La Cuesta Ranch | San Luis Obispo Wedding Planner | Gabe and Brenda

Gabe & Brenda-HilltopLongtime friends Gabe & Brenda Davis hired me after their wedding planner was unable to finish the planning and coordination due to a debilitating stroke. I quickly realized just how much needed to be done to bring Brenda’s awesome vision to fruition. With less than six weeks to go before the big day, vendors still had to be sourced, rentals needed to be booked, and a plan and timeline had to be created. So, I did what I do best…I got s**t done. The result was a gorgeous and whimsical woodland wedding with a down-home feel…and a few tequila shots with the mother-of-the-bride along the way. Once the hilltop ceremony and raging barn party wrapped, the younger guests retreated to the hillside for the after party and a group camp-out. It was one epic weekend and Gabe and Brenda could not have been happier!

This weekend, they celebrate their first anniversary! Happy Anniversary to this beautiful, adventurous couple!
