This couple started out as friends, and eventually realized they were perfect for each other. They chose the scenic Leo Carrillo Ranch for their vows and loved that ranch has 40+ peacocks that roam the property freely. The couple strove to incorporate as many personal details as possible, especially in remembrance of the bride’s grandparents. The bride wore her grandmother’s necklace and used her communion goblets as part of their ceremony. Instead of a traditional sit-down dinner, the couple opted for a cocktail style reception, with lounge vignettes from Archive Vintage Rentals. The couple have a great love of dessert and  Sweet & Saucy created a decadent dessert buffet with a traditional wedding cake mixed with mini desserts and donuts from their favorite local shop. You can see more of this wedding on Style Me Pretty.
