Modern Day American Gothic Wedding

This bride and groom had “warm feet” from the beginning. They knew in their heart of hearts this was love. It was real. And there were no “cold feet” to be found at any time. What could be more fitting than celebrating the union of their love with friends and family at Heartstone Ranch located in the Carpinteria Foothills. They shared their day and gave their love to each guest with “love” rocks on every place setting. Their heart of hearts couldn’t be more symbolic. 

Country and Elegance met at Heartstone Ranch and the result was stunning. They held their ceremony under the pergola in the back yard and spruced it with drapery and crystal chandeliers to create the perfect framing of their nuptials. The long communal style wooden tables were set with lace runners, gold rimmed plates, heart stones and a menu with their words of appreciation. Their sweetheart table was ultra glam with the gorgeous champagne and lace drape.

The table scape and place settings were designed and set to perfection and ready for some Pure Joy scrumptious eats…
