Well if that green barn isn’t the cutest thing you’ll see all day, we don’t know what will be! Emily tells us she fell in love with their venue, McCormick Home Ranch in Camarillo, California, the same way she fell in love with her now-hubby, Jake – at first sight. (Aww!) The lush gardens + romantic-rustic feel gave off just the vibe these two wanted for their day and the already beautiful surroundings required very little extra decor – a major bonus! E + J brought in just enough design elements to give the space an intimate feel and the florals by Fleur de Rye were a perfect addition to the pretty setting. Emily says, I wanted the guests to feel our love for each other. I was all about making it personal.
Big thanks to Khristian Snyder for the gorgeous photos + congrats to the newlyweds on a beautiful day!
We’re crazy in love with the colorful pastel dresses Emily’s bridesmaids wore! They are wearing the Laura dress by Donna Morgan, but we pulled together all our current faves that fit with this look below:
Oh gosh how did you pick just one. The whole day was so magical but what was most memorable was our ceremony. From my dad walking me down the aisle, to my brother marrying us, and then reading our personal vows to each other. Everything was just so intimate and romantic. And of course that kiss. There is nothing like kissing your husband for the very first time. Months and Months go into planning a wedding and its a great feeling finally seeing your dream come together.
Such a gorgeous pair!

My advice to every bride is dance! Make time to dance with your groom and your guests, its your time to have some fun and celebrate with everyone that loves you two. Because the day comes and goes and you spend so many sleepless nights planning, it's time to relax and enjoy all your hard work. On that day nothing will matter but you walking down the isle to the man you are going to spend the rest of your life with, its about you two...so dance.
