10/8/16 – Taylor and Dillon – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Taylor and Dillon!  What an amazing day for an amazing couple!  I had SO much fun working with Clarinda, Taylor’s mom.  They came to quite a few viewings so I got to know them a bit.  It was such an honor being a part of this amazing day.  I was given the opportunity to be in the bridal suite with Taylor just before her march.  That was a true honor!  I am usually down by the barn snapping pictures, so this was different for me.  She was just as calm and relaxed as could be.  Not nervous at all!  I got a few fun pictures of this moment that I hope you enjoy.

LOVED the pink and brown in the barn!!!  It was such the perfect reflection of Taylor.  Not an over the top pink, but an understated pink with a touch of class.  The flowers were amazing, and all was stunning!  We wish this lovely couple the very best!!!!

10/1/16 – Karissa and Seth – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Karissa and Seth!  This was the first wedding of 2016 that had a true fall vibe.  It was beyond words STUNNING, and so much fun that Karissa entered on her horse!  Everyone was surprised with her grand entrance, and it will for sure be remembered by all.

This event was coordinated by Monique Stevens, and she did an amazing job!  Karissa and Seth are not locals, so having Monique behind the scenes locally handling the details really paid off.  It was very simple, but very elegant, and the perfect reflection of the bride and groom!  We wish them the very best!!!!

9/24/16-Danyka and Cory – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Danyka and Cory!!!  These two are just so freaking cute together.  I don’t know them well because they are not locals, so I only met with them one time for a few minutes prior to their date.  They are originally from this area, so they knew about the ranch and have been there before.  I feel so honored that when they got engaged, they thought of the TBS Ranch!  They are just the perfect fit for the ranch. Kathy, Cory’s mom, is AMAZING with coordination and flowers.  What a blessing she must have been to them to have her taking care of some of those details behind the scenes.  She took input from Danyka and helped make everything so lovely. Too bad she doesn’t do this full time!  She looked like she was having fun, but I know how much work it is.  It paid off for their day was the perfect reflection of them, and of course we wish this lovely couple the very best!!!

AND…SHE was beyond stunning!  What a beautiful bride.  I am truly so happy for this lovely couple, and wish them the very best!!!!!

9/10/16-Tifani and Ryan – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Tifani and Ryan!  LOVE LOVE LOVE these two!  My connection with them was instant and I feel so very honored to have been a part of their wedding day.  I did get to know them a bit through the wedding planning stages and they have such an admiration and love for each other that it touches all that come near them.  You could tell that from their friends and family as well.  All such wonderful people.  Tifani and Ryan have what it takes for a fulfilling life together; a deep admiration and love for each other, and the support of their many friends and family.

Their wedding day was the perfect reflection of them, as well as the support of their friends and family.  Everyone pitched in to help. Someone made those fabulous picnic tables that they used for the head table.  AMAZING!  It was just beautiful!  AND..Tifani, what a vision.  Oh my goodness she looked like an angel, and Ryan so dapper.  These two are truly meant to be together forever, and we wish them the very best!!!!

9/3/16 – Shaila and Cameron – Redding Wedding Venue


IMG_0194Congratulations to Shaila and Cameron!!!  These two were high school sweethearts and I love that they stayed together through college, jobs, and just life in general.  Hearing those stories is so rare, and I think that when you grow up together, you have a bond like no other.  You can just tell that they adore each other, and they really such wonderful people.  Their friends and family are a great reflection of them.  Everyone was so kind, and really fun!  The fun factor was definitely present at this event!

Gwen Edwardson coordinated this wedding.  Anyone that follows my blog knows that I absolutely LOVE Gwen.  Not only is she an amazing coordinator, but she has become a great friend over the years.  She has a rare talent to coordinate these events so that they are the perfect reflection of the bride and groom.  I have done literally hundreds of weddings with her and every one of them has a unique vibe.  She pulled it off again with Shaila and Cameron.  Their wedding day was the perfect reflection of them, and they seemed so happy!

I got lots of pictures because Gwen events are very low maintenance on my behalf, so I have a lot of time.  I only hope that the pictures reflect the awesomeness of this day.

We wish Shaila and Cameron the very best!!!!!

Congratulations to Kym and Taylor!!!  I LOVED these two from the moment I met with them, and knew that the classy yet relaxed vibe of the TBS Ranch was the perfect fit for them. Not only are Kym and Taylor really great..so are their friends and family!  I really had a lot of fun with this crowd.  So easy going and respectful.

The simple yet elegant set up and decor was the PERFECT reflection of Kym and Taylor.  What a lovely couple and we wish them the very best!!!!

8/20/16 – Kristi and Cody – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Kristi and Cody!!!  What a beautiful day for this lovely couple!  I did not get to stay for the ceremony, but Bobbie, the host that day, took some awesome pictures for me!  Bobbie is a lot more creative than me, and it shows in her photos.  I bet that you will be able to tell which ones are hers!  I am bummed that I did not get to see Kristi as a bride in person.  I knew that she was going to be a beautiful bride because of her classic California girl vibe, but the pictures that Bobbie sent blew me away!  Cody….you are one very fortunate young man!

Not only was Kristi beautiful, but the entire vibe of this event was awesome!  It was such a fun event…they even had a bounce house for the kids!

We wish them the very best!!!!

8/6/16-Michelle and Cody – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Michelle and Cody!!!  Michelle and Cody booked the TBS Ranch sight unseen!  Michelle’s mom visited and knew that it was the perfect venue for her daughter, and Michelle trusted her.  When I finally met with Michelle at the ranch, Cody was unable to come.  Michelle LOVED it and we hit it off right away.  She is such a doll!  I finally met Cody just a few weeks prior to the wedding date, and he was equally happy.  Them being happy makes me happy!

Their wedding day was AMAZING!  Michelle truly had a vision, and with the help of Kayla Bass as her wedding coordinator, her vision was brought to a very beautiful reality.  It was truly stunning.  I only hope that the pictures that I got speak for the incredible vibe of this day.

We wish this lovely couple the very best!
