Walker Creek Ranch Wedding, Daed and Erik

 Daed and Erik are a striking couple with terrific style – their wedding was 100% a reflection of their personalities, a weekend long celebration with all of their closest friends at Walker Creek Ranch in California. Their ceremony was held in a fairy-light lit barn, at the reception booze, food, and a lot of music brought everyone out onto the dance floor – especially the kids. The weekend brought one of the biggest storms of an already wet winter, but no one was deterred and this was one of the most heartfelt parties I’ve ever documented.

Rings are by Thorston, and the glittery mini-cupcakes (including vegan and gluten-free options) by Angel Cakes. I sampled.. one or two of them. They were delicious.

2017, what a start. I’ve been doing a lot of rage baking, focusing on personal work and getting a big project off the ground.

More about that soon.

There are more wedding photos coming, but in the meantime, I spent a rainy afternoon preserving lemons. One jar of Meyer lemons from a friend’s dramatically over-productive tree, and one jar of gorgeous organic ones my neighbor dropped off the same day we harvested 20 lbs of Meyers because clearly we needed more lemons. Recipe via the maestro himself, David Lebovitz.
