Quail Ranch Wedding – Katie & Eric

This Quail Ranch wedding in Simi Valley, CA is one of our all time favs! Katie and Eric also happen to be our FAVORITE couple! They are the absolute sweetest and their zest for life is contagious! Upon meeting them they make you feel included and appreciated. They were an instant hit with us and we knew their wedding day was going to be one to remember. With Wedding Kate at the forefront, and working with Katie, not a single detail was left untouched. From Katie’s pink Hayley Paige wedding gown, Eric’s white leather bowtie, and the gorgeous reception details, this wedding has stylish written all over it. Rustic weddings have been popular from sometime now, but this was no ordinary ‘rustic’ wedding. The elegance seen throughout their entire day is one to make you envy every choice you made with your own wedding.

Katie’s pink Hayley Paige gown is one to make every bride jealous. And the photos really don’t do it justice! The deep v cut in the front is the perfect amount of sexy and yet incredibly classy. The long train just accentuates this already stunning gown.

The romantics are one of our favorite parts of every wedding day! Getting that intimate time with just the bride and groom makes for such pretty photos. They forget everyhting else going on around them and just focus on each other. Thats when the tender moments, the soft touches happen.

Their ceremony was set under a beautiful oak tree with an arbor decorated with the prettiest roses and greenery. While guests waited an acoustic guitar played in the background.

FROM THE BRIDE:

As like many little girls, I had been dreaming of what my wedding day would look like since I can remember. I had always envisioned something romantic yet organic and understated. When my husband stumbled upon Quail Ranch, we immediately fell in love and I knew it would be the perfect setting for our wedding. There is something about Quail Ranch that transforms you to a different time and space. The avocado orchard, majestic oak trees and stunning historic property make for the perfect California backdrop. The property itself is so breathtaking that we just accentuated what was already there with vintage-inspired furniture, muted textiles and lots of romantic florals.
By far the biggest choice I made was the decision to wear a pink wedding dress. As soon as I saw the Hayley Paige gown, I knew I had to track it down and it had to be mine. I should also mention that it was nothing that I ever imagined I would ever wear on my wedding day. I always thought I’d choose an understated lace sheath dress, and instead I went for a completely pink tulle ballgown with sequins and a plunging neckline. Initially, I was worried I may have made the wrong decision, but aside from marrying my husband, my wedding dress was my favorite part of the entire day. Having a pink wedding dress did present a challenge when choosing bridesmaids dresses. It took me months to decide upon the three different colors for my girls. I knew I wanted a range of shades and finally landed on stone, ivory and taupe. I had to pick from small swatches, so I crossed my fingers everything would look alright together, and it ended up looking better than I could have hoped. All of the groomsmen and my bridesman wore classic black tuxedos, and overall the evening felt, what I’m calling, quintessential California cool. Sticking with the Spanish influence of Quail Ranch, we had an acoustic guitar player play during the ceremony as well as cocktail hour on the front lawn, while guests sipped on Moscow Mules and Old Fashioneds. The evening continued to the backyard for dinner, dancing and more many more cocktails! One of my favorite parts of the party was the Vintage VW photo booth bus we rented from 805 Camera Bus. The bus was a bit of a splurge, but it fit perfectly with our California evening and was a huge hit.

From our very personal ceremony officiated by a dear family friend, to the awesome best man and maid of honor speeches and all the love that surrounded us that day, I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding. It was everything we wanted it to be – elegant and sophisticated, yet personal and relaxed. While everything came together in the end, I couldn’t have done it without my incredible vendors. My wedding planner, Katie, was a total angel and we had the best time with my glam squad, Cheek to Cheek Artistry. There wasn’t a single thing I’d change – the flowers, the food, our amazing photographer and videographers – everyone was a dream and helped us have the best day we could have asked for.
