Gwen and Cory were married at Dawn Ranch in Guerneville, Calif. on May 15. ”We chose the Dawn Ranch because everyone can stay on the property and hang out and get to know each other,” Gwen said. “The wedding was so amazing because we could transition to different parts of the day by just walking over to a new location. I used a combination of inspiration and didn’t stick to one particular theme, which is how I think it ended up being such a representation of me. But I would say I went for bohemian meets shabby chic.” The bride wore a vintage-inspired wedding gown, accessorized with her hair half-up/half-down in loose curls, while the groom wore a white button-up shirt and gray vest and pants, accessorized with a cap. Bridesmaids wore saint teal dresses with ruffled necklines and carried fabric red rose bouquets. “The day could not have been more perfect!” she said. “The weather was beautiful maybe even a little on the hot side, but we were in a meadow with plenty of apple trees to help cool it down a bit.”  After officially being pronounced husband and wife, the newlyweds rode off on a tandem bicycle! The framed tent reception was decorated with patterned linens, succulent centerpieces, and crystal chandeliers from above — all collected from flea markets. They performed their first dance to “Trust in Me” by Etta James, and the cake was topped with a replica of the two with their handsome rescue pup, Mr. Peanut. See the full board here.
