Veronica + Tyler – Colored with Culture at Leo Carrillo Ranch

We loved this day! Veronica and Tyler shared their “I Dos” with us at the Ranch with flair and color. Their fiesta theme was one to remember! Veronica stunned in her lace white gown with a Spanish veil that wowed. Their tables were covered in colorful serape table runners underneath vases filled with pinto beans alongside cacti and cans filled with florals. Colorful papel picado was strung along the market lights to add that extra color – love it! Their escort cards were adorable and in the form of limes with toothpicks. Towards the end of the night, guests took the tiny ceramic magnets as wedding favors to remember Veronica and Tyler’s big day! As always, we love clever signs and “Fiesta today, Siesta mañana” did not disappoint!

Megan + Mike: Married at Leo Carrillo Ranch

Megan and Mike celebrated their day of love with us at Leo Carrillo Ranch and we’re so glad they did! Their day was filled with simple elegance from the beginning – even our resident peacocks loved it! The bridesmaids’ bouquets complimented their beige dresses perfectly. The newlyweds got married in front of our pretty pepper tree, wrapped in a gorgeous garland of greens and florals by The Bloom of Time. The reception featured farm tables, adorned in more greens and florals. All of these details were perfectly and wonderfully captured Morgan Hydinger.

Jenna + Chris – So Chic at the Ranch

Jenna and Chris celebrated their special day with us at the Ranch – and did so with flair! The newlyweds shared their vows in front of the Hacienda, decorated with desert plants in stunning white vases, towering on wooden pillars. Their dinner tables were adorned in eucalyptus leaves, succulents and assorted florals – accompanied with tall, white cylindrical candles. Lounge furniture was used at the head table for the Bride and Groom and for guests to mingle around. We loved every part of this wedding! And, of course, we LOVE witty hashtags! (see last picture of mantel)

The Sweetest Sweetheart Table Details

Among all of the decisions that Brides and Grooms face during wedding planning, there is the choice between a sweetheart table and a head table. There are, of course, quite a few different ways to look at this debate. If you go with a head table you can be surrounded by your nearest and dearest (and most fun!) friends and family. But, if you go with a  sweetheart table you do not have to worry about having about the number of seats getting out of hand after you add in all of their dates!  And our favorite reason to have a sweetheart table…… they are so much fun to decorate! Whether the couple wants to keep it more simple, or go all out, we love how floral and other personal items really dress up the table and make it stand out! These are just a few recent examples from the Ranch 🙂

Alexis + Dom – Eclectic Wedding at Leo Carrillo Ranch

Alexis and Dom’s wedding wowed us because we loved their eclectic theme! From the bridesmaids’ peony dresses to the threaded seating chart to the blue and wood wicker furniture – we love every detail this wedding entailed. Florals by The Dainty Lion and styled by Samantha Louise Moments made this wedding magical. We love the details that went into the table decor as well. The blush-colored glassware added that extra touch that shows in every reception picture – taken by Let’s Frolic Together. Alexis and Dom’s ceremony was absolutely stunning and concluded with their guests blowing bubbles as they recessed down the aisle. Towards the end of the night, the newlyweds shared their First Dance under our stringed market lights.

Alisa + Nathan – Fiesta of Love at The Ranch

We love couples that use a theme for their big day and Alisa and Nathan did “Fiesta” perfectly! This included a Mariachi Band, ‘Señor’ and ‘Señora’ chair signs and white papel picado strung on the market lights at the Ranch. We love it! Alisa’s bridesmaids blushed in blush-colored gowns and Nathan’s bow tie matched perfectly. Zelo Photography captured and shared these special pictures with us.

Liz + Brian – Pop of Color at Leo Carrillo Ranch

Liz and Brian got married at the Ranch and did so with color! Liz’s bouquet perfectly matched the bougainvilleas on the Ranch. As a wonderful accent color, the newlyweds used bright blue candlesticks to adorn the tables. The Dainty Lion created these beautiful florals!

We love when Brides and Grooms have some non-traditional elements, and Liz’s two-piece dress was just that! It was so beautiful, but it was also fun and we think it fit the Ranch perfectly.

Brad and Liz had the cutest jars of honey at each place setting. The jars added a personal touch to the tables and were fabulous favors that the guests were able to enjoy later on!

Cristina + Andrew – Something Blue at the Ranch

Cristina and Andrew love colors and so do we! From Andrew’s tie to the buildings of the Ranch to the peacocks on the property, Cristina and Andrew played on their blues and greens. Layered Vintage provided the newlyweds with their florals and, oh how bright they are! Their ceremony backdrop stunned with a green and floral garland wrapping the pepper tree. True Photography captured this vibrantly colorful day.
