California Ranch Wedding

wedding hair and makeup

Naomi and Paul chose a beautiful setting for their big day, the Walnut Grove ranch. With gorgeous open expanses perfect for pictures, it was the ideal place to start making their memories as a couple! The bride’s beautiful Watters gown from Lili Bridals, the lovely florals by Belle of the Ball Designs, and  the darling stationery from Starboard Press, lent a charming quality to the day while the overall design of the wedding by Mia Bella Weddings was rustic elegance at it’s finest.Trust us, you won’t wan this wedding to end.

Naomi and Paul incorporated a lot of DIY details and heirlooms from their past, including a round suitcase as their card holder, which belonged to Naomi’s grandmother.

From the Bride:
Each ribbon on our Chuppah was gifted to me from family and friends during my bridal showers. They were hung on the Chuppah to represent the importance of community and how each person in our lives has contributed to the strength of our relationship and our home.

To add some rustic natural charm to your wedding consider using big wine barrels to support your table tops. Easy to transport, easy to set up, and oh so easy on the eye!

I am thankful to say that there really isn’t much that I would have done differently on our wedding day.  The only thing that comes to mind is our grand exit. We had decided to do a grand exit using my husband’s 1964 Ford Galaxy. When the time came, the car would not start!

    Gorgeous, gorgeous wedding! Love the colours – I have a question if anyone knows the answer, what is the poster they are signing along with the official documents? It looks like its own beautiful contract. Never seen anything like it before – it’s stunning!
