Beautiful Flowers and A Beautiful Wedding Day at Ranch Valencia Remembered

We love a grand vision for a wedding and we also love when the bride and her artist designer and decor specialists like the amazing Annette Gomez, florist extraordinaire] feel they don't have to make everything match-matchy! This glorious Rancho Valencia wedding feels like a playful circus for the heart and soul!! And we really really love when a bunch of our favorite wedding pros [like Boyd Harris Photography, planner EverAfter Events, our rental heroes Classic Party Rentals, and the lovely Farm Tables and More,] come together to play and make wedding decor magic!

San Diego Featured Wedding: Kirstin + Colin's Country Girl Flair Wedding Inspires

Kirstin and Colin Hodges just had the wedding of Kirstin's dreams. We are sort of making a funny joke, but as Kirstin said, "to sum it up it was a little bit of country, a little bit of country club, but with a whole lot of a princess’ dream." And that's exactly what she wanted. Ever since she was a little girl, Kirstin says that she has always dreamed of a princess-style wedding with some "country girl flair." From pink, sparkly wedding pumps to cowgirl boots for the reception, it sounds like Kirstin got everything she's been dreaming about.

Fairbanks Ranch Wedding Proves Rain Really Is Good Luck on Your Wedding Day!

These gorgeous photos of Nicole and Ryan's wedding looks like a picture perfect sunny San Diego celebration of love... but this affable couple actually showed they have what it takes to navigate life's surprises with a few exciting twists and turns on the big day! 

This lovely peach and mint green wedding at Fairbanks Ranch Country Club was supposed to be an outdoor ceremony overlooking the waterfront, but some unexpected rain [in San Diego, California!!?] brought the celebration inside to the reception area. 

Although the wedding party and the bride had to work around a few dinner tables, there was nothing but smiles and love and lots of "but rain is good luck on a wedding day!"  Fortunately Nicole and Ryan also had selected a rock star coordinator in Carmel Hemsley. Carmel did the flowers herself and arranged all the catering, bar and DJ. And you know what... it turns out rain is good luck on your wedding day!
