Meet Jenn and Ryan – the kind of couple who instantly become your best friends. When we first discussed their wedding plans, I knew they were going to be so special. Between the venue, vision, and team they put together, their Calamigos Ranch wedding was absolute perfection.
Calamigos Ranch | An Oasis in Malibu, California
Nestled within the picturesque Santa Monica Mountains, Calamigos Ranch stands as a stunning California wedding venue. Its 240-acres of woodlands house a rustic hotel, an oasis of beauty and tranquility. Here, rolling hills, meadows, small lakes, and a vineyard combine to form a backdrop that feels like a dream brought to life.
For Jenn and Ryan, this enchanting setting was the perfect stage for their love story to unfold. As the months of planning and preparation passed, my excitement grew in tandem with theirs, knowing that something extraordinary awaited us.
Jenn & Ryan’s Unforgettable Calamigos Ranch Wedding
Jenn began her wedding day prep surrounded by her closest friends in a beautiful room on the Calamigos Ranch property. Meanwhile, Ryan shared laughter and camaraderie with his groomsmen in the Poolhouse. As the hours melted away, anticipation built, leading us to the breathtaking vineyard space overlooking the ranch where the ceremony would take place.
Under the open skies and amidst the rolling hills, the ceremony unfolded – so tender and meaningful. There wasn’t a dry eye in sight, including my own, as the depth of Jenn & Ryan’s love touched the hearts of everyone present. Their capacity for love and the way they cared for each other and their loved ones shone through every detail.
Earth-angel Monica at Details Darling orchestrated a day that was nothing short of a fairytale. The table scapes were something out of my wildest dreams, perfectly complementing the natural beauty of the setting. The exquisite floral arrangements by Chelsea Floral added a touch of romance and elegance to the entire affair, making it a dream to capture. I always love working with these two, I just know there’s nothing to stress about because they are both so incredibly talented at everything they do. True professionals in every sense of the word.
An al fresco dinner followed, complete with wood-fired pizzas, flowing wine, and heartfelt speeches that brought laughter and tears alike. Jenn & Ryan’s love-filled celebration was a testament to the bond they share and the cherished connections they’ve built with those around them.
As the sun dipped below the horizon, casting a golden glow over the Malibu mountains, the magic of the evening was palpable. I felt so blessed to be a witness to such a genuine and heartwarming union of souls.
To Jenn & Ryan, your love is nothing short of poetry. This day was a celebration of love, laughter, and meaningful connections, and I will forever cherish the privilege of capturing these cherished moments. May your journey together be filled with more breathtaking sunsets, shared laughter, and love that continues to grow deeper with each passing day.
