11/11/17 Bri and Chad

Bri and Chad decided on Saturday, November 11th to say their “I do’s”, and it was such a perfect fall day. A large majority of these lovebirds’ family and friends traveled from the Bay Area, and just a little more south, in what used to be my old stomping grounds! Chad’s Great Grandfather’s restored 1955 Chevy 1/2 ton was used on his 11 acre prune farm in Old Almaden in San Jose where Chad and his groomsmen grew up, while the Gonzalez family on Bri’s side originated from Gilroy and Hollister! Bri looked enchanting in her gown with matching tiara, and Chad was looking sharp in his attire. I loved the country vibe exuding from the wedding party and how navy blue was used so strong in and among the bridesmaids and groomsmen. The cowboy and cowgirl boots along with rustic antler decorations really set the country attitude over the top, it was great! This party went well into the evening and no doubt the guests were enjoying themselves! There was a lot of boot stomping and country dancing mixed with crowd pleasing Mexican dancing music, getting everyone on the dance floor thanks to Net Sound. A huge thank you to Jeff Hall Photography (you can tell which photos are his)  for letting me use his beautiful work for the blog, he sure captured some amazing moments! The whole day was beautiful and ran smoothly thanks to Delphine from The 530 Bride, event coordinating. Bri and Chad, what a privilege it was of ours to host your beautiful wedding here at the Ranch. We are very happy for the two of you and wish you plenty of years filled with happiness and love!

11/6/17 Christie and Nathan

Christie and Nathan created a fun, peacock style themed wedding on Monday, November 6th!  This day was wrapped with love and DIY every which way of the barn!  Christie looked happy in love in her bridal gown she made herself; lace shouldered sleeves with a corset bodice was so fitting for this free spirit!  Nathan was wearing dark purple accents, along with his groomsmen, to tie into the peacock decorations…it was so great!  The creativity was flowing all around the barn, from the dessert table to the wedding card luggage case that was entwined with purples, teal and gold.  It really created a unique evening that was enjoyable by all who attended!  The rich lustrous hue and delicate silhouette of the feathers made every square inch of the barn pop with color!  Christie and Nathan chose to say their vows inside the barn which is a fun alternative to the outside setup; it was a crisp and cool evening so it was a perfect choice!  We had a lovely time hosting this warm couple here at the Ranch.  Christie and Nathan we hope the two of you have a wonderful married life together, enjoy it all!IMG_2233IMG_2234IMG_2236IMG_2237IMG_2240IMG_2241IMG_2252IMG_2254IMG_2243IMG_2247IMG_2255IMG_2256IMG_2267IMG_2268IMG_2269IMG_2270IMG_2271IMG_2276IMG_2278IMG_2279IMG_2284IMG_2285

11/4/17 Jordann and Layn

Jordann and Layn chose Saturday, November 4 to forever promise their love for one another!  What a beautiful day we had out at the Ranch for this great couple!  Jordann was a beauty in ivory lace, and Layn was so strapping in his western wedding attire; together they looked stunning.  The entire wedding party was correlating in navy, dark grey and denim…it all went together so well and made for some nice photos!  Jordann and Layn, with the help of their family, created a beautiful motif in the barn comprising of navy tablecloths with white china and red roses.  The accents of the flowers gave the barn a fun pop!  These simple yet elegant decorations, meshed well with the beautiful natural setting of the barn.  I loved the use of the rustic beverage station that Jordann’s father built, it really tied into the country feel of everything.  It was such a fun day and we truly felt like everyone had the best time!  Another fantastic wedding for the books!  Jordann and Layn, thank you so much for giving us the honor of hosting your wedding here at TBS.  Congratulations and hope you settle down into a new routine of Husband and wife!

10/28/17 Casey and Jason

Casey and Jason celebrated their wedding day on October 28th at the Ranch!  This was such a lovely time to have a wedding, the weather couldn’t have been better for this fall day.  Casey was beautiful in her gown she wore for the ceremony, and her brother walked her down the aisle!  For the reception she decided to change and wore a more comfortable dancing dress that looked just as beautiful!    The gals all wore red while holding sunflowers and it was so fitting with the colors Casey chose for the barn!  Combinations of black and red for the guest tables looked top notch; every place setting had the napkin shaped like a rose it was really unique! When it came time for the wedding party toasting this Bride and Groom, a special announcement was made by Jason and Casey to their kids, a family honeymoon and a 10 day cruise.  The dessert area with their cake was wonderful as well…something had to fuel this party to keep them going all evening!  These folks danced the night away and everyone really looked like they were having the best time!  It was Casey and Jason’s perfect day.  We at TBS want to wish the two of you a happy congratulations and a joyous marriage!     22829906_1797482463627727_6383985962704195384_oIMG_4655IMG_4572IMG_4575IMG_4579IMG_4578IMG_4581IMG_4584IMG_4585IMG_4586IMG_4588IMG_4591IMG_4593IMG_4597IMG_4598IMG_4600IMG_4606IMG_4609IMG_4612IMG_4630IMG_4648

10/26/17 Torynne and Miles

It can take many months, up to over a year for couples to completely design and fulfil their dream wedding.  Torynne and Miles decided a mere 6 weeks before October 26th that they wanted their wedding to be at the Ranch!  I have never seen a wedding so beautiful be planned in such a short amount of time!  This evening was perfect for these two, I just loved it!  Torynne had a striking cap sleeve, open back bridal dress that looked gorgeous on her, and Miles looked amazing as well; they did a first look before the ceremony and it was special to witness. After the bridesmaids made their entrance over the bridge, the sounds of a bag pipe player were heard, leading in a beautiful Torynne and her handsome father.  The ceremony was sincere and after that came dinner and fun!  A beautiful sectional couch was brought in and set up outside the barn with blankets so people could relax in the fair fall weather.  Games were set up outside as well such as Jenga and Ladder Toss!  The inside of the barn looked phenomenal, it was so elegant with the darker grey table clothes and glassware and candles everywhere.  I was so happy to have these two wonderful people celebrate their love with us, Torynne and Miles we wish you a beautiful life together as newlyweds!

