Rustic + Preppy NorCal Wedding: Megan + Evan

norcal wedding

Happy Monday, lovelies! The sun is shining and Megan + Evan’s bright + cheerful Dawn Ranch wedding, designed by Enjoy Events Co + captured by Christina McNeill, is suiting our chipper Monday moods just fine. These two didn’t want just your standard 8-hour wedding day; they were after a fun long weekend away with their family and best friends in beautiful California wine country. Their unforgettable 3-day retreat (where all their guests stayed in charming cabins on site) consisted of a Friday night rehearsal dinner “I Do BBQ” (an evening of burgers and s’mores around the fire pit), a gorgeously thoughtful + detailed wedding celebration (the main event, of course!), and a delicious farewell brunch + send-off. Sounds pretty perfect, right?

Megan is an interior designer, so the wedding design was a very important element to her + Evan. She tells us, The bright rustic flowers, handmade bow ties by the Evan’s mom, and colorful bridesmaids dresses were a tribute to our vibrant and playful love for one another and my passion for color. We think they nailed it. Let’s take a look…
