Imagine being married on a beautiful seaside ranch. That was the setting for Tara and Nick. Married on the shore of the Pacific Ocean, the wedding was an intimate event with close family and the wedding party. Surrounding Hearst Castle, the venue was perfectly romantic and swoon-worthy.
The ceremony was just the wedding party and close family, followed by the reception with friends. A beautiful building with an all-white interior and barn-like doors made the perfect backdrop for the ceremony. Bright floral arrangements were the perfect pop of color in the neutral venue. The guests sat on simple benches, making for a quiet, beautiful ceremony that was close and intimate. Candles donned the aisles along with flower petals, setting a romantic, dreamy mood.
The bride’s dress was a beautiful, simple gown, with a sweetheart neckline and figure-hugging silhouette. The bride wore her hair down with a simple barrette adding a touch of sparkle to her look. Beautiful muted purple dresses added the perfect pop of color to the wedding from the bridesmaids. The groom and groomsmen wore light grey suits, adding to the sophisticated and intimate vibe of the wedding. The color palette was intimate and dreamy, making the perfect combination of neutrals and pops of color from the flower bouquets.
The couple was married by Nick’s best friend, with Tara’s two children walking her down the aisle. Following the wedding, the couple moved up to the mountainside to take incredible pictures and then have a bigger celebration with family and friends.
The day was full of romantic moments on the seaside. The opportunity to be married in an intimate setting, followed by a bigger celebration with friends, was perfect event for the couple. A dreamy day like this is picture-perfect, and one that created memories to celebrate a love that lasts a lifetime.
