Kaitlyn relaxed all morning and got ready with her bridal party at a nearby hotel.

We loved all of the stone and cacti on the property. Kaitlyn’s romantic touches were a beautiful contrast that really complimented the Rancho Chiquita grounds.kr12

How great are the groomsmen’s mismatching socks? So fun!

Kaitlyn and Ryan opted for a First Look. While this is becoming more popular than ever, we love their addition of exchanging notes to each other before turning around.kr18

One of my favorite parts of Rancho Chiquita are the enormous opportunities for photos! There are tons of great spots, not to mention a verrrrryyyyy long aisle to the ceremony.

Streamers on chiavaris are such a fun alternative to sashes! You don’t quite realize how many photos the newlywed chairs are in till you get your proofs. This is an excellent way to add a touch, without a huge financial investment.kr42

Once the sun set, it was time to dance! Guests were fueled all night long with plenty of sweet treats.kr44

I just love these black and white cake shots!

Then, things really got fun. I had to laugh when the garter got stuck on top of the market lighting. Not to worry, all the men created a quick human pyramid and easily got it down.
