Dreamy Ceremony

Our Wedding took place at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu CA, truly a breathtaking site. Our ceremony was held under a 100 year old Oak Tree where cascading twinkle lights stretched down from long branches. At the altar we overlooked all our family and friends from a cantilevered ivy surrounded perch. It felt like we were living in a fairy-tale.

Twinkle lights and more

After the ceremony we all made our way along a sycamore lined pathway lit with candles. Entering the Pavilion is reminiscent of a grand country wedding from times past. Flowing white drapes and amber twinkling lights lined the elegant white tent on a country deck with views of the meadows and the vineyards of the Malibu Wine Country beyond. Our reception also came with a magnificent Ferris Wheel that lit up the night sky.

Just Married

At the end of the night a white vintage Rolls Royce drove us away into the night as we waived goodbye to all of our guests. This was truly a night we wish we could relive again and again, a night we will never forget.

Rustic Venue

The style and history of the Mill made it the perfect spot for our day. It has just the right rustic elegance that spoke to both of our personalities. Our ceremony was outside just before sunset & the reception was inside to keep our guests warm from a brisk November night.

thoughtful diy details

Over the course of a year, I was able to plan every detail of this day. The decor, flowers, cakes, playlist, and even my dress alterations were done by me, my mom & bridesmaids. I hand wrote all of the signage, created the “love” marquee sign, and collected and arranged all of the centerpieces. However, I’m most proud of the wagon wheel mason jar chandelier I crafted. It was the perfect touch for our ceremony spot.

consider hiring a videographer

We so recommend hiring a videographer, we were fortunate enough to have one in the family! My uncle was able to capture all of the little moments that we missed or had forgotten about in the excitement and chaos of the day. I hadn’t given much thought to a wedding video, but it has been so wonderful to be able to relive our day!
