Today’s real wedding, brought to us by Ashley of A. Blake Photography, is full of vintage inspired details and takes place in an absolutely idyllic setting! Here’s Ashley to tell us more:

The Santa Margarita Ranch never disappoints in hosting an incredible wedding AND reminding me how much I love being a wedding photographer. There are so many areas to sneak away for pictures, as well as, to escape the North County heat.

See more after the cut!





Mark and Megan were such a blessing to work with and truly know how to celebrate. Having a first look before the ceremony, we were able to get the bulk of the pictures out of the way in order to allow for Mark and Megan to enjoy their cocktail hour and train ride. Oh how I love the Santa Margarita Ranch Train!






I have ridden it more times than I can remember and I always act like it’s my first. The views it provides and the entertainment for guests truly makes weddings at the Ranch stick out in everyone’s mind. Thank you, Mark and Megan, for being a couple who celebrates big and laughs hard…you both are amazing!







Congratulations Megan & Mark and thank you Ashley for sharing! For more information about A. Blake Photography, please visit her website.
