Crafty Fun Caballos Ranch Wedding

It may be the middle of winter, but that will not stop us from sharing a litte more bright and colorful prettiness with you. This time we are headed for San Luis Obispo, California; home to one of our favorite Hand-Picked florists April Flowers. This top notch floral designer is responsible for that beautiful bouquet above and all the sweet and lovely flowers at this crafty fun Caballos Ranch Wedding.

From the bride….
As soon as Tim and I saw the Flying Caballos Ranch portrayed on a wedding blog, we knew it was where we’d get married.  We booked it before we even saw it in person!  With most of our family travelling from out-of-state, we knew we wanted to maximize time with them, so we booked the ranch for the whole weekend so our intermediate family could stay on property with us.  We invited all the out-of-town family to a casual rehearsal barbeque on Friday night as well as a brunch on Sunday morning.  It all turned out so well! Everyone had such a fun time together.
Planning was actually a lot of fun!  It’s kind of amazing to look back and see how it all just came together!  We wanted a fun, festive, this-is-us feeling to exude from the moment our guests stepped on the ranch.  I think we achieved hat through all the crafty projects we worked so hard on – the bunting flags, hand-made napkins, yarn-wrapped wine bottles, burlap table runners.  My Mom was so amazing – she made the embroidered table numbers and the sock monkey cake toppers as well as revamping her wedding veil so I could wear it; that was so special to me.  We carefully chose all of the music to reflect our personalities and were lucky enough to find a fantastic local rock/blues band play at cocktail hour.  We bought all of our wine from the winery where we got engaged in Sonoma. I whole-heartedly believe the whole event wouldn’t have come together without all the help from our family and friends in the days leading up to the big day. And our vendors!  They were all just fabulous!  It was so fun to work with each of them.  They totally ‘got’ us and made very helpful suggestions to help make our day so special.  We live in bustling San Francisco and it was so refreshing to go to San Luis Obispo every other month and enjoy the laid-back attitude and beauty of the area.  Sure there were hiccups during the planning process and, of course, on the actual day, but we were just so happy to finally get married. And to make those vows in such a special place.  It was truly our dream wedding!
