So of course we had to share with you Scott and Kirsten’s ranch style wedding. Below is the wedding story from White Haute. Let us just say the population of the town where the wedding was held was a whopping 18.
My first pinch was on the drive to the wedding site, a town called Parkfield, population 18. We drove for 15 miles on a one-lane road, passing horse pastures and thousands of cattle. The hand-painted wooden signs kept us on track, but when we reached the town itself, we blinked and missed it, heading another several miles past our destination. After a few dirt roads and some frantic phone calls with one half a bar of cell service, we realized our mistake and returned to the town. When you park, you look to your left and see one half of the town, the Parkfield Lodge. Turn to your right, and the other half greets you, the Parkfield Cafe.
Now this isn’t just any old town in the middle of nowhere, it happens to be the Earthquake Capital of the World, a town with more scientific equipment monitoring the ground than anywhere else on the planet. It was definitely a unique setting, but the details really made this wedding spectacular. The groom in his custom cowboy hat and boots, the handmade leather photo guest book the couple made themselves, the rustic feel of the celebration made us feel like part of a huge family, and it was amazing to witness. Thank you to the girls at XOXO Bride for putting on such a spectacular event.
Enjoy Scott and Kirsten’s ranch style wedding!
