A Romantic, Vineyard Wedding at Greengate Ranch and Vineyard in San Luis Obispo, California

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
