This wedding was unlike any other because the main goal of the entire night was not the ceremony, or the food, or the timeline, but instead, the main focus of the night was dancing!! While all of the other aspects fo the wedding were important, Rebeca, Gavin, and their friends and family were itching to get down on the dance floor! To make the night even more special, we had a phenomenal DJ, Brad, who kept the party bouncing off the stall doors, as the newlywed's crew danced the night away in JBL Home Ranch's restored hay barn.
Fate is a strong word that gets thrown around a lot, but for Rebeca and Gavin, it really was meant to be! Rebeca bumped into Gavin at a neighborhood bar in Davis, and while she had no intentions of meeting a guy, and she definitely didn't expect to fall in love, as people always say, when you know you know! Rebeca and Gavin soon moved up north to Washington, but knew that they wanted to get married back in the Bay Area where they knew they would be surrounded by family and friends! JBL Home Ranch was the perfect venue that was able to accommodate all of their major requirements, which all revolved around family and friends!
JBL Home Ranch is a stunning venue nestled between the golden rolling hills in the Bay Area. Anne Branagh, one of the owners of the home ranch, has a great eye for detail, and has set the venue up to flow through your wedding day with ease. From the dance floor in the middle of the restored haybarn, to the field looking out on the horse pastures, to the horses running behind your ceremony as you share your first kiss as husband and wife, to the landscaping with flowers and trees that Anne personally took the time to pick out. The coolest part about JBL Home Ranch is that it is a working ranch. If you look out on the hills, you will see cattle scattered through the grass and oak trees. There are also horses and ponies that love to say hello and give you a little lick and a kiss! Anne and her team work so hard to keep the ranch in tip top wedding venue shape, and it definitely shows!
Rebeca and Gavin, thank you so much for choosing me to be apart of your wedding day! Your vows had the crowd laughing, while also showing your love for one another! Rebeca, you were a beautiful bride, with special touches throughout your wedding day! My favorite moment was watching the look that you share with your father...I have the same look with mine, and I can definitely tell that you have a special father daughter bond! Gavin, being a guy, and being friends with the photographer is not always the easiest feat. However, you knocked it out of the park! Thank you so much for being go with the flow, up for any direction I threw your way, and most importantly, waiting a couple extra minutes before eating so we could take some killer shots when the lighting was oh so dreamy! I am so excited to share your blog post, and I cannot wait to hear about your honeymoon to Hawaii! Congratulations to the two of you!
