A Sweet Pair!

Caitlin & Corey were the perfect pair at their July 28th wedding at Rancho Soquel! They surrounded themselves with an amazing group of family and friends and by the end of the night no one wanted the leave they were having such a good time! 

The guest's started the day with a mini photo shoot for the photo guest book. The bride provided cute photo props for the guests to pose using! 

The bride looked stunning as she walked down the aisle hand and hand with her mom. The couple said I Do under the beautifully decorated arch, full of lush greenery and flowers provided by Tarnish & Bloom. 

The guest's dine on a yummy buffet from Mickey's Catering while Buttercup Cakes provided the sweet treats with their cute mini cupcakes. 

The rest of the night was spent dancing and celebrating this amazing couple! We loved working with them on their special day and wish them a lifetime of happiness!

Summer Wedding with a Sweet Ending!

Kathy and Doug's July 21st wedding at Rancho Soquel was filled with summer colors, lots of fun and a happy bride and groom!

The wedding colors were shades of blues and yellows, perfect for a lovely summer day! The bridesmaids looked fresh in their light blue dresses and the bride accessorized her beautiful gown with a yellow sash to match her flower girl's dress!

The newlyweds jammed out on the dance floor and treated their guests to an ice cream sundae bar provided by Sweet Surf Catering. 

Everyone had such a fabulous time, especially our wonderful bride and groom! We wish them many more happy times ahead!

Now here's a wedding that you wish you would have been invited to...

From the funny ceremony performed by the best man at Julie's Mom's wedding (no kidding,he was!) to the cookies and ice creme dessert, Julie and Shawn had a wedding that was super fun.

The double door entrance was built by Julie's Dad and the flowers were arranged by one of her bridesmaids (not too DYI since she owns a florist shop :)

Favorite touch was the choice of music....DJ Jeffty handled the mix beautifully as the Groom started down the aisle to "Hot for Teacher" by Van Halen ( yes, Julie is a teacher) and Shawn and his Mom wowed the guests with "Sweet Child of Mine" Guns and Roses for their Mother - Son dance!

Family style dinner from Feast for a King

The ceremonial cutting cake was a favorite family recipe baked the night before by Julie and her Mom. They frosted it, popped the flowers on and it was every bit as lovely as a bakery bought cake. The cake, however, was just a tease for the lavish cookie and ice creme display. Special touches were the wooden spoons engraved with their names for eating the yummy containers of Mariannes ice creme. Swirled caramel, Vanilla and Pomegranate Sorbet!  Chocolate Chip, Macadamia nut chip and Oatmeal raisin cookies to go along side. Truly a hit!

We wish this fabulous and fun couple at the love and happiness in the world!

 

 

Magical Day at Rancho Soquel!

It was the perfect day at Rancho Soquel for Emily and Tom's July 29th wedding! Family and friends pitched in to make the day wonderful for the newlyweds! The bride's aunt even created the stunning floral arrangements and the groom's dad provided the magnificent getaway car. 

The bride looked ethereal in her gown and the groom very dashing in his blue suit. 

A fun surprise moment for the guests happened when the bride and her dad donned cowboy boots for their father/daughter dance to the delight of everyone! 

Another sweet touch was the football the groom threw for the garter toss was the same football the bride had caught at a previous wedding. The couple gave away brittle for the guests to munch on as they headed off for the after party, escorted by the bride and groom in that amazing car! 

Beautiful wedding day at Baxter Family Farm

Maryann and Josh tied the knot on a gorgeous afternoon at Baxter Family Farm in Aptos. The apple orchard that surrounds the farmhouse was bursting with ripe apples and the roses were all in bloom-gorgeous day! Maryann and her Dad looked radiant!

After the ceremony, the guests had a ball on the swing and enjoying cocktail time on the porch

When your ringbearer is a cute little doggie named Einstein, he's bound to steal the show! Maryann made coasters with maps of their travels and the tables were named for the places they have traveled to. Pie was the dessert of choice.

Since photos were taken in the orchard, there were more than a few foxtails in Maryann's dress but her wedding party happily groomed her prior to the entrance...Fun day was had by all!
