they said I DO under a 1000-year-old tree

From Jenny Quicksall Photography “It was a romantic end of summer wedding at Highland Springs Ranch Resort in Cherry Valley, CA. The venue is like an oasis, a beautiful mirage in the middle of a desert town. Except this is no mirage, it is a gorgeous venue filled with lavender fields and olive trees!

Grace and Chris met on Coffee Meets Bagel and it was the beginning of a great love story…”

From Jenny Quicksall Photography – “Their wedding planner Charley King of Bluebell Events designed their wedding with a romantic rustic outdoor vibe in mind. She highlighted the venue’s beautiful spots for each part of the wedding day.

Guests were transported to the ceremony site, where they were greeted with refreshments as they took in the view of a 1000-year-old tree where Grace and Chris would later exchange their vows.

After the ceremony, guests were treated to celebratory beats of African drums and dancer. They followed these beats to the cocktail hour location amongst olive trees.”

“Market lights twinkled in the early evening sky between olive trees set just the right mood of romantic and rustic for their guests. While guests were enjoying cocktail hour, we took Grace and Chris into the lavender fields to take their romantic portraits.

Golden hour light poured across the fields as they embraced as husband and wife!”

“The reception took place under pine trees as guests danced, dined, and mingled among new and old friends. Market lights and small chandeliers gave it a romantic feel. The reception decor was kept true to the rustic and romantic vibe. Every other chair was adorned with lavender pashminas for the women guests as the nights get cold out in the desert. Grace and Chris made their way through their grand exit as guests lined each side of them with lights!”
