Dawn Ranch Enchanted Forest Wedding

Romantic Weddings

There are no words to describe my healthy obsession for this wedding shot by none other than Tinywater Photography. It’s not everyday that we see an enchanted forest wedding done so beautifully, to the nines. It’s one of those themes that can go spooky rather than whimsical, and Jess Flood nailed it. The bride’s pooch was part of their day, so it was only fitting that it dressed up for the occasion sporting French cuffs and a bowtie. You must see Abbey and Josh’s photo gallery for up close images!

From Tinywater Photography: Josh and Abbey’s enchanted forest themed wedding took place at the gorgeous Dawn Ranch Lodge in Northern California’s wine country. Dawn Ranch is located just twenty minutes from the Pacific coast, along the Russian River, and nestled in 15 acres of towering redwood trees and lush riverbank.

They went all out on their enchanted forest theme with handfuls of pine cones, ferns, antlers, moss, and tiny twinkling candles laid out across tables among old weathered antique book pages marking each chapter of the day’s festivities. We truly felt like we had been transported into one big gorgeous daydream!

While rain moved in at the start of the day, the wedding party was prepared and embraced it with pink and polka dotted rain boots and bright purple umbrellas.

Festive Rancho del Cielo Wedding

Bohemian Weddings

If you’re in need of a boost of vitamin D on this gloomy afternoon, this wedding designed by the ladies of Bash, Please is just what the doctor ordered. Shot by Love Me Sailor, filmed by Shark Pig with music by The Flashdance and delish food by Heirloom LA, how could you not? Love the burst of color and pops of gingham + chevron. It makes me long for summer days, or maybe I’m just on the wrong coast.

Joel and I always envisioned our wedding outdoors, it’s a must living in Southern California. To our dismay, the week leading up to the wedding was unseasonably cool and gray, a big concern for a sun lover like myself. We got heaters at the last minute for fear that it was going to be in the 60s and overcast. What an amazing joy on the morning of the wedding when I woke up to the most gorgeous sunny day, and it was perfect all the way through. Only my family from Miami could complain that it was a little too chilly for them, but that’s what the heaters were for!

Joel and I are both artists so we decided early on that we wanted lots of color to bring out the vibrancy of our personalities. It was important to include lots of details and personal touches, the little things that make a wedding memorable. (There was no particular theme.) We selected shades of blue, yellow, orange, green, with gray and wood accents. Thanks to our coordinators Paige and Kelly of Bash, Please we were able to add touches of color that brought life to an otherwise bland venue. This also gave it a certain DIY feel, but retained an elegant sophistication that is hard to pull off with lots of color.

Another big factor was the food. We asked ourselves early on if we could ever remember the food we ate at a wedding, (we couldn’t!) and after a spectacular tasting, we decided to hire Heirloom LA. Our guests are still talking about how good the food and the drinks were!

Wedding Songs:
For our ceremony, we hired a gospel choir to perform during our ceremony, they are the talented True Worship Gospel Singers of Rancho Cucamonga. They sang Love and Happiness by Al Green as our recessional. (I can’t remember the processional song, I didn’t really hear it anyway.)

Joel and I danced to Otis Redding’s “That’s how strong my love is”. It was a tearjerker.
