Elegant Homestead at Wilshire Ranch Wedding

Cara and Joseph | The Homestead at Wilshire Ranch, Oak Glen

Last weekend Cara and Joseph celebrated their love with an elegant wedding at the Homestead at Wilshire Ranch in Oak Glen. Cara looked absolutely stunning in her gorgeous wedding gown from Blush Bridal Couture. I don't think Joseph took his eyes off her for a moment, and I know he never stopped smiling the entire day!

How did you find your wedding venue and why did choose it? 

A friend of ours found the venue online and we picked it because we wanted an outdoor, rustic wedding.

Cara, what did you enjoy most about your wedding day?

The engergy! Everyone was having so much fun. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect, and of course, marrying the man of my dreams

Joe, what did you enjoy most about your wedding day?

The bride. The speeches. The people. The venue was beautiful also... just everything I guess? It was amazing.

Joe, what did you think about the First Look?

 I thought I was the luckiest man alive and I felt pure love...

Tell us a fun or interesting fact about you as a couple?

When we met 3 years ago, we knew we were meant for each other instantly. But the timing wasn’t right so we went back to our exs for about 2 years. Then once we realized how dumb we were being (lol), we fell back in love and the rest is history.

What advice would you give future brides and grooms when it comes to wedding planning?

 Find a venue that has a package deal to where the planning is way less stressful! I don’t know what we would have done if we had to do everything ourselves!

Describe your wedding with 3 words

Beautiful, Godfilled, energetic

Your wedding cake flavor(s)

Vanilla with strawberry filled and the other I can’t remember because to be honest, the only cake I got to enjoy was when we fed it to each other lol. Didn’t even get a chance to eat my own cake haha

What was the name of the song for your first dance and why did you choose it?

Cinema by Gary Go because we just loved the words and felt like it was perfect for the both of us

Why did you choose Carrie Vines Photography?

Was recommended by the venue we chose, looked her work up online and fell in love with her work! We are so glad she was apart of our special day :)

Any other vendors you might want to give a shout out to?
