From the Bride + Groom... Right away Erin and Shaun knew they wanted a casual, laid back wedding that would bring all of their friends and family together from all around the country. Bandy Canyon Ranch was the perfect venue for their weekend of festivities. Their loved ones were able to stay in the cabins on site and enjoy the pool, lawn games and rustic atmosphere all weekend long. This all meant that Erin + Shaun were able to spend more time with all the people who came to celebrate with them.

The couple had personal details scattered all throughout the wedding. For the décor, Erin and her Mom created tons of DIY details like pennant flags, patterned table overlays, wooden signage and a jaw dropping ceremony backdrop made from strips of fabric. The couple, who are major dog-lovers (they’ve even made a hobby out of taking in rescues!), opted to give donations to their favorite animal shelter in honor of their guests as their ‘favors’. They even had their two beloved pups incorporated into the ceremony processional!

More then anything, Erin and Shaun wanted their wedding to be one heck of a party! And despite record high temps….the wedding was truly that. Guests kicked off their shoes and kept the dance floor packed the whole night, the groom performed a karaoke song for the bride and the bridal party stayed up singing along to piano tunes until the wee hours of the morning.
