Nestled in the hills of San Luis Obispo, California, Flying Caballos Ranch is a charmingly rustic location that was the perfect setting for Stephanie and Aaron’s picnic themed brunch wedding. Captured in these stunning images by Jen Rodriguez, the day was relaxed and filled with live music by The Honey Trees, dancing, and of course breakfast from Zest It Up!

From Jen Rodriguez:
Both the bride and groom have an amazing sense of style that didn’t go unnoticed that day. Aside from Steph’s gorgeous ivory, open backed, crocheted wedding dress, she wore a mint faux druzy head piece and a selection of fun accessories. Aaron wore a dapper grey suit with chukka boots.
The bridal parties wore a mix of different patterns and textures, and they all looked amazing. The ceremony was held in the open field space behind the ranch. The ceremony backdrop was crafted by Stephanie’s dad. From the backdrop hung hundreds of paper flowers in a variety of patterns.
How cute is this picnic style wedding reception! And it is so easy to do, just grab several blankets, a bit of lace, some stemware, and freshly cut flowers. Oh and don’t forget the tree stumps… where should you go and find such large piece of lumber. We suggest calling around to several tree trimming services, or even your public parks to see if they have cut down any trees recently.
The reception space was decorated with a mixture of tables and chairs as well as an assortment of quilts and blankets placed on the ground. The blankets sat under wood stumps that served as tables for the guests vintage glasses.
Once the reception got underway the couple had two different musical performances including two songs by The Honey Trees. Dinner was inspired by Stephanie’s favorite meal of the day, Breakfast! Zest It Up! catering created some out of this world’s most delicious items for the guests to enjoy before they danced the night away under the stars.
