Jennifer + Matt | Calamigos Ranch

Jennifer is one unforgettable woman.  From the moment I heard her voice, I knew we were going to be styling her wedding together.  After meeting her mom and then future mother-in-law over lunch, I was hooked. 

Calamigos Ranch, for those who do not know, is an all inclusive venue.  Meaning they provide chairs {ceremony & reception}, tables, standard linens, settings, food, beverage, and service.  What they do not have, which is most of its kind, is the entertainment {City Connection}, dessert {personal friend}, flowers {The Little Branch}, photography, {Michael and Anna Costa Photography}, videography {Matt Forrey Films} and myself.  Working with Jennifer to book those vendors was an adventure to say the least. 

We had many outings for specialty linens {La Tavola Linen}, florist consultations, libations and the Rose Bowl Flea Market for design pieces.  Some of the items were crafted by her family and herself.  The impressive marque letters she personally built in a welding class and the table numbers were hand made by the father of the bride from a tree in their backyard.  The result is a gorgeous representation of her inspiring mind and appreciation for the color thistle.
