Rustic Fall ranch wedding in Temecula: Lauren + Brent

February 6, 2017

An airstream. A red barn. Vintage furniture. The Retro Ranch in Temecula, CA already had all the rustic details Lauren + Brent wanted in a venue (not to mention space for 257 guests), so when they got down to decorating, it was all about adding outdoorsy, boho touches. Starting with, of course, this Dreamers and Lovers dress—what else? Thanks to Anna Delores Photography for sharing!

Lauren says, We chose Anna Delores Photography because I had seen pictures of a friend’s wedding and absolutely fell in love with the style of their photos. We went for a meeting with Emily and Rhianna and immediately connected with them. Coincidentally, they were already scheduled to shoot my cousins wedding in October of 2015. We had no idea when we booked them. It was just meant to be.

The bride’s bouquet recipe: a mostly neutral blend with pops of burgundy dahlia and blush spray roses, quicksand roses, grey brunia berries with brown feathers

On their venue… The view was incredible. I also wanted a place where we could stay with our whole bridal party and this place by far exceeded my expectations. It just had everything Brent and I wanted in a wedding venue. The owners Jill and Chris are so cool and laidback. We took advantage of the main house, guest house, and honeymoon suite. Where everyone stayed comfortably. There was a swimming pool and jacuzzi right outside of the main house that everyone enjoyed after the rehearsal dinner which also took place there. It was a huge party with all of our closest friends and family and it was all just so magical. We couldn’t have picked a better venue that would be this true to everything Brent and I are about. We loved every minute of it!

The most memorable moment from the day was our first look. We originally didn’t want to do a first look, but we changed our minds because of timing. It turned out to be such a special moment with just the two of us in front of the airstream and we both were crying like babies!

So cute. Congrats guys!
