5/16/15-Shawna and Ken – Redding Wedding Venue, Destination Weddings Bay Area


Congratulations to Shawna and Ken!!!!  What an AMAZING day these two had!!!  The relaxed yet chic vibe fit them so well, and the day was beyond perfect.  Shawna, Ken, their friends and family all traveled from the Bay Area for this event so this was truly a destination wedding in Redding!! I always consider it such an honor when we have people choose our venue over those in the Bay Area.  After working with Shawna and Ken, and getting to know them a bit, it is apparent that the vibe of the TBS Ranch fits them perfectly.  Gwen Edwardson Events coordinated this lovely event, and as always, did a stellar job.  I was able to take a lot of pictures.  Hope you enjoy!

I had a lot of fun knowing Shawna and Ken,  and we wish them the very very very best!!!!!

4/23/15 – Dianeme and Ryan – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Dianeme and Ryan!  This beautiful wedding was a weekday Sunsetter event, which means that I hosted and stayed throughout the entire event.  I don’t get to do that for the weekend weddings, so it is really fun for me to have the weekday events.  I had a total blast and got lots of fun pictures because I was there for the entire event.  Hope you enjoy (=

We wish Dianeme and Ryan the very best!!!!!

Congratulations to Yvette and Jeff!  Another perfect day for another perfect couple at the TBS Ranch!  We wish them the best (=

I din’t get many “people” pictures because I was so busy.  Did get lots of photos of the fun set up though.  LOVED the pink and the candy bar was AMAZING!  The vibe was great and fit Yvette so well.

4/11/15-Laborers Local 185 Annual Picnic – Redding Wedding Venue

I am VERY late posting this blog.  So busy lately!  It has been 3 weeks now and I am just getting the chance.  It’s a good busy though, so no complaints (=

LOVE LOVE LOVE having these great people every year!!!!!  The Laborers Local 185 have been celebrating their spring event at the TBS Ranch for I think 9 years now?  I have gotten to know some of these people over the years, and they are truly great folks.  Family oriented and good work ethic.  They had a HUGE turnout this year, and  a lot of new faces.  Everyone had a total blast, (especially the kids!), and it is always so much fun having them.

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.

We wish them the very best!

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 (=
