Glitter and Gold Wedding at Holman Ranch

Today, I’m packing up my e-suitcase and heading west. And this sparkling fete? It’s the perfect sunny destination. With rustic glam accents, this Holman Ranch affair is filled with glitter and gold in the form of Sweet Lauren Cakes and colorful Asiel Design blooms. From personal vows, to the altar crafted from strips of the Bride’s grandmother’s wedding dress, every detail snapped up by This Love Of Yours is what wedding dreams are made of, more here!

From the beautiful Bride… Our vision for our wedding was “Rustic Glam”. Holman Ranch took care of the rustic part, so I wanted to incorporate lots of glitter and gold to glam it up. You can never have enough of either in my opinion!

Our vows were the most memorable part of our entire day, they were so personal and just so us! The altar was created with strips of my grandmother’s wedding dress. Getting married under the custom made alter was really special, it was a beautiful way to incorporate her.

We loved Holman Ranch because it is so versatile. It’s a beautiful canvas for any style or design. The grand oak “Tree”! I remember a special moment very vividly. Matt and I were by ourselves for the first time all day, taking photos with our photographers out in the green fields by the tree and it was so perfect! It was the most relaxed I felt all day- simply being surrounded by nature all glammed up with my new husband.

If I had one piece of advice for planning, it would be to make it about you and your husband! Make sure you really connect with your vendors and create the dream team, they make the day!
Enjoy the process and the day since it goes by fast!

Rustic Elegance at Holman Ranch

This wedding is stunning. It’s the kind of wedding that will stick with you for hours, if not days – all the beautiful rustic, yet elegant details dancing in your head until you’ve pinned every beautiful image from Carlie Statsky in this gallery. It’s easy to get lost in the stunning florals from Fionna Floral or the one-of-a-kind setting of the Holman Ranch, but then when you dig a little deeper and get into the soul and story of this wedding, you realize it’s so much more beautiful than you could have every imagined.

From The Bride…Our relationship is unique and in some ways unbelievable. We have had the pleasure of being in each other’s lives since the age of five as we went to kindergarten through eighth grade together. We also have had some similar misfortunes that have given us an understanding for each other that other couples may not have. Our sisters were both in traumatic accidents that have left them paralyzed. While they are the toughest people we know, having an understanding of what each other’s families have gone through gives us all a bond that many families don’t have. It does not define any of our lives but it has created a kinship amongst the two families and is one of the many reasons why the Moriarty and the Cimino families can seamlessly come together as one. Even our sisters think of each other as sisters, which they get very disappointed when you tell them that is not exactly how it works. However, if we mention them we must mention the amazing support that our parents have given all of their children. From our sweet selfless mothers that are quietly handling all behind the scenes to our unwavering fathers who’s poignant words are always said at just the right time. These people especially have made “Mike and Renee” an easy thing.

A good man has always told us “classy never goes out of style” this was continuously on our minds as we envisioned our picturesque ceremony, and created the romantically elegant reception, which turned into an all out love fest. The vision was ever evolving throughout the planning process, but the overall theme was to put Holman Ranch center stage with subtle or maybe not so subtle touches of extravagance to set the day apart. We included special sentimental touches like having the vintage car Renee’s parents drove away in at their wedding in the background, fabric hearts sewn on blankets for the guests made from our grade school uniform pattern, and Mike’s ring being made to match his dad’s ring. We always kept our guests in mind and did our best to make sure there was something for everyone. Our goal was always to have everyone leave with a full belly and a huge smile on their face. A big thanks to all of our vendors and Amy Byrd’s team for making our vision come to fruition!

From The Bride…Ashley and KC’s big day had been nine years in the making. They met the first day of new student orientation in undergrad and their backgrounds could not have been more diverse. KC was a well-traveled, international tennis player and Ashley was a small town, country girl with an upbringing in rodeo. But, 2 people, 9 years later, picked March 2-9 as the perfect date to tie the knot.

Holman Ranch, one valley over from Ashley’s family ranch, was the perfect combination of rustic, ranching roots and timeless, classic style to complement the bride and groom’s divergent backgrounds and unique tastes. And, their love for the outdoors made Holman’s breathtaking views the obvious choice.

To lessen the chances of rain, the couple picked a date in late spring. With California experiencing an unprecedented drought, the odds were in their favor. Go figure, the selected date turned out to be the only Saturday rain day of the year, with record rainfall.

Disappointed at first, the couple soon realized they could not have asked for a more romantic, mystical day, showered with true love and heavenly tears of joy. The heavy rainfall above the tents during the couple’s vows was refreshing and cleansing. Being drenched in pure bliss and soaked in endless happiness, the weather forecast was nothing short of a miracle!

The old superstition that rain on your wedding day is a lucky omen surely flooded true. As one friend analogized, “Tying a wet knot will hold tighter than any other.”
