5/6/17 Kameron and Ashley

Kameron and Ashley were married at the Ranch on May 6th; they went with the upbeat color of Malibu blue and it positively showcased a blend of elegance and fun! Ashley was a flawless bride, I just loved her dress! This couple, along with their family and friends, were such a fun-loving group; it was apparent a great time was had by all! Family came from near and far, and they were fortunate enough to have 3 sets of grandparents attend along with their 94 year old Grandma coming from Salt Lake City! Every tiny detail from the head table to the food table were fashioned perfectly thanks to Kameron’s mom Cheryl who did it all; I especially loved the fruit arrangement that was cascading down from the metal pail that was so creative! I adored their flawless wedding cake as well that was made by Bobbies Creative Cakes; it certainly added to this chic affair! This wedding was set out to be a positively stylish event, and It absolutely was! Looking at their photos will have you saying “wow!” Congratulations to an adoring couple, Kameron and Ashley we wish you unconditional love and happiness in your new life!

5/1/17 Amy And Adam, May Day Wedding

What a fantastic way to kick off a new month here at TBS Ranch with Amy and Adam getting married on the first of May! A serviceman who finally married the love of his life! These two were adorable together.  Amy was glowing and made a lovely bride, and with spring in full bloom the various shades of purple she chose were a perfect way to blend in with the beautiful California sun! This wedding was filled with many tiny details that were noticed in every square inch of the barn! Their wedding planner, Valinda, did a great job making Amy’s dream barn come alive, adding all these lovely touches; from the tulle bows wrapped perfectly on every chair, to the cake corner with lights twined in branches. I love when the barn lights up and this wedding certainly did just that!  It was a simple elegant wedding that really showcased the beauty of this spring day.  Adam and Amy, thank you for letting TBS Ranch host your special day!  Your beautiful wedding and commitment to each other will be forever remembered here!  Congratulations and cheers to a happy, loving life together!     IMG_0361IMG_0345IMG_0346IMG_1077IMG_0353IMG_0357IMG_0354IMG_0353IMG_0366IMG_0349IMG_1082 2IMG_0326IMG_1096IMG_1089IMG_1132IMG_1091IMG_1096IMG_1082IMG_0378IMG_1130IMG_1072IMG_1122IMG_0372

4/30/17 Karissa and Patrick

It’s amazing how songs can so precisely tell a love story; “Humble and Kind” by Tim McGraw came to mind when thinking of Patrick and Karissa’s wedding day.  These two Simpson College students planned their day, knowing it would be at the tail end of a week of finals. They were together united on Sunday, April 30th and the entire day was filled with so much love.  Karissa looked beautiful in her dress, and watching Patrick, you could actually feel how happy he was, as he waited for his future bride to meet him at the end of the aisle.  After the ceremony was an elegant dinner, in a brightly decorated barn.  Pops of color resembling peacocks were displayed on the tables; Karissa even had peacock feathers on her dress, and all bridesmaids matched in corresponding colors so perfectly!  Speeches took over during and after dinner, and it was so amazing to feel the love from their wedding guests.  Words like compassionate, kind, and caring were recurring throughout these speeches, and you could really tell these described Patrick and Karissa wholeheartedly.  They are a wonderful couple and we wish them a beautifully blessed life together!  Congratulations to you both!


4/29/17 Jessica and Scott, NorCal Barn Venue, Redding Outdoor weddings

What a picture-perfect spring day to celebrate Scott and Jessica!  From a lovely outdoor ceremony to a stylish reception, the blending of elegant plus country came together seamlessly!   These two lovebirds put together an enjoyable wedding with the assistance of Monique of Timeless Moments Wedding Planning, who aided in helping to make Jessica’s day beautiful and stress free. This lovely April 29th had the ranch adorned with spring flora, wine barrels, and chic signs!  A photo booth was even showcased and guests got the chance to show off their “style & smile”!  The ring bearers looked adorable in their cowboy attire, while the flower girl added a dainty touch.  Jessica was absolutely striking in her gown; her smile just lit up everyone around her, it was so endearing!  Scott certainly looked fetching in his tuxedo and it was fun to see them in such heartfelt moments. So much love filled the barn that evening it was truly a memorable day.  We want to wish Scott and Jessica a wonderful life ahead! Congratulations on your new beginning!

It’s always fun to see couples incorporate themes into their wedding day that showcase their personalities. Die-hard Sharks fans, Eric and Jaclyn, were married on April 22nd and it was an all-around perfect day! These two aficionados bleed the signature black and teal hockey colors, and while remaining classy and elegant it served as their palette for the wedding! Eric paid tribute to their team by wearing a teal suit, while Jaclyn looked absolutely stunning in her Queen Anne neckline gown! The Bride and Groom’s love for their favorite hockey team was incorporated into their wedding cake, while subtle details accented the rest of the barn! Veiled in Vintage event planners Kayla and Roberta were awesome and were there from start to finish taking care of every last detail; they really went to lengths to make sure this day was exactly what Jaclyn set out for it to be! This couple was so much fun and you could tell everyone celebrated in game day fashion! Eric and Jacyln, our very best wishes to the both of you for a wonderful life together! Happily ever after begins now!thumbnail_IMG_0806thumbnail_IMG_0186thumbnail_IMG_0182-2thumbnail_IMG_0190IMG_0194thumbnail_IMG_0196thumbnail_IMG_0227thumbnail_IMG_0223thumbnail_IMG_0805thumbnail_IMG_0217thumbnail_IMG_0210thumbnail_IMG_0198IMG_0811IMG_0801thumbnail_IMG_0210thumbnail_IMG_0807

4/16/17 Cory and Karlie Outdoor wedding Venue Barn Weddings

A little rain didn’t dampen the spirits of these party animals!  Cory and Karlie celebrated their special day on Sunday, April 16th, and while the afternoon rain altered their plans, it did not stop them from having a great time!  You can feel this couple’s affection towards eachother and it just radiates among the people that love them.  With TBS barn’s blank slate, Cory and Karlie were able to create what looked like an elegant night club with furniture and cocktail tables placed all around.  With their large letters spelling LOVE on the south side of the barn it truly felt like you were someplace else!  I also adored the table with succulents and honey as wedding favors for the guests!  This group partied all night, and Cory and Karlie even broke out some choreographed dance moves, it was awesome! The energy in and among the crowd stayed strong up until the end.  This was a fabulous way to close another weekend on the ranch, and judging by the weather you could tell someone special was looking down on them.  Best wishes to Cory and Karlie for a lifetime of love and happiness!

4/1/17 Becky and Justin, Redding barn Weddings, Barn venue

Justin and Becky tied the knot on the 1st of April, a lovely spring day!  This was an enjoyable gathering, and friends and family came as far as Idaho to attend this rustic country affair! Jessica, who was not only the Mother of the Groom but also the wedding planner and designer, created touches that simply captured the essence of the day! From using Becky’s late Grandpa’s vintage 1934 Ford Phaeton for photos, to the fresh flowers on every table, this wedding exuded country charm. Justin’s father, Mike, also had a handle on the cooking and it was incredible!  With the help of their parents, personalitywas seen in every detail of the day.  I adored Becky’s bridal bouquet which featured an attractive combination of greenery and roses, with just a glimpse of a pheasant feather!  She looked striking in her gown, and Justin certainly cleaned up nice yet still embodied the country style. These two simply complement one another and it shows, this was a perfect day all around!  Thank you Laura for sharing such great photos!!  Congratulations Justin and Becky, we wish you a lifetime of happiness!
