4/9/16-Local 185 Laborer’s Annual Event-Corporate Event Venue Redding, CA,

LOVE LOVE LOVE having the crowd from the Local 185 every year.  I think that this one was the 10th with us?  Always a good time, but we had to miss it this year and have staff cover for us.  It was held on the same day as my Aunt’s 80th Birthday party in Portland, and we couldn’t miss that.  You only get to celebrate your 80th Birthday once, and I will get the opportunity to see my friends from the Local 185 next April, and I will have that to look forward to!




4/2/16 – Stacey and Sam – Redding Wedding Venue, Redding Barn Wedding


IMG_6583Congratulations to Stacey and Sam!!!  They are such a classy couple, but not stuffy classy. The kind classy that all of us want to achieve and look up to.  Their wedding was the perfect reflection of that.  VERY classy and elegant, but did not have the stuffy part.  It was very relaxed and OH SO STUNNING.  This was a Gwen event (Gwen Edwardson Events) and as always she, along with her team of what I call “Gwen’s girls”, did an amazing job bringing Stacey’s vision of her day to life.  The vibe of this day was so amazing.  I was able to get a LOT of pictures because when Gwen and her girls are on staff, it makes my day a lot less hectic.  I only hope that the pictures I am sharing will capture just a bit of the magic of this day (=

We wish Stacey and Sam the very best!!!!

IMG_6568Congratulations to Kaylee and James!!!  What a STUNNING fairytale day they had!  The balloons and bright colors were festive, and just perfect backdrop for the awesome spring day they had.  It was  magical, and the vibe was fun, yet very classy.  Because Kaylee and her team were so organized my job was easy, thus I had some spare time to take a lot awesome pictures of the great details of this wedding.  Hope you enjoy!

Congratulations to Ashley and Jared!  Oh my goodness the weather made up for the previous week.  How can we go from storm of the century to absolute perfect spring day in 7 days?  Only in Redding (=  The weather was not the only perfect factor at this stunning wedding.  The vibe was so fresh and happy, and Ashley AMAZING!  Lovely couple, lovely day and we wish them the VERY best!!!

3/12/16 – Mary and Thomas / Redding Wedding Venue, Barn Wedding Redding


Congratulations to Mary and Thomas!!!  What a great season opener for us!  These two and their families are just such LOVELY people.  You might recall that we had quite a storm that weekend.  It will go down in history as the storm that filled Lake Shasta in 2 days!  Mary and Thomas did not let the rain dampen their amazing day.  They were both radiantly happy, and the rain actually enhanced the romantic vibe of this day.  The barn looked amazing and had a glow that was so beautiful.

The old wives tale says that rain on your wedding day will bring good luck.  If that rings true, Mary and Thomas should stock up on lottery tickets!  They had enough rain on their day for a lifetime of luck (=  We wish them the very best!!!!!

2/21/16 – Redding Bridal Show Expo Center- Redding Wedding Show, Redding Wedding Venue


IMG_5891OH MY GOODNESS did I have fun at this show! Not only did I get to talk chat with so many future brides, but one of my favorite people, Lisa Stewart, came to help me out!  Lisa was married at the ranch in September 2009.  Her and her husband Kasey bought the house next door so now not only are they one of my brides and grooms, they are my neighbors!  LOVE them both and have enjoyed watching their family grow.  Lisa volunteered to help me at my booth and I’m so happy she did.  I couldn’t have done it without her!

We both had a total BLAST chatting with everyone that stopped by, and I have already met with a few of you at the ranch.  I also need to say a special thanks to Gwen and her helpers of Gwen Edwardson Events for decorating my booth for me, and the Floranthropist for putting together the amazing flowers for my booth.   It looked amazing!


This is Lisa and Kasey in September 2009 on their wedding day at the TBS Ranch.



Lisa and her girls (= Isn’t she lovely!


Beautiful flowers from the Floranthropist.  Thank you so much!!!!

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!!!!
