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.
