04.05.19 Samantha and Justin

Samantha and Justin tied the knot on Friday, April 5th!  I have to say I was not counting on nice weather this day; Friday morning and afternoon POURED. But, just before the wedding the clouds parted while the sun broke through giving us a brisk 63 degrees for the ceremony.  Samantha was relaxed and happy wearing a bridal dress that gave a strapless illusion but had a sheer top attached which was very modern.  Stepping out of the bridal suite she locked eyes with her Groom immediately and presented the prettiest smile all the way to him.  She carried a beautiful bouquet assembled by Anderson Florist and her gals were in mint green looking ever so springy! Their wedding planner, Victoria Montieth, incorporated Samantha’s mint green with white in the barn and created yet another gorgeous interior.  Mary’s Pizza Shack catered some yummy pizzas, while Sublime Cake Designs created a wedding cake that looked like it had melted gold on it!  Taste & See Creamery also provided several flavors of their delicious handmade ice cream it was a total hit.  A sweet night for a sweet couple, Samantha and Justin we hope your day was everything you planned; enjoy the future you’ll create together!

03.23.19 Alyssa and Bailey

Wow, it’s good to be back! Here we are kicking off the 2019 wedding season and I am so excited to introduce Alyssa and Bailey that wed on Saturday, March 23rd! What a trip we had for weather that day; between the clouds and sun playing peek-a-boo to the massive thunderstorms shortly after the ceremony, we truly experienced it all! Alyssa was a gorgeous bride donning the prettiest hair and makeup that enhanced her natural beauty! She walked down the aisle to greet her man and I could tell these two lovebirds have a “lightning bolt love”; with the thunder and lightning in the background during the ceremony, that became a true testament to their day. The barn had rustic furnishings by Barn Door Rentals,flowers by Jessica Florals Inc. and Katelyn Parra Productions took some amazing photos. Redding BBQ had a fantastic dinner, all the while “Video Productions” was creating photos and live footage to last through the ages. The cupcakes were scrumptious made by a family friend and the naked cake topper was adorable. We could not be happier for Alyssa and Bailey, we wish the happy couple a lifetime of love and cherished memories. Thank you Parra Productions for the professional pictures!

11.04.18 Valya &Martin

Valya and Martin were our last wedding of the 2018 season!  They chose Sunday, November 4th to tie the knot and begin their journey as newlyweds!  While November can be a dreary month for weddings, this day delivered amazing weather…we were truly blessed.  I adored these two all throughout the process from start to finish; the connection I felt with them made everything flow seamlessly.  Valya was a beautiful Bride with a beautiful soul, she had a way about her that people couldn’t help be enamored with.  Martin looked so sharp in his black tuxedo and I loved the way he loved on his blushing bride; these two were meant for each other!  The barn was captivating in lovely signs, abundance of flowers and a delectable semi naked wedding cake!  This day was an amazing start to what would be an amazing voyage into husband and wife.  Unbeknownst to them, a mere 4 days later on November 8th, life would change without much notice.  Martin and Valya fell prey to the Camp Fire in Paradise, Ca.  Them, along with a greater portion of their wedding guests lived in the Paradise area and with grave news lost most of their homes.  Words cannot express the sadness that is in my heart to imagine going through something like this.  Paradise is strong and is driven to rebuild, and we will continue to pray for them along with everyone else who fell victim.  Valya and Martin, we pray your future is filled with beautiful moments surrounded by family and friends, congratulations and best wishes.

10.25.18 Maddie and Justin

Maddie and Justin celebrated their love and wed on Thursday, October 25th!  It was a perfect day for Northern California!  With Maddie’s bridesmaids in burgundy and the groomsmen matching accordingly, it lent itself beautifully to this lovely autumn afternoon. The glowing Bride wore a gown that was soft and flowy with a beautiful long train. For a day in late October, Maddie chose perfectly! Maddie’s Dad put together a beautiful arbor made of driftwood from the coast.  The ceremony was sweet and made way into an amazing dinner by Maxwell’s.  The barn was decorated with sweet signs and fun photos of the bride and groom.  We hope that everyone had a wonderful time and are so glad Justin and Maddie chose to marry at the Ranch.  Congratulations to these loveable, kind individuals that have made the decision to become lifelong partners.  Enjoy all that your new life unfolds before you!

10.18.19 Kendra and Chris

Kendra and Chris said their vows on Thursday, October 18th! Kendra was a stunning bride and had a smile on her that just radiated.  She looked beautiful as she walked down the aisle to her loving man Chris who looked sharp in his black pinstripe tux!  The morning of the wedding Chris and his groomsmen took on a lot of the setup to give Kendra a chance to visit with her girls and relax a little.  He made sure to create their perfect day just as how Kendra envisioned it!  The ceremony was officiated by Chris’ brother and following that was the reception with Kendra’s parents taking on the DJ role and playing some great music!  The barn was decorated with statues of whimsical skeleton couples as Kendra really enjoys Halloween! They even had one on their wedding cake and their theme certainly made a striking statement for their guests!  Colors of blue and purple were in and among the decorations, flowers, and bridesmaids dresses and it completely fit with the idea Kendra had.  We want to wish these two a lifetime of love and happiness. We hope you savor in the fact that you’re together forever, congratulations! IMG_5535IMG_5537IMG_5538IMG_5539IMG_5540IMG_5541IMG_5542IMG_5543IMG_5551IMG_5545IMG_5552IMG_5546IMG_5553IMG_5547IMG_5548IMG_5549IMG_5550IMG_5554IMG_5556IMG_5557IMG_5558IMG_5559IMG_5560IMG_5561IMG_5562IMG_5563IMG_5564IMG_5565IMG_5566IMG_5567IMG_5568IMG_5569IMG_5570IMG_5571IMG_5572IMG_5573IMG_5574IMG_5576IMG_5578IMG_5579IMG_5580IMG_5581IMG_5582IMG_5583IMG_5584IMG_5585IMG_5586IMG_5587IMG_5588IMG_5589IMG_5590IMG_5591IMG_5592IMG_5593IMG_5594IMG_5595IMG_5596IMG_5597IMG_5598IMG_5599IMG_5602IMG_5609IMG_5610IMG_5612IMG_5613IMG_5614IMG_5615IMG_5616IMG_5617IMG_5618IMG_5620IMG_5622IMG_5623IMG_5624IMG_5629IMG_5631IMG_5632IMG_5638IMG_5640IMG_5641IMG_5643

10.14.18 Jodie and Ryan

Jodie and Ryan said their cherished vows on Sunday, October 14th!  I don’t think this day could have been any windier, but despite the weather their celebration went off without a hitch!  Jodie looked amazing in her dress and wow did her makeup look on point; she had such an amazing beautiful aura surrounding her.  Ryan and his groomsmen all had grey suits on with just a pop of color in their ties; I liked how Ryanwore a bowtie to stand out from his best guys.  The color choice for the bridesmaids was an elegant plum, and with their bouquets in hand they looked perfect for a fall wedding.  The barn was nicely decorated all around, and with the addition of a few sequined rose gold tablecloths it added some pizzazz to the place!  Their semi naked cake was surrounded by lush eucalyptus and had a couple delicate roses to bring out the feminine side.  It was a sweet reception and at the end of the night the lovely Mr. and Mrs. said their goodbyes and left in a car decorated with “just married”!  Jodie and Ryan we wish you a great marriage filled with love and happiness; embrace everything that comes to you in this new life!
