Gorgeous Leo Carrillo Historical Ranch Wedding

Friday May first was the official kick off to the wedding season (even though in Southern California you really can get married all year round!). I was lucky enough to spend it at the beautiful Leo Carrillo Historic Ranch in Carlsbad surrounded by love and happiness. Vanessa and Don sure did pick a perfect location to tie the knot. The ranch is absolutely stunning, there are hills, gorgeous flowers everywhere, colorful wildlife, and small quaint buildings throughout the grounds. I am so excited to share some photos of their big day because the ranch is a great backdrop for wedding photos, I was in love!

Aside from the scenery, what really made this day special was Vanessa and Don. They are not only head over heels for each other, but they really just wanted to have a fun, special day. Vanessa could not stop smiling, from walking up to the venue to dancing at the reception I don't think her glow ever diminished. Vanessa is from Germany, and left everything to come here to Southern California to be with Don. . .how romantic! Their connection is so real and authentic that it made my job way too easy. I loved capturing sweet moments throughout the day at the ranch. 

Congratulations Vanessa & Don!
