10.6.18 Andrea and Brian

Andrea and Brian were our first wedding for the month of October!  They said their vows on Saturday October 6th amongst close family and friends.  I have to say that these two were just the sweetest couple!  I completely enjoyed their special day and could truly see the love that surrounds them.  Andrea’s bridesmaids were not only her best gals but so genuinely helpful in setting up this amazing day.  Their close friendship is remarkable.  The Father of the Bride walked his lovely daughter down the aisle and after giving her away he officiated the ceremony!  Andrea looked like a gem in her strapless dress and had a sparkling smile to boot!  The bridesmaids were in a version of teal that looked very lush and sophisticated, while the groomsmen donned grey suits with a pop of that same color.  Brian stood out with a black suit and looked quite handsome wearing his cowboy hat!  The tables were adorned with a fall vibe of pumpkins and burgundy maple leaves; combined with all the romantic lights in the barn it made for such an exquisite evening!  What an enjoyable day for all; Andrea and Brian we are pleased you chose our humble Ranch for your wedding, congratulations! IMG_0824IMG_0823IMG_0825IMG_0826IMG_0827IMG_0830IMG_0833IMG_0834IMG_0835IMG_0836IMG_0837IMG_0838IMG_0839IMG_0840IMG_0841IMG_0842IMG_0843IMG_0844IMG_0845IMG_0846IMG_0847IMG_0848IMG_0849IMG_0850IMG_0851IMG_0852IMG_0853IMG_0854IMG_0857IMG_0858IMG_0859IMG_0860IMG_0861IMG_2565IMG_2566IMG_2568IMG_0864IMG_0865IMG_2570IMG_0866IMG_0867IMG_0868IMG_0869IMG_0870IMG_2573IMG_0872IMG_0877IMG_0879IMG_0881IMG_0882IMG_0886IMG_2574IMG_0889IMG_0890IMG_0893IMG_0895IMG_0896IMG_0897IMG_0898IMG_0902IMG_0903IMG_0904IMG_0905IMG_0906IMG_0907IMG_0910IMG_0911IMG_0913IMG_0914IMG_0915IMG_0916IMG_0917IMG_0918IMG_0920IMG_0922IMG_0924IMG_0928IMG_0929IMG_0930IMG_0932IMG_0934IMG_0937IMG_0939IMG_0941IMG_0943IMG_0946IMG_0948IMG_0949IMG_0951IMG_0953IMG_0954IMG_0955IMG_0956IMG_0957IMG_0959IMG_0961IMG_0964IMG_0966IMG_0969IMG_0970IMG_0971IMG_0974IMG_0975IMG_0979IMG_0981IMG_0984IMG_0986IMG_0987IMG_0988IMG_0991IMG_0993IMG_0997IMG_0998IMG_1000IMG_1006IMG_1007

