Danielle and Brad were married at Santa Margarita Ranch in Santa Margarita, Calif. on May 31. “We wanted the wedding to be fun and unpretentious,” Danielle said. “We are both fairly casual and low maintenance people, so we didn’t want to go crazy over details, or kill each other.” The bride wore a strapless lace mermaid wedding gown, accessorized with a lavender sash, while the groom wore a gray three-piece suit, accessorized with a solid tie. Bridesmaids wore short sage green chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of hydrangeas, sweet peas, and seeded eucalyptus. “Whenever we go to weddings, we always sit through a long ceremony in the sun and think, ‘I wish I had a cocktail for this; I wish this was shorter.’ When we approached the wedding planning process, we decided to serve drinks beforehand and make the it short and sweet. We wanted to enjoy the time with our family and friends,” she said. Guests were also greeted with a chalkboard sign that said, “Today, two families become one. We ask that you please pick a seat and not a side.” Fun fact: Brad’s dad officiated the ceremony! Escort cards were attached to mason jars — a personalized favor combo. “Since we were having the reception in a barn, we wanted to use rustic elements without making it feel like a hoedown,” Danielle said. Tables were decorated with wooden box centerpieces atop burlap runners, chalkboard numbers, charger plates, and menu cards at each place setting. “I love horses and grew up riding horses competitively,” she said. “At the end of my sister’s speech, she brought out a mini horse named Dazzle that did tricks as our wedding gift. He was so cute, and it was such a surprise.” The newlyweds performed their first dance to Brad Paisley’s “Then,” and cut into a three-tiered buttercream frosted cake afterwards (without smashing it in each other’s faces).

Nikki and Ryan were married on a fall afternoon in October at Santa Margarita Ranch. “The actual wedding day weather could have not been more perfect,” Nikki said. “The sun was shining with only a few clouds in the sky; it was cool with a nice breeze. Getting married under the old oak tree even made it more special.” The bride wore a sweetheart wedding gown and accessorized with a statement necklace and an ivory fabric flower in her braided updo. She even went eco-friendly for her bouquet with cotton, greenery, and white blossoms. Bridesmaids wore different dresses in shades of purple while the groomsmen wore “fingerstaches.”  “Ry and I couldn’t decide who would read their vows first,” she said. “In our game-playing style, we decided to flip a coin in the middle of the ceremony to decide the winner. I won!” While guests enjoyed cocktail hour, the bridal party took the original Disneyland train to take pictures and see the rest of Santa Margarita Ranch’s 13,900 acre property! The reception was held in the barn with hanging mason jar chandeliers, burlap tablecloths, bandanna napkins, and leaves centerpieces, and the dessert bar was filled with strawberry champagne cake, strawberry shortcake, salted caramel cupcakes, mini brownies, lemon bars, and etc. See the full board here.
