Real Wedding from San Luis Obispo

My cousin Niki got engaged in July as a surprise 30th birthday present!   When she announced the location as the Santa Margarita Ranch, just a few weeks ago, I had to be nosy and scope it out! Of course, Google led me to Style Me Pretty.  There were several great posts, almost all of them from Allyson Magda Photography (who is a member of SMP’s Little Black Book).

This one seemed like the right one to send to my parents, aunts and uncles as a tease, as well as to showcase for MJW readers.  It’s a beautiful fall wedding and we’re still anxiously awaiting fall to arrive in Texas.  You’ll almost be able to taste the apples & the honey (appropriate for those of us in the throes of the Jewish High Holiday Season).

Niki’s wedding promises to be a summer version of this intimate ranch style wedding.  I can barely wait until July 2012 to see her all dressed up as a bride.  Until then I’ll have to content myself with these great photos (and the video on Allyson’s blog)!  You don’t want to miss seeing all the pictures and video she has–they’ll provide inspiration for a bride of any season!



Allyson writes on her blog, “Their wedding was off the hook in terms of details, from their amazing and beautiful invitations to the mass amounts of magnolia leave swags and wreaths, to the denim, yes incredibly fashionable denim bridesmaids dresses, to the train ride – did I say TRAIN ride to the reception for the guests!? And that’s just a start…”
