Really, all you need for the perfect wedding is the one you love, and this couple kept that in mind when planning their simple and intimate wedding at San Ysidro Ranch. Says the bride: “After years of attending and performing music at weddings, we knew we just weren’t the traditional type. It took two and half years of planning and a recent visit to San Ysidro Ranch, to finally realize we had found the perfect venue. We decided that three important criteria were essential for a blissful wedding day: being present, not being overwhelmed by mass amounts of family and friends, and surrounding ourselves in a small cocoon of love and support. Ultimately, we decided to elope with a magic thirteen members of close friends and family – it truly was perfection.”

The couple met in a Piano Ensemble music class in college.

After their first look, says Lauren, “we chose not to see anyone until the ceremony and having that quiet time made the impact of seeing our guests for the first time was wonderful.”

From the bride: “It rained the entire day of our wedding. Words do not describe the experience of it. Hummingbirds, glistening flowers and the soft patter of rain enveloped our ceremony. All of our guests were asked lay down an olive branch along with a blessing for us in the place where we were to stand during our ceremony. The ceremony was held in the Old Adobe House and we both entered the room at the same time, as equals.”

“Our dinner was held at the Stonehouse at San Ysidro Ranch on one family-style table underneath an awning of lights. The flowers were probably one of my favorite parts of our wedding, and each guest received a small box of See’s candy, a family tradition. Before dinner, each one of our guests toasted us, which lasted close to an hour. It was a moment we will never forget. After the most delectable dinner and chocolate soufflés we stayed awake until the morning talking about our wonderful day and left the next day for our honeymoon in Tulum, Mexico.”

Why did you choose this location for your wedding? San Ysidro Ranch is the most beautiful venue in our opinion. The food, wine list and ambience is exquisite.

Is there a standout detail or any surprises from the day? We had no idea it would rain the entire day of our wedding, but it truly made everything feel that much more special. Everything was perfect, from the flowers to the photographer/makeup artist and we wouldn’t have had our wedding any other way.

Do you have any budget tips for other brides? Initially, we planned on renting the lavender field for our ceremony at SYR but decided to use the Old Adobe Room instead. The Old Adobe Room only cost $400 for six hours. A total steal!

Did you include any traditions in your wedding? We used olive branches as a unique symbol of blessing as we are not religious. Our guests bought us, “something blue” gifts and we spent the morning getting ready in separate locations which made the first look a beautiful moment.

San Ysidro Ranch Wedding by Elizabeth Messina Featured on Snippet & Ink!

Tiffany & Peter | Classic Garden Wedding at San Ysidro Ranch

If you loved Sharon and Adam’s wedding, then you’ll love today’s feature – another stunning celebration at San Ysidro Ranch, this one from my dear friend Elizabeth Messina. It’s also being featured in the latest issue of Magnolia Rouge, so be sure to check that out as well!

The bride wore a lace dress by Rivini that she found just a month before the wedding: “The dress was perfect – the problem?” she says. “The wedding was in one month and there was not enough time to order a dress! The stars were aligned for me that day – the sample was in perfect condition and only needed minor alterations.”

Mindy Rice designed all of the romantic floral decor. Says Tiffany, “I knew I wanted a soft and romantic ambience for the wedding and ceremony. Mindy Rice truly helped to make that vision come true through her floral and event design.”

This bride is a girl after my own heart – her favorite details from the day? “The cake! When I close my eyes, I can still taste the fresh berries and lemon! To be honest, my husband and I couldn’t wait the full year to eat the top layer of the cake. I think we ended up only waiting one day!”

You can see so much more from Tiffany and Peter’s gorgeous garden wedding in the gallery.

What could be better than a whimsical engagement session among the lavender fields of San Ysidro Ranch? As the bride says, “Having seen those gorgeous lavender fields time and time again, I knew I wanted to shoot there. It did not disappoint. San Ysidro Ranch has to be one of the most beautiful places on Earth!” We couldn’t agree more. This lovely pair enjoyed taking their beautiful engagement photos and then continued their celebration by driving up the California coast, visiting Monterey, Sonoma and San Francisco. A perfect day!
