Patrick and Kelsey’s wedding at Santa Margarita Ranch felt incredibly heartwarming to photograph because the venue itself is downright inviting. The historic ranch was a stopping point on the old El Camino Real, the road that connected all of California’s 21 missions, so the buildings simply embody history. It was the perfect place to celebrate a fun-loving and kind couple like Patrick and Kelsey, and their guests were blown away by the beautiful location surrounded by rolling hills. I love the old rustic barn in which the reception took place, complete with gorgeous stone walls, old rafters, and romantic string lighting to complete the atmosphere.
Patrick and Kelsey: You wouldn’t believe how honored we were to capture your special day! We have always deeply hoped – ever since we first met – that we would get to be a part of it, and we were stoked when you invited us in! It was even more magical than I thought it would be, and we are thrilled for you guys to begin your life together! Lots of love!
