From the Bride

Early in our planning, we decided that we wanted to have a SaddleRock Ranch wedding at the vineyard. The morning of the wedding started bright and early, and from the beginning the day was full of excitement and joy. We had planned our wedding for nearly two years! When our wedding day finally came, everything felt so unreal, like a magical fairytale was unfolding. It was an amazing feeling knowing that our family and friends, many of whom had traveled far, had all come together to support us for our next chapter in life.


Remembering Special Moments

We decided to have our “first look” along a long corridor at our AirBnb. During our moment, both of us felt much anticipation. Walking down the long corridor to reach my husband to be was surreal!!! When I finally saw him for the “first time”, I was overwhelmed with emotion. I’m not someone who usually cries, but I definitely let out tears of joy in that moment.

One of my favorite moments of our day was exchanging our vows. I remember it vividly. Chris and I decided to each write our own personalized vows. Being at the altar is a very intimate place to be and we wanted our vows to reflect that. Even being in front of family and friends, in that moment, it still felt like we were the only ones there.

Our wedding day was an absolutely magical fairytale. Every moment was stunning. We loved SaddleRock Ranch wedding at the vineyard because it was entirely outdoors. The ceremony and reception sat on top of a hill overlooking surrounding rolling vineyard hills. Everything collectively perfectly fit the romantic, whimsical feel we were going for. Much of our decor revolved around a blush-to-cabernet ombre color scheme, including the bridesmaids dresses, table settings, flowers centerpieces. We added small elements of gold and marble to add a modern touch. Despite the day flying by, we were able to enjoy every moment of it and wouldn’t change a thing.

From the Photographers

When Chris and Alice first spoke with us about their wedding day, I knew their wedding would be dreamy. We absolutely loved their chic whimsical style that reflected their personality through the entire day. When they mentioned they wanted a SaddleRock Ranch wedding at the vineyard my heart leapt! Before their day, I had not photographed at this particular venue. I knew that this day would be full of wonder and beauty.

Through our planning process, Alice and I discussed colors, styling, florals as well as her favorite locations at SaddleRock. We made a plan to travel throughout the entire ranch to capture some of her dream shots. I’m so glad that we planned to have extra time for photos, all throughout the day. We were able to photograph in the valleys, at the top of the mountains, at the door that leads to nowhere, and so many more locations. In my opinion, being able to help both Chris & Alice achieve their wedding day vision made our jobs a success. When we can champion a client’s heart into their photos, I believe that we have done our jobs well.

~ Love, Tiffani

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

Jason Wahler and Ashley Slack get married // Calamigos Ranch Wedding

how she did it

FROM THE BRIDE //  When planning our wedding, Jason and I wanted our day to be full of romance and beauty. It was easy for us to choose our venue, because we love the look of classic estate garden parties and we both love the feel and whimsy of 1940’s fashion. Immediately, we both fell in love with the vintage garden feel that the Garden Patio at Calamigos Ranch had to offer. We knew it was our day and we wanted it have a beautiful classic feel with a little bit of hollywood glamour mixed in.

When looking back at our day, I remember walking down the aisle most vividly. Jason and I had decided that we wanted to wait to see one another until we met at the alter. It was exhilarating to see my soon-to-be husband standing under a beautiful arbor full of flowers and fabric tearing up. As my dad walked me down the aisle I could see all of my friends and family smiling and tears of joy welling in their eyes. They could all feel the true love in the air!

We were very interested in having the best photographers that captured our personalities. We wanted our day to be told as a story without words. We wanted our images to not only give you a sense of sight but a feeling when you saw them. The best part about our photographers is the simplicity behind their images. I loved that every moment was documented and that we were able to see our true emotions and love for one another without feeling like we were pushed and pulled in 100 directions. I loved that everything was not posed and just very effortless the photography made you feel something and i loved the way they help capture memories that tell a story.

My biggest and best advice for anyone planning a wedding is to make your wedding day the most beautiful wedding you have ever seen! The day goes by so fast and you don’t really want to miss any moment. Even though it is an investment make the details count because you will appreciate that your day was the most perfect day of your life. Your guests will love you no matter what, but I am so happy that we spent the time to make everything as big as my dreams. Also make sure you have fun and remember everyone is there for you and you husband.
