Relaxed and Colorful Ojai Ranch Wedding: Olivia + Jack

Olivia + Jack's Ojai wedding was a beautiful, sun-drenched day. The couple were married on a private ranch nestled in the Ojai Valley, with lots of open fields and an insane view of the surrounding mountains. Also, amazing light + a greenhouse + a beautiful couple = some magical photos! 

The couple exchanged their vows beside a picturesque pond in front of an intimate group of family and friends. After the ceremony, the guests moved to the other side of the pond for the reception. Olivia + Jack had Willow Events & Design coordinate their wedding, and they struck the perfect balance between casual and elegant, making the guests feel both special and relaxed! Everyone devoured the delicious food which was carefully crafted by Plated Events by Jason. Dessert wasn't just cake, it was cake AND chocolate chip cookies made by the mother of the bride and her friends! What a sweet way to include a favorite childhood memory! The reception was made even more magical by an incredible sunset over the mountains, as the live band, The Lucky Devils,  helped get the party on its feet! Everyone danced the night away, and the evening was full of many beautiful moments and incredible memories. Congratulations, Olivia + Jack!
