Be prepared to be overwhelmed by the country elegance of today’s rustic fall wedding! Nikki & Ryan tied the knot in a stunning outdoor autumn ceremony at the historic Santa Margarita Ranch! The incredibly talented Danae Grace helped them put together a beautiful day inspired by the rustic charm of the ranch itself.
Guests enjoyed a post-ceremony ride around the ranch on the gorgeous Pacific Coast Railroad that runs through the property before enjoying specialty cocktails and appetizers provided by Trumpet Vine Catering. Dinner and dancing were held in the property’s historic barn, decorated with strands of twinkling lights, eclectic fall florals by Valley Flora, and an array of cakes, pies, and desserts by Two Little Birds Bakery! Perhaps the biggest testament to the relaxed nature of our couple and the skills of their wedding vendors is Nikki’s bridal horror story – when her gorgeous gown was liberally splattered with BBQ sauce! Rather than bemoan the fate of her pristine gown, Nikki went with new hubby Ryan and their amazing photographer Weston Neuschafer on a hike around the ranch while Danae found her a replacement dress to dance in!
