It really isn’t every day or even every year for that matter, that you get to visit not one, but two, stunning wedding venues in the same day. Kelly and Jeff had an amazing wedding that brought together their family and friends for not just one day but a weekend of fun in gorgeous San Luis Obispo. The festivities started the night before at the Flying Caballos Ranch for their rehearsal dinner. Seriously, the perfect spot for any gathering. I’m so smitten over this ranch. The couple also got ready at the ranch before they were bussed over to the Dana Powers Barn for their wedding the next day. While the couple got ready, they kept with tradition and didn’t see each other before hand. They did make use of one of their wedding gifts – a walkie talkie set!  It was so cute watching these two chat over their new tech toys while super excited for their wedding just hours away. The couple was married in the gardens along side the Dana Powers House and after the ceremony they walked their guests over to the barn to officially kick off the cocktail hour and reception.

I can say that I have loved each and every wedding that I have had the pleasure of photographing. I am extremely lucky because I end up with the most amazing couples and I can honestly say that I can’t recall any crazy bridezilla moments. Thank goodness! That being said, while I look forward to all of the weddings I capture, every year there are a few that I pretty much countdown to. Weddings that I know are going to be amazing. There are quite a few different reasons that make these weddings stand out for me. It might be that I just fell in love with the couple during their engagement session, exploring locations, admiring their style, and creating gorgeous photos together. Maybe they mentioned casually that they were opting to throw tradition out the door and do something different like breakfast for dinner. I love couples that aren’t afraid to do something different, something that reflects them. It might just be the venue. A venue that can bring my creatively and joy to a new level. Or maybe the opportunity to work with some talented local vendors, I mean have you seen the crazy gorgeous stuff that the ladies over at Zest it up! create?!? Every once in a while it is all of the above and then some. Stephanie and Aaron held their wedding at the oh-so-perfect Flying Caballos Ranch in San Luis Obispo. This bright yellow farmhouse of happiness was the perfect place for these two love birds to tie the knot. It was charming, relaxed, and stylish, just like them. I knew the day would be a true reflection of Steph and Aaron and I’m pretty sure that is why I was so excited to be there to document it all for them. Please take some time to check out their wedding day slideshow above.

It’s no secret that the San Ysidro Ranch is one of my all time favorite wedding venues, ever! On its own, SYR is pure perfection, but add an ultra stylish bride and groom in the mix and you take things to a level that is pretty much off the charts. You need to stop what you are doing right this moment and check out Nancy and Josh’s spectacular wedding day slideshow above. It will make you swoon with wedding envy.
