As I sit here and try to think of the perfect words to describe Jayme & Elizabeth's wedding, they just don’t come easy. Not because it wasn’t beautiful or heartfelt, but because it was so much more than that. You see, when we pulled up to Beltane Ranch we were greeted by a kind gentleman with only sweet words and compliments to give. Come to find out, it wasn’t just Elizabeth’s dad that was warm with welcoming us in, it was also everyone who was there to partake in the day.
Quite honestly, the weather couldn’t have been more perfect. Of course, it’s hard to disappoint folks from Illinois with Northern California weather.. It could have been storming and “cold,” and still had been beautiful to us. However, there surely was the furthest thing from even a cloud in the sky. In fact, the sun spilled like golden honey over the hills the entire day!
The peace that radiated throughout the day was infectious. There’s nothing better than working in a stress free environment, right? Now imagine that PLUS being in the comfort of a beautiful ranch perched up on a hill in Sonoma. I mean, seriously! There were blossoming trees surrounding the property filled with the sweet scent of persimmons. The olive orchard in the front helped to welcome us up the drive. It was breathtaking to see, and even more delightful to be a part of!
The entire day took place at Beltane Ranch. There really would never have been a need to go anywhere else! Both the ceremony and reception were carefully designed around beautiful Oak trees that were speckled throughout the property. The ceremony was beautifully written, and the vows made us teary eyed. The reception was full of some of the yummiest food you could find, including a wedding cake that Elizabeth made herself! (Did we mention she’s basically the best chef, ever??) It was perfection. To get a feel for yourself, check out the sweetest couple you’ll ever meet!
A huge thank you to the vendors that made this day unforgettable:
