Colorful Flying Caballos Wedding

What bet­ter way to bring two fam­i­lies together than amidst the beau­ti­ful Fly­ing Cabal­los Ranch nes­tled in the golden hills of Edna Val­ley. This inti­mate San Luis Obispo Wed­ding Venue, just a few miles away from where this cou­ple went on their first of many dates together, allowed sev­eral fam­ily mem­bers to come together, stay on-site, and to cel­e­brate the union of Rudy and Jackie on a sunny Cen­tral Coast day. With a tal­ented team of Wed­ding Pro­fes­sion­als who strive to go above and beyond in every endeavor, Rudy and Jackie feel con­fi­dent that their spe­cial day was just as mag­i­cal as they had ever imag­ined it to be. Thanks to the tal­ent of Michelle War­ren, the cou­ple can relive every enchant­ing moment of their wed­ding day through their beau­ti­fully cap­tured pho­tos. View the whole wed­ding on The Wed­ding Stan­dard Blog!
