“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” -Helen Keller
Never have two people lived a quote more. Adventure is what these two do! From Lake Arrowhead, to Mammoth, to their Reptacular Ranch wedding, adventure is obviously an important part of their lives.
For Layla and Steve, the laid back vibe of their wedding day was evident right from the start. When we arrived at the house for some getting ready photos, Layla and Steve were already bucking traditions and doing their thing by getting ready together. Some things just make sense and a laid back wedding starring Layla and Steve just makes perfect sense.
Right when we arrived at this Reptacular Ranch wedding, everyone was gathering with the animals and the alpacas were the stars of that moment. Then it was ceremony time and Pegasus, the miniature horse, and Steve headed down the aisle. With Layla joining them, the ceremony was under way. With personal heartfelt vows and so many laughable moments, this ceremony was just perfect.
As the reception kicked off, so did the impending rain with conveniently let up just long enough for everyone to gather and witness these two wed. Inside, the Moroccan Bohemian vibe mixed with the sense of adventure and it just felt like the right space for Layla and Steve.
With a relationship that began over a piano, it seemed totally appropriate for these two to skip a first dance for a first duet with the Karaoke Band. It was such a special moment. Then the band opened up for everyone to sing their favorite tunes and fun found its new home at this Reptacular Ranch wedding.
One tradition these two did keep was Steve’s family’s Norwegian Kransekake. A Norwegian cake made up of rings that the newlyweds “cut” but separating the rings and the number of rings they remove equal the number of children they will be blessed with. With seven rings, this will be a big adventure loving family that will have soooo many amazing stories to tell.
But first, this story. Enjoy Layla and Steve’s rustic Moroccan Bohemian Reptacular Ranch Wedding photos:
