Homegrown Orchard Wedding

We’re so smitten by Alice and Jake’s wedding sent to us by the amazing Raya Carlisle.  It took place on the groom’s family’s avocado and lemon ranch in Santa Paula, CA and the way they incorporated so many unique and personal details is perfect.  First of all, the wreath that Alice is wearing is made of wax orange blossoms her grandmother (who she was named after) wore for her wedding in 1943 as well as her mother for her wedding…talk about a special “something old” and “something borrowed”!  The fruit/nut artwork used as table numbers were watercolors created by a friend and each fruit or nut is something the family currently grows on the ranch.  And would you believe that this gorgeous ceremony was originally a donkey corral!?  Incredible!  It’s always fun to see how little touches like the bistro lights and handmade wooden boxes can totally transform a space.

Be Prepared to Be Inspired..
