Styled Social San Luis Obispo: Smoke & Amber Wedding Inspiration at Higuera Ranch

bride and groom share a moment during their wedding ceremony

What do you get when you combine deep amber hues with cloudy smoke accents? Pure. Magic. And that’s exactly what our Styled Social San Luis Obispo boasts from start to finish. A breezy meadow in Central California sets the stage for modern romance, and from the high slit wedding dress to the bubbly bar cart to the textured pillar candles, it did not disappoint. We think a Beatles medley pairs well with the images to come, so put a record on, settle in and prepare to be absolutely stunned.

Have an inkling these timeless images were captured on film? You’d be right! Ruffled member + Styled Social attendee, This Love of Yours has a true gift for capturing that which is poetic. If the phrase emotional heirlooms speaks to your soul, you’re sure to find happy here.

If ever a dynamic duo existed in the design world, it would be Going Steady Studios and Wild Heart Events whose relaxed, yet vibrant approach to creative styling has our hearts beating faster every time. We’re pretty blown away by the scenes they breathed life into here, from the floral crescent ceremony backdrop to the cozy-meets-mod lounge that gives Anthro Home a run for its money.

Our bride, Cassidy, is radiant in a sexy Tara Lauren gown from Moondance Bridal with enough layered fabric + volume to cause the winds to change.

One of our top go-to’s for menswear on the wedding day is Stitch & Tie, so it’s only natural we looked to them to provide a tailored gray suit complete with accessories and snazzy shoes. Who else is eyeing that handsome velvet bowtie?

Are these engagement rings from RockHer Haute Jewels glorious or what? An online retailer creating bespoke engagement rings for brides-to-be worldwide and we’re high-key obsessed with their inventory of *ahem* over 60,000 diamonds! Starting with the Dylan pictured above from their artisan halo collection.

We can hardly be chill over the tabletop decor from borrowed BLU and Onyx and Redwood. Crystal etched and smoke blown stemware, matte plates, cloud-dipped utensils… boy, are we hooked on a feeling.

Of course, these pieces were the perfect match for the rich, textured table linen from LLuxe Linen.

And then there’s the epic cocktail lounge with funky chairs, rattan poufs, mid-century furniture and plush, neutral pillows from Avenue Twelve Rentals and Party Pleasers Event Rental Co. Which of course was leveled up even further by the petite champagne cart from Three On The Tree.

I have to say, Higuera Ranch must be the pride and joy of central California with it’s twisty oak trees, sprawling vineyard terrain, golden meadows and countryside views. The perfect balance of natural and contemporary.

Hello, detail shots! We’ve got a bit of a soft spot for styled flatlays, particularly when they include artisan ring boxes from Voeu du Coeur and The Mrs. Box, hand-dyed ribbons from Tono & Co. and rich, textured surfaces from Locust Collection. Stop. Drop. And flatlay!

So much adoration for the cake that stole a thousand hearts. Bread Basket Cake Company has us craving more square tiered confections, and we’d be willing to bet you are too.
