Rustic & Elegant Wedding at Oak Canyon Ranch

"As Mark and I began wedding planning (which happened pretty quickly, 6 months to be exact) we wanted something that was rustic, airy, and romantic. I knew I never wanted a basic hotel indoor wedding. So when I stumbled upon Oak Canyon Ranch at a small bridal event held at Dukes Malibu, I knew this could potentially be the venue! When we arrived at the Malibu venue, it was almost love at first sight. I fell in love with the venue and my mind started to go a million miles an hour, oh the things we could do with this beautiful venue, surrounded by trees and a beautiful creek that runs behind the venue. As we left the venue, Mark knew I was in love with it  and we actually ended up canceling our appointment with another venue we were supposed to see after it! 

The day of our wedding was anything short than a perfect summer wedding. Our intimate wedding consisted of 130 of our closest family and friends. I walked the aisle down to the most beautiful setting! I didn't need a whole lot of decorations as the venue spoke for itself. We had dinner and danced under hundreds of feet of bistro lights strung throughout a beautiful green lawn. Dinner went along with the rustic feel as we had a farm to table menu with served appetizers during cocktail hour. We had 3 chandeliers hanging from the trees and laid out 3 long rows of beautiful wooden tables to make the setting intimate for our guests. Our guests danced all night through the beautiful venue tucked away in the Malibu canyons under starlight and stringed bistro lights. It was the most beautiful night and we had so many compliments about how beautiful and romantic our wedding was. Everything went perfectly and I couldn't have been more pleased as how smoothly everything turned out." -bride
