Intimate Wedding at Calamigos Ranch

What a stunning and intimate wedding for C + J, surrounded by 40 of their closest friends and family. It was a hot summer July wedding, but that wouldn’t stop C + J from creating a beautiful wedding at one of Malibu’s most beautiful wedding venues!

The day started out with a surprise first look with C and her bridesmaids. The bride’s wedding dress had an embroidered heart taped in that is made of her grandmother’s wedding dress. And of course, J’s suit was custom-made and designed by him.

Then, during the first touch, the bride gave the groom pins from “The Office”, Jonathan’s favorite show. The pins were Jim’s tie and Pam’s veil. One of my favorite parts of their malibu wedding was their ceremony. They did a “unity tequila shot” since the bride was becoming a Blanco, and they even used Blanco tequila!

The wedding reception space at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu is just stunning – C + J made the table numbers based on the years they have been together with little blurbs about each thing they experience that year. This Malibu wedding was detailed galore, even the desserts had a special meaning!! The llama cookies represent C + J’s proposal location, and the milojhas were a Peruvian dessert in honor of J’s heritage.

At the end of their intimate wedding, the couple did their first dance to the first song they ever slow danced to together, how cute is that?!

All in all, they were both most excited about officially marrying their best friend!!
