The LA-based couple headed north to the rustic Greengate Ranch for a carnival-themed weekend where guests could stay on-site. "The whole venue, which included two gorgeously decorated homes... was ours from Thursday through Sunday," Rachel says.
Rachel and Andrew's lively red and white carnival theme played through their invitation suite, which implored guests to witness "the greatest love story on earth" with an admission ticket. Carnival games and a handcrafted kissing booth were some of the main attractions at the reception. 1/1/17

"This gorgeous vintage winery wedding shoot is a stunning nod to California’s other wine country! The elegant vineyards of Paso Robles and San Luis Obispo don’t get as much attention as the Napa Valley, but they’re just as gorgeous a destination for a chic winery wedding, as this amazing shoot from Mike Larson and LaFleur Weddings & Events can attest. The lovely Greengate Ranch & Vineyard set the scene for a dreamy antique inspired shoot in champagne and gold." 5/23/16

Through its vibrant colors, the beautiful blooms brought a lot of life to this gorgeous California wedding at the Greengate Ranch & Vineyard, which provided the perfect rustic backdrop for John and Margaux’s rustic fall wedding.

Jake and Necia captured every breathtaking moment, including the stunning autumn sunset, and through their photos we find rustic California wedding inspiration. Enjoy!"
"Lately, nontraditional wedding venues have become, well, traditional. And farm weddings seem to be leading the pack as even big names like Kate Bosworth opt for rural venues. It makes perfect sense: The country settings—the isolation, simplicity, and natural beauty—are the perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of busy everyday lives. “Embrace the nature and quality of the space and setting,...” 11/4/15

We wouldn’t throw the term ‘Vanity Fair inspired wedding’ around lightly, but Kimberly + Joshua’s edgy, not-so-traditional San Luis Obispo ranch wedding truly lives up to the rockstar description. Kimberly wore a stu-nning black wedding dress by Vera Wang, yet walked down the aisle to Billy Idol’s White Wedding. Talk about turning traditions upside down! ;) The day was filled with all the right elements: southern-inspired florals (think magnolias, oleanders, honey suckle + wisteria), Cajun eats, delish cocktails (blackberry juleps, corpse revivers,..." 7/3/15
