Breean and Matt met through their parents when they were both small children. Their families attended the same church and though the two often saw each other in passing, they didn’t have much of a friendship until they grew up. After college Matt began work at the church where Breean was a volunteer. The two became great friends and their love grew from a foundation of friendship. They say their match was “made in heaven”. So, the heavenly Hold Out Ranch in Santa Clarita, CA was the perfect choice for their vintage-inspired rustic wedding. They held their ceremony on an expansive lawn, adjacent to the ranch’s idyllic main house. Their guests were seated on hay bales as they witnessed the joy of this adorable couple finally exchanging their vows and becoming husband and wife. At the ceremony’s entrance, photos of Breean and Matt were displayed in vintage frames that hung on a wooden pallet and a large arrangement of wildflowers set the tone for the day’s charming rustic decor.
Breean was glowing in her lace gown with its delicate cap sleeves and sweep train. Finishing her look with a fingertip veil and sparkling stud earrings gave her a timeless, classic style. Her bridesmaids had fun with fashion. Wearing their own choice of dress in shades of blush and pink, each lady got to express herself and highlight her individual beauty. They all carried stunning bouquets of pink, white and peach roses, wildflowers and baby’s breath with lush accents of greenery. Matt and his groomsmen were dapper in three-piece gray suits. Matt’s tie was white, his guys wore gray for a modern mono-chromatic look.
Under the reception tent, long tables were set with white linens and burlap runners. Arrangements of roses and wildflowers in Ball jars and bread baskets lined with vintage napkins completed the charming tablescapes. Rustic and vintage touches could be found throughout the space, from antique doors and wooden signage to crystal chandeliers and the heirloom quilt that adorned Breean and Matt’s sweetheart table. After a delicious BBQ dinner, the party moved to an outdoor dance floor. The newlyweds shared their first dance as husband and wife under the glow of dozens of strung Edison lights before they cut their “naked” cake. As the sun set, the happy couple enjoyed an evening of celebration with the friends and family who had traveled to share their amazing day with them. Congratulations Breean and Matt!
