Real Couples // A Farm Wedding at the Circle Oak Ranch in Fallbrook, CA: Casper + Ulises

The couple told me they were looking for a venue with a rustic ranch theme, and found it in the Circle Oak Ranch. They viewed the photos online, and immediately scheduled a visit. They knew instantly that it was the place they were going to get married. 

Their ceremony took place at the base of the ranch's five hundred year old oak tree—a perfect metaphor for long lasting love. 

After their ceremony, they posed for photos with their photographer, Derek, against the stunning backdrop of the ranch, and followed with a reception under the open sky and café lights.

For more of this couple's story, and to see their engagement photos, you can view their engagement session that we posted in back in January, which also took place at the Circle Oak Ranch.
