Jessica & Steven’s Paso Robles Ranch Wedding

I don’t even know how to start writing about this wedding, it was just such a special one for me. I have known Jessica for about fourteen years, ever since she became best friends with my childhood bestie in high school. Then we went to college together, were co-maids of honor at our bestie’s wedding, and have just shared a lot of really really good times. So I was incredibly thrilled when Jess asked us to be her photographers, and I couldn’t wait to be such a special part of her big day! The wedding was spectacular…each and every detail was done by the couple themselves, from spray painting everything gold to making the giant piñatas to handcrafting all of the signage. EVERYTHING. Then there was the tequila bar which, let’s face it, is the best idea ever created ever, and custom craft brews from Ambitious Ales to celebrate Jessica and Steven’s love for beer. And the venue was gorgeous! Located in the hills of Paso Robles, Rancho Dos Amantes is actually run by the bride and her family, and it is the perfect place to tie the knot (it’s also a farm stay-style bed and breakfast!). They even have a few little casitas to rent out on the property, which is the perfect retreat for the bridal party to crash in after a night of tequila shots! Seriously just looking at these photos makes me weepy, the love that Jess and Steven have for each other is so clear and strong, the vows were some of the most romantic I’ve ever heard, and my favorite part was during their first dance they just looked at each other, looked around, and realized how momentous this occasion was and got teary-eyed. I truly have so much love for these two and I know they will have an amazing time being married to one another. xo
