Classic Romantic Ranch Wedding

Real Weddings

After blogging for almost two years and reading wedding blogs/magazines for years before that, I have a pretty extensive mental list of favorite vendors and venues from all over the world. Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu, California lands pretty high on the list of favorite venues, which is why I’m thrilled and honored to share this wedding today, photographed by Picotte Photography. The blush details, daring wedding dress, luscious florals, and gorgeous ceremony space are proof that choosing wedding details you love trumps choosing whatever is trendy–I would never guess from glancing at it that this wedding took place in 2010. Also…there’s a zebra, which is pretty much the most amazing detail ever!

{Vendors: Photographer: Picotte Photography| Venue: Saddlerock Ranch| Event planning: Krista Malinin from Amber Events| Florals: Hollyflora| Bride’s dress: Amy Michelson| Hair and makeup: John of Italy| Rentals: Town & Country Event Rentals| Paper: Wedding Paper Divas| Cake: A Sweet Design| Catering: Contemporary Catering| Ceremony string musicians: Alison Spieth Trio| Band: No Vacancy Entertainment}

I can’t get over the bride’s style, from her gorgeous dress to her lush rose and peony bouquet! What’s your favorite detail? Thank you so much to Suthi Picotte for the honor of sharing this truly beautiful wedding.

Love, Lisa
