Rustic Romance at Leo Carillo Ranch

I usually have a favorite element from each wedding that I curate and write. A little slice of “I should have done that!”. This beauté from Caroline Tran? It’s bursting at the seams with ’em. But this lettered cake plate, well, it takes the cake. If I were a guest, I’d grab a little piece for myself and cozy up in this sweet space courtesy of Archive Rentals. Hop over to THE VAULT to find your own pin-able faves.

From Caroline TranDarci and Scott both fell in love with the gorgeous ranch estate at Leo Carrillo Ranch, with its sweeping views, wild peacocks, and a romantic ceremony tree. The blooming bougainvillea and sweeping eucalyptus trees made a perfect backdrop for the lush florals of the wedding amidst the rustic homey touches of the ranch. The ceremony was held underneath a stately willow tree in the midst of stone courtyard with a number of close family and friends with a touching communion that celebrated the legacy of Darci’s late grandparents. “We were sure to save a spot for them at the ceremony. They were married for fifty-two years so we knew they knew something about love and wanted them there every step of the way. Love is something to be cherished and we are doing our very best to follow their example,” Darci said.

Darci and Scott’s close family and friends celebrated their special day with an open garden outdoor reception. With no planned seating, the idea was for guests to mingle and dance the entire night. The charming garden atmosphere was complete with hanging lights, a spinning windmill, and a lovely dessert arrangement with various sweets and donuts.

From using the same giblets at the communion ceremony to a touching toast to the accents to Darci’s wedding attire including her grandmother’s necklace, and a fabric heart sewn into the inside of her wedding gown; the theme of family was ever present.

Romantic Carlsbad Beach Elopement + Honeymoon Inspiration

I’ve never claimed to be a beach babe but by golly, this shoot by Mirelle Carmichael has me rethinking some life goals. The romance of the boho elopement is ridiculously pretty on its own but toss in the surfer inspired honeymoon pics and I’m smitten (and that classic, chic striped bathing suit? I’m ordering it ASAP). Summer isn’t over yet so until that first leaf falls, this gallery will be my daydream destination.

From I Do…Weddings!…This venue has such a rustic charm in the architecture and landscaping. With such lush greenery surrounding the property, weathered barns scattered throughout, antique windmills, peacocks roaming around, and the warmth of the sunshine, you just can’t help but smile.

From the Mother of the Bride…My daughter’s dream was to have a ‘shabby-chic,’ vintage wedding with lots of crafty and personalized touches.” With so much love and thoughtfulness, Jamie’s family put together many decorative DIY projects. Each detail was well thought out and truly expressive of them and their love story. From the lit-up “J” initials, vintage plates used for guest seating and table numbers, lawn games, and wood signs, their décor was the perfect setup for their wedding day!

Jamie Jeremiah’s wedding ceremony was held under this giant pepper tree. Mason jars were delicately hung from the trees and chairs filled with an array of gorgeous blooms and accented with lace.

Guests were then invited to enjoy cocktail hour, where they enjoyed playing personalized lawn games and taking fun pictures within a vintage photobooth.

Guests then took their seats at the rustic feast wood tables, which were accented with Jute Wheat table runners, and beautiful blush pinks, soft peach, ivory, and soft green floral arrangements. This definitely set the tone for a beautiful shabby-chic and pastel color palette wedding!

The Bride looked stunning as ever in her white dress, and her beautiful bridesmaids dressed in long dresses all mixed and matched with an assortment of pinks, charcoal and light grey. I absolutely LOVE the Bride’s and bridesmaids bouquets created with vibrant garden roses, roses, spray roses, lisianthus, succulents, and wrapped with burlap and ivory lace. Groom and Groomsmen were looking sharp in their grey suits accented with a black tie and a gorgeous succulent boutonniere.

Jamie and Jeremiah’s wedding day was magical; especially with their nearest and dearest family and friends there to celebrate and dance the night away under the stars.
