worked mostly through e-mail.  Amanda wanted a casual vibe for her day, and the only thing that was very important to her is that she have the ceremony outdoors.  When we met at the rehearsal the day before, the weather was stunning, but they were predicting rain.  We went over rain set up in the barn just in case; and although Amanda is SUPER easy going, you could sense just a bit of disappointment that she might have to have the ceremony indoors.  When the wind on Friday night blew over our fence at the house, and the rain was just pelting on the windows, I honestly did not think that there was any way for an outdoor wedding.  Well, Amanda must have some connections!  Although it was very windy, the weather stayed pretty much dry all day.  Amanda got her outdoor ceremony, and it was so picturesque and romantic with the wind and the clouds rolling in from the distance.  You could hear the thunder during the ceremony which was really fun!  It stayed dry throughout the ceremony, all of the guests got inside, and then it let go!!!  If rain is good luck on your wedding, Amanda and Jason are going to win the lottery of life!!!  It was like it was holding back all day just so Amanda and Jason could have their ceremony.  The timing of the storm was incredible.  Like I said, they must have connections!

I wish that I could have taken more photos of this beautiful wedding, but I was too busy sweeping leaves and picking up branches!  The photographer promised that they would send some of their photos.  I will start them once I receive them.

The vibe of this day was AMAZING!  Amanda and Jason are such a lovely couple and we wish them the very very best!!!!!
