Coastal California Wedding with a Rustic Country Twist

San Luis Obispo Barn Wedding

Imagine all the vibes of coastal California, mixed with sweet + rustic country styling, plus ton of florals, and accents of blue hues. Are you picturing that? Well, my friends, that’s exactly the vision that Amy + Tim had for their wedding at Green Gate Ranch in San Luis Obispo. Taking place in August, these two wanted to mix the romantic feelings of the countryside with coastal freshness.

The bridesmaids wore blue hues, reminiscent of the seaside, and the shades of blue were carried through to patterned table runners on the rustic dining tables. Prepare to swept up in all the details that Jen Rodriguez Photography captured!

For the florals, Noonan’s Wine Country Designs crafted an array of summery sunset colors. SO stunning with those dahlias + ranunculus!

Isn’t this barn setting INCREDIBLE?! Light sparkled all throughout dinner and made the perfect atmosphere for the celebration. Tables were lined with pampas grass and touches of greenery + gold.

Say hello this this bureau of sweets: strawberry topped cupcakes, white cake pops, and pink squares of goodness. In addition to these darling delights, Negranti Creamery’s ice cream truck served salted brown sugar & whiskey in waffle cones throughout the evening.
