Leo Carrillo Ranch Wedding in Carlsbad, CA – Jack and Beth

December 11, 2015

Jack and Beth tied the knot at this fabulous (former working) ranch in Carlsbad, California called Leo Carrillo Ranch (named after famous Leopoldo Antonio Carrillo).  Once you arrive onsite, you’d never know you’re in the middle of a city.  Welcomed by flocks of peacocks, tons of beautiful cactus and trees, adobe buildings, and a reflecting pool, this property sits on 27 acres!
Jack and Beth loved the idea of a ranch wedding and decided on this venue as their perfect destination!  Now it was time to start planning and designing their special day!  We started with a palette of colors to go with the natural beauty of the venue – greens, marsala, creams, and blush with pops of navy blue as accent pieces.  Enjoy these stunning photos by Leah D’Ambrosia.  We are also so honored to have this gorgeous wedding recently featured in Wedding Chicks Blog.
