Sage, Iris, Messi and Cypress get a bonus Mom!

Julie agreed to not only be Jason’s wife this week in Corralitos, but also to be step-mom to Jason’s 4 children ages 3 and up! It was truly a family wedding.



The setting was the classic Padres Hall and grounds which was really special for Jason’s family from Alabama many of whom had never seen the Redwoods!

The beauty of the day was welcomed after days of gloom in Corralitos but it was the children who stole the show!

Barn Wedding at River House

Letysia & Shawn’s big day went off without a hitch, despite lots of rain! Thankfully River House’s new, beautiful barn could provide not just shelter from the storm but a perfect backdrop for the wedding.

We ended up moving everything, including ceremony, into the barn and the results were spectacular.

The newlyweds had their whole families a part of the processional, including some super cute kiddos who carried adorable signs down the aisle.

The couple decided to have some private time prior to the reception and chose to eat their dinner privately from the guests toward the end of cocktail hour. This allowed them some one on one time and a chance to actually eat their dinner without interruptions. This also allowed them to be able to go around and chat with guests once dinner had started. I highly recommend this for newlyweds!

We had an absolutely wonderful time working with this fantastic pair and wish them a lifetime of love!

Rain in May won't Spoil their Day

What about rain? People ask this all the time when they’re booking sites and usually we say that there isn’t much in between May-October. Well this week was the exception. Two large tents were erected on Friday morning at Rancho Soquel, one for the ceremony and one for the dining.

The couple served pie and cake and then the dancing was moved inside the barn where the guests could stay dry while they partied!

Come Check Out Our New Venue - The Orchard!

We have some new photos from our new beautiful venue The Orchard!

This historic barn has been fully restored from the floors to roof and is now ready to book your special event. The working apple orchard has been around since the 1800's and sits on 15 acres of gorgeous  land in Corralitos. The orchard produces heritage Granny Smith, Red Delicious, Pippins and many other varieties. The landscape changes with the seasons…It is loaded with blossoms for your Spring wedding and the trees are full of amazing smelling apples in the Fall. They are able to do weddings year round due to the spacious barn and flat fields, perfect for tenting.

The farmhouse and barn are  surrounded by Oak, Redwood and Eucalyptus groves that will make an amazing backdrop for ceremony and alfresco dining. Cocktail hour could be on the barn porch and there is plenty of room for dancing and cake cutting inside the barn after dinner. Bare bulb lighting is installed inside and out for evening events. Inside the farmhouse is a bridal room for getting ready with floor to ceiling windows of the fields and orchard outside.

Last Wedding of the Season!

Taylor & Jeff’s October 13th wedding at Rancho Soquel was laid back and fun, just like the newlyweds themselves.

The couple were cool and calm throughout the whole process of wedding planning and transferred that energy to their wedding day also. They added some fun and personal touches to the day, including personalized corn hole boards and coasters and giving their guests a couple of scratchers to try their luck at winning big!

The bride looked beautiful in a simple, but elegant gown. Perfect for dancing the night away under the stars! We wish these two a lifetime of love!
