Rustic Orchard Chic Wedding
Meet Katie & Rob!
She is an Orthodontist in Novato and he is an Account Executive at Salesforce. This beautiful couple met and dated for a short time in 2007, but the timing wasn’t right. Five years passed before they reunited with a long distance relationship, falling deeply in love and getting engaged a year later.
Timing is everything!
And the timing was perfect in October at Dawn Ranch where Katie and Rob chose to say I do! Brilliant autumn colors, bright blue sky and the gorgeous orchard setting combined to create absolute perfection!
Katie’s other love of her life is her sweet, 12 year old lab, Charlie. She was the perfect flower “girl” and added such a sweet and personal touch to this already perfect day.
From Katie: “Dawn Ranch was the perfect venue for us because it provided a weekend getaway for our guests to stay together. It felt like Dirty Dancing meets Summer camp!”
Katie and Rob enlisted Kelly Cloney of Kelly & Company as their wedding planner.
From Kelly: “Katie wanted a clean, crisp palette of whites and greens. We incorporated white gourds and oodles of lush florals to compliment Dawn Ranch’s Orchard feel in the fall. We also incorporated apples in the flowers and decor to go with the apple orchard where they held their ceremony.”
What was inside those adorable favor bags?! Pistachios!! From Katie’s family’s pistachio farm: Bales Pistachios in Chowchilla, Ca. What a perfect wedding favor!
From Katie: “We were so pleased with our wedding coordinator and photographer. They could have not done a better job. We are a lucky couple to have had everything go so well.”
Congratulations Katie & Rob!!! We wish you only the best in your future together!
