Rancho Valencia Wedding | Dan and Jen
A magical ceremony dripping in romantic florals and covered in twinkling lights… followed by the most rockin’ New Year’s Eve dance party ever?!
Oh yes, that’s the type of party a Youngren loooooves. #signmeup
We’ve been eagerly anticipating Dan and Jen’s New Year’s Eve wedding at Rancho Valencia for a while, and it did NOT disappoint.
Their black-tie occasion was indicative of the type of hosts they truly are – we saw from early on at their at-home engagement session that they simply love to host parties for their friends, so this… this was the ULTIMATE party for their favorite people!
Every inch of Dan and Jen’s wedding day was perfectly elegant, from Jen’s beautiful winter bridal look, to their guests’ classy attire!
This New Year’s Eve wedding came together flawlessly with the artistic vision of Susanne Duffy of Crown Weddings & Events – Jeff and I just adore her! Any wedding designed by Susanne is full of elegance, romance, and a touch of magic, and Dan and Jen’s wedding was no different.
And their dream-team of wedding vendors brought this vision to life so perfectly! Bethany of Splendid Sentiments adorned each surface with lovely blooms, Michele Coulon of Dessertier whipped up the most fantastical desserts, and their band, Republic of Music, brought down the house with the dance party of Dan and Jen’s dreaaaaams!
Seriously, it was SO. MUCH. FUN.

I couldn’t have imagined a more epic way to ring in the new decade! Enjoy this most elegant wedding, my friends!
Dan and Jen: We are so thankful for you two! You have such generous hearts and it’s obvious how much you are loved by your friends and family. We had the BEST time at your wedding! Sending lots of love!
