Jenny & Matt | Quail Ranch Wedding | Simi Valley Wedding Photographer
And Charlie, don’t forget what happened to the man who got everything he’d ever wished for…He lived happily ever after.
Jenny and Matt’s Quail Ranch Simi Valley Wedding was the product of the summer wedding vision Jenny had always dreamed about. My jaw dropped when Jenny told me about Willy Wonka vision, and I think I just stared open-mouthed around Quail Ranch come wedding day because her and her entire time nailed it. To the wall. Between the arcade games, the themed napkins, the colorful whimsy florals by The Little Branch, this wedding pulled off “theme wedding” and made it look so classy.
Stunning details aside, what really got me at this wedding was the pinwheel of emotions. Different ones. A lot of humor in the beginning of the day happened, between Matt’s hilarious “Do my makeup” antics with Jenny’s make up artist/friend, and popsicle sticks in the sun by the pool by the gals.
During the ceremony, so. much. crying. happened. Even from me. These two, and their friends who they asked to recite a movie line about love, have a way with words that, coupled with seeing how they look at each other, leave you with goosebumps on your arms.
Oh, and the food. Gah. Grazed on so many different stations, the food was absolutely amazing. When Jenny had asked Matt about the one thing he wanted about this wedding, he said, “Let’s skip the sit down dinner set up.” And they went with it. They had cocktail style table setups that absolutely made every guest be more present. In the moment, soaking up the summer sun and the love that permeated the air.
I went a little nuts with their gallery and gave them so many photos, so here are just some of the highlights!
