Family and friends gathered for the wedding of Lindsey Cruz (26 and an executive assistant) and Bobby Crocker (25 and a fitness entrepreneur) in scenic San Luis Obispo, California, where the couple met. “Bobby and I wanted the location to be meaningful, which is why our venue was located in San Luis Obispo,” Lindsey says. The beautiful setting combined the barn trend and California vineyard style with a romantic theme and a  palette of champagne, gold and blush. Lindsey wore an ivory gown with a sweetheart neckline and silhouette keyhole back. She paired it with her grandmother’s blue vintage ring, another pearl ring from her mother and yellow gold drop earrings. Bobby wore a navy blue suit, a white shirt, an ivory tie and a watch given to him by Lindsey. Groomsmen wore similar suits with blush ties to match the bridesmaid dresses, which were long Joanna August silhouettes. 

Their venue, Greengate Ranch and Vineyard, allowed guests to overlook the vineyards during the barn reception. Bobby's father served as the officiant, and the pair lit a unity candle, a favorite tradition, under a wooden cross. Blush rose petals were scattered down the aisle of dark wooden chairs. The reception took place at farm tables set up outside the vintage barn, where tables were set up under string lights. Guests sipped on signature cocktails and enjoyed the cigar and whiskey bar. Lindsey and Bobby's tip to future couples: “Your wedding day will go by fast. Make sure to slow down and soak it all in.” —Caroline Eubanks

Stationery and paper details included the invitation suite, featuring a save-the-date with a photo of the couple, stickers as favors and all the signs. The same group created custom cigar stickers and an L&B logo.
Lindsey had three maids of honor—her best friends since childhood—and two other bridesmaids. Each wore gold earrings and bracelets, which were gifts from Lindsey.
The ladies all got ready together, helping Lindsey get into her dress and veil. They had their hair and makeup done by the bride's hairdresser and makeup artist.
The gentlemen wore navy blue suits with white shirts and blush ties to coordinate with the bridesmaid dresses. They paired them with brown leather shoes and belts. The ring bearer wore a similar ensemble with a white shirt and navy suspenders, bow tie and pants.
The flower girl wore a white dress with gold ballet flats and a flower crown to accent her curled hair. Lindsey gave her a strand of pearls to wear.
Lindsey's closest friends wore different styles of long Joanna August dresses in blush tones. They accessorized with neutral wedges and the gold earrings and bracelet that Lindsey had given them as gifts.
"We went for a romantic vintage theme and picked a natural palette that complemented that: champagne, gold and blush," Lindsey says. Pops of bright colors could be seen in the centerpieces, bouquets and floral arrangements around Greengate Ranch and Vineyard, including green seeded eucalyptus, fern leafs, jasmine vines and blush flowers).
Lindsey wore a Marisa gown in ivory with a silhouette keyhole back and a sweetheart neckline. She had her seamstress took the excess lace off her dress, which became her veil. She accessorized with her mother's and grandmother's jewelry, Jimmy Choo wedges and a diamond bracelet from Bobby.
Lindsey carried a bouquet of white garden roses, burgundy scabiosa, blush rananculus and white dahlias with accents of eucalyptus. The bridesmaids carried similar bouquets, while groomsmen wore eucalyptus, fern and jasmine vine boutonnieres.
Lindsey's father's bright red 1966 Ford Mustang was a statement piece of the reception, carrying the couple to the festivities. It was parked near the cigar bar for the rest of the evening.
Tables were placed in front of the vintage barn, topped with champagne table runners, eucalyptus centerpieces, candles and mercury-glass holders. Place settings featured gold chargers and jam jars on the table, the favor for guests.
The cake was placed inside the barn's romantic interior. Lindsey and Bobby served a banana nut cake with vanilla frosting and flowers draped down the side as decoration.
After the reception, many guests stayed on-site at the Ranch House, where the bridal party stayed, and continued celebrating into the evening.
Centerpieces included vintage mercury-glass vases filled with an organic and romantic arrangement of garden roses, spray roses, a pop of burgundy scabiosa, rananculus, seeded eucalyptus, smilax, Queen Anne's lace and blush stock.
