A golden California fall wedding full of pumpkins, soft pinks and coppers, and an incredible couple at the chic and charming Paicines Ranch, how did I get so lucky!? Tiffany and Alex met each other in high school but waited until after to start their chapter together. And over a decade later in 2021 on a sunny, autumn day, they took step together on a new chapter.
Tiffany fit the “bride-chilla” description down to the pockets on her beautiful wedding dress. Full of smiles and decked with sparkly flats, she was ready to walk down the aisle to Alex. As Tiffany’s father walked her down, Alex’s face glowed with an ear-to-ear smile.
After a fun group photo and our family formals, we whisked them away for a sunset stroll and jaw-dropping golden fall photos tucked in the oaks and willows near the Paicines Ranch headquarters.
The reception followed in the event barn with a delicious spread of pumpkin soup served in pumpkins to corn raviolis to braised short ribs by Chef Carlos, the ranch’s own in-house catering. After dinner, the lights were dimmed, and we watched a slideshow of the lives of Tiffany and Alex – what a beautiful idea for a wedding reception!
The night ended with a final dance where Tiffany and Alex danced together while everyone held hands and circled around them. They were literally surrounded love all the love! It was truly an honor to capture their wedding day, thank you you two!
Tiffany + Alex’s Review:
“Alicia is an amazing photographer and person! She has such a great personality, she makes you feel so loved on your special day. And then we got our photos, I am still amazed at how beautiful they came out. I don’t have the wall space in my how to hang them all, but they are all so beautiful, I want too. Even the photos of the venue look magical. Thank you so very much Alicia.”
