Amanda and Taylor’s California wedding was sent to us by the wonderful Kim Maguire Photography. Was is possible for us to avoid falling head over heels for this beautifully rustic and intimate wedding celebration? We think not. The gorgeous setting and little bits of DIY goodness flowing throughout this event had us hooked from the start! Take a peek at the beautiful photos and hear a little about the wedding from the bride below …
Amanda: “I did quite a lot of online research for perfect, off the beaten path and unique places to get married. I came across Figueroa Mountain Farmhouse and fell in love with the pictures. I could see us there among all the beauty in a very natural outdoor wedding. The minute we drove up the long road towards the house I got that “this is perfect..I can see my wedding day” feeling. It was the most beautiful old farmhouse setting out on a huge plot of private land overlooking the Los Olivos country side. We are both very laid back people and we thought this spot would really give us a wonderful “under the stars” farmhouse chic wedding! The accommodations at the farmhouse are large enough that we could have our whole wedding party stay there with us and make a weekend out of it. It felt like home and the best place for us to spend quality time with our closest friends, be in a gorgeous setting and begin our new life together! To be honest..we still dream about living at the farmhouse and reminisce about our wedding weekend there all the time.
Side Note: we were married by our best friend (who became a Deputy for the Day thru the state of California). He is the reason we met, it was his apartment that we both stayed in and met in LA. It kind of brought things full circle for him to marry us and bless our union. He also had a lifelong dream of marrying friends..glad we could make it come true! ;)”
