Central Coast wedding with Travel Inspired Touches


Central Coast wedding at Greengate Ranch

Amy and Tim met back in their freshman year at Chapman University in a foundations course 8 years ago. They were hallmates, good friends, and part of the same friend group throughout the next year. They didn’t start dating until their sophomore year and they would both whole heartedly agree that they were both so thankful for that they had a solid year of friendship under their belts before they realized that there was something more between them. Because as they would both tell you, and I’d have to chime in here and agree too, nothing beats marrying your best friend.

Once the planning began, Amy and Tim brought on a “dream team” of Central Coast vendors to help bring their vision to life. Amy shared, “It was truly important to not only bring on vendors that do beautiful work, but are also just the kind of people you’d truly want to be friends with! It was so fun to not only connect with vendors over our shared love of design and beautiful things, but also because they made the process feel so much easier and stress free. Many of our meetings felt like I was hanging with a good friend

and their enthusiasm and attention to detail made things so much easier on my end.”

While Amy and Tim dated they traveled to countless locations on the globe and they pulled that love of traveling into parts of their big day. Their escort display showcased all of the places that they’d been together and it was a showstopping way to welcome thier guests into the party. Vanessa Noel Events brought not only the escort display to new levels, but the whole event was jaw droppingly beautiful. From the flowers by Noonan’s Designs that ranged from the colors of a breathtaking Central Coast sunset, to the perfectly placed lounges from Avenue Twelve Rentals, the dessert display that I’m still dreaming about crafted by the ladies behind Paper Cake Events, the paper goods created by Prim and Pixie, and the most beautiful venue located in San Luis Obispo, Greengate Ranch, this wedding was exquisitely designed but most importantly it was filled with LOVE.
