Al Fresco Saddlerock Ranch Wedding

A touch of whimsy here and a dash of vineyard romance there, this soiree from Koman Photography is packed with more details than I can count on my digits. The al fresco reception space alone is oh-me-oh-my and just how cute are these two?! Plus, there’s a zebra. It doesn’t get any better than that. There’s more right this way in THE VAULT.

From The Bride…David and I met back in high school when we both worked at a local sub shop, Jersey Mike’s. We immediately had a connection and I always knew in the back of my mind that one day we would spend the rest of our lives together. David proposed on the beach at sunset, where we had one of our first dates. He planned a romantic picnic on the beach and even asked my best friends to secretly capture photos of it all and then surprise me afterwards. It was one of the happiest moments of my life that I will never forget!

We immediately knew the Garden setting at Saddlerock Ranch was the perfect place to get married, among rolling hills, vineyards, white picket fences, ancient oak trees, horses, exotic animals and magical hanging lights in the trees. We wanted to celebrate our special day alongside our closest friends and family in an environment that portrayed our own personal styles and interests. We also wanted it to feel like a backyard wedding, where our guests could feel comfortable playing lawn games and making s’mores, while enjoying the spectacular scenery. Since the location already has so many rustic elements, we wanted a crystal chandelier above the dance floor to add romance and elegance. We also picked out vintage furniture to add some decorative flair and character.

We loved every aspect of the planning process and in particular, taking on so many DIY projects, from making our own place cards and centerpiece boxes to the lawn games and signs. I have a passion for crafting and painting, so we added personalized touches everywhere we could. We asked David’s dad to officiate our marriage and it was very special having him by our side as we read our own vows to each other. Our parents and siblings surprised us with the most entertaining, creative and genuine toasts, that all had a musical theme. The entire day felt like a dream come true!

We are so grateful for our amazing and talented team of vendors who exceeded our expectations and made our vision come to life! Our planner, Laurel Szeto, facilitated every aspect of the planning process and flawlessly executed our entire day due to her vast experience and knowledge. We also want to express our sincerest gratitude to our talented and creative photographers, John and Marlene of Koman Photography, and our videographers, Mason and Savannah Summers (Anchor Pictures) for being such a joy to work with, capturing our wedding day better than we could have ever imagined and allowing us to relive one of the best days of our lives!

From The Bride…Peter and I both come from Europe, but we met here in Los Angeles at USC School of Cinematic Arts. We decided to celebrate our wedding in California with our school friends. As we were busy producing a movie in the months leading up to the big day we hired Erica Espana of Twine Events to plan and design our wedding. She went off with our starting color palette of pinks and mint with a rustic touch to match the venue. Then she wanted to add a fun element to the mix — that’s when she thought of travel since both of us are big travelers. To make it personal, she included a monogram of our names to make it personal. We were going for an airy romantic garden wedding and we think with Erica’s help it worked out perfectly.

From Twine EventsWorking with Elena and Peter were a dream. Their attitude and playfulness with each other made the process so fun and special. It’s always so refreshing to see a couple so in love and trusting of each other. With a lot of town family and living in Los Angeles they wanted a venue that captured the essence of California. Saddlerock Ranch with its vineyards and 360 views provided a dreamy landscape to wow their guests. And with keeping the guest count under 60, they were able to make the wedding feel very intimate and cozy. It was important to Elena and Peter to show how much they appreciated and loved their family and friends. Being big travelers their invitation, created by a friend, were curated as a passport and their favorite places around the world were incorporated as the table names. It was fun to make the details a great conversation starter wherever we could that we even decided on a family style dinner. It was a beautiful California night and Saddlerock is a venue where it gets even more beautiful at night. So much love in the air.

From Hylah White Special EventsRoss and Danielle’s wedding was an elegance affaire with a garden setting and an Ocean view. The couple refers to their wedding day as perfect harmony from start to finish. Ross and Danielle’s wedding was an intimate celebration filled with great food, good entertainment, and an ambiance that can only be described as a magical.

Danielle grew up in Malibu and would often visit the Adamson House, dreaming of the day she would step foot on the property as a bride! Ross, being from Philadelphia knew that his family and friends would love the uniqueness of this one of kind venue.

The bride wore a custom made hand-embroidered lace gown that was adorned with delicate flowers and Swarovski crystals by R-Mine in Studio City. The stunning bridal bouquet featured an assortment of ranunculus and garden roses with a pop of pale pink accenting the ‘something blue’ flowing ribbon. The bridesmaids’ floor-length Jenny Yoo dresses were an exquisite backdrop for their peachy pink loose bouquets with draping ribbon. A dear friend and member of the Adamson Family officiated their wedding, which was a non-denominational ceremony with Jewish elements to pay tribute to Ross’s heritage.

During cocktail hour an assortment of carefully chosen hors d’oeuvres were tray passed including mini Philly cheesesteaks. The style and decor of this wedding mirrored the historical details this venue encompasses. The escort card table was creatively accented with replica tiles to match the iconic Adamson House.

The reception featured floor length champagne linens and each place setting included gold flatware with a gold calligrapher personalized menu. The gorgeous lush centerpiece over flowed with large peach and ivory blooms and cascading greens while surrounded by a variety of antique mercury glass votives.

A vignette of vintage furniture added to this romantic atmosphere of hanging bistro lights and a crystal chandelier. Danielle and Ross had cookies that resemble the Adamson House historical tiles as their guest gift by Modern Bite. Their wedding day was a reflection of everything they love in life coming together.
