Rustic Wedding at Holman Ranch: Lauren + Patrick

Carmel Wedding

Today’s wedding is one of those weddings that gives a rustic design scheme a really good name. Lauren + Patrick are a laid-back duo who wanted their celebration to reflect that about them They tell us, We are both simple people who really just wanted everyone to be comfortable and have a great time. We really wanted to have a laid back feel so that our friends from different chapters of our lives could get to know one another.

So, they teamed up with Engaged & Inspired and Mandolin Flowers to bring their ideal, no-fuss environment to life. There are lots of pretty details ahead, but our favorite has got to be the unique spirea-lined aisle – just wait until you see it! Thanks so much to Danielle Poff Photography for capturing it all so beautifully!

Our Favorite Memory From The Wedding

The most memorable moment of our wedding day was being able to share our day with family, who traveled fa to be there to celebrate with us. Recently, some parents and grandparents have become very ill so this day was one that we thought was not going to come together with everyone, but it did!
