Alexa and Matt’s wedding was elegant and rustic chic. Tucked away in Carmel, CA at Mission Ranch Hotel is 22 acres of beautiful landscape, including a pasture with sheep, a beautiful barn, a local’s favorite restaurant, and expansive hotel that all overlook the pristine blue Pacific Ocean.
First, Alexa’s gown has this classical cathedral veil that blew gently in the wind as she walked down the ceremony aisle. After the ceremony, she switched out her veil for these soft and romantic floral crowns for her reception.
Next, rose gold chairs, long candles, and a soft color scheme from Chic Event Rentals filled the barn reception. Above the tables were floral chandeliers and low hanging Edison light bulbs. Fleur Du Soliel created all the incredible florals.
An escort card wall greeted guests as they entered the reception. Each of their names hung on a string, which directed them to their assigned table. Many guests were gasping in awe at how entrancing the reception was by Robin Sevrina Events. The room filled with warmth and love all evening; tears were shed during the speeches, and Alexa and Matt were beaming throughout the night.
Special Wedding Moments
One of the most remarkable moments of the day was when Alex and Matt had their first look. It was such an emotional moment for each of them; they were about to marry their best friend.
Unique Wedding Details
Their wedding venue had sheep grazing the property, so Alexa and Matt i
- The Wedding Cake
- Sweet Rebas created a wedding cake that had two sheep as cake toppers and cookies that were in the shape of sheep
- Fun Socks
- Matt and the groomsmen wore socks that had a sheep pattern, and their photo booth had sheep ears for props.
- Sheep in the Ceremony
- All of the sheep flocked to the ceremony site and sat opposite from the audience as if they were watching the wedding, too!
Another notable detail is that Alexa and Matt love their dog, Crosby, but was not able to bring him to the event. Instead, they had a fern set up as decor for the ceremony with a sign in honor of Crosby, which is who their reception cocktails were named after!
