Real Wedding: Kara + Seth’s Fall Barn Wedding

Photographer Ken Kienow sent me this perfect fall wedding. Kara + Seth put together an incredible barn wedding on a private ranch near Los Olivos – one barn for cocktail hour, the other for the reception. Their decorations were very true to the area – oak branches, pumpkins, sunflowers, pheasant feathers, etc. and the interior of the barn was just so awesome. Favors were small jars of honey from the ranch.

They were married in a small ceremony with just immediate family in a small grove of trees on Seth’s parents’ ranch, which was followed by a cocktail hour in one of the barns.

  5. Once again, absolutely gorgeous! I looooover her dress. Who makes it??

  6. I would love to have had a barn to get married in like this! Absolutely gorgeous!

  7. I am almost positive that her dress is Paloma Blanca. It's the same one I picked out, but mine has a sash in the back.

  8. Wow – every time I see fall rustic weddings like this it makes me reconsider my spring wedding date. I love everything about fall and am convinced I will end up making my wedding feel like it's fall. The way the barn is decorated is amazing.

  9. Wow that dress is AMAZING!

  10. Found the dress – It's Paloma Blanca style 4004!

  11. Without any doubt, every couple wants to make their wedding a memorable day and also wants to treasure it forever, which is viewed in photographs and videos. Therefore, the wedding venue should be beautiful and grand.
    Actually, its a little bit doubt in all the function due to the idea. Really mind blowing. I'll try to get the same look & feel in my wedding function.

  12. I would love to know what she used for the "arch" over the barn doors and how they created it! :)

  13. Hello~

    Does anyone know if this place has a website or contact number to speak to the vendor about renting this site for a wedding? Any additional, information would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks Again,

  14. The barn was a private ranch – the groom is the owner’s son. They aren’t renting it out, though I wish they would. It’s a gorgeous property. It was a special thing for their son’s wedding – sorry. :(
