Most of us have dreamt of our wedding day since, well, childhood. And this bride was no different. You’ll be giddy just reading Taelor’s, the blogging babe behind Taebur, depiction of her elegant California ranch wedding! The big, beautiful day, as we all hope, was even better than she imagined. Our favorite elements in particular are her dress (more on that later) and the natural beauty of the venue, emphasized by neutral colors and simple table settings.
Taelor says, I had dreamt of my wedding day since before I can even remember. What would my dress look like? Would I be nervous? Where would I get married? How much fun will my future husband and I have dancing? So many questions came to mind when I was dreaming of my wedding day. Then, the day finally came when I got engaged, and now it was time to start making those dreams into plans.
My husband and I love to have a great time and dance, so we wanted our guests to do the same. That is why Quail Ranch was so perfect. It is naturally stunning, but also has a relaxed California feel to it. For decor, I went with mostly greenery and natural colors, to allow the natural beauty of the venue to shine. The venue is also a working avocado farm, so I made sure to incorporate that into the invitations.
My mom was a huge help throughout the entire process, as well as all of our amazing vendors. The first thing that was decided on was my wedding dress. My mom and I went to countless stores in the SoCal area. The search seemed to be hopeless, but then, my mom mentioned my dad had seen a beautiful bridal store when they were visiting Santa Barbara a few weeks prior, so we hopped in the car and went off to Panache Bridal. It was there that I found my dream dress.
The dress was such a huge part of the inspiration for the wedding; it was classy, elegant, and most of all it was French stretch lace, so it was unbelievably comfortable. This is how I wanted the wedding to feel. I wanted it to be beautiful and elegant, but I also wanted the atmosphere to be fun, where people could relax and enjoy themselves.
Overall, the dreams that I had as a little girl came to life in more ways than I could have imagined.
