Intimate Ranch Wedding: Faye and Josh Part 2

What would make an elopement even more fun? Bringing along a few friends and family to enjoy it with! Most people would just call that a short-notice small wedding, and that’s exactly what Faye and Josh set out to do!

Their wedding at Flying Caballos Ranch in San Luis Obispo is a beautiful example of how to have a simple, unfussy rustic wedding and let your venue do all the work!

San Luis Obispo venue The “lighthouse tower” at Caballos Ranch has a full master suite at the top, with beautiful views of the surrounding hills. The boys used it as their “getting ready room”. jewish ceremony The ceremony space took full advantage of the beautiful vistas that surround the ranch. The rolling hills and sprawling greenery don’t need much ornamentation. Their handmade chuppah reflects the simplicity of their ceremony spot. bride and groom walking to the altar Faye and Josh walk down the aisle together, hand-in-hand. Because the signing of the Ketubah is the Jewish version of the marriage contract, they are technically already married. jewish family wedding ceremonyFaye’s two children are an adorable addition to the wedding ceremony.