9.29.18 Katie and Tony

Katie and Tony were united in love on Saturday, September 29th!  Such a bright and cheerful wedding to finish out the month of September; this couple had a grand ol’ time!  No flower equates sunny and All-American more than the sunflower, and with an abundance of them around the Ranch how could you not have a smile on your face!  That was Katie the entire time, smiling and sweet!  She looked so classy and beautiful in her dress and Tony was nothing short of handsome!  Katie chose a steel blue for her bridesmaids and added that same color in the groomsmen’s bowties.  That color was seen in areas of the barn, and that mixed with the sunflowers really made everything pop!  The reception made way for a yummy dinner and after that we had a party that certainly loved to dance!  Katie has moves!  This carried everything well into the night hours up until we had to say goodbye.  It was a day so special for Katie and Tony, and we are so elated for their bright future!  To the Mr. and Mrs., hope your marriage brings you a lifetime of joy, unbridled happiness, and love! IMG_4603 2IMG_4604 2IMG_4605 2IMG_4606 2IMG_4625 2IMG_4609 2IMG_4610 2IMG_4621 2IMG_4630 2IMG_4631 2IMG_4632 2IMG_4634 2IMG_4636 2IMG_4639 2IMG_4640 2IMG_4642 2IMG_4643 2IMG_4645 2IMG_4646 2IMG_4650 2IMG_4651 2IMG_4652 2IMG_4653 2IMG_4655 2IMG_4656 2IMG_4657 2IMG_4658 2IMG_4659 2IMG_4660 2IMG_4661 2IMG_4662 2IMG_4663 2IMG_4664 2IMG_4665 2IMG_4666 2IMG_4667 2IMG_4668 2IMG_4669 2IMG_4671 2IMG_4672 2IMG_4675 2IMG_4678 2IMG_4679 2IMG_4681 2IMG_4682 2IMG_4685 2IMG_4686 2IMG_4687 2IMG_4688 2IMG_4689 2IMG_4690 2IMG_4691 2IMG_4692 2IMG_4696 2IMG_4698 2IMG_4706 2IMG_4707 2IMG_4708 2IMG_4709 2IMG_4711 2IMG_4710 2IMG_4712 2IMG_4713 2IMG_4718 2IMG_4714 2IMG_4720 2IMG_4719 2IMG_4722 2IMG_4724 2IMG_4725 2IMG_4726 2IMG_4727 2IMG_4728 2IMG_4729 2IMG_4731 2IMG_4730 2IMG_4732 2IMG_4733 2IMG_4734 2IMG_4735 2IMG_4737 2IMG_4738 2IMG_4739 2IMG_4740 2IMG_4742 2IMG_4743 2IMG_4744 2IMG_4746 2IMG_4747 2IMG_4750 2IMG_4751 2IMG_4752 2IMG_4754 2IMG_4756 2IMG_4759 2IMG_4788 2IMG_4790 2IMG_4791 2IMG_4793 2IMG_4795 2IMG_4800 2IMG_4801 2IMG_4803 2IMG_4804 2IMG_4807 2IMG_4808 2IMG_4810 2IMG_4812 2IMG_4814 2IMG_4815 2IMG_4816 2IMG_4817 2IMG_4819 2IMG_4825 2IMG_4828 2IMG_4832 2IMG_4834 2IMG_4836 2IMG_4838 2IMG_4839 2IMG_4844 2IMG_4845 2IMG_4847 2IMG_4849 2IMG_4850 2IMG_4858 2IMG_4859 2IMG_4860 2IMG_4861 2IMG_4881 2IMG_4884 2IMG_4888 2IMG_4896 2IMG_4897 2IMG_4898 2IMG_4899 2IMG_4901 2fullsizeoutput_5250On6J+JwmRyyTqNDCfPSNygfullsizeoutput_524c

9.23.18 Bree and Nick

We had the pleasure of accommodating Bree and Nick, who fell victim to the harrowing Carr Fire this July.  If you haven’t heard or seen their story on the news, it is heart wrenching.  TBS hosted their wedding on Sunday, September 23rd and it just goes to show you when disaster strikes, how a community can really come together. With the support and immense generosity of many, including a huge part of the planning taken care of by Gwen Edwardson Wedding Planning, Heather Jenson and Aunt Kelley Franks, this day was flawless.  Bree was a knockout in her dress and Nick looked so handsome!  The barn was decorated in varying shades of purple, burlap and lace, and it conveyed such cheer!  There was a rustic yet romantic vibe and it was felt all throughout their special day.  Dinner looked amazing, while the dessert table was top notch; the lavender cupcakes were simply wonderful!  This was a day that Bree and Nick will remember forever.  To go from losing their house with all their important belongings, including decorations for their special day, to having a dream wedding that was contributed by many a thoughtful people, is something for the books.  We just hope that life will bring you much joy and happiness and a new start to something kind and beautiful.  Bree and Nick, congratulations!

9.22.18 Gemma and Ron

On Saturday, September 22nd, we had the pleasure of having Gemma and Ron say their vows at the Ranch.  We couldn’t have asked for a better day weather-wise, it truly was amazing!  I loved the interactions these two lovebirds shared throughout the day, they are quite the match.  The ceremony was a little slow to start due to a slight mishap of misplacing the rings!  They were soon found, and as Gemma stepped out from the bridal suite immediately all the guests whistled and cheered! Her smile was priceless.  She looked absolutely stunning walking down the staircase in her beautiful fitted dress!  Ron looked handsome in his charcoal vest that stood out from his groomsmen but matched them all the same.  Gemma’s 8 bridesmaids were all in grey too as well as cowboy boots and everything just flowed!  The barn was decorated in beautiful greenery mixed with red and white roses and touches of white carnations, as well as candles and painted wooden signs stating “reserved” and “Mr” and “Mrs”.  Everyone REALLY had a great time and after the night was over they generously chose to donate their flowers to the Sunday wedding. Such a thoughtful pair! The couple slipped away to honeymoon taking a relaxing cruise in Alaska. Gemma and Ron we are so glad you picked TBS, congratulations and enjoy all that marriage brings!

