Alicia and Roni / Oyster Ridge Barn, Santa Margarita Ranch

Sometimes you feel like you become part of the family while planning a couple’s wedding, but these girls definitely became part of our Central Coast House of Design family.

My favorite planning moments were watching these two interact: they both just wanted to make each other happy.

The brides live in Los Angeles but selected Oyster Ridge Barn at the Ancient Peaks Winery for their wedding weekend; halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco.

A family member who works in the wine industry introduced the whole family to their wine and it quickly became a favorite place for tastings. When they built Oyster Ridge Barn, the girls were one of the first to book the space.

The brides wanted a wedding weekend for everyone traveling in that showcased everything local. The wedding vibe was bohemian, minimalistic and natural. The brides wore beautiful, light flowing lace gowns and carried bouquets of local wildflowers.

The sweetest details were evident at every point of the day. Everything from the food and beverages to the flowers that were locally grown and organic.

Their First Look was amazing, we loved watching them as they interacted and spent time together.

The ceremony space was set with an entry table with light refreshments, kippot, and parasols were available for shade. A handcrafted chuppah of natural wood, lace, and wildflowers was set against the background of the vineyard and rolling hills.

The flower girls and two young men carrying a “Here Come The Brides” sign, led the way for the couple’s entrance.  Each of the brides walked down the aisle with their parents to the Beatles version of “All You Need is Love”.

A simple ceremony with family and friends reading the Seven Blessings, the brides exchanging rings and vows, was sealed with a kiss and both brides breaking a glass.
