Randy and Kaitlin wed along the Northern California coast in beautiful Big Sur. The couple wanted guests to not only attend a wedding at a spectacular place, but it was important that everyone get the opportunity to take in the natural surroundings. The selected the Mill Creek Ranch as the perfect spot (the couple were lucky enough to have a family member who owns the ranch and could not think of a better use for it than an intimate wedding). Kenna Krivacsy, the bride’s sister and wedding planner explained, “Randy and Kaitlin’s wedding guests were shuttled up to Mill Creek Ranch in Big Sur for New Year’s Day to enjoy the 110 acre ranch. From the redwood canyons, waterfalls to meadows and wildflowers, to the succulent gardens guests were able to relax and enjoy the beauty. As guests arrived they were greeted with champagne and appetizers to take with them as they explored the property.”The ceremony took place high above the Pacific Ocean on a deck overlooking the coast and included the couple’s favorite four pups that were an important part of the big day. We love the mismatched ceremony chairs to infuse a bit of character and depth into the deck without taking away from the incredible view!
Post ceremony guests were ushered into a chapel on property that had been transformed into a swanky dinner setting. Kenna explained, “When you came into the reception in the chapel you instantly were taken back by the structure which was constructed with redwood from the property. They wanted to mix elegance with comfort and that is exactly what they did. The table was adorned with diamonds, silver, milk glass, and a black pin tuck runner all which gave an elegant look but we made sure to keep the sofa in the chapel so guests could relax.”
And as dinner came to an end, “The sun was about the set the guests were wisped up to the point surrounded by the Santa Lucia Mountains of the Los Padres National Forest on the edge of the ocean to watch sunset. This was a perfect way to end the evening.”
Congratulations Randy and Kaitlin!
