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.”

From the beautiful Bride… The day was perfect in my eyes. I married the man of my dreams, my best friend and partner of 9 years in the most picturesque setting at breathtaking Holman Ranch which is nestled in the rolling hills of Carmel Valley. We were surrounded by our dearest family and friends during our much anticipated wedding day. I could not wait to be in the moment, at my wedding to see my husband and for the many details of our wedding to come together at last. Many of our friends and family members contributed to making the day unique and special. My Uncle Alan was one of these individuals who became ordained for the occasion and married us. The ceremony was beautiful, personal, light hearted and a mix of two cultures coming together as one (Jewish and Japanese). The chuppah we were married under was constructed by my parents-in-law Glenn and Donna. It was stunning and created the perfect canopy for us to begin our married life under.

The veil I wore, along with the flower girl basket and ring bearer pillow were made by my mother-in-law Kathy. Carl’s sister created a gorgeous picture out of 1,000 paper cranes of two coy fish in a pond as a wedding gift for us. My mother collected jars and mirror glass sprayed all of the center pieces, and made 100 succulent garden name tags as take home gifts out of baby food jars. We corked signs and letters from 10 inch tall letters I bought from a MardiGras website for less than $3 each! Friends and family baked an array of desserts for our home baked goods bar. We had sake instead of champagne! My college girlfriends all wore blue dresses to be my something blue. A few of our friends brought their GoPros in place of a videographer since it was not in the budget and captured the most special moments of the day. My husband designed all of the paper products himself, from the save the dates, to the invitations, to the ketubah. He is truly talented! My twin brother custom designed and hand painted my wedding shoes. As we know it, our fathers played a tremendous roll and payed for gas while we navigated the way. It truly was a group effort. The day following our Friday wedding we went wine tasting with 30-40 people and then my in-laws hosted a BBQ for 100 people. It was the event of a lifetime.

The most special moments to me were seeing my groom for the first time during our first look and holding his hands, starring into his eyes during our ceremony as we made promises for a lifetime with our personal vows. I was the happiest as is physically possible, so consumed with love and emotions. It was incredible. We attended 9 weddings in 12 months last year and were able to gather a lot of inspiration for our day. We knew what made past weddings memorable to us, and a few of the most important things were to have a few consecutive days of events to prolong the time with our guests, a stunning venue, phenomenal food, a talented photographer that would capture our special day for eternity, a good DJ to keep the party flowing and most importantly a ceremony that was personal and reflected our personalities, our relationship and our values. It was perfect.

From the beautiful Bride… Our wedding was almost entirely handmade, we had our families help out with creating many of the creative touches for the wedding. We wanted our wedding to reflect our personalities and create a truly memorable day for our guests. We began with a beautiful outdoor location for the ceremony at the Holman Ranch in Carmel Valley, CA and had our reception in the Ocean Avenue Room at the IL Fornaio Restaurant. Our venues set the mood for the wedding and we simply filled it with beautiful handmade accents.

My wedding dress was my own design and was handmade by a family friend. I also carved out the anchor stamp for the favor bags that were made by my mom with help from other family members. My favorite project for the wedding was creating the flower bouquets and the centerpieces, my dad made the flower boxes and then the rest of the family helped out making the flower arrangements. Aside from that, my brother made the cake signs and the chair signs, I painted the seating sign, and my parents helped collect decorative items to display at our reception.

From The Bride…Our venues were our inspiration. Carmel Valley Ranch and the Mission Bascilica have such a romantic and classy feel and Carmel is so beautiful in the fall. The Indian Summer in November set the perfect scene. Our vendors really turned our vision into a reality and we couldn’t have been happier with how everything turned out.

The anticipation of the first look with my future husband was one of the highlights of my day. We had picked out a bridge on the Ranch with a view of the valley to see each other for the first time. Walking towards him on the bridge and later down the aisle of the Carmel Mission, I remember thinking, “This is perfect.”
