Spanish Oaks Ranch Wedding | Santa Margarita Wedding Planner

Ryan and Savannah’s Spanish Oaks Ranch wedding was the perfect way to kick off our 2017 wedding season! We had the pleasure of collaborating on the design with the lovely Nikki Caldwell of Fluidbloom Designs. The task at-hand: re-create a Zion sunset for the wedding theme, and incorporate some Navy traditions. You see, Ryan (a Navy pilot) and Savannah got engaged on a trip to Zion and just fell in love with the scenery.

From the table numbers, which represented things like “61 – miles that we’ve hiked in WA,” and “164 – stamps used to send letters and postcards,” to the custom bar and taps built for Ryan’s home brew to the helmet and stuffed animal that have brought them comfort through the years…we were honored to help tell their story and make their wedding dreams come true.
