Kate and Ryan’s beautiful California wedding took place at Spanish Oaks Ranch, where both their ceremony and reception occurred outside in the sunshine- and I’m convinced the sun always shines just a little brighter in California!
When designing their wedding, Kate turned to her sister-in-law, Nicole, as well as her mom to assist with creating her dream look. She settled on a color palette filled with blush, mint, ivory, and gold. I also love that the family team added dusty green in the form of eucalyptus from Ryan’s family’s property to the bouquets and centerpieces they also made themselves. Plus, Kate’s shares my view of flowers: you simply can never have enough! Kate felt as though her guests faded away during the ceremony while she recited her vows to Ryan and listened to her uncle officiate the ceremony (so sweet, y’all!). We’re so thankful Sarah Kathleen sent all of the lovely photos from Kate and Ryan’s wedding day to us, and we can’t wait for you to take them all in!
Kate notes that you should hire a photographer who you would also invite to your wedding as a guest. Personally, I think that advice is true for all wedding professionals, don’t you?
