From the Bride

Before I even was engaged, I knew that I wanted a Oak Grove wedding at SaddleRock Ranch. There are so many reasons why I wanted to get married in this magical place, but my biggest reason is that it’s an adventure. Jacob and I had loved adventure from the beginning. We originally met on ok cupid. So silly, I know, but I always knew that my soulmate would find me somehow. Thank goodness for the internet!

One of my favorite memories with Jacob was the day he proposed. Through his work, Jacob was invited on a trip to visit economic development, education, and health care projects in Kenya. Jacob had begged and begged me for months to come to Africa with him. Finally, he convinced me to meet him in Nairobi at the end of his trip. We were planning to travel in Uganda together and take a safari tour for a week.  It was a magical dream.

The safari drives were enlightened, filled with gorgeous animals and beautiful landscapes. We went biking in a zebra-filled national park. We were able to feed many African animals in a nursery for the little babies. And finally, we went hiking with gorillas. After one of our drives in Queen Elizabeth National Park, the guide drove us to a lookout point over the Great Rift Valley. We stayed there for a while, waiting for the sunset. As the sun started setting, Jacob expressed his love for me and asked “Uganda marry me?” Of course I cried, then I jumped up and down and nodded my head. I was crying so hard I couldn’t even say the word, “YES!” And that was start of our magical wedding adventures. What an amazing adventure we get to cherish!

~ with love, Negin

 


From the Photographers
It’s such a blessing that we were able to work with Jacob & Negin.  My husband, Dan, met Negin at his job over 10 years ago. Since then, Negin and I have been friends. When she reached out to me to photograph her Oak Grove wedding at SaddleRock Ranch , I was honored and humbled. I love being a close part of my friend’s wedding days. When a friend or family member wants to share that part of their lives with me, I feel like I am trustworthy to hold such special moments in my hands.
Negin was such a wonderful bride! Through h er day, many things did not go as planned, especially the weather. The temperature skyrocketed to 110 degrees, right in the middle of her wedding day. It was very hot, but even still very beautiful. Luckily, the ceremony was right at sunset. The twinkling lights

FROM THE BRIDE // After a year of planning our dream wedding, it took almost a week for Ben and I to fully debrief our wedding experience together. One of his favorite recollections was just before our first look: he not only heard the click-clack of my footsteps, but also realized that he could hear his heart beating from excitement and anticipation. Those felt like the longest 20 seconds of his life, and he knew things were about to get real. I could relate: as I tapped him on his shoulder and saw his face light up, I suddenly felt a sudden wave of eagerness and joy. When the processional began, I walked toward him once again, this time as he stood beneath our lush, fragrant chuppah, before our family and friends. It might have been because of the lighting during the ceremony, but the only thing we could really focus on was each other. He took my hand as we said our vows—never without a wide, gleeful smile across our faces. 

The rest of our wedding can only be described as a magical blur! Although we spent a lot of time and energy painstakingly picking out ivory linens, white and blush floral arrangements, signature cocktails and decadent meals for our timeless affair, we didn’t get a chance to focus on any single detail that day. The best part of our wedding reception was seeing the Cheshire cat grins on our guests’ faces, as they danced the night away and knew they were part of the most special night of our lives.

Our advice for engaged couples is simple: You prepare for how you think you should feel during your wedding, but how you anticipate feeling is nowhere close to the overwhelming happiness you’ll experience as your wedding is actually happening (or recreating those feelings afterward while you look at your pictures). Stay in the moment, and take my Nana’s words to heart: don’t sweat the small stuff—it’s all small stuff.

WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND YOUR WEDDING?
We’ve been living in Downtown Los Angeles for over 4 years. We’ve had front row seats to the “Downtown Renaissance” and absolutely love living in the middle of so much change. There’s excitement in the air. We really wanted to show our friends and family what we get to experience on a day-to-day basis. Downtown naturally has this old-school glamorous feel. As soon as we walked into Cicada, just a few blocks from our loft, we knew it was the place. Everything else just flowed with that 1920s glamorous vibe.
 
WHAT WAS THE MOST MEMORABLE/FAVORITE PART ABOUT YOUR WEDDING DAY?
Hers: David’s reaction during the first look. It was priceless. My second favorite was dancing with my grandfather to an old mariachi song “Mi Niña Bonita“. My grandmother passed away recently and was a huge mariachi fan. It was a very special moment.
 
His: All of it.
DID YOU DO ANY DIY PROJECTS? IF SO, WHAT?
We did a few DIY projects and my best advice is to start early. You definitely don’t want to be doing any DIY in the weeks leading up to the wedding. For our guest gifts/table decorations we bought little 2×3 frames and filled them with pictures of the two of us and the people sitting at the table. It was our way to make them feel special. We chose the “Up” score to process to, so we also made the iconic mailbox from the movie with “David & Dulce” painted on the side of it with our handprints.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF BEING MARRIED NOW?
There’s a certain gravitas that comes with marriage. We’re both enjoying that feeling.
