Malibu California Wedding at the Rancho del Cielo

Salina & Travis

Malibu, CA

From the Photographer: “Salina and Travis’ theme was “more fun than fancy.” They really wanted to have a a fun but intimate outdoor event for their friends and family. They picked Rancho Del Cielo because of its amazing view! The venue is one of our favorites to shoot at. The old California Rancho house on the property has an upstairs for the girls to get ready (and peak out at the guests arriving). The ceremony space is on a bluff overlooking the Channel Islands, Santa Catalina and the Palos Verdes Hills. The reception area and gardens are filled with Roses, Jasmine and Lavender. There is a huge dance area, little romantic corners, an outdoor fire place and a crazy beautiful view of the sunset. Their colors were grey and yellow, Salina and Travis really wanted to keep their theme “more fun than fancy” through everything. The invites were DIY, they used their engagement photos for the programs. The wedding guest book was a mini Polaroid camera for people to include photos of themselves next to their wedding wishes. The centerpieces were photos of the bride and groom through the years – they had 11 tables, so each number had photos of them at that age.” – Viera Photographics
