Another weekend, another wedding on the road... I had the distinct pleasure of spending last weekend in Ojai, photographing Teri and Rand's Twin Peaks Ranch wedding. I remember discussing Teri and Rand's wedding back in April, right after we shot their engagement session in Santa Barbara, and couldn't wait to see what the day would bring. It did not disappoint.
We began the day at the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa, the luxurious compound where Teri and Rand got ready. From there we headed directly to the Ranch, guided through the oak-covered streets by hand-made "Teri and Rand" signs. Upon stepping out of my car I was greeted by 106 ℉ weather, but thankfully their gorgeous ceremony was held under a canopy of giant oak and eucalyptus trees.
Their reception was beautifully styled by Tonya Szele, who, along with Mindy Rice's over-the-top floral design, pulled out all the stops in helping Teri and Rand design the event. Guests were treated to delicious apps and dinner by Command Performance Catering, incredible tunes by the Tijuana Dogs, and a killer video by superstar filmmaker/producer Pete Santa Maria.
Special thanks to Ásgeir Bollason for his help in shooting this wedding!
