If you and your groom are “country at heart” and want some wedding inspiration — take a look at these wedding images from a ceremony and reception at the Alisal Guest Ranch in California, as presented by Jackie Wonders. As the afternoon sun shines over the Santa Barbara hillsides, guests gather for a simple outdoor ceremony. Décor is nostalgic for the occasion: old love letters and poetry books wrapped in ribbon…simple nosegays and tiny bouquets in pottery…party favor bags of delicate cloth. The bride wears white lace; the groom wears pale blue and cream, a vest, a dashing hat. And no bridesmaids are unhappy with a one-style-fits-all dress here — because they’re in dresses of every color of the rainbow, a bouquet of smiling faces, all set off by cowboy boots.

Romance carries through to the ceremony: a simple wooden pergola twined with garlands of flowers sports a string of cowbells and a bright streamer on top. Friends offer music and song, the groom wipes away a tear…and then it’s time to celebrate. Young and old alike have a spin in paddleboats, while a plane writes the word “LOVE” in puffs of smoke on an azure sky. Here, you can write the bride and groom a note with a colorful marker — there, you can enjoy a slice of wedding-cake confections marked “bride” and “groom.” Then, as the sun sets and lights come on the pier amid laughter and dancing, the bride and groom are seen in a sailboat made just for two! It’s a ranch wedding, country all the way — and it might be just the kind of wedding you’re dreaming of.
