Jacquelyn and Sean were married at Hummingbird Nest Ranch in Simi Valley, Calif. on October 19. “We knew it was the one because of it’s effortless, natural beauty,” Jacquelyn said. “It felt like we were at an Italian villa.” The bride wore a lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown with an illusion neckline and back, accessorized with a pair of sparkly peep-toe pumps, while the groom wore a gray three-piece suit, accessorized with a peach bow tie and pocket square to match the ‘maids in their dresses. She walked down the rose-petal aisle with her parents by each side to meet Sean. They recited their own vows that got them both teary-eyed! Guests enjoyed signature “Whisk-ie Love” and “Yu Sweet Cute-Cumber” cocktails from mason jars. Rustic farm tables were decorated with vintage books, vases and vessels filled with roses and hydrangeas and coffee bean favor bags at each place setting. “The one moment I can’t stop thinking about is when all our friends and family flooded onto the dance floor to surround us for the last song,” she said. “There was big bear hugs, high-fives, and cheers while everyone sang along to Journey’s ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ at the top of our lungs.”

Lauren and Guy were married at Don Strange Ranch in Boerne, Texas on April 13. “It was the perfect outdoor, casual but beautiful hill country setting with live longhorns!” Lauren said. “It had a Plan B (in case it rained) that I liked just as well as Plan A, and it provided a really nice flow from ceremony to cocktail hour to reception, which was important to us.” The bride walked down the aisle wearing a lace fit ‘n’flare wedding gown with a v-neckline and back, accessorized with a sash. They both wrote their own vows! “We wanted our vows to reflect what we truly wanted to promise to each other,” she said. Even the family Springer Spaniel, Audi made an appearance. Following cocktail hour with signature prickly pear margaritas, guests were escorted into the barn where they sat at tables decorated with ivory linens and green napkins. Each table had a different wildflower centerpieces surrounded by votive candles. The dessert display featured a unique mason jar chandelier hanging overtop the cake with jelly bean favors to the left and right. The bride’s favorite moment? Running through the glow stick send-off at the end of the night.

Kelli and Derek were married at Cava Event’s Rancho Rubalcava in San Jose, California on May 18. This 12-acre venue has amazing views of Silicon Valley. How’s the for a dramatic backdrop? The offbeat couple opted for a carnival-theme with lots of whimsical do-it-yourself details. The bride walked down the aisle wearing a strapless beaded lace wedding gown with pleated tulle tiers and a pair of “something blue” peep-toe pumps (only to change into sneakers shortly after), accessorized with her hair down in loose curls and a luscious bouquet of peonies. Inside the reception, umbrellas hung from the ceiling while guests enjoyed comfort foods like baby back ribs, bbq chicken, potato salad, and garlic bread. Yum! And let’s not forget about the popcorn and cotton candy too.

Tessa and Andrew were married at Holman Ranch in Carmel Valley, California on October 19. “We wanted a venue that could stand by itself as a simple setting supported by natural details, such as the view, the vineyards, and lush vegetation.,” said Tessa. “Holman Ranch does just that. The minute we saw what our ‘backdrop’ would be during the ceremony, we knew that it was the one.” No floral decorations were needed! The bride walked down the aisle wearing a Romona Keveza wedding gown to her groom in a classic black tuxedo and bow tie. The reception followed with their favorite foods from The Meatball Shop in New York. “Our caterers were able to get every detail from the meatball sandwiches to the ice cream sandwich station,” she said. “It was absolutely surreal to look around during dinner and see all of our closest friends and family sharing laughs, food, and great company.”

Brandy and Brock were married at the Historic Santa Margarita Ranch in Santa Margarita, Calif. on August 10. A large part of their wedding was completely homemade — from the wooden signs that said, “God gave me you” (from the Blake Shelton country song) and wooden boxes used for centerpieces to the intricately stitched quilt signed by each guest and popsicle sticks written with date night suggestions. That wasn’t all! Since the groom is a pilot, he folded over 150 paper airplanes for guests to throw as they walked down the aisle as husband and wife. Keep in mind that the bride was wearing her mother’s veil too. In lieu of a traditional cake, mini pocket pies were served as desserts and salted caramels were given out as favors.
