Rustic + Chic Durham Ranch Wedding

It’s not an easy feat to be both modern and rustic at the same time, but when it’s done right, the result is one of the chicest barn weddings I’ve ever laid eyes on. The wedding, captured by Kim and Niki, Photographers, took the already beautiful Durham Ranch and with the help of Bridal Bliss and Soulflower Floral Design, turned it into an absolute dream.

Rustic

From Kim and Niki… We are so excited to present this sweet and stylish wedding. Beautiful and sublime floral with green succulents offset with crisp white floral.

A modern chic but still rustic feel with a huge barn setting. Durham Ranch has an amazing barn. White and clean with just a few rustic touches gave this wedding a unique feel. Mixing clean and crisp modern lines with hay bales. Love it! Please check out the oversized iron hanging lights. I’ve never seen anything like it!

The bride had a hand in perfecting all the details, right down to insisting that the rustic chairs were one of the most important elements. (A small debate broke out between the bride and her father about comfort vs. style.. Style won out.)

We adore this wedding. A mastery of both hard and soft, rustic and chic. One of our favorite weddings of the year!

John and Whitney are a charmed couple. Sweetly in love and happy beyond words. From the first look to the last dance we were thrilled to be a part of this one of a kind wedding.

Classic Black Tie Durham Ranch Wedding

Ooh, Annie McElwain, you did us all a favor when you sent over this beautiful wedding. It’s the kind of day that can turn even the worst mornings right around. It’s the kind of day that sticks around in your daydreams for weeks. Is the kind of day (thanks to Paula Le Duc) that has your stomach rumbling while your eyes are twinkling. It’s my favorite kind of day, and lucky for you, it’s all right here.

Ranch

From the beautiful bride… John & I searched all over California wine country for the perfect wedding venue. We were living in San Francisco, and given the summer weather can be somewhat unpredictable, we knew we’d need to get outside of the city for sunshine! John was actually the one who found Durham Ranch, and we fell in love with it the moment we saw it.

Over the next few months we worked with our incredible planner and designer, Meg, to think through all the little details that made the day special. We had family coming in from across the country, so wanted to be sure we made their trip worthwhile. I wore the same earrings my sister-in-law wore at her wedding to my rehearsal dinner, and I wore earrings my husband gave me for our first Christmas together at our wedding. On the day of the wedding, my mom gave me dried flowers from her bouquet. My sister-in-law gave my sister, my mom, and me special wedding day handkerchiefs, which I wrapped around my bouquet.

My dad’s speech had the room in tears, especially when he talked about my mom – “the love of his life.” My sister’s maid-of-honor speech and John’s brothers’ best man speeches were both sweet and hilarious, and we can’t wait to re-watch them. John focused on the band, and did a fantastic job. David Martin’s house party blew us away, and we both spent most of the night on the dance floor. We both made it up on stage for portions of the evening, along with John’s grandmother!

A highlight of the evening was stealing away with our amazing photographer, Annie, to capture some shots at the entrance to the ranch. The sun was setting, and as we walked hand-in-hand up the driveway of the ranch together, I was so thankful we took those few minutes together, and that we had Annie to capture them on film!

Farm

From Matt Edge Wedding PhotographyThe inspiration for Brenna and Dave’s farm-to-table wedding was a single interior design image. She wanted the look to be clean and modern with a touch of elegance. Its different than the typical wine country wedding – the color palette was charcoal gray, cream, and white with accents of magnolia leaves and silver. The couple fell in love with the idea of a destination wedding since all of their families live so far apart (Dave is from Canada and Brenna from Ohio). They chose Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch for the amazing food and drinks, with the added bonus of amazing views and outdoor lawn and gardens. The evening felt very intimate with long farm tables and food served family style. The night ended with family and friends eating, drinking, smiling and laughing by candlelight under the California wine country night sky!
