If the magic between Chris and Ali could be bottled up, it would glow with love and joy, just as they do. To have been able to photograph this couples engagement session was an honor for us. The Greengate Ranch wedding venue was the perfect backdrop in this couples love filled session. From the rolling green hills and rows of vineyards, and framed by the most perfectly rustic barn accentuated with modern geometric details, Chris and Ali fit the scene in perfect elegance.
We are excited to be documenting Chris and Ali’s dreamy California wedding at this exact venue in the Fall of this year. As San Luis Obispo is home to many extraordinary wedding venues, Greengate Ranch is surely one of the most desirable locations on the Central Coast with the perfect mix of luxury, equestrian, and vineyard elements.
The Greengate Ranch wedding venue features a lovely variation of backgrounds including a nature soaked pond, functioning vineyards, and an array of ranch features including horse stables accentuated by the picturesque barn. The venue is located within the serene area of Edna Valley which boasts breathtaking views amid Irish green rolling foothills. We were able to capture the unique characteristics of the wedding venue as well as the luxury and classic details that echoed the couples style.
In addition to their love for eachother, Chris and Ali shared a love for their beloved dog. It was blissful to capture their portraits with the family member that loves unconditionally and gives wet kisses. We greatly enjoy being able to showcase these real moments to remind the couples of these simple yet substantial memories.
Chris and Ali’s lighthearted and refreshing personalities mirrored the atmosphere of the Greengate Ranch property so perfectly. The nature paved landscape accented with classic white fencing gives impressions of a timeless ranch with modern flare.
In terms of luxury and timeless features, the Greengate Ranch wedding venue is sure to deliver. All of the components of a classic and charming wedding are featured at this wedding venue in California. As the the rustling leaves sang a sweet melody of soft breezes, it was sublime to bask in the quiet and serene atmosphere.
We are very excited to be capturing Chris and Ali’s special day and we are delighted to be documenting such an occasion at the beautiful Greengate Ranch wedding venue.
