Cady + Page’s stunning Saddlerock Ranch is oh-so quintessentially California. We adore their palette of beautiful muted, neutral shades (including taupe, blush and pastel peach) and that they included inspiring elements reflecting the Malibu vineyard region and their own fun + lighthearted personalities.
Cady shares, We chose one of our favorite places, and one of the most beautiful locations we know, for the ceremony and reception. We really wanted the wedding to be simple, classic and timeless and the setting really enabled us to do that by picking minimal decor and letting the venue set the tone.
With a handful of some of SoCal’s best vendors on board – Sweet Emilia Jane, The Little Branch + J Wiley Photography – it’s no surprise that their wedding turned out so beautifully. The perfect way to sail into the weekend, we think…
One of our personal fave details from the day was Cady’s amazing two-piece dress by Carol Hannah. Many more photos of that beauty to come…
Although there was no official wedding party, many of Cady’s friends chose to wear muted pastel dresses and served as her “unofficial” bridesmaids. Love it!
The whole day was pretty spectacular and its hard to pick just ONE moment. All the minutes we were able to steal alone were amazing, but also every moment on the dance floor with our family and friends. Walking back up the aisle after the ceremony was pretty surreal and special. The ceremony itself was incredibly meaningful to both of us because our Aunt (Episcopalian minister) and Uncle (English Teacher) conducted it. We worked closely with them on the readings and flow, but it meant so much more to become officially married by two people we love so much.
Processional: Ode to Joy – Beethoven
Recessional: Sweet Soul Music – Arthur Conley
First Dance: Fire – Bruce Springsteen
There were lots of super pretty touches of gold infused into the reception setting, as well as tiny golden dinosaur figurines hidden throughout for a whimsical touch!
C + P handmade individual placecards with each guest’s name from old end-posts from Cady’s father’s vineyard in Sonoma. The perfect DIY project and personal touch!
Hire someone to manage the day-of so that you can enjoy everything and worry about nothing! Relax. Don't worry about the small stuff because no one is going to remember if the napkins didn't match the tablecloths. Spend your time focusing on the things that will make the experience itself amazing. For us, that was the band and the booze. Our band (The Class) was spectacular and learned our first dance song and our Bartender (Red Clay Industries) mixed custom cocktails that we were able to name ourselves - we named all of our drinks after Keanu Reeves movies, because his laid-back, care-free attitude is exactly how we wanted our day to feel.
