Bohemian Black Tie Wedding at Alisa Ranch

Oliva and Will’s May wedding at Alisal Ranch was a three day affair that included a rodeo, “Olynnpics” and a lakeside rehearsal dinner! They had a unique, black tie meets bohemian that worked perfectly at their venue, and I had so much fun creating wood signs, chalkboards, menus, escort cards and much more.

The rehearsal dinner took place next to the lake at Alisal Ranch! I created paper bag menus, and used demijohn vases to create a seating chart.

The wedding ceremony took place under gorgeous sycamore trees, and Camellia Floral Design added some lovely floral touches.

Guests were transported from the ceremony to the reception in style!

This ombre calligraphy escort card display was one of my favorite details!

Macramé details added a boho touch to the reception.


Their wedding menus doubled as place cards, with guests name written in calligraphy on the cover!

Maybe my favorite detail of all was these leather bar menus!
