Rustic Burlap and Rosy Coral: Romantic Wedding at Holman Ranch, Vineyard and Winery

Real Wedding Ideas: #barn, #boutonniere, #coral, #escort cards, #favors, #invitations, #outdoor ceremony, #outdoor reception, #pink, #ranch, #rustic, #vineyard, #white, #winery

Guests are given a down-home welcome to Holman Ranch by the signature bronze statue of a cowboy and his dog.

Weddings here are a delightful study in contrasts—a feminine wedding dress framed by a stone wall and antique wagon wheels, and sparkly pale pink sandals poised next to rosy succulents.

The bride makes her entrance in a strapless mermaid gown. The feathery, white-blossomed bouquet is wrapped with a strip of burlap, a clever nod to this rustic-themed wedding.

We totally want these short bridesmaids dresses in cheery coral. The bright poppies in their multicolored bouquets tie the look together.

The smiling groom is almost ready. Notice his vibrant harlequin-patterned socks? You go, guy!

Whimsical and retro, the entire invitation collection captures the vintage simplicity of the day.

The handmade wooden ring box pairs well with a vase of baby’s breath.

The ceremony site, roped off with a welcome sign stenciled on burlap; baby’s breath aisle-markers coordinate with the off-white umbrellas, thoughtfully provided to shade the guests.

The tree-cloaked Santa Lucia Mountains form a rugged silhouette in the background.

Lemonade and iced tea are welcome summertime refreshments.

The gift table sports giant “kiss and hug” symbols, while a white mailbox is a smart place to hold cards.

The guests look on as the bridal party is arrayed on the raised stage.

A shower of white rose petals greet the new Mr. and Mrs.

The wedding party celebrates as husband and wife exchange a wedded kiss.

Unspoiled beauty is the hallmark of Holman Ranch weddings. Here, bride and groom sneak another kiss among the flowering foliage.

The bar arrayed with similarly-styled signage as the wedding aisle.

Holman Ranch is family-friendly! Here a guest shows two youngsters how to play horseshoes.

A chalkboard sign atop a rustic table directs guests to a wine and cheese display.

Eclectic antique furnishings and throw pillows create an inviting conversation nook.

Coral ribbons strung on a clothes line hold tags with table numbers. Wildflowers provide pops of color across a neutral tablescape.

Family-style dining in the courtyard suits the laid-back reception and historic surroundings.

A patch of lawn looks so refreshing among the ranch’s wood-and-stone textures.

The open barn awaits dancing and nighttime revels.

The magnificent grape arbor frames the wedding cake and the rest of the dessert buffet. A pair of hearts accent the burlap banner.

There are so many walking trails on the property dotted with gnarled oaks. Here the setting sun casts a warm glow around the happy couple.

An ancient oak, symbolizing permanence and strength, is a sacred spot for an embrace.

There’s nothing like a romantic stroll among Holman’s vineyards.

Fun wine bottles are the perfect party favors. The custom labels, with a pair of horseshoes and real pennies, capture the “Lucky in Love” theme.

Every wedding’s favorite teary-eyed moment: The father and daughter dance. He looks so proud!

Yee-haw! The groom and his mother trot out a two-step.

Another iconic wedding moment…cutting the cake! They do that so well together!
