Blush and Wood Wedding at Leo Carrillo Ranch

February 9, 2020 | Junebug Weddings

Brittany and Jon-Erik’s day at Leo Carrillo Ranch was bohemian chic with a feminine flair! Although the wedding took place in San Diego, the planning team at Details Darling pulled from the boho Palm Springs desert vibe with lots of dried elements, desert tones — and a whole lot of pampas! From rugs going down the aisle, bountiful pampas basket arrangements mixed with beautiful garden roses, mix and matched napkins and water goblets, it was the perfect bohemian, pampas-filled wedding! Fun fact: Brittany loves mud cloth. It was only fitting that the team incorporate mud cloth throughout her wedding as well. The Mud Cloth trend was carried throughout the invites to the welcome sign, to the escort display, to the table numbers and tying it all together with mud cloth lounge pillows from the brides home, all the way in Portland! If you’re a sucker for sweet, stylish details and romantic couples photos, like these by Brogen Jessup, you’re sure to feel inspired by this adorable couple’s day!

Brittany & Jon-Erik

The Wedding:

Leo Carrillo Ranch, Carlsbad, CA

I had a vision for our wedding and was very lucky that my husband was supportive of it all! I am a California girl at heart and wanted our wedding to reflect that aspect of our life. We had considered getting married in Hawaii or Palm Springs and our venue ended up being the perfect combination of both tropical and desert elements. Details Darling helped me really nail down the vibe and style of the day and everything came together perfectly!

The most memorable part of the day was having all our family and friends in the same place, at the same time, celebrating with us! We are currently located in Portland, Oregon, but our families reside all throughout California and the US. We had family travel from Canada, Hawaii, Colorado, Oregon, Nevada and more to be apart of our day and it was extra special as a result of that!

Our processional song was the Pixar song, Lava, and I walked down the aisle to Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Israel Kamakawiwoʻole. Lots of island vibes! 

I saw my wedding dress on the Grace Loves Lace Instagram and instantly knew it was the one. I tried on a few other ones, but always came back to the Paloma dress. I knew I wanted my dress to be a little more casual, something I could feel beautiful in but still run around barefoot in if needed. This dress was perfect for that! My bridesmaids wore Show Me Your MuMU bridesmaid dresses, and they were perfect! We had our groomsmen in black suits.

Brogen was amazing! She knew exactly what I wanted for our wedding photos and blew all my expectations. She is hilarious and made us all feel SO comfortable. I love her and would recommend her to anyone!

Because I live in Portland, OR, I did not have a ton of time to visit venues. One of my cousins in California recommended Leo Carrillo Ranch to me and after seeing only photographs, we took a huge risk and booked it without seeing it in person. Looking back it seems crazy, but I have no regrets! It was perfect.

I truly had an incredible experience with all my vendors, they all felt like friends by the time we had our wedding day.

My wedding planner, Alessandra from Details Darling was amazing. Planning my wedding from out of state was no easy feat, but she was available 24/7, always able to go to meetings on my behalf and was always there for anything I needed. I miss having a reason to text her everyday!

Most definitely our florist as well, Laura, from Bluebell Florals! When I first hired her, I had asked for a garden theme. Half way through the planning process, I changed my mind and went in the complete opposite direction with dried florals and no greenery. We worked back and forth to get it all right and she was SO accommodating and helpful through it all and what she put together blew all my expectations.
