From Cameron Ingalls:
What an emotional wedding!!! There was so much love and sentiment that it was impossible for everyone present to not shed a tear or two; including me. The groom wept profusely during the ceremony (and speeches) and I LOVE it! I’m always super happy after I shoot a Santa Margarita Ranch wedding. Especially when I get to work with such amazing vendors!

Ellie and Christian’s wedding day is a gorgeous testament of what you can pull off with some hard work and planning. But Ellie also knew when to call in an expert to help her organize her big day. Vanessa Noel Events whose passion is in the details–the angle of the table numbers, the perfect placement of the programs and the just-right varying heights of a candy buffet. She believes that no bride should do something because that’s “how it’s supposed to be,” and lives to make things pretty and her clients happy.

From Vanessa Noel Events:
Throughout the wedding, there were many perfectly placed homages to Ellie and Christian’s love of cooking together. They created custom favors filled with spices–hand stamped with a thank you tag, of course! Ellie’s bouquet was accented with basil for a wonderfully fragrant surprise and the two planted a potted herb together during their ceremony to symbolize the beginning of their lives together. And what’s food without wine? Christian and Ellie chose to celebrate their vineyard wedding with tiny cork disks that guests threw as they walked back up the aisle after the ceremony.

It was a priority to sprinkle photos of them together throughout the venue. We didn’t just use their engagement photos, we incorporated photos from early childhood and on into their relationship at the dessert table and in the chicken wire and doily escort card display. They take so much pride in their home and wanted that homey feeling reflected in their wedding. We incorporated pillows, blankets, candles, decorative pieces–even vintage furniture–from their home. These details made the entire day feel so much like them!

From The Bride:
I can’t really say I would have done anything majorly different! There are some minor material things, but all in all I really tried to do my homework and everything went super smooth.  So as for the material issues; I would have double checked that someone was on top of making sure there were no cars in the immediate parking area for the ceremony.  There is a white car that is in the background of some pictures and video footage, but it surely is not the end of the world.  Also, I decided not to have a string quartet or even a duo for the ceremony and I think in the end that would still be my preference – a personal decision and by no means would it ‘make or break’ someones big day!
