Pretty Portuguese Wedding at a Carmel Valley Ranch

Real Wedding Ideas: #boutonniere, #colorful, #gold, #invitations, #outdoor reception, #ranch, #shoes, #vineyard


Metallic gold high heeled sandals with big bows sets the tone for this fun ranch wedding loaded with feminine flourishes.


Gold metallic invitations with faux lace details are both fun and fancy.


The bride's lace-edged cathedral wedding veil suits the Old World vibe of the venue, and reflects her Portuguese heritage.


The historic ranch boasts vintage wood, weathered stone walls and wrought-iron details, a dynamic contrast to the wedding's soft decorative accents.


This mother's bouquet includes a fetching assortment of peach ranunculas, white roses and silvery foliage.


The bride's bouquet reflects a Nature-inspired palette, with a mix of white flowers and pink, apricot and berry accents.


Bridesmaids go bold with hot-pink hydrangeas in their white and peach bouquets.


The groom's suit may be sober gray, but he sports a multi-colored pocket handkerchief and a pink boutonnierre.


The groomsmen also confidently display their bright pink boutonnieres, tying the bridal party look together.


Vintage suitcases hold the "True Love" wedding programs. Wood fans for the guests convey Southern European flair.


Small mercury glass bud vases with orange dahlias.


What ring bearer doesn't want to be a super-hero? Give him a cape, and he'll practically fly down the wedding aisle!


The couple is enjoying the ceremony, framed by a natural driftwood arch entwined with fuschia bougainvillea.


The gorgeous newlyweds make their way down the aisle, with big grins!


No shortage of color in the table decor! Turquoise votive holders and mercury glass vases sporting orange and yellow dahlias are both festive and retro.


The dramatic landscape of the ranch grounds includes this old oak, where the new Mr. and Mrs. steal a moment of privacy.


Lighthearted cocktail napkins encourage guests to enjoy themselves; a milk glass vase holds rose buds.


Guests will dine in the landscaped Courtyard at long family-style tables.


Table numbers painted on Mexican tiles.


Tiles boast gold-stenciled phrases in Portuguese, such as "In wine there is truth."


The desert buffet is a folksy mix of tempting pastries and pies, made even more irresistible in the flickering candlelight.


The simple white wedding cake sits atop a metallic gold stand with coral ranuncula accents. The personalized cake topper is the couple's initials against a glittery heart backdrop.


The sweetheart table is festooned with colorful blooms. The gold signage reads "A vossa sauna," Portuguese for "to your health."


The beautiful bride changes into her second wedding dress, a white mini, for the dancing in the Holman Ranch barn.


The cake table sign translates as, "Love is sweet."


The ranch in the evening, aglow with market lights and the warm pleasure of a joyous wedding!

Fun and Floral Outdoor Wedding in Carmel

Real Wedding Ideas: #boutonniere, #bridesmaid dresses, #dessert table, #favors, #gold, #metallic, #outdoor reception, #peonies, #pink, #ranch, #ranunculus, #signs, #vineyard, #wedding cake


The vineyard estate gate's swing open, inviting friends and family to this ranch wedding weekend.


These wedding invitations convey the soft romance of a watercolor painting.


What a clever gift from the bride: Custom cufflinks. One is a photo of the groom's grandpa and the other says, "Mighty fine."


The bride's wedding dress also has the personal touch: The wedding date embroidered inside the bodice!


The glorious bridal bouquet features large peach-pink peonies surrounded by white and apricot ranunculas and pale-green foliage.


The groom's ranuncula boutonniere harmonizes with his sweetheart's bouquet.


The mix-and-match bridesmaid's dresses in cream and blush-pink look as pretty as the nosegays they carry.


The wedding aisle is marked by a handpainted sign with fairytale flavor: "Happily Ever After Starts Here."


Bud vases hung on chairs embellish the wedding aisle.



Handmade hankies in colorful floral prints double as souvenirs, and for drying those "Happy Tears."


Coordinating floral displays decorate the natural wedding arch crafted from eucalyptus tree branches.


We get a little misty-eyed ourselves to see the bride's mother walking her down the aisle in her lacey-pink dress.


Tying the knot—literally!


In the "Wish We'd Thought of It" category: Printed wedding vows, to save forever!


Clever cocktail hour fare—mini chicken-and-waffles!


The floral theme continues—colorful silk blooms make such pretty escort cards.


Gold calligraphy sign invites friends and family to find their seats.


Holman Ranch's courtyard surrounded by trees and the Old World facade of historic buildings, is a lovely place to dine.


The centerpieces of eucalyptus, ranunculas and pink peonies lend an unstructured elegance to the tablescape.


Table accents include mercury glass votives and small bud vases with white ranunculas and berries.


This unique wedding cake has a yummy home-made look. The topper in gold script says "love." What else is there?


The desert display tempts beneath huge orange initials of the bride and groom.


The wedding favors are jars of homemade jam and custom CDs of songs that tell the couples own "Love Story." Personal and romantic!


Fruit tarts and small pies beckon atop the glittery gold tablecloth.


The drama of the ranch landscape makes for frame-worthy wedding portraits.
