Flying Caballos Ranch Wedding : Faye and Josh Part 1

Faye and Josh found a little slice of heaven when they held their wedding at Flying Caballos Ranch in San Luis Obispo, CA. If you haven’t been to the Central Coast of California, you’re missing out on the cutest beach towns, quiet rural landscapes, miles upon miles of rolling hills, and a rich history that began around the time Spanish missionaries were first colonizing California. Flying Caballos may be slightly inland from ocean views, but it embodies everything else the Central Coast has to offer. Owned by the infamous Madonna family, the ranch has been used as a working farm since the early 1900s, and is still used for horse and cattle grazing.

This adorable couple decided to have a “planned elopement” and gather a few family and friends for an informal jewish ceremony in this pastoral landscape, and we couldn’t have enjoyed it more! Faye’s children played a large part in the wedding, participating in the entire ceremony – even receiving their own “wedding jewelry” in the form of engraved necklaces!

The day is full of love, joy, and happiness – check out all the amazing moments!
