Warm And Sunny California Wedding

The sun was shining, and it was a beautiful California day at Saddlerock Ranch for  Kelley and Patrick’s wedding. With a color palette full of  pretty pinks, bright oranges, and soft yellows their wedding was just as bright and cheery as this spectacular day.

Scroll through to see all the  prettiness! We especially love the honeybee favors, but know you will love everything.  You must see this entire warm and sunny California wedding in the full gallery here, all captured by Chaffin Cade Photography.

Advice From The Bride

Overall, we enjoyed everything about our wedding and wouldn’t have changed a thing! My advice for future brides is to stay organized during the planning process and ask for help when you’re feeling overwhelmed! Stay focused on the things that are important to you and your fiancé. It can be overwhelming when looking at other weddings online or reading wedding magazines.

There are so many resources for brides that it can actually add stress to the planning process. There is no way you can implement every fun idea/décor idea you find online so keep sane by prioritizing your top 3 goals for your wedding and stay focused on those things. The other little details will fall into place and everything will come together on the day of the event!

There are so many fun, quirky aspects to this property, and the images we captured in front of the little yellow school bus became some of our faves. Patrick and Kelley said that their highest priority was that everyone have fun… There was dancing, a gorgeous, massive cake, signature drinks, the breathtaking view… every guest of this wedding will definitely have fun-filled memories!

Wedding lighting is so important.  It sets the tone and ambiance of the evening. Do you love the cascading lights hanging from the trees? It really makes everything feel magical. Don’t you think?
