October weddings in California are what dreams are made of and this Long Branch Farms wedding was definitely a dreamy one. I was so excited that my last wedding of the year ended in California in a little coastal town. The morning started out foggy and drizzly but by the afternoon we were drenched in that gorgeous golden light. Opting to take advantage of California’s sun and coastal views JM and Michael’s first look and bridal party photos took place on an oceanside cliff. I love when wind makes an appearance during photos, especially when a veil is involved. The combination of those two things is magical. JM and Michael have such a sweet group of friends and I loved getting to witness just how much they all adore JM and Michael. After soaking up the sun and getting to play in the wind we headed over to Long Branch Farms for their ceremony. If you haven’t been to Long Branch Farms you’re missing out. It’s an eclectic venue with an Old West vibe and the venue provides such a fun atmosphere for its guests. From gambling in the saloon to dancing in the Grand Parlor, there is no shortage of activities for guests to enjoy and it was clear that JM and Michael’s guests had an absolute blast. This space was decorated so beautifully. The soft grey color palette with pops of burgundy were perfect fall colors and added a touch of elegance to the rustic space. It was a perfect day and I loved ending this year’s wedding season with JM and Michael’s Long Branch Farms wedding. These loves threw the best party and I was so honored to be there to document it.
