I’m so very excited to share Taylor and Alex’s wedding at their family’s cherry ranch in Leona Valley. Leona Valley is just a short drive from Santa Clarita and I always love the view on the way there. There are several farms, ranches, orchards and vineyards along the way.
Taylor and Alex had their first date as seniors in high school at the homecoming dance back in 2007. How sweet is that! Their love for one another continued to grow and they soon knew that what they had was more than just a dating relationship but something they wanted to keep forever. Alex proposed with breakfast in bed in their new home and the moment couldn’t have been more perfect! See their engagement session here: Taylor & Alex’s Engagement
Their family and close friends are very important to them which is why they quickly decided that they wanted to have a cozy intimate outdoor wedding and ceremony. Alex suggested his family’s cherry ranch and Taylor jumped at the opportunity. You will definitely see in the photos that it turned out to be the most perfect place for their wedding. Seriously dreamy!!
They hit the ground running with all the plans to transform the property. Given their many amazing talents as a couple there were several DIY details that they made themselves. From building tables, a bar, corn hole games, and giant Jenga to hanging cafe and twinkle lights and weed whacking they literally put blood sweat and happy tears into their wedding. Alex and Taylor didn’t realize was how much they would love the planning process and how it would provide such an amazingly creative way for them to collaborate and create a day that expressed who they were as a couple.
Among many the many gorgeous details I loved the single row of handmade tables for their family style reception and that Taylor wore her Grandmother’s heirloom vintage watch among her other bracelets on her wedding day. Incorporating something personal and meaningful into your wedding is always a good idea!
Congrats Taylor and Alex! You two were a dream to work with and your wedding day was absolutely gorgeous! It was my honor to be able to document your love and many amazing wedding details. I wish you two all the best and many many years of happiness as your spend your forever together as Mr. and Mrs. Copeland. – Megan
