Rachel and David Wedding at  Paramount Ranch

Our bride had the advantage of working on many weddings for renowned wedding photographer, Susan Bordelon.

Rachel came to us with a clear idea of what she wanted, and let us run with it.  Rachel requested a color scheme of matte grey, white and deep red with a yellow accent.

The bride carried white peonies, Blushing Bride Protea, rock quartz crystals and for the first time ever, spiraling silver grey leaves of the Tillansia xerographica.

Owning a lapidary business in Minnesota, Rachel’s Parents sent her the rock quartz crystal, Hematite and Jasper  stones used in the wedding. When I saw the metallic pewter color Hematite, I knew that we would have fun creating bouquets out of succulents, berries and stones.

The ceremony took place under the shade of a giant Coast Live Oak at the Paramount Ranch.

This location has hosted a veritable who’s who of Hollywood including director Cecil B. Demille and actors Bob Hope, Gary Cooper and Claudette Colbert.   From 1992 to 1997, Paramount Ranch was used as the setting for the television show, Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman.

Everywhere you looked, the surroundings made you believe that you stepped into a western film.  Escort cards were displayed in front of the saloon windows.
