Do you remember that feeling when you were just a wide-eyed child of visiting the magical land of Disney for the first time? Multiply that by 100 and that might justify my pure joy and excitement of getting the opportunity to work at Dos Pueblos Ranch in Goleta with two people I absolutely love and admire. Words cannot describe.
Let's rewind a bit... Joelle and Brian are quite possibly two of the most rad people walking this planet. Getting to work closely with them for a year and a half was an incredible experience. Joelle has the most kind heart of anyone I have ever met. She is the type of person that immediately lights up a room and makes instant friends with just about everyone she meets. Brian puts a simple on your face and makes you feel completely at ease. These two are over the top in a lot of ways, they are both so genuinely nice and quirky and fun in all the best ways. On the other hand they are incredibly humble in the way they approach life, appreciating all the little details and not taking any day or anyone for granted. Creating a wedding that reflected the amazingness of these two was no small task but it was worth every last handcrafted detail and perfectly placed stem. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. Of course Dos Pueblos Ranch is the venue wedding vendor dreams are made of. I think Joelle and I both found the venue within hours of each other and both instantly knew it was the one. However, I did drag them around to a few more just to be certain. After the date was secured we spent the last year and a half selecting every last detail of the wedding. From the light bulbs used to the interior of the restrooms. haha See you didn't believe me! I meant EVERY single detail. I hope you enjoy their wedding. So many incredible memories were made that night.
When a girl from Buffalo dreams of getting married at a barn at the beach you find her a barn and the most epic clifftop ocean view.
Janet, I mean come on! These photos are pure gold!!!
THIS. This reception space blows my mind. Even when it is completely bare it is stunning so you could imagine how incredibly excited I was to add in some fun designs. Joelle said she wanted her wedding to be bright, fun and happy. Hand painted vases, crafted tassels and succulents on every place-setting, dyed fabric and old fencing from my parents house were some of my favorite details from this wedding. And of course those place-cards from Ampersand Collections were incredible.
