Mark and Kristiina envisioned a simple and fun filled day for their December 16th Wedding and that is exactly what they got. Most of their guests were able to stay onsite at the new, spectacular Wedding Venue, HorseTail Ranch located in the quaint western town of Creston, California. Guests began their day with a breakfast buffet hosted in the yard off the Main Villa and could enjoy sweeping, majestic views and lovely fare from Field to Table. Following brunch guests were encouraged to partake in an activity of their choice: wine tasting guided by Fetch, bike riding on the many trails on the 150 acre property or horseback riding through the on-site company, Central Coast Trailrides. Guests reconvened at 4pm for a truly unique Ceremony which featured dark fruitwood chivari chairs placed directly on the dock at the venue's on-site lake. The intimate Ceremony was orchestrated excellently by Officiant Steve Lieberman. Afterwards, guests strolled through the countryside, back to the Main Villa for special toasts. The Bride's family attended from Finland and brought Finnish pink champagne for the occasion. Field to Table served appetizers and the Bride's nieces sang and played guitar during cocktail hour. Then, everyone moved inside the Main Villa where farmhouse tables were placed next to the roaring fireplace for a family style 5 course dinner. The fete was captured by Leana with Looking Glass Photography. Rentals were provided by All About Events. The Bride wore her Mother's vintage Wedding Gown. Hair and Make-up was done by The Queen's Bee's. Congratulations to Mark & Kristiina! What a lovely event to close 2017!
