Wedding Reception Bliss…
We made it you guys! Drew and I became Mr & Mrs on November 4, 2018. Our wedding ceremony was beautiful and emotional, we were surrounded by the love of our friends and family and of course nature which is exactly what we wanted. Read all about how we said: “I Do in Orcutt Ranch here.” You can also read our engagement story here.
After the ceremony, all the nerves were gone and it was time to party! The celebration of love continued at our wedding reception that also took place in Orcutt Ranch. We had a perfect first dance, amazing speeches by our guests of honor, a delicious wedding cake and very special performance by Drew Anthuny himself. (cue the tears) Keep scrolling to read all about it. And of course, see all our amazing photos captured by @LizztinPhoto
Our Sweet Heart Table
Drew and I visited about 10 wedding venues when we were looking for ours but none of them seem quite right. However the moment we walked into Orcutt Ranch we instantly knew that this was the place we wanted to get married in. It had the perfect ceremony and reception space with lots of natural beauty, trees, and greenery surrounding every bit of us.
‘Love is Sweet’
Seriously, A Sweet Design has the best chocolate fudge wedding cake ever!!
Fun Fact about our wedding venue. For those who saw and loved La La Land as much as we did. The final fantasy montage of Mia’s new home was filmed here in Orcutt Ranch. (insert jaw dropped emoji..lol) Seriously how cool? We didn’t know until after we booked the venue, so we totally geeked out over it.
Laughter is the best medicine. So cheers to making each other laugh until forever.
Cheers to love, family and friends!
This was absolutely one of my favorite moments. Just thinking about it right now makes me all teary eyed. Drew wrote a song about how we first met and it’s honestly the sweetest and most romantic thing I’ve ever been gifted. It was one of those moments when the whole world disappeared and it was just me and him. By the end of the song, we were both in tears. And when the world reappeared again I noticed that everyone else was in tears too.
“though I only met you once, I don’t even know your name but something tells me we’re supposed to be…” The song is called ‘Came Here For’ and I can’t wait for you guys to hear it. It’s seriously such a beautiful song! And Drew is releasing it as part of his new EP ‘Color Saint Ocean’ available later this month.
One of our favorite things to do that we don’t get to do very often is dancing. So when it came to our wedding reception we knew we wanted to create the space and time for a lot of dancing to happen. So I’m happy that everyone had a great time getting down to the sounds of DJ-Lenny G.
Even though we had a day wedding on the start of daylight savings time (meaning the sun started to go down around 4pm) We all had so much fun and danced the day away like it was evening party hours.
Thank you to all our friends and family for making this day super special for us. This wedding wouldn’t have been the same without each and every one of you. Rest assured the memories created will last a lifetime. Drew and I love you all so much!
I wanted to release our wedding video in this post but there’s been an unexpected delay. So we’re not sure when it will be ready to share but hopefully soon so stay tuned.
