Katie + Jose | True Photography | Leo Carrillo Ranch

It’s Fall! – One of our favorite wedding seasons at the Ranch! What better way to share a couple who involved plenty of charisma, energy, and a zombie apocalypse cake into their big day! K + J were such a pleasure to be around and had full of raw and vibrant love. We thank True Photography for all of their captured moments!

Kelly + Jonathon | A Family Affair | Leo Carrillo Ranch

Weddings are a celebration where family and friends are joined together for the couple. With K + J’s wedding, not only was it a very intimate ceremony with close family and friends, but their bridal party consisted of their dads, moms, aunts and cousins, which was a very special moment to witness. Their wedding was kept simple, yet alluring with the Sunflower blooms, by the talented Studio Fleurish. We thank Shane and Lauren Photography for capturing these shots on that beautiful August day at the Ranch.

Becca + Shawn | Rad and In Love Photography | Leo Carrillo Ranch

Talk about a wedding that had that flowy, modern boho feel – B + S definitely knew how to create that atmosphere for their big day. Every part of the venue screamed picturesque with the rugs going down the aisle for their ceremony, pink dipped linens for their dining tables, and even personalized tattoos for their guests! It was a special day, and we couldn’t have been more impressed with how everything turned out!

A special thank you to Jamie, with Rad and In Love Photography, for these amazing shots!

Nikki + Greg | All About the Details | Leo Carrillo Ranch

Lets just stop for a minute, and take in the true essence of beauty in this wedding. To start, N + G celebrated a heartfelt ceremony with an added wine box ceremony to join the unity of the two. From there, we witnessed every little detail that the couple took the time to make their special day come to life. With the own bride’s jaw dropping signage implicated throughout the venue,  a reception designed to make you swoon, Serendipity Events putting together the bright and luscious floral, and just love and genuine happiness from the couple themselves their perfect day radiated throughout the Ranch and we were so happy to have shared it with them.

Thank you to Jamie B Photography for these photos!

Anne + Chad | Love and Peacocks at the Ranch | Leo Carrillo Ranch

We always love having different themes at the Ranch. Like this one, this couple brought all things western, rustic, and a touch of peacock! For their ceremony, they were joined together under our Wash House vined with loose greenery and floral by Suzan Merrill. As their big day went on, they were showered with a delicious cupcake bar from Sweet Cheeks Baking Company, shared laughter and smiles on that dance floor thanks to DJ Andy, and Heather Elise Photography created the magic with her impeccable shots for A + C.

Colleen + Irvin | A Blissful Wedding | Leo Carrillo Ranch

It gives us great joy to share this simple, yet blissful wedding of C + I. We witnessed this couple’s infectious smiles and humble personalities. Their florist, Tessa Drysdale, complimented the venue with the florals enhancing colors and assorted centerpieces. Mariachi Fiesta Mexicana performed for both their ceremony and cocktail hour, giving that extra charm to their special day. To top it off, Hazelnut Photography took detailed photos, that even our special friends from the Ranch were able to sneak in to make C + I’s photos that much more magical.
