Marie+Steve ~ Married at La Cuesta Ranch!

This was an epic wedding! Marie & Steve were married at La Cuesta Ranch in San Luis Obispo, CA. With a little help from their friends, they put together a beautiful event ~ there were plenty of smiles and tears…and purple; what could be better?

Matt & I began the day at the hotel where Marie & Steve were carefully trying to avoid seeing each other as their respective rooms were only a few doors apart! However, this made it easy for me to bounce back and forth between rooms to grab pictures of both groups! Marie’s dress, despite the struggle it was to tie up, was absolutely beautiful!

After an hour or prep pictures at the hotel, we made our way to the ranch; in my many visits to the barn at La Cuesta Ranch, I’ve never seen the barn so colorful…I love that place! The rest of the day flew by, and the pictures added up! We witnessed Marie & Steve’s first look, a ceremony up high on the hill and beautiful reception & dinner in the barn. The dance floor was opened up by the newlyweds and continued on past my curfew! It was a beautiful event at La Cuesta Ranch. Congratulations to these newlyweds ~ I am very pleased to share these photos! Enjoy!
