When a bride and groom choose a naturally-beautiful ranch for their wedding, sometimes some unexpected guests (like the one pictured above) may drop in to take a peek. Mary and Sam didn’t mind though! Their classic outdoor wedding was held last fall at the Carmel Valley Ranch in California, and by the looks of it, the day was perfect for them…
Many Eco-Beautiful Wedding wishes to Mary and Sam!

Ece and Warren’s wedding day started out chilly, windy and rainy, but they didn’t let anything cloud the love. The bride and her female attendants (including her sweet daughter Talia) prepped for the day at the groom’s parents’ home, which was filled with antiques and provided great vintage props for the photographers to use.
The ceremony site overlooked the water, and when the clouds eventually gave way to sunshine right after the ceremony, the setting was perfect. Ece, Warren and their family waltzed the night away in a field of fairy lights…such magic.
Many Eco-Beautiful Wedding Wishes to Ece and Warren!
