Amy + Jason | Garrett Richardson Photography | Leo Carrillo Ranch

Every detail counts when planning a wedding. For A + J, their day was filled with glorifying beauty at the Ranch with how exceptional everything came together. A fully bloomed garland vined artistically around our  Pepper Tree for their ceremony, a simple but brimful display of burgundy and greenery floral made for a show stopping reception, along with a pop of gold mixed chargers for a defining accent to the tables. Not only did they present an appealing dessert bar for their guests, they thanked them with an additional sweet treat stop – a candy bar! This couple’s wedding was another one for the books that was irresistible to not share! Thank you to everyone who played a part in their big day!

To another dreamy day at the Ranch! Family and friends were joined together for A + A’s wedding that brought vintage, gold, and beauty in every form. CBS Lifestyle Stylist accented the venue with their floral and other little details. The SD Photo Bus parked their VW Bus that added that vintage flare that we love at the Ranch for a fun photobooth for their guests. Congratulations to A + A!

Katie + Adrian | Shane & Lauren Photography | Leo Carrillo Ranch

Yes! We are so excited to share K + A’s wedding! Seriously, we could not forget a couple like them, with their genuine personalities and their supply of character. Their smiles were so contagious that you could tell from each photo that Shane + Lauren Photography captured had nothing but pure love and happiness. We also couldn’t get over their love of baseball – one team in particular! – and the dashing choice of colors that spread throughout the Ranch. Dahlias, Marigolds, succulents and draping Eucalyptus made for an elegant statement from the ever-talented, The Dainty Lion. K + A definitely knew how to keep their guests on their feet with endless dancing and laughter. A tasty dessert bar finished off for a sweet ending, just like these two. To say we were happy to be apart of their special day was definitely an understatement!

Beth + Joey | Plum & Oak Photography | Leo Carrillo Ranch

  Sweet love and happiness for J + B! Their wedding was attractive to the eye, with a soft and graceful color pallet of blush and greenery. Though they had a bridal party, they kept their ceremony simple and intimate to just the two of them when reciting their vows. Centerpieces displayed a charming rustic theme with wood stumps and mason jars, and succulent favors as a thank you for their guests. What kept the night alive were the satisfied dancers until the end to a wedding come true for the beautiful couple!

A special thank you to Plum & Oak Photography for capturing this magical story for J + B!

Jessica + Chris | Acqua Photography | Leo Carrillo Ranch

This wedding was a jaw dropping beauty! J + C first welcomed their family and friends with a Pre Traditional Tea Ceremony, then joined together for their next ceremony under our Pepper Tree designed with hanging Dream Catchers and gold pineapples along the aisle. The reception tables were adorned with vibrant floral centerpieces, a “Let Love Grow” fruit stand, and details of hand made pillows and photos throughout the rest of the venue. This couple was such a pleasure to be around, and we loved everything about their special day at the Ranch!

Thank you Acqua Photography! You guys never disappoint with breathtaking photos!

 What a beautiful day to celebrate the wedding of M + K!  They kept their ceremony to the original charm of the Ranch, repeating their heart felt vows to each other under our Pepper Tree. For the reception, we witnessed their passion for travel, and had their table numbers represent the cities that they’ve been to together, including mini iron bicycles as seating cards – a creative touch! – along with Studio Fleurish’s eye catching spring blooms that never disappoint. Not to forget, they shared the Lithuanian culture with us, and treated their guests with the ever-so delicious Lithuanian cake, amongst other favored sweets. It was definitely a day to remember for these two, and their love was undeniable!
