With the gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean all around them, along with their closest friends and family, Tara and Nick said yes to each other. And then when all was complete, they wined, dined and danced the night away with many more loved ones at the fabulous Hearst Ranch. Ashley Ludaescher captured both - the intimate ceremony and the fun fete after - all in our Vault right this way!

From Ashley Ludaescher... Tara and Nick fell in love during their time spent at Hearst Ranch, so it made perfect sense for them to tie the knot there. They were very lucky to be one of the few special couples to have the chance to celebrate their weddings on the property surrounding Hearst Castle in San Simeon, California. I absolutely love that Tara and Nick were incredibly thoughtful while deciding how to celebrate their wedding day. They chose to have an intimate ceremony with just their families and wedding party and then have an incredible party to celebrate with all of their friends later in the evening.

The ceremony was beautifully decorated by Adornments Flowers & Finery in front of doors which led directly out to the Pacific - the view was incredible! Nick's best friend married them and Tara's two children walked her down the aisle, which made for an incredibly personal and beautiful ceremony.

After the ceremony, we drove through the ranch to a mountaintop for their portraits at the mile long pergola where the Hearst family used to ride their horses, which also had the most spectacular views of the entire central coast and Hearst Castle. It was an incredible and unique wedding celebration, focused on what matters most - dear friends, family and true love.
