A good rustic chic style wedding venue is hard to find. Make that nearly mission impossible.
Have no fear. Bheau View Ranch is here. Venue, value and mission made July 7, 2015 a special day for a chic group of wedding service vendors at the classy urbane rustic ranch.
“It was a great experience,” Bheau View Ranch owner Shera Sandwell said. “The shoot accentuated all the natural elegance and features of the ranch. It was really fun with a great group of vendors who worked well together.”
Vendors and wedding fashionistas got to strut their stuff along alongside fabulous equine who always strut at the ultimate rustic chic wedding venue. With gardens and fine lawns complimenting a working horse ranch and venue center, ocean breezes chilled out spectacular views as top-rated wedding and event vendors, planners and fellow travelers staged a styled wedding shoot for the ages.
“Soft, modern and romantic are the key words for today,” event designer Lorena Riach of Rustic Vintage Events said as the event and style shoot she arranged took off in mid-morn. “A stunning backdrop that doubles as a table runner for this reception, impeccable calligraphy, cheerful floral design, and even two horses and pony; this shoot has it all.”
Riach fused together an outstanding group of vendors for the Lucky in Love shoot that was picked up by Wedding Chicks and other media sources. (Visit Wedding Chicks at http://bit.ly/1foBu7b for the real deal.) Kudos came from near and far up to and including Shera Sandwell’s classic and chic Bheau View Ranch on an ancient knoll high above the Twin Oaks Valley.
“For the Lucky in Love shoot,” epic cake designer Linda Caro said, “I really liked how they were so organized and knew exactly what shots they wanted to capture. The whole team was awesome and friendly.
“Bheau View Ranch was absolutely gorgeous,” Caro said. “Any bride would be happy to have her wedding there. Any place there that you take a photo, the photo would have amazing background and scenic beauty.”
Wedding video guru Dillan Stockham took time out between shots saying he enjoyed working with Riach thanks to her efficiency and aesthetic eye which were easy to translate into video.
“Bheau View Ranch was a gorgeous venue,” Stockham said. “It has lots of greenery and a spectacular altar of interwoven branches delicately covered in vines. I particularly loved the beautiful, spacious house on the property; it is an amazing prep location for both the bride and groom, which isn’t common. I couldn’t have asked for a better location.”
The Ranch “sits on a 10-acre knoll offering a unique setting for your wedding and any related event,” Riach said. “Think about your engagement session, shower or luncheon with your wedding attendants, rehearsal dinner, day-after brunch, and more.”
The ranch also features over 10,000-square-feet of divisible outdoor event space with ranch-style and garden-style settings. Landscaped vibrant lawns with abundant flowers and numerous plants and trees along with mountain views conspires to create the perfect backdrop for ceremonies and receptions.
An inviting 2-bedroom, 3-bathroom country cottage complete with amenities and stylish decor rounds out the package, available for wedding party preparations or even extended stays.
