Real Wedding: Rebecca + Jason’s Saddlerock Wedding

This lovely rustic wedding was sent to me from April and Lindsey of Sweet Monday Photography. It was held this past October at the stunning Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu, CA. A bit about the wedding, Rebecca & Jason collected favorite recipes from all of their friends & family and created a cookbook of all those recipes as their gift to their guests. Jason’s mom, Debbie, prepped all of the quilt squares (actually, circles) for guests to write on in lieu of a guestbook & she’ll be putting them all together to make the quilt after the wedding. Rebecca’s sister, Carrie, painted & stenciled all of the chalkboard signs. Rebecca collected all of the milk glass used to decorate the tables. Rebecca & Jason provided the orange napkins & embroidered table runners.
