Classy Chic Western Wedding Wows at Peachtree Ranch
Peachtree Ranch in King City bridged the worlds of western and classy chic, creating the perfect backdrop for Katie Rice to marry her childhood crush, Lee Whitney. Bride Katie’s wedding visions had always featured a wide-open space adorned with twinkling lights, something she and groom Lee were able to make a reality with their dazzling outdoor setup, featuring handcrafted elements built by Lee. After losing her mother five years ago, Katie paid homage to her memory throughout the day by including pictures of her at the ceremony, having her mother’s friends in attendance and adorning her bridal gown with a string of her mother’s pearls. With a striking color palette centered around the bridesmaids’ rust-colored velvet dresses, the event was imbued with warm, earthy tones and stunning complementary floral arrangements. Officiated by a close friend of the couple, the ceremony effortlessly embraced an intimate atmosphere despite a large crowd, melding both somber and light-hearted elements. Katie’s close friend Becci Londo designed a unique dessert bar that featured personalized cookies, cupcakes, macaroons and other sweet treats. A rustic photo booth and wooden signage gave a nod to the couple’s country roots. Katie’s customized “Mrs. Whitney” jean jacket, made by her bridesmaid Annie Biglow, added a whimsical country accent to her reception dress, perfectly complementing rancher Lee’s cowboy hat. Combining the couple’s love for nature, rustic and traditional elements worked in perfect cohesion for this bold outdoor event, and the night really was the perfect way for Katie’s childhood crush to become her lifelong husband.
