Christine + Ryan's Wedding

Christineryan feat

"Although it seems most girls dream of their wedding day, it wasn't until more recently that I started dreaming of a wedding weekend,” Christine, today's Wedding Wednesday bride, explained candidly. "The idea of extending the celebrations and getting even more time with friends and family sounded exponentially better.

"From the custom infinity-edge pool to the private spring-fed lake, the ten acres that Desert Ridge Estate offered immediately caught our eyes, and we knew it would be the perfect spot to celebrate our big weekend. Our entire bridal party crew, including bridesmaids, groomsmen, plus-one's and parents were all able to stay at the estate from Friday to Monday — about 30 guests total. It was a BIG weekend.

"Sure we had our rehearsal, rehearsal dinner and the wedding, but we also had the Super Bowl and Valentine's Day to celebrate, so the weekend was full of love, drinking and eating, pool time and games...and we were lucky enough to have our videographer film the entire weekend!

“The wedding day was, naturally, the best day of our lives. We had about 150 guests in attendance and we went for simple, neutral, modern, and a splash of boho — but the venue didn't need us to do much, since it was already stunning on its own.

"We shared our vows privately at our first look for a special moment between just us two, had a short but sweet and perfect ceremony courtesy of our good friend Nick Gonzalez, and then it was time for drinks and dancing, followed by lots of delicious food and my personal favorite — the pasta bar.

"We perfectly ended the night all embraced in a big circle singing along to Feels Like Home by Chantal Kreviazuk — How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days soundtrack, if you know, you know.”

Wedding weekend goals, anyone? Congratulations to Christine and Ryan!
