Venue: Murieta Inn and Spa, Rancho Murieta, CA
Photo Shoot: Our Wedding magazine

Theme: Western Glamour

Our goal was to combine a western flair (horses, jeans, cowboy hat, etc.) with the glamour of a wedding (wedding gown, makeup, flowers, wedding cake, place settings, etc.). And this photo shoot is the result.

Each wedding is unique. It is the combination of the personalities of the bride and groom. In planning your Dazzling Day, I'll get to know you a bit first. Then, we'll review options and select the ones you prefer and fit your budget. Finally, I'll help you through each of the many details to coordinate your wedding.

While the pictures in this gallery came from a photo shoot, we can use some of the concepts in your wedding plan, depending on what appeals to you. Read more about my Wedding Planning Philosophy to see how we will review and select options that meet your needs.

Venue: Rancho Murieta

The Murieta Inn and Spa in Rancho Murieta (Sacramento County, CA) was chosen as the venue for this photo shoot. With a combination of indoor and outdoor settings, activities including the Murieta Equestrian Center nearby and golf/tennis at the Rancho Murieta Country Club, there's lots for you and your guests to do. You can go for a hot air balloon ride, enjoy wine tasting, or just relax with spa amenities.

Rancho Murieta is located about 25 miles east of downtown Sacramento. It is well out of the city, yet still in Sacramento county. Map …

I can make venue recommendations or work with ideas you have in mind as we plan the details of your wedding. See my Wedding Planning Services for ideas about how I can help you have A Dazzling Day!
