A reception under the night sky was high on the list of priorities when searching for a venue and this sweet duo found a winner, winner with Brookview Ranch. Coordinated by Wedding Kate, along with lush florals by Rockrose Floral Design and beautiful images by Michelle Beller, feast your eyes on the most gorgeous mix of classic garden details with a modern twist. Instead of an arch, there's a rose infused A-frame, bridesmaids gowns are replaced with silk rompers and guests arrived to a pre-ceremony cocktail hour and lawn games. Sounds pretty darn fab if you ask us. From the Bride... Dave and I were both born and raised in California and wanted to have an intimate outdoor wedding in the summer surrounded by nature and our loved ones, followed by a reception under the night sky. We fell in love with Brookview Ranch the moment we stepped onto the property. Everything was so green with large Oak Trees and white rose bushes surrounding the ceremony lawn. The most beautiful Olive Tree’s encompassing the reception area and 360 degree mountain views at the top of the property…we knew it was the perfect place for our wedding. We wanted our wedding day to be laid back with both a classic and modern feel with neutral tones and pops of lush and deep colors with rose gold and mustard accents which came out in our ceremony benches, long farm tables at reception, rose gold flatware, peach glassware, neutral linens and table runners, wood and crème taper candles and mustard ribbons while our deep and lush pops of color came from the stunning floral center pieces. We had a so much fun tying together all the different elements we envisioned and creating complimenting details with our wonderful vendors. Our friends and family arrived to a pre cocktail hour with delicious passed appetizers, a beautiful charcuterie, lawn games and refreshing drinks to cool everyone down in the surprise 106-degree heat wave. We said “I do’s!” under our custom built wood A Frame, adorned with incredible cascading florals while My sister and brother in law lead our ceremony. My mom walked me down the isle. We both wanted pieces of our grandparents with us so Dave wore his grandfather’s watch and I wore my grandmothers wedding band. Once it cooled down and guests were on the dance floor, we stole a minute and watched the sunset together from the top of the mountain overlooking the venue. Pink clouds surrounding a rising moon, set the back drop for a perfect romantic photo sequence.
