Are you ready to see the most charming garden party? Today’s blog features the wedding of Jocelyn and Dennis at Beltane Ranch. You know Beltane Ranch in Glen Ellen, California is one of my absolute favorite venues (because yes, I tend to rave about it on my Instagram feed now and again). So, it’s always a pleasure for me to photograph a celebration at this venue. The landscape is stunning- a photographer’s dream- with oak trees, gardens, a vineyard, open spaces, and plenty of ranch animals to find along the way.
Wedding Design Details
Jocelyn and Dennis chose a fabulous team of wedding pros to work with, starting with the team of Kaella Lynn Events. We asked Kaella for some details about planning and designing the garden wedding celebration and she filled us in.
“Jocelyn and Dennis wanted an intimate and elegant wedding that was, most of all, authentic to them and truly took care of each and every guest. We worked together to ensure each selection truly represented them and would add to a warm and thoughtful experience for their guests. Their discerning taste meant no detail was left unnoticed and the final result was a very beautiful and personal celebration. To create this in the design, we enhanced Beltane Ranch’s garden aesthetic with beautiful romantic Spring florals. Luxurious textured linens, beautiful Theoni china and upholstered chairs added elegance and formality to the affair, while minimal paper goods kept the overall feel a simple elegance. To add personal touches, the couple added some of their favorite quotes through the wedding, both on the welcome sign and each table number. While the visual aesthetics were important, so was the overall sensory experience. A huge focus was the food and The Girl and The Fig customized a deliciously seasonal and farm to table menu for everyone to enjoy. Wines were meticulously paired to each dish. The bride’s daughter sang a special duet for the couple that was a highlight of the evening. It was an incredibly touching celebration.” ~Kaella Lynn
