Dreamy Wedding Inspiration at Carmel Valley Ranch

Carmel Valley Ranch inspiration

Ok, be totally honest, have you ever seen a dreamier ceremony site than this? The creatives who put together this truly stunning editorial were inspired single handedly by the the breathtaking space they set out to style: the new ceremony site at Carmel Valley Ranch. With just one look at the location, we say – how could you not be?! The designer behind the setting, Christine Cater, tells us a little bit more about all the pretty:

Our sole purpose was to leave the audience feeling dreamy and wide-eyed. From the ombre flowers on the Art Deco-inspired aisle runner and the lace gown from Haute Bride, to the sweeping Carmel Valley views and the ranch’s galloping goats and horses, it was a day full of beauty in every single direction.

We think (and hope!) the look they created will be super popular for weddings to come. Imagine a summer celebration here! Carlie Statsky’s romantic photography style was a perfect fit for all the gorgeousness. We’re ready to be whisked away to beautiful Caramel. What about you?

Our team at Christine Cater created the ceremony space around a hand-painted aisle runner using ombre flowers in whites, pinks and plums that ended in a circular pampas grass altar surrounded by ghost chairs.
