tamara + russell | san diego wedding planner | leo carillo ranch wedding

Tamara and Russell were such a fun couple- they never took things too seriously and just truly took the time to enjoy eachother and their friends and family on their wedding day.  I had a wonderful time working at Leo Carillo Ranch, where in happened to be peacock mating season!  As you may or may not know, the Ranch has tons of peacocks that roam freely, which is super unique and really fun for the guests. While they are immensely fun and interesting, you never know what they're going to do (like take a bite of wedding cake, for instance!).  We truly enjoyed getting pictures of them and listening to them all night.  This is the only venue like this anywhere in San Diego, so if you are going for unique, you must go take a look at Leo Carillo.

In going along with the rustic feel of the Ranch, Tamara decided on a "Fiesta Ranch" theme, complete with paper flowers, Mexican (vegetarian/pescatarian Mexican food- YUM!!!) food, churros (YUM again), Mexican soda, and signs in Spanish.  She carried every detail throughout the whole wedding, and it really made an impact!  They even made cardboard cutouts of their chihuahuas for the photobooth :)  Thank you Tamara and Russell for allowing us to be a special part of your wedding day!
