A Charming, Garden-Inspired Vineyard Wedding at Holman Ranch in Carmel Valley, California
This garden-inspired wedding, perched on top of a hill in the vineyards surrounded by rolling hills, will have anyone dreaming of romance. Jamie Raun (30 and a registered nurse) and Jeff Javed (30 and a physician) wanted to stay true to their outdoor-loving roots and had their wedding outside at Holman Ranch in Carmel Valley, California, decorated in a romantic color palette of blush, ivory, gold and gray accented with lace detail. “Jeff and I both love the beauty of the rolling green hills in Northern California, and this ranch/winery was the perfect setting for our intimate, romantic and fun wedding,” Jamie says. The ceremony took place on the green lawn of the venue, where Jamie and Jeff said their vows at the wooden arch embellished with a garland of pastel roses, arranged by Mandolin Flowers and captured by Ashley Paige Photography. Long tables dressed in white linens and decorated with natural greenery were set up outside for guests to wine and dine, surrounded by the rustic elegance of the venue that was created by the help of Engaged and Inspired. Our favorite part of the venue was inside the Carriage House, where the dancing and cake cutting took place. With twinkling string lights wrapping around exposed wooden beams and a rustic wheel chandelier hanging from above, Jamie and Jeff had their first dance surrounded by loved ones and a natural, romantic setting they envisioned for their wedding day.