10/14/17 Raynelle and Jim

Raynelle and Jim decided to renew their wedding vows and to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary with a destination wedding at the Ranch on October 14th!  Most of the wedding party and guests were not from the Redding area, but have visited Redding many times over the years. It was a beautiful day to have two people come together and recreate what vows they said many years ago.  Raynelle had a lovely halter style bridal dress that looked fantastic on her, and while her brother Jason walked her down the aisle he also officiated the ceremony!  It was heartfelt vows mixed with touches of laughter that was felt by everyone.  The barn had so many decorations in it, creating quite the party for later in the evening!  Slippers were set up for gals to get comfortable on the dancing floor, while a kids table kept the young ones busy for hours!  Dancing was carried well into the night and the DJ turned into karaoke which was a fun surprise!  Couches with blankets and beautiful chairs were set up to keep guests comfortable and warm into the cooler fall evening, and plenty of desserts were set up to satisfy the sweet tooth!  Raynelle and Jim we wish you congratulations on 25 years, what an accomplishment!  We are so happy you came to the Ranch to celebrate! Thank you T’s candid shots from Anderson for some great photos, and SFK Sign painting for your beautiful work. 22548769_1723330231041807_6639418401257519858_o22548876_1723333644374799_224082204378533729_o22553206_1723332734374890_2217943150850431404_o22555316_1723332471041583_8768697735589282539_o22553310_1723334801041350_2085401834032611958_oIMG_4131

10/13/17 David and Andrew

David and Andrew chose to say their special vows at the Ranch on Friday, October 13th!  It was such a fabulous day for a celebration of two people joining their lives together and sharing it with friends and family! I have to say, David and Andrew truly are such a warm and kind couple; you could tell how fortunate they are in their lives in terms of love and kindness! Both of them looked top notch in their tuxedos, Andrew in maroon and David in navy; the same fall colors flowed into the barn!  I loved the set up with the wedding party/family table front and center, with David and Andrew at the head of the table, and all the guest tables stationed on each side.  Stylish brown wood chairs were brought in for the ceremony and dinner from “Rustic Charm wedding Rentals” and it really gave the barn that added flair.  Centerpieces consisting of old cigar boxes and flowers were created by Andrew, while his sister made an extraordinary cake!  It gave off an antique vibe and it blended so well with the rest of the decorations.  We want to wish these two a happy marriage filled with lifelong love, congratulations!   Image-1.png-2Image-1.png-4Image-1.png-5Image-1.pngImage-2.pngImage-4.pngImage.png-2Image.png-3

10/8/17 Victoria and Kyle

Victoria and Kyle created the perfect wedding for themselves on Sunday October 8th!  What lengths this beautiful gal went to creating the wedding of her dreams! It was a fabulous day leading up to a magnificent evening.  Victoria just looked phenomenal in her bridal gown and adding Kyle on her arm put the two of them over the top!  I loved how the bridesmaids were each in a different gown and together the entire wedding party looked great!  Following a sweet ceremony there was a yummy dinner catered by local Mary’s Pizza Shack!  The barn was decorated to the nines with elegant colors ranging from black, maroon, and green; it gave off a very eclectic vibe but it all flowed together so well!  I loved the incredible design of the macramé back drop that was originally on the altar and then fashioned behind the bride and groom in the barn, it was gorgeous!  A lot of work went into creating this perfect day and it was executed flawlessly.  The couple has taken their honeymoon in St. Lucia, what a fantastic way to carry on the fun!  We want to sincerely wish Victoria and Kyle congratulations and cheers to a happy healthy life as man and wife!  Special thanks to Jack Vu Photography for sharing his fantastic photos of this beautiful event. kv-2kv-3kv-4kv-5kv-6kv-10kv-11kv-12kv-15kv-17kv-19kv-27kv-31kv-32kv-44kv-45kv-46kv-47kv-49kv-50kv-51kv-54kv-57kv-60kv-61kv-62kv-63kv-64kv-65kv-67kv-70kv-73kv-74kv-75kv-78kv-79kv-81

10/7/17 Amber and Zach

Amber and Zach carefully chose Saturday October 7th for their special wedding day!  Family and friends gathered to celebrate these two down to earth individuals becoming one, and what a special fun day it was!  Amber looked timeless in her gown and has a beauty both inside and out, while Zach certainly looked strapping and matched his groomsmen so well.  The entire wedding party coordinated with the men in burlap looking vests and maroon shirts, matching the bridesmaids with their ¾ sleeve dresses in the same colors; it all came together with the feeling of romance and rustic country.  The barn radiated a classic down home feel that was felt welcomed by all who attended.  The atmosphere was topped off with a silly photo booth decked out with wacky hats and shades!  To top it off there was an ice cream truck after dinner creating yummy sweets for the guests!  It was a day to remember for these two and what a fantastic full moon to cap off this fall evening!  Amber and Zach, we truly enjoyed having you both out at the Ranch to celebrate your wedding day and we wish you a happy life together rich in love!
