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…
Major ring envy! What a beauty.
And we’re all about Megan’s incredible peony-filled bouquet by Shotgun Floral Studio!
M + E’s programs (also designed by Shotgun Floral) we’re fashioned as paper airplanes so guests could throw them during the recessional. Um, SO fun!
Processional: Pachelbel's Canon in D
Recessional: Crazy Little Thing Called Love – Queen
First Dance: Today – Joshua Radin
Guys, we’re totally on the Moscow Mule bandwagon! Yum. And this Friday we’ll be sharing a recipe so you can make this popular drink yourselves, so be sure not to miss that! :)
We adore that Megan wore comfy Tom’s wedges for her big day! And, of course, we’re totally digging the rest of the colorful apparel + the whimsical decor from this wedding, too! Shop with us below for fun finds for your wedding or any party!
We’re so in love with those colorful arrangements + the sweet reception table details.
Hire a planner! There are so many decisions to be made, vendors to align, and schedules to coordinate. Your day will come fast, and you'll be so thankful to have someone else there to manage the details so you can enjoy the amazing weekend with loved ones.
