La Cuesta Ranch Natural Summer Wedding | Kate + Jake

Oh, this wedding celebration for Kate and Jake at La Cuesta Ranch was good for the soul. It reminded me of exactly why I love documenting couples. Their wedding was intentional, fun, and a big ol’ party!!

When I asked these two how they wanted their wedding celebrated, this was their response.

We want our wedding day to be a celebration of our love but in addition to that, it is also very important to us that our wedding feels like a celebration of ALL the love in our life – our family and friends. We love the natural and simple things in life, so we have tried to make our special day feel like a reflection of that – lots of greenery, family-styled bbq, live music, an ice cream truck, etc. Most of our energy has gone towards planning the details that we feel will truly make our day and our guest’s day as special as possible!

And they nailed that vision indeed!! I loved the use of warm colors, greenery, and dried florals to create this summer palette.

Kate and Jake light up a room when they walk in. And will have you laughing to the point of tears in no time at all. Some of my favorite moments from the day were: their first look and their vows to each other. Then their entire bridal party was tearing up during the ceremony. So sweet! And then we finished the night with a mini concert by Moonshiner Collective. I even got asked to dance by grandpa and couldn’t say no. See for yourself with some of the highlights below.
