11/7/15-Chereese and Kirk-Destination Wedding, Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Chereese and Kirk!!!  Since Chereese and Kirk are not local, this was a total destination wedding and I did not get a chance to know them well. I did not even meet Kirk until the day of the wedding, and even then very brief (he was busy!).  I did meet Chereese just once last November when she viewed the venue. She loved the fall colors and wanted the same for her wedding so booked the very same weekend that she viewed.  She got EXACTLY what she wanted.  The weather was beyond stunning, and the grounds had such beautiful fall colors!  We have since had a few wind storms that take all of the beautiful fall leaves out of the trees, but Chereese timed it perfectly.  With the assistance of Gwen Edwardson Events, Chereese had a fall fairytale wedding!  It took my breath away it was so beautiful!  I do hope that the pictures that I took show just a hint of the amazing vibe of this day.

We wish them the very best!!!!!

10/24/15 – Melissa and Amanda – Destination Wedding Venue Redding, CA


Congratulations to Melissa and Amanda!  Since they are from San Jose, I only met them once.  I worked with their coordinator, Marlene from A Planned Affair on all of the details.  This was a total destination wedding!  We have had a handful of these this year and it is really fun to show off the Redding area.  Once you get off of I-5, the area is pretty special.  The weather was PERFECT!  The day was AMAZING!  LOVED LOVED LOVED the colors in the barn.  So classy, yet the antlers and Harry Potter signs gave it a casual fun vibe.  LOVED it!  Marlene did a great job working with these two long distance to create the magic!  We hope that they had the day of their dreams, and wish them the very best!!!!

10/18/15 – Sarah and Rod – Redding Outdoor / Barn Wedding Venue

2015-10-19 06.34.53

Congratulations to Sarah and Rod!!!  Sarah and Rod wanted simple, simple, simple, but fun, fun, fun!!!  Their day was the perfect reflection of what they wanted.  Sarah and Rod were very low maintenance on my behalf.  The only thing that Sarah knew she wanted was lights in the barn, and that was easily accomplished.  She wanted that festive glow that the lights provide, and it was the perfect day for that.  This was a very busy day for me, so I did not get to take many pictures.  I also had to leave early, so missed out on some of my signature photos that I love to share.  I do hope that the photos I was able to take capture the magical vibe of these two.  They are really fun loving great people, and we wish them the very best!!!!!

10/17/15 – Heidi and Darin – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Heidi and Darin!!!  I knew that these two were the perfect fit for the ranch upon meeting with them last year when they booked.  They are very easy going and wanted a fun causal day that everyone would enjoy themselves; yet an elegant chic feel.  That combo is sometimes difficult to achieve, buy they nailed it!   That casual yet chic / classy / elegant vibe is what the TBS Ranch is about!  Heidi did an AMAZING job putting this event together.  It was beyond words classically beautiful.  The fall vibe was unavoidable, and the weather PERFECT!  There was rain in the morning, and they planned for an indoor ceremony, which was not needed after all.  The afternoon was amazing, and because of the rain earlier, clean and crisp.  Just LOVELY overall.  I got loads of photos.  Hope you enjoy (=

We wish Heidi and Darin the very best!!!!

10/10/15 – Tiffany and Rob – Redding Wedding Venue

IMG_5021Congratulations to Tiffany and Rob!!!  Tiffany was the MOST organized person I have ever worked with.  She was on every detail, and did it all herself.  I don’t know how she did it, but she did an AMAZING job!  The simple elegance fit her and Rob so well.  I had a lot of appointments to show the ranch that day and everyone commented not the simple elegance of this wedding.  The weather was also perfect; sunny, but had a fall vibe.  I had so much fun at this event.  Such great people, all of them.

We wish them the very best!!!!!

10/3/15 – Elise and Jeff – Destination Wedding Venue Redding, CA


IMG_4911Congratulations to Elise and Jeff!!!!  I hope they don’t get mad at me for saying this, but they are so perfect that they reminded me of Barbie and Ken wedding dolls, but not in a plastic way, a GOOD way.   If there was a Barbie and Ken wedding this would be it.  Everything was fantasy like beyond perfect.  Elise looked like she stepped right out of a bridal magazine, and Jeff so dapper.  Both were just bridal eye candy!  Their kids are going to be CUTE!

They could not have asked for a better autumn day.  The weather was perfect!  Most guests came out of the San Diego area, so Redding showed them a great day. The set up in the barn had a great classic vibe.  I can’t find the works to describe it without sounding cheesy, so I will let the photos speak for me.

I have to mention Ashley, Elise’s sister.  This woman should be a wedding planner.  So organized and on it during the entire planning process.  Had a blast working with her.  Maybe she wants to move to Redding and be a coordinator?

Elise and Jeff are a LOVELY couple and we wish them the very best!!!!!

10/1/15 – Bianca and Christian – Barn Wedding Venue, Redding CA

IMG_4722Congratulations to Bianca and Christian!  This lovely event was a vow renewal.  Their day started with rain, that is good luck!  By the afternoon it was just perfect weather.  The air was so fresh after the morning rain, and the scattered clouds make for such great photos.  Since this was a weekday wedding, I hosted the entire event, do I got to know the family a little.  Oh my goodness this is a tight family! Hard working, respectful, and overall FABULOUS people.  I can’t say enough nice things about them all.  It’s obvious that Bianca and Christian care deeply for each other, and with that strong family support, they are sure to make it forever (=  We wish them the very best!!!!

9/27/15 – Autumn Dreams Bridal and Event Faire – Redding Bridal Shows, Redding Wedding Venue


I can’t believe it’s been 10 years!  I have had a booth at every one of these shows, and it sure doesn’t seem like it’s been 10 years. Well  you know what they say, time flies when having fun, and I always have fun at these shows!  I couldn’t have my “usual” booth this year because I didn’t have Shane to set it up.  He has been traveling a lot on business lately.  We had a wedding on that day as well, so just too crazy to do anything for the booth.  THANK the heavens above for Teri Benson the founder of this show. She put the booth together for me, and it was just perfect!  LOVED the colors and had a fall vibe, my favorite.  All I had to do was show up.  I had a hard time even doing that with a wedding that day, but I made it all happen!  However, I could not have done it without Teri.  THANKS Teri for your hard work, and THANKS to all of you future brides that stopped and chatted with me!


9/27/15 – Nicole and Ryan – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Nicole and Ryan!  Because of the 10th Annual Autumn Dreams Bridal and Event Faire being on the same day, I didn’t get to attend this wedding but only for a few minutes.  I did, however, attend the rehearsal where I had the chance to meet everyone.  ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL PEOPLE.  ALL OF THEM!  I wish I could have stayed longer.  From what I was able to gather in my brief visit, it was STUNNING!  It was after the ceremony, so Nicole and Ryan were already husband and wife, and they looked so happy!  I did get a few photos, not my signature photos, but wanted to have something to share.  Hope you enjoy, and we wish them the very best!!!!!

9/26/15 – Courtney and AJ – Outdoor Wedding Venue Redding, CA


Congratulations to Courtney and AJ!  These two are just so flipping adorable together.  You can tell that not only are they in love, but they are best friends.  Their vows that they wrote were so touching, and very FUN!  They were married by someone that knew them well so the ceremony was very memorable.  He spoke about the way they hated each other in middle school, lost track after middle school, and then met again as adults when AJ’s grandparents took him out to breakfast at the restaurant where Courtney worked. Fun story, and full of laughter.  Great vows and great ceremony.  Courtney was hit on the head by a falling acorn during the ceremony!  She may not know this, but that is good luck (=

Lovely day, lovely wedding, lovely people and we wish them the best!!!
