Amanda and Josh were married at Rancho Buena Vista Adobe in Vista, Calif. on March 28. “From the moment we walked through the gates, we had a great feeling about it,” Amanda said. “It had the ambiance we were looking for and we knew we wouldn’t have to do much more to create a gorgeous setting.” The bride wore a strapless fitted lace gown with casual wavy hair. She carried a pink and white bouquet made of peonies, roses, ranunculeses, hyacinthes, tulips, and freesias. Her ‘maids donned short muted pink dresses with white embroidery on the bodice. They carried bouquets of ranunculuses, roses, sweet peas, among other pretty blooms. Her groom and his men opted for tan dress pants and vests, and went without a tie for a more casual look. The two littlest attendants carried a burlap banner that read “Here comes the bride” before Amanda’s dad escorted her down the aisle to wed Josh in front of 175 friends and family members. The reception followed with a taco dinner and an iced bundt cake for dessert. Each table featured a DIY floral mason jar centerpiece with burlap and lace decor on top of a wooden slab. Amanda and Josh’s main priority was that everyone had a fabulous time. “I didn’t want to be stressing about everything being a particular color or wedding favors or fancy place settings,” Amanda noted. “What mattered is that everyone was able to get an invite, that we had good music, everyone was fed, and everyone was comfortable.” How sweet!

Domonique and Aaron were married at V6 Ranch in Parkfield, Calif. last summer. “The location where we were married was close to our hearts for a few reasons,” Domonique said. “We had family and friends in both Northern and Southern California, and this was an area both could drive to. We wanted a place where people could escape from their daily lives and enjoy the moment.” The bride wore a v-neck fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with a black floral sash and birdcage veil, while the groom wore a seersucker jacket, black pants, and a navy blue tie. “Our approach was very do it yourself,” she said. “We were fortunate to have talented friends and family who pitched in and made the wedding beautiful.”The maid of honor designed all of the bouquets and boutonnieres, which included air plants, dusty millers, anemones, ranunculuses, and feathers. Guests sat on bales of of hay to watch the outdoor ceremony. How unique are their wedding bands? As the reception followed, so did the toast. Everyone recited, “The taste of love is sweet when hearts like ours meet.” with mason jars and customized horseshoe shot glasses. Dinner was served family-style at long tables in a U-shaped configuration with pews draped in cowhide, pies were dessert, and the first dance was performed to “That’s How Strong Our Love Is” by Otis Redding.
