Ian + Emily :: A Stylish Ranch Wedding

January 18th, 2011

This was a wedding I've been dying to post for awhile. Ian and Emily's wedding is special for a ton of reasons. For starters, they are friends of mine. Ian is a surfing buddy and Emily has styled many of the fashion shoots I've done over the years. I shot Emily's brother Seth's wedding a few years back and that was one of my favorite weddings as well. You may remember this wedding - Click Here to See It.

Their suggested dress code was americana. In the invite, it suggested to 'think Jonny Cash meets John Wayne'. Their guests nailed it. Probably the hippest crowd I've seen at a wedding.

The wedding was held at the Dent House in Ojai, CA. I LOVE Ojai weddings. Every venue has so much aesthetic and so many options to shoot. The Dent House fell into this same category.

I'm going to be posting this wedding in parts so make sure to check back to see more. If you head over to the Green Wedding Shoes blog, they just featured this wedding and the post looks great. Make sure to take a peek over there.

Vendor Info:

Emily's Dress was a Spring 11 runway Fend dress, her shoes from Barneys, her headpiece was given to her from a dear friend/ vintage collector Valarie, it was a very old vintage wax floral headpiece from Czechoslovakia

food:  OSTERIA Monte Grappa  (805) 640-6767
