Dena and Alan’s wedding at Flying Caballos Ranch in San Luis Obispo’s Edna Valley was a celebration like no other! The couple chose to use Earth tones as their color palette, which was highlighted by the florals provided by a friend of theirs. They exchanged their vows under a family Chuppah, with the names of all of the couples in the bride’s family who had previously been married underneath it! As the groom was a big fan of “The Hobbit,” the processional featured music from the soundtrack. And in a full-circle moment, their officiant was a dear friend who originally introduced them. How cute is that?!? Cocktail hour was in front of the barn, where the guests picked up their cassette tape place cards that included a link to Dena and Alan’s Spotify wedding playlist. And how can we forget how Hella Fitzgerald rocked the dance floor!
