Brittany & Justin: Rustic Glamour at Holman Ranch

Holman Ranch is what I have to thank for bringing these two to us. Because we had already planned and designed Joel & Sariah’s wedding at the ranch, they hired us for our “expertise” (haha). We enjoyed every minute working with them. Brittany loves bling and had hoped to get married at a Tuscan Villa, but given the size of their family (and Justin’s practical side) they ruled this out. Holman definitely has an Italian feel and a bit of flare (but is much closer to Brittany & Justin's hometown), so it came in a close second.

We planned over wine and italian food which definitely helped with the Italian vibe. We gravitated towards neutrals and greens with a hint of glitz, which led us to tons of eucalyptus, mercury glass, lace and gold chargers. The ceremony was stunning - B & J looked absolutely gorgeous and their bridal parties weren’t too shabby either ;) We opted for simple aisle arrangements of green lemon leaves with a bunch of roses, and we had wine barrels as the focal point of the altar with Carmel Valley as a backdrop.

The dinner was something straight out of a movie with beautiful people, an accordionist playing in the background, and some amazingly heartfelt speeches. Justin is a lover of candy so we designed a Candy Bar featuring all of Justin’s favorites, in addition to a cake for Brittany. After dessert, Brittany and Justin busted a move (complete with props, acting, and SF Niner jackets)


Love you guys! Thanks for letting us be a part of your special day!
