Do something creative and romantic for your wedding celebration: consider a Shabby Chic affair at Beltane Ranch. Beltane Ranch is a working ranch in the heart of Sonoma. The ranch was established in 1878 and is home to lush gardens and a charming bed and breakfast. The property abounds with natural elements: fruit orchards, grape vineyards, and an organic cattle ranch make attending a wedding at Beltane Ranch a unique experience for your family and friends. This amazing wedding was documented by the incredibly talented Rosemarie Lion - her story telling by way of a camera is a great way to capture your amazing love story.
Offer ceremony seating with simple white, natural, or iron scroll folding chairs, which sets a perfect tone. A traditional aisle runner can be a challenge in a rustic setting. I would recommend using potted plants in brightly colored containers. Hydrangea or other large full blossoms look wonderful. A more traditional bride may want to consider using flower petals scattered down each side of the aisle - either option is a simple and charming way to get a bit of soft romance into the look of your ceremony.
Turn your outdoor garden wedding into something extraordinary by playing up the setting with unique and surprising touches. A vintage typewriter would be a great solution as a guest book. Serving root beer, cream soda, or Sarsaparilla is a refreshing way to set a casual mood.
The massive and ancient oak tree is a stunning backdrop for photography. However, when combined with a gorgeous antique love seat and then adorned with a crystal chandelier hanging from it's ancient bows, this tree turns from backdrop to center stage.
