Rainy Spring Wedding at Holman Ranch

I find rainy day weddings seriously dreamy, and this stunning nuptial is all the proof I need. This couple was literally showered with love on their big day, a lucky omen that proved to be incredibly romantic. Overflowing with beautiful arrangements by Reina, and magical moments captured by Stacey Pentland you can’t help but smile when you see the outpouring of love here.

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.”

Pastel Glamour in Santa Monica

It may be fall, but today we are fully embracing spring thanks to this wedding of lifestyle blogger turned Bride, Whitney of See Shop Eat Do. Her day is a sea of pastel details, a bounty of blooms by Stephanie Grace and all mixed with classic sensibilities. To say this is a stunner is a complete understatement. Catch even more captured by Paige Jones, in the full gallery right here.

From The Bride…Justin and I are both from Canada originally, but we met and got engaged here in Los Angeles, by the beach. We wanted our wedding to be romantic and traditional yet unstuffy, and to reflect what we both love so much about California. Having our reception at Casa Del Mar, an oceanfront hotel rich in Santa Monica history was the perfect fit. Our color scheme of blush pink, white and gold ran through all aspects of the event from our invitations to the bridesmaid dresses to the florals. Our bouquets and arrangements also had plenty of greenery in them which helped to lend a lush, California-casual vibe to the decor. It was really important to us that our guests, many of whom had flown in from other countries, have an amazing time and our band did a great job of getting everyone up and dancing from the second the reception started to the last song of the night.
