Romantic San Ysidro Ranch Wedding


SAN YSIDRO RANCH just outside of Santa Barbara looks like such a dreamy place to get married, and combined with the exquisite photography of CAROLINE TRAN, it was a no brainer to feature this wedding in MAGNOLIA ROUGE MAGAZINE. Those gardens, that light and Doris’s stunning gown… all so lovely!

Doris and Joe met rock climbing and bonded over their shared love of travel and extreme sports. When it came to the adventure of marriage, they wanted to start their lives together in an intimate celebration with just family and close friends, and chose the breathtaking San Ysidro Ranch for an elegantly rustic garden wedding, with a touch of vintage.

I always knew I wanted a wedding dress that was light and airy – preferably a combination of chiffon and lace. Something classic and romantic that would be beautiful for a garden wedding. I went to three bridal salons within a 48 hour period and found ‘the one’ at Jinza Couture Boutique. It was actually originally a very simple spaghetti strap dress, but Jinza had the same vision as I, and she practically created the dress from scratch for me.

Lace and Tulle Inspiration


I’m really not sure that any words I have can do the beauty of these images by BEN SASSO justice! I mean they’re utterly stunning! Love the texture and tones in them and the hair & make-up by RACHEL BURNEY is truly sublime! Inspired by lace and tulle (even Ben himself says that’s something a little odd to admit :-), it’s the contrast of it against the rugged landscape that I love.
