Dodasa Ranch Wedding: Ashleigh and Daniel

Ashleigh and Daniel’s Dodasa Ranch wedding was magical! You’re sure to love all the photography captured by Sandra from White Ivory Photography. Sandra tells us, “Tucked away in a quiet foothill valley is Dodasa Ranch. This beautiful ranch is located in an area rich in California history including gold mining and the route of the stagecoach, as well as cattle ranching and farming. This set the stage for a modern, rustic wedding with lots of creamy beiges and yellow hues. Hints of burlap and crystal really made this wedding pop. The ceremony site is breathtaking and vows were exchanged under the large trees. An amazing time was had by all!”

Mason Jar Save the Date Card

Happy Monday, loves! We are so excited to kick off a brand new week of wedding inspiration with you. Did you have a nice weekend? We sure did, but talk about a fast few days! At least it’s finally March, which means spring isn’t too far away so we can finally start enjoying fresh flowers and sitting out in the backyard sipping on lemonade. You know, the spring and summer dreams that make even the harshest winters (like ours, this year) so worth it. Speaking of mason jars and flowers and pretty things, we spotted this floral mason jar save the date card and just had to share it with you. It’s from Lucy Loves Paper, new Featured Artist in The Marketplace. You’ll be seeing more from her in the future, so keep an eye out. Today, we’re sharing this save the date which is available in two mason jar styles: chalkboard or mint. And, as Lucy puts it herself, it’ll make your guests, “want to frame it and hang it for decor.” We couldn’t agree more. Go on, take a peek!

Mason Jar Save the Date

We are serious about all things chalkboard, but we love both of these! Which one do you like better?
