Real Wedding: Kate and Ryan featured on Green Wedding Shoes

Sep 29, 2015

Kate and Ryan came across their ideal wedding venue, Calamigos Ranch, after a friend suggested they check it out. They loved it for its resemblance to one of their favorite places to vacation, Big Sur. They worked with Honey and Poppies to design floral accents to enhance the natural surroundings at their venue, with plenty of greens and pinecones, which carried throughout their wedding (check out their pinecone escort cards!).bride with dog, bride in strapless lace gown with white and green bouquet

In an intimate ceremony, nestled in the Redwood Room, Aaron Young Photography captured Kate and Ryan seeing each other for the first time as she walked down the aisle. Their cute pup even made an appearance.

Our favorite part of the day was the couple’s first dance together- a nod to Kate’s dance background- and a hit with all of their guests. Be sure to head over to Green Wedding Shoes for more pretty details!
