Bianca + Andrew’s dream for their wedding was to make it feel like home: she grew up on a farm in central California and he grew up in San Luis County so Pepper Tree Ranch, a ranch venue with a barn in SLO encapsulated home for both of them. Major bonus that it could accommodate a guest list of 200 in their 5 month timeframe! Onto the photos by Mallory Dawn Photography…
Isn’t Bianca’s Pronovias gown a stunner?
Bianca says, We wanted our wedding to be very Anthropologie and rustic, while still being classy. We chose very soft colors to contrast the boys in navy, and our flowers were also pastels and neutrals… I did the invitations and we got those letter pressed through an incredible local printer. My talented friends did the lettering for our signage. We also did most all of the construction projects. Andrew and I also spent weekends building farm tables that were used for our guests and we also built the frame for the doors at the end of the isle, and my dad built the donut wall out of old barn wood. Additionally, my mom made the peach jam for our guest favor.
Pepper Tree also has vineyard views and a backdrop of the foothills.
We also hoped to create different experiences for our guests: our ceremony felt intimate, our cocktail hour took in the sunset views from a treehouse, and our barn reception fulfilled my dream of feeling at home. From our 24 person bridal party to donuts instead of cake (our classic go-to date), we added meaningful details to make our wedding represent who we are and our love for each other and our people.
