Stylish Ranch Wedding

There is so much to love about Thanisha and Ian’s California coast wedding! The unique weathered wood ceremony arch draped with beads, the adorable plush robot cake toppers that match Thanisha’s tattoo and the lush local wildflowers just to name a few. All these details and more were captured by Jen Rodriguez.

From the bride, Thanisha:

It was important to me to have unique elements in our wedding that our guests would not see at other weddings. Instead of having my brother on the grooms side I had him on my side as my “Dude of Honor”. My husbands sister was a groomsgirl. Everything I had hoped,wished, and planned for was achieved. All without any bridezilla moments.

When I was planning the wedding, because lets be honest most of the future grooms are not really into the planning of the wedding,I knew I did not want to have it in a boring location. Living on the Central Coast of California there is a plethora of gorgeous locations. When we were scouting various places I came across the family owned Holland Ranch and it was love at first sight.

Holland Ranch has the option to have the ceremony and reception there making it super convenient. The wedding site is on the grass and has the most amazing backdrop.

When it came to the flowers it was important to me to have in season local wildflowers.

I wanted the wedding to convey a soft, vintage, and romantic feel. I knew that i wanted my centerpieces to represent this and I didn’t want it to formal or fussy. I wanted the centerpieces to have a very natural and organic feel.

Instead of traditional cake toppers I found little wedding robots that were similar to the tattoo on my back.

The barn makes for a great place for the reception. We opted to have everyone sit outside under a canopy of strung lights with the amazing mountain to look out. The barn we used for the bar, food buffet, and the place to shake your booty.

Fun Iowa Wedding

I have a thing for polka dots. They are so cute and playful! Needless to say, when I set my eyes on Jess’s polka dot wedding dress, I was smitten! Even better than a perfect polka dot dress, is a perfect polka dot dress in an adorable ice cream shop! Jess and Brian took a trip to a local ice cream shop before their ceremony. Jess’s parents visited the same exact ice cream shop on their wedding day, so they decided to make a tradition of it!

Here’s a bit more info about Jess and Brian’s big day from their photographer, Gina Zeidler.

This little Iowa wedding was a dream to be a part of. Jess and Brian wanted to start their day with a quick first look and pop into the car (an amazing car they bought specifically for their get away ride) to visit the very meaningful ice cream shop a town away. Yes I repeat. It was my brides idea to go to this too cute for words ice cream shop , take photos and most importantly eat some ice cream (seriously when she sent me the link to this place I couldn’t believe my eyes, this is why I love my brides). The story behind the ice cream shop is that Jess’s parents were also there on their wedding day. I am all for keeping tradition so we pulled up, shared a banana spilit and snapped away.

After our ice cream trip, we returned to battle cold, wind, rain, and super bright sun throughout the rest of the day. The outdoor ceremonywent off with out a hitch and we headed to the reception in the upstairs of this awesome restaurant bar named P.M. Park.

I would have to say one of my favorite parts of the day was watching Jess and her dad interact. Not only do they share the same smile and laugh, they share the same amazing attitude and spunk towards life. It was truly a blessing to be part of this amazing wedding day.
