Recently, I had the honor of photographing a Rancho Valencia Sunrise Patio reception for local wedding planners. Festively-themed, this gorgeous cocktail hour and dinner will be sure to get you in the holiday spirits!

Rancho Valencia Sunrise Patio Cocktail Hour

Guests were greeted with cocktails from the gorgeous plaid bar by To Be Designed. The bar setup was placed inside of an open air cabana structure draped in sheer fabric. As a result, the atmosphere felt cozy and intimate. For relaxing, a lounge decorated in fall jewel tones allowed guests to sit back and enjoy the warmth from the fireplace. Jillian of To Be Designed beautifully paired the neutrals of the bar and property with the stunning colors within the lounge.

Rancho Valencia Dinner Reception

Inside the room attached to the Sunrise Patio, a long farm table set the scene for the dinner. Flowers by Annette Gomez decorated the table with a runner of various pumpkins. The pumpkins were paired with small, organic arrangements of flowers, fruit, and moss to create a homey garden vibe for the reception. The catering team at Rancho Valencia served a delicious menu of four courses and lots of wine. I truly had the best time!

A huge thank you to Rancho Valencia for having me photograph this gorgeous event at their property. I consider it one of my favorite venues in San Diego and adore shooting there.
