Rustic Coastal Mendocino Wedding / by Sonya Yruel

Ashley and Andrew met while working in Afghanistan and have traveled all over the globe. Since they love the outdoors, they chose a hidden gem of northern California:  the rugged coastline of Mendocino. Their ceremony was held in the Cypress Grove, right at the very edge of the bluffs, overlooking the crashing waves. Family and friends gathered in a tight-knit circle as both the bride and groom's fathers shared the officiating.
The celebration afterwards was held at one of my favorite California venues, Spring Ranch Barn, where the rustic decor of the old 1840 hay barn and all its antique knick knacks mixed with the elegance of wildflowers and lace. Some of my favorite details were the mix of antique chairs, the bride's floral crown in lieu of a traditional bouquet, and the couple's exquisite letter-pressed stationary. The party went late into the night and I love it when both young and old kick up their heels!
