It is no secret that we really, really love Saddlerock Ranch around here. Every wedding that takes place against those Malibu mountains is full of magic and wonder. This love-filled affair from another favorite of ours, Erin Hearts Court, is full to the brim with whimsy, perfectly understated, organic details and a handful of the best vendors on the west coast. Don’t stop til you get enough in the full gallery!
From Cassandra… Andrea + Phinny… that is probably the only way to start to explain the connection of a pair truly in love, silently romantic, outrageously funny and soon-to-be parents, our bride and groom. These two clever people met on the stage at their theater company and both hit the mark in compatibility. Phinny’s quiet nature allowed for Andrea’s fun filled heart to shine on their wedding day in Malibu, California at Saddle Rock Ranch. While honoring Andrea’s jewish heritage with a beautiful handmade chuppah, the wood arbor provided for a ceremony full of laughter. Many friends participated with musical jingles, full chorus line productions and tibetan sound bowls. Family was certainly a highlight of the day as was a playful school theme (both Andrea & Phinny are teachers) seen throughout with chalkboard signage, wood cut table numbers and an invitation suite that recalled “The Giving Tree” by Shell Silverstein, a classic kids book (created by Hello Lucky!). Their catering selection was of the utmost importance and standard “wedding fare” would not stand a chance on these foodies pallets. Heirloom Catering created a beautiful family style meal that fit the bill along with custom cocktails that were fresh pressed earlier that day. Michael Antonia of Flashdance had the barefoot party swaying along to a mix of oldies and hip-sets that kept this Sunday wedding going well into the night.
