Set at the beautiful Oak Haven Estate in Fillmore, CA, Ryanne and Will’s memorable day was intimately and genuinely spent with close friends and loved ones in country rustic style. Fillmore, CA is one of the few remaining southern Californian towns still laden with rich orange groves, so I was totally excited to shoot at this gem of a venue.
I love that my couples tend to go for what is elegant yet true time and time again. In Ryanne’s case, she wanted something elegant yet true to her small town roots. Ryanne wanted the wedding to be laid back, yet full of meaning, while keeping vendors local to the community. For her and William, it was about celebrating this exciting day of their lives with those who were closest to them. They didn’t want anything that wouldn’t be sincere. Cowboy boots, jeans, cowboy hats and do-it-yourself details were common motifs throughout the day. Not only that but Ryanne and Will’s hearts were so completely warmed by the company they kept and the happiness they shared with those closest to them that day. From the homemade jam wedding favors to the hand lined envelopes, to the full moon night, and the sweet celebration of these love-birds, this wedding was not one you would want to miss!
A huge thank you to my good friend and second shooter, Christina, for being my talented sidekick the entire day and helping me kick butt at this wedding!
