Elegant + Modern California Ranch Wedding

When I see the words “ranch wedding” there’s a certain image that comes to mind. And while we love our rustic weddings dearly, this bride did it on her own terms…without a mason jar or speck of burlap in sight. She opted for modern black and white stripes with pops of gold, and along with the help of Vanessa NoelSweet Memories and Anna Delores embodies what the SMP wedding is all about.

Ranch

From Vanessa Noel Events… Ariana and Taylor’s wedding was one filled with tribute–to their families, their heritages, and to their faith. Ariana’s father, like so many in California’s Central Valley, is a farmer. Ariana grew up on a dairy in the middle of hundreds of acres of almond trees so it only made sense that she and Taylor would get married in her hometown church with a reception on a ranch. But Ariana didn’t want the details that we’ve come to expect from a ranch wedding–no burlap, lace or chippy paint here. Ariana wanted a classic, elegant style that she knew she’d love for years to come.

We put together a palette of black and white, with lots of gold touches and beautiful, lush greenery to bring in the perfect nod to Taylor’s Irish roots and the March wedding date. Crisp black and white stripes brought sophistication to the decor while flowing garlands added soft romance and just the right touch of “country.”

Specialty linens, all-white lounge furniture, and an escort card display of mirrors brought glamor to the rustic venue. The tulips in the centerpieces, the stroopwafel (wafer cookie) favors, and the horse and buggy were all tributes to Ariana’s Dutch heritage. In fact, Ariana’s parents rode on the very same horse and buggy (owned by a local Dutch family) when they were married over 20 years ago!

From Melissa Biador PhotographyThis local colorful and modern geometric inspiration shoot was put together by a handful of San Diego wedding vendors. The creative team wanted to showcase a fun filled, eclectic and modern twist to styling a wedding.

This styled shoot featured a non-traditional bridal gown from the designer Monique Lhuillier and a brightly colored magenta dress from Badgley Mischka both from Rent the Runway. Menswear was provided by A Better Deal Tuxedo, a local San Diego suit/tuxedo shop.

The colors were modern, bold and bright and infused with a mix of colorful centerpieces with Jonathan Adler vases. Many of the custom wooded laser cut items (table numbers, the “hashtag”, heart shaped blocks for table numbers) and custom Malvi cake signs were created and designed by Nic.Roc.Designs. The items featured a fun and modern look to this inspiration shoot.

This faux wedding was photographed at the San Diego New Children’s Museum, which also houses some of the most interesting exhibitions for children and adults alike as well as weddings and other events. The NCM was a perfect setting for this styled shoot!

From AmorologyShortly after Scott Lembke proposed to his darling bride Mia Deterding, their friends quickly coined them “The Lem-dingers” and their new mash up name seemed to be ringing with inspiration. We set out to create a “Lemdinger” of a day for our sweet duo with antiquated bells and rustic romantic touches among a gorgeous country setting.

Mia and Scott were wed under a birch, bloom and bell structure that we created in collaboration with Twigg Botanicals while guests waved ribbon wands of mini bells at the conclusion of their ceremony to celebrate.

Following cocktail hour and lawn games, the dinner bell was wrung and invited guests to wash up at our water basin station and escort card display where each person was given their own tea towel and table assignment. Table names perched in cut birch logs were named after various flowers with the description of their meaning such as Camellia, which in the language of flowers means “longing for you” and the California Poppy which means “Sweet Dreams” or the Lily of the Valley that means “you complete me”.

Guests were favored with homemade strawberry jam by our bride with tied tags that read “the more the berrier”. In exchange, guests left hand-written letters and memories to Mia and Scott that they tucked into old wood mail slots. After dinner, the party took to the dance floor, while some cuddled by the fire in warm handmade quilts by the bride. It was an evening as comfortable and warm as the two of them, filled with the kindest of people and a love that we know will last a lifetime!