9.15.18 Ali and Victor

Ali and Victor tied the knot at the Ranch on Saturday September 15th!  This was such a special day for these two to finally say their vows and have some time to celebrate their love!  Victor works for CAL FIRE and has been persistent in his firefighting efforts through this hellacious fire season, so being able to stop and take a breath with his sweet Bride was well deserved!  Ali was SUCH a natural beauty and was a joy to be around.  She looked beyond effortless in her dress and exuded such happiness!  Their ceremony was special in that it was only the Bride and Groom, along with their three daughters standing next to them.  Ali’s close friend Ashley was her wedding planner and she really went to lengths to make Ali’s day perfect!  Eucalyptus and antler sheds were strewn among tables in the barn and a cute sweetheart table was prominent with a sweet “Mr and Mrs” sign.  This group really had a blast and you could tell how close they keep their friends and family.  It was a day for the books for Ali and Victor and we just want to wish them the best life together as ONE!  Congratulations!             The professional photos taken by Jesse Lee Photography, thank you Jesse!

9.9.18 Sherri and Dan

Sherri and Dan married on a beautiful Sunday, September 9th!  It was an amazing day executed flawlessly with the help of close family.  Dan’s two sisters really worked hard to make Sherri’s dream day perfect.  Sherri’s bridal dress donned off-the-shoulder straps, giving her a romantic chic style; she looked relaxed yet absolutely elegant!  Dan and his groomsmen looked top-notch in their grey tuxedos with maroon ties, very classic and sharp.  The touches of maroon tied in subtly with the bridesmaids who wore some fun short-length wine colored dresses!  The ceremony was beautiful and emotional; a seat was saved up front with a single rose to commemorate Dan’s Mother who passed just last year.  She was no doubt there in spirit.  The ceremony made way for an evening reception of dancing, eating and drinking!  Sublime Cake Design prepared an amazing cake that looked quite tasty!  The barn was made romantic with the maroon tablecloths and baby’s breath as centerpieces.  At the end of the night a limousine chauffeured the happy couple away and we are just so elated for them to start their new life together!  Hope you made it safely back home and are rested up from your wonderful deserved honeymoon in Jamaica! Sherri and Dan, have an amazing beginning and enjoy all that marriage has to offer!

9.8.18 Josina and Philip


Josina and Philip were my first booking last year for the 2018 wedding season!  They chose Saturday, September 8thto celebrate their perfect day!  Speaking of perfect, this was Josina!  Absolutely stunning in her dress with an unforgettable smile to boot!  She was glowing while her son walked her down the aisle to give her away, Philip watched her with the greatest admiration, it was so sweet.  The barn was filled with an elegance comprising of greenery and lights, lights, lights!  The couple really “branched out” and chose neat trees as centerpieces that were strewn with lights and encircled with candles.  Their sweetheart table with the sequin tablecloth completely gave a romantic vibe, and with a warm glow cast across the barn it just felt so dreamy!  Instead of a guestbook, Josina and Philip chose to have guests write something sweet on a bench that was specially made for just that!  After their wedding they planned to have it lacquered and treasured forever which I thought was so cool!  After dinner, the bride and groom slipped away so Josina could make a temporary change into her cowboy boots and jeans.  The two pulled off an amazing moment with a dance to the song “Fake ID” by Big and Rich. It was surely a crowd pleaser and Philip kept right up with her! Josina worked hard on the gorgeous wedding cake and delicious cupcakes which came from an old recipe from her Grandma!  They were irresistible!  It was a great day and we just wish the happy couple a loveable forever, congratulations!

9.1.18 Sarah and Logan

Sarah and Logan married on the very first day of September!  I loved the whole process from start to finish with these two; so laid-back, easy going and fun!  Sarah was the complete and natural boho bride in her beautiful contemporary lace dress, she carried herself flawlessly!  She was barefoot for the entire day and it just fit in perfectly with her free-spirit style.  Her music selection was so tasteful, from Ramin Djwadi “Heart Shaped Box” to an Elvis ballad, Logan also looked so sharp in his all-black suit with a touch of color in his burgundy rose boutonniere.  Both these colors, along with touches of white, comprised the barn and made it look so classy.  One of our local wedding planner’s Victoria took on the preparation, and with the romantic vintage touches knocked this one out of the park!  Everything was aesthetically detailed just so.  It was a very relaxed day and with the amazing weather we were given it made for an unforgettable event for Sarah and Logan.  We just want to extend a heartfelt congratulations to two very kind people; enjoy all that married life has to give and relish in the great love you share!
