Saddlerock Ranch Wedding by Caroline Tran Photographer
September 29, 2011
United States

I know you are going to think I am lying when I say that this drop dead gorgeous wedding was planned in just THREE WEEKS, but it was, believe it or not! The adorable couple originally intended on eloping to Fiji and just three weeks before the big day, the bride's dad called and said he wanted to walk her down the aisle and NOT in Fiji. And c'mon, how can you say no to your dad? Well the proof is in the stunning images from Caroline Tran Photographer that this wedding not only went off without a hitch, but that it was absolutely spectacular thanks to the planning prowess of Malibu Family Wines. If this wedding teaches you anything, it's to be open to changes during your planning process...oh, and that zebras and camels make for really cute and furry props!

From the Bride...Our original plan was to elope during our honeymoon in Fiji.  Three weeks prior to our departure, I received a phone call from my father saying he wanted to walk me down the aisle and didn’t want us tying the knot in Fiji.  Three weeks to plan a wedding is stressful to say the least.  To top it off, I was in my last year of grad school and Tyler was in his 2nd year of law school.  Add final exams, term papers, job interviews, and my graduation to that planning period, and we were thrown into an immediate state of panic.  Despite the stress we were able to book the venue of our dreams, find an amazing wedding dress, and book our first choice photographer –Caroline Tran.  Thanks to the help of our wonderful friends, family, and wedding coordinator we were able to pull off the most incredible and memorable day of our lives!
