Today’s wedding, put together by the talent of All Traditions and Fluid Bloom is everything a ranch wedding should be – full of relaxation, love, and fun, with the added bonus of bright pops of color! Thanks to David Pascolla Photography for sharing this beauty with us.
From the bride, Carolyn: Our ceremony was outdoors, and the reception was in the barn all at Santa Margarita Ranch. We wanted a relaxed, casual atmosphere, and most importantly, for everyone to have fun. We were going for a rustic chic theme, but with lots of color! We had corals, yellows, greens, pinks, lavender, and orange all involved.
Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Have fun, and don’t sweat the small stuff. Also, don’t be afraid to ask for help! Our wedding party jumped at the chance to help anywhere they could, and both of our mom’s were super supportive. Each mom was able to put their special touch into the decorations-my mom sewed pillow covers for our hay bale couches, and my mother-in-law made sure everyone stayed cool in the hot weather by provided parasols and battery powered fans.
