Teri and Rand's Twin Peaks Ranch Wedding

This past September we had the pleasure of putting on Teri and Rand's beautifully rustic wedding at Twin Peaks Ranch. From the moment she started getting ready, the day proved to be a gorgeous affair.
Teri and Rand began their day by getting ready at the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa. They then made their way to the Ranch itself, gracefully guided by handmade signs pointing guests to the ceremony. 
Mindy Rice‘s floral designs were the icing on the cake, providing beautiful arrangements and decadence at every turn.  Delicious appetizers and dinner were provided by esteemed Command Performance Catering, dancing music by the Tijuana Dogs, and a touching video by filmmaker/producer Pete Santa Maria.
Special thanks to John Schnack and Ásgeir Bollason for shooting this day!

Burlap themed table settings and escort cards to tie together the rustic look Teri and Brand were going for.

Sliders and champagne? Yes, please.

The elegant wedding cake paired with the adorable groom's cake (featuring his three pet labradors) really highlighted Teri and Rand's personalities!
