Stemple Creek Ranch is a beautiful and sprawling ranch set amongst the rolling hills of western Marin County https://www.marincounty.org near the town of Tomales. This venue is stunning and has a little something for everyone be it open pasturelands, rocky outcroppings, rustic barns, or quaint historic homes. I was fortunate enough to get to enjoy a little bit of everything during this magical day with these two beautiful souls.
The day started out with some quiet getting ready moments in the two private guest cottages.
Quiet until the grooms daughter arrived, and then the celebration really began!
There are several potential ceremony sites on the property, but this weddings was in the most beautiful setting of them all up on the hill in a grove of eucalyptus tress.
After the vows I was lucky enough to steal them away for a few moments to capture some couples portraits. We stayed up on the hill and played within the eucalyptus grove, on this gorgeous rock formation, and in the rolling hills of Marin County, CA.
We started making our way down the hill towards the gorgeous reception area, but we couldn’t help but snap a few more images on the way!
We arrived back with their entire wedding party just at the perfect time as the sun was starting to set and the flower girls as well as the rest of the guests were ready to eat, drink, toast, and dance the remainder of the evening away.
In terms of scenic venues with an old school West Marin and Sonoma County vibe you really couldn’t find anything more beautiful. The entire crew at Stemple Creek Ranch were amazing to work with and the day went smoothly from start to end.
