hello + welcome!

This Barn wedding in Northern California was nothing short of spectacular. This venue is on my top ten venues ever and I have been a wedding photographer for over 25 years with over 500 weddings photographed. The open ranch feel to the venue with the rolling mountains in the background superb. It was a cattle ranch that was in the middle of nowhere but so amazing. I felt like we were right in a scene from Yellowstone!

Ceremony At Orlopp Ranch

Makenna & Kevin were married at Orlopp Ranch on Saturday September 24th. The day started out relaxed with the girls getting ready at the hotel. Makenna is a bride that is just as relaxed as they come. We travelled over to the ranch before the wedding and were able to start with guest photos. The venue was amazing with a large white open barn for the reception. Their decor was country chic. The ceremony view had a background of cows and rolling hills. The bridesmaids were dressed with cowgirl boots and sweet autumn colored dresses, and the guys had cowboy hats(my favorite style) along with their handsome blue suits.

Ranch Wedding Northern California

After the ceremony we hightailed it back to the rolling hills and cows for the romantics. The sun was about to set so we had the wonderful orange glow of the sun. I love to use nature as my background for my romantics and the rocky hills were in particular, stunning. The bride and groom even wanted to go right down to the cows, Makenna is a horse person and she wasn’t worried about the dust. Of course I was very careful about not getting anything on her white dress!

The reception was elegantly designed under the pretty white barn with a country chic theme. they used chandeliers to add to the elegance. The bride and groom also had a wonderful sitting area with hay bales and pillows, where guests could kick back and have a glass of wine. I’d say all in all this was a perfect Barn wedding in northern California.
