A wise man once said, “Marry your best friend.” Ok, I made that up. But, hey, it’s great advice! After a perfectly timed notification on LinkedIn brought Joliz + Tyler together, life for this sweet couple has been full of celebrations. From their romantic proposal at the Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay, to their gorgeous engagement session at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco, to the recent destination wedding festivities with both of their families in Vietnam – it’s been quite the whirlwind of romance, travel and excitement… and they’ve done it all side by side! And finally, after months of planning, it was time to celebrate Joliz + Tyler’s California wedding at the absolutely lovely Red Barn Ranch in Mendocino County. Every detail was even more darling than the last, which was to be expected, of course. I knew I loved Joliz and Tyler from experiencing their incredible style (and general attitude toward life) at their engagement session, so it was already a given that their day would be beautiful. What makes it even more perfect is how much these two adore one another AND work well together!! Often times wedding planning can be one-sided, but Tyler and Joliz were both so hands-on with the decisions, details and execution of their wedding from Day One. It was a labor of love and, if I do say so myself, a gorgeous success! To Joliz + Tyler – congratulations again and thank you both for entrusting me with your memories. I absolutely loved being a part of your special day!
Joliz, you are so exquisite in front of the camera! I couldn’t even pick a favorite!
Meanwhile, Tyler worked hard all morning to ensure that every last detail was perfect! He even got ready outside, in the 90 degree heat, because it was better for the photos! This guy!
In no time at all, we were ready for their First Look, and what better backdrop than the gorgeous barn doors of the Red Barn Ranch?!
Love this moment right before the First Look!
Some lovely ceremony details…
Fun times with the wedding party!
In LOVE with all of the sweet, romantic details throughout their cocktail + reception area! Prepare yourselves for detail overload because I was OBSESSED with their styling and design 🙂
Isn’t this GORGEOUS?!?!
Meanwhile… an outfit change was in order! Over the course of their wedding celebrations in both Vietnam and the States, Joliz actually wore 10 DRESSES! That’s right, TEN! And each one was prettier than the next. Here was her final wardrobe change into a gorgeous, long-sleeved gown that allowed her to dance the night away!
And with the last little bit of light, we climbed the hill and chased the sun for some romantic photos on the ranch.
If you can believe it, the reception was even more magical once the sun went down!
Congratulations on a fabulous wedding, newlyweds!
