By now you are knee deep in our day of gorgeous from Jessica Burke and Jacin of Lovely Little Details, and if you can believe it, it’s about to get even prettier. I know, it doesn’t seem possible, but it will only take one look at this stunning Long Meadow Ranch wedding to understand why we are surrendering ourselves to their talents today. “Dream team” doesn’t even do these two ladies justice, because from the look of this wedding, they make magic happen. See every gorgeous moment here.
From the Bride…We knew quickly after we got engaged how to describe our ideal wedding/style: rustically elegant yet romantic and approachable. While most people would tilt their head in confusion at this combination of words we so loved, Jacin Fitzgerald of Lovely Little Details knew EXACTLY what we meant. It was also important for us to have our ceremony outdoors, within close proximity to our reception, and in a setting which our guests would enjoy a weekend getaway. We explored venues from Northern California to Austin, Texas in search of the perfect place and, again, Jacin came to the rescue. Her recommendation of Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch in St. Helena, California was the perfect fit to accommodate both our style and dream location in the heart of wine country.
Our wedding details included a beautiful garland framing a bouquet topped wine barrel alter, a Jessica Burke photo session at Long Meadow Ranch’s nearby vineyard/barn property, his & hers craft cocktails, a mouthwatering spread of family style dishes, a warm glow from a combination of string lighting and campfires, an antique chandelier lit cigar bar, an old fashioned popcorn bar complete with custom Farmstead seasonings, and even a gluten free wedding cake baked by the amazing chefs at Farmstead (celiac bride!!).
Our perfect day would not have been possible if not for our amazing families, fun-loving friends, and the incredible group vendors we were fortunate enough to work with. Several of them, including Jacin Fitzgerald, Jessica Burke, Elizabeth Harris and Michael Antonia, had worked together before and their collaboration and flawless execution resulted in a day that exceeded our every expectation.
