Oh dear California ranch wedding, let me count the ways in which I love you. I love the flowers, with the just-picked-from-the-field feel, courtesy of The Green Vase. I love the custom drink, brewed by the groom for his bride with adoration and love. I love the stunning locale – Thacher Winery – with it’s big, beautiful barn, and the gorgeous hilly backdrop. I love the gorgeous bride and the handsome devil of a groom. I love every little detail that Touch of Style Events pulled together so perfectly, and that Mike Larson captured so brilliantly. I love that there is a gallery chock-full of more photos from this fabulous day.

I fell in love with Thacher Winery a couple of years before falling in love with Matt.  I thought to myself, when visiting for some wine tasting, that I wanted to get married there if I ever found the right person.  And when I met Matt, he mentioned that he knew the Thacher’s.  I couldn’t believe it!

I was never one to dream of my wedding day but I found myself thinking about it and decided to pull out some pictures from magazines of things that inspired me hoping it too would help focus my energy on making it happen one day. When that “one day” eventually happened, I went back to the folder of ideas and pulled out  a picture from Martha Stewart Weddings magazine.  I realized that the bride in the picture had the exact same wedding dress on that I had just purchased and the wedding was in a barn!  Crazy how dreams come true.

We wanted it to be an amazing celebration: good music, good food, good beer and good wine with our most favorite people!   No fuss, just a great party.  We were so fortunate to work with some of the best vendors you can get, most of whom were or have become great friends.
