Leo Carillo Ranch Wedding (11)

Colleen & Mark got married at the wonderful outdoor Leo Carillo Ranch in Carlsbad. Colleen is a co-worker and good friend of my wife, Linnea who helped with Wedding Coordinator duties and I provided DJ/MC Services.  It was touching to see all of the hard work everyone put into the big day come together flawlessly from every angle!   The outdoor ranch style venue was a perfect setting for Colleen and Mark – both outdoor lovers!

The ceremony was held on the upper patio next to the Hacienda.  The crazy peacocks were busy with their calls throughout the ceremony (and reception).  Another friend/co-worker of Colleen’s, Noemi, officiated the ceremony.  Following the ceremony, guests moved to the lawn and pool area for cocktails and then to the lower patio for dinner and the rest of the reception.  Overall, it was perfect – great venue/setting, lots of family and friends and good times had by all, especially on the dancefloor 😉  We were both honored to help Colleen and Mark make this day and night extra memorable!

Here’s a quote from the kind thank you card that Colleen and Mark sent after the wedding:

Thank you very much for the “entertainment” & coordination of the wedding! You both have been a pleasure to work with!
