If you’re wanting an effortless and romantic look for your wedding, you will fall for this ranch wedding from Going Lovely. It is the perfect blend of relaxed, rustic, and chic. I love the bright pops of purple and orange in the florals!

One of the most important parts of our wedding day to us was that we were able to have it in a special place for us and that our guests had a fun time.  We knew we found the right venue when we visited Hidden Villa–a place I grew up visiting with my family. For the second task, we knew we’d need some help.  Nick and I aren’t great party planners so having PJ & Christie’s help was essential.

It’s tough to say what my favorite moments of the day were since the whole night was so spectacular. One of my favorite moments was (not surprisingly) when I got to the alter and got to hold Nick’s hands. I was so nervous so seeing him and being up there was such an amazing feeling! The other vivid memory I have from our day was after we finished our photos (after the ceremony), Nick and I had 15 minutes to spend just with each other to take it all in. We actually hadn’t even planned for that time but it ended up being one of my favorite parts of the night. Having a few minutes to let the excitement of the afternoon set in was absolutely priceless and made the rest of the evening more fun too.

Apart from helping coordinate the day, the biggest thing we needed help with was with the design elements. Having the special details helped make our wedding special and is one of my favorite parts of looking back at our pictures. From incorporating my grandfather’s ladders to using the window shutters for the name tags, I couldn’t have been happier with how it all turned out.
