The best thing about my job, aside from the fact that I am literally surrounded by pretty weddings day after day, is that I get to share those weddings with YOU. And in sharing sweet soirees like this rustic eclectic affair sent our way by April Flowers, I know I am putting a smile on so many faces. So, SO many faces. Of course, Barbara Alessandra Photography is helping spread this grin sensation, especially once I tell you she's filled a gallery full of more from this wedding!
From Alana of Love Me Simple ... I was super excited to work with Lori and Noah, especially when Lori came to me with her color scheme and an overall vision for her wedding day. It was super fun working with reds, yellows, and grays to create a gorgeous fall celebration for these two lovebirds.

Santa Margarita Ranch was the perfect venue for the rustic wedding Lori was dreaming of, and the dream was easily executed with an amazing team of vendors.  Lori and Noah have friends all over the country, so this event was truly a destination wedding for many of their guests who traveled to be a part of their day. Noah's groomsmen were his college buddies who have since spread out across CA and beyond - and they all met in San Francisco to road trip down to the wedding together in a giant RV. As soon as they rolled up to the venue for the rehearsal, I knew it was going to be a party.

Sure enough, the wedding was definitely a joy filled party honoring the love of Lori and Noah. Porterhouse Bob kept everyone dancing into the night, and guests were sent off with warm donut holes and milk from Trumpet Vine Catering.
