Real Wedding: Casual & Cool California Ranch Wedding

Recent rains left the pasture grasses lush and green at the Beltane Ranch, but don’t let that fool you – Yasuko & Daniel’s outdoor, December wedding day was anything but warm! It may not have been frosty or snowy out, but Cathy, of Cathy Stancil Photography, was convinced her fingers were just frozen around the camera. Even with her lovely fur, Yasuko was undoubtedly cold, but you’d never know it from the gorgeous photos. Following their sweet, intimate ceremony, Yasuko & Daniel followed Cathy around the ranch, posing in various rustic locations all over the property. There may not have been many human guests, but the newlywed couple had a captive audience in the bovine residents. One cow in particular was mighty interested in the bride’s pretty, pink bouquet – too interested in my opinion! The flowers survived that adventure, for some further fun photos by Cathy Stencil Photography. The enthusiastic couple was able to run back to the barn, down a quaint dirt road, due to the bride’s casual footwear – black and white Chuck Taylors! This was such a sweet day, with some naturally gorgeous photos coming out of the big day.
