Elise & Brian’s Wedding

I was so excited when Elise told me that she and Brian were planning a ‘Royal Wedding in a Cow Pasture’ out on their family ranch in Cambria, Ca.

Now of course, I had no idea what a ‘Royal Wedding in a Cow Pasture’ was, as I’d never been to one, nor heard of one, and that made it even more exciting! But I did know, with Elise’s ultra creative talents pulling and sewing the proverbial strings, the day was going to be phenomenal. And it was!

I’m so happy to be able to share with you today just a tiny glimpse of how amazing the day was!

Elise & Brian

Talk about an entrance! Brian and Elise know how to travel in this amazingly magical horse drawn carriage.

The setting was simply gorgeous!

I loved the perfectly-mismatched wood chairs and bistro lights strung between the house and barn.Wine Country Wedding Reception

On each table were unique place setters with flowers and succulents in tin boxes and cement construction-blocks. Everywhere you went you would discover new elements of Elise’s personal touches.

This is a couple that knows how to have a good time! Elise said that when Brian first met her, all he had to do was follow the sound of her ‘loud laughter’. They are truly perfect together.

Somehow they managed to get one of the best bands I’ve ever heard at a wedding: The Rudy Parris Band, who is also the finalist from one of our favorite shows, The Voice (“Go Team Blake!”) These guys had the crowd jumping all night long to country greats, mixed with ACDC,  Sublime, and even a little Def Leopard – by request! rudy-parris-the-voice-wedding-band

Elise and Brian’s wedding was more than just a day where two love birds said their ‘I do’s – The entire day was a full, morning-to-night experience of sunny pastures, cool weather, and happy smiles from everyone that they love and cherish. I was so happy I got to be a part of it!

Oh, and of course I’m obliged to mention:
