Patrick simply can’t believe that a girl as kind, generous, and loving as Kelsey would marry him. She’s strong, beautiful, and thoughtful with a hilarious sense of humor. What Patrick doesn’t realize, though, is that Kelsey feels the same way. She can’t believe that someone as funny, creative, and compassionate as Patrick would marry her. He’s sensitive, caring, and upbeat with a witty outlook on life.
And that’s such a wonderful place to be – to feel endlessly lucky when you look into the eyes of the person you’re spending your life with. To joyfully wonder how you managed to win such a perfect prize. To always feel like life has given you the most perfect gift that you could ever possibly receive. And I think that everyone around Patrick and Kelsey would agree that when they are together, they have both won the best lottery that there is in life – the lottery of the heart.
Both LA natives, Patrick and Kelsey have always loved the central coast here in California, and the minute they drove up the long meandering drive to the Santa Margarita Ranch outside of San Luis Obispo, they knew they had found the perfect venue for their wedding. This magical location has everything you could possibly want in a ranch wedding – golden fields of towering oak trees, a ceremony lawn dotted with wine barrels, a stunning view of rolling mountains, and a picturesque rustic barn with beams of light streaming through the rafters for the reception. It was a dreamy day for everybody involved – particularly Jeff and me who had to repeatedly calm ourselves down from the excitement of photographing such a beautiful place!
Let’s begin Patrick and Kelsey’s day with the ladies helping Kelsey into her dress.
There’s oh-so-much more to come from Patrick and Kelsey’s wedding at Santa Margarita Ranch, including all of the delightful reception details plus the stunning views of the ranch at sunset. It will all be posted tomorrow, so we’ll see you then!
