A Rustic, Country-Chic Wedding at Stone Ranch in Lodi, California

A plentiful amount of burlap and rustic DIY decor combined with a warm yellow and white color palette set the perfect vibe for this casual, country-chic wedding. Claire Beckman (25 and an insurance account manager) and Nolan Person (29 and a certified public accountant) had their outdoor wedding at Stone Ranch in Lodi, California, which fit the backyard-wedding feel they were looking for in a venue. The couple got married underneath a rustic gazebo made of wood and draped with white linens, located near the lake waterfront that was surrounded by weeping willow trees and vineyards on the property. Claire wore an elegant wedding dress with a sweetheart neckline and a ball gown skirt accented with white flowers and a yellow sash, designed by Mori Lee. The lawn reception had round dining tables dressed in ivory linens with pops of yellow from the flower centerpieces made of daisies, spider mums and craspedia accented with succulents, captured by Julie Nicole Photography. A DIY detail we loved was the standing antique piece that folded open into a seating chart, with numbers written in yellow and names of guests in white underneath. “I don’t think it was just any one thing that best reflected us on our wedding day,” Claire says. “Nolan and I love to have a good time with friends and family, and we are laid-back when it comes to events.”
