Santa Margarita Ranch Wedding: Kaitlin + Jason

bride and groom

Kaitlin + Jason were married on Cinco de Mayo. They wanted their wedding to be unique + fun – and to them that equals a colorful party which is exactly how their wedding turned out! With the gorgeous Santa Margarita Ranch as the venue, they were able to have a lovely outdoor ceremony, a train ride around the ranch after the wedding, a game of flip cup to start off the reception and then dance the night away in the pretty barn. Definitely a wedding I’d love to be a guest at. :) Big congrats to Kaitlin + Jason and thanks to Jake and Necia Photography for the photos!

We did our grand entrance into the barn to the song “Home” by Edward Sharp. Each bridal party couple did their own little dance, and we were last. Once we were all on the dance floor, energy high, everyone smiling, the song faded and “Blow the Whistle” by Too Short started playing. Our pastor then ran into the barn with a referee shirt on blowing a whistle. He explained to everyone that a big part of our memories over the years involved a little game called “Flip Cup” (we met in college.) He then explained that we (the bride and groom) thought that there would be no better way to begin our marriage than to play a little game of bridesmaids vs. groomsmen flip cup to see who was “really” in charge of our marriage. The girls won in a landslide.

Don’t listen to the haters. There were times throughout the wedding planning process that people made me feel like my ideas were crazy. And guess what – Tapatio bottle favors with our heads on them and a Taco Bell delivery at the end of the night were some of our guest’s favorite aspects of our wedding. Listen to your gut, and do everything possible to make the day represent your personality as a couple. Those are the memories that people take with them from weddings. Oh and try not to cry from the stress too often, but understand that it will happen from time to time and that’s totally NORMAL!

  27. Hot sauce and lollipops! Love it all!

  28. What a fun & fab wedding! I’m obsessed!! And flip cup!? I wish I had been a bridesmaid :)

  29. Wow. I love how personal your wedding looks. I am trying to work as many personal things into ours as much as I can. Hard on a budget. Hardest part is finding such a cute unique ceremony/reception location. At least for me.

    • Agreed! My advice would be to try and think of random things that you are and your fiance love. Then try and think of any way you can incorporate those things. That’s what people always remember! And good luck with the location – it’s all down hill once you find it!

      • Hi Kaitlin! LOVE your wedding pictures, everything looks wonderful!

        Where did you get your shoes, and specially the shoes decorations? are they shoe clips?

        Thank you!
