Bohemian Inspired Wedding at La Lomita Ranch
Raven Bouregy and Collin Snyder’s intimate 20-person wedding was filled with elegance and meaningful touches for guests and the couple alike. Originally planning to elope, the couple decided to expand their nuptials at La Lomita Ranch to include close family and friends. Inspiration was taken from the stunning natural beauty of the working ranch, and the celebration featured a blend of natural and bohemian décor. Florals in muted, neutral tones and in minimalist arrangements enhanced the décor. Raven’s showstopping gown was custom-made by Ivana Čizmadija in Croatia and featured monstera lace and long, draping sleeves, perfectly suited to the Spanish architecture and blooming greenery of La Lomita Ranch. Bringing their long-standing love of Polaroid instant photos to their wedding day, Raven and Collin had a Polaroid picture station set up, resulting in dozens of joyous Polaroids from their guests. For the months preceding the wedding, Raven, her mother and mother-in-law found 30 antique and vintage goblets, each completely distinctive from the others. Guests were able to choose a goblet to use during the event and take home later as a keepsake. Tying in family traditions, Raven wore a Turkish gold medallion that had been passed down through the women in her family for more than a century.
