Garden Valley Ranch Wedding in Petaluma, CA

This Garden Valley Ranch wedding in Petaluma, California was SO fun! The energy this couple and their guests had throughout the day was amazing and Garden Valley Ranch proved to be the perfect venue for them.

Kelsey and Christian were so playful with each other and their love was so sweet to watch. Kelsey and Christian met on Bumble and had their first date at Cooperage Brewing. He later set up an elaborate proposal at the brewery and whisked her away to a surprise engagement with their friends and family. Talk about a perfect and romantic night! It only makes sense their wedding day would be the same. Learn more about their lovely wedding below!

Garden Valley Ranch Wedding Details

This Garden Valley Ranch wedding of Kelsey and Christian was an event enjoyed by all with several of the guests ready to party. The venue, Garden Valley Ranch, was super low-key and a gorgeous venue filled with flowers everywhere! The weather proved to be a perfect California day. Although I was the only photographer there, but I was still able to capture everything! (Fun fact: I attended high school with their wedding DJ, Travis. We took French together, so it was fun to work with him for Kelsey and Christian’s wedding)

Another fun moment during this Garden Valley Ranch wedding is that the bride, Kelsey, mistakenly wrote the address for the venue wrong on the invites. She wrote “Hidden Valley Ranch” instead of their actually venue Garden Valley Ranch! Someone brought her a bottle of Hidden Valley Ranch, which was hilarious!

As for apparel, I loved Christian’s emerald green jacket he wore. After the ceremony, Kelsey changed into the cutest bell bottoms and white fringed jacket withe the lettering “Mrs. Felter” and she seriously ROCKED the look!
