{Real Wedding} Melissa & Bryan: Rustic Fall Wedding at Camarillo Ranch

It’s officially fall!  And even though it still doesn’t feel like it here (did anyone watch the Emmy’s last night and see how hot it was for everyone?) I’m determined to get into the fall spirit, and this rustic ranch wedding is just the thing to start of this fall week!

We used dozens of old lace or embroidered table clothes that our grandmothers or aunts have had, to cover the hay bales that our guests sat on during the ceremony. It was a great way to include our extended family in our day. rustic fall wedding at camarillo ranch | photos by epic imagery

{Advice for planning couples}
Plan well ahead of time. It was important for my husband and I to really enjoy each aspect of our wedding day and we planned out how to do that with our talented photographer and our amazing wedding coordinator. rustic fall wedding at camarillo ranch | photos by epic imagery

Any special traditions?
My garter was a garter that is being passed down to every new bride in my husband’s family. It was originally my husband’s cousin’s garter, she passed it along to me and I will pass it on to the next bride. We have a box that each bride signs with her maiden name, wedding date and her new husband’s name. rustic fall wedding at camarillo ranch | photos by epic imagery

To make my wedding me, I stuck to my initial idea of how I envisioned my day and really ran with that. I wanted my day to have meaning to not only for me but for my guests too so that was all in the little details. 
 
I’m a big fan of the hay-bale seating in the round for the ceremony.  And the florals are perfection, don’t you think?  So many lovely details in this wedding!  Did it get you in the mood for fall?
Oh, and I just found out today that it is this couple’s one year wedding anniversary!  How crazy is it that I randomly featured their wedding on their anniversary without even knowing!?  Wish them a happy day!

    We had so much fun…I want to do it again. Loved seeing my amazingly beautiful daughter and son in law get married. All the details were perfect. Thank you Danny, Hallie, Amy and everyone who made this the most PERFECT day. Marie

  •  7 years and three babies ago we celebrated our one month wedding anniversary in Florence on our honeymoon. I miss having traveling adventures with you. We're on a different kind of adventure now (one with even better views but an even harder climb to the top) but someday we'll get to do this again. Side note: I also miss being this size, so I'll put that on the "hopefully someday" list too #goals #beforebabies #grainybutgood  Surprised this fella with a solo ice cream date after school today and it was good. The company and the ice cream.
     Can I please freeze time and keep him this sweet bonnet wearing, sling loving chubby baby forever? #allthefeels #themorebabiesyouhavethemorebabiesyouwant #quincyrhys  Cure for this heatwave? Slowly walking around in air conditioned Trader Joe's and buying all of the mini pumpkins  it worked for a little while.
