LAURA & JAKE in Ukiah » Yokayo Ranch Wedding / by Vivian Chen

Laura and Jake are one of my chillest and most stylish couples I know. The plan for their wedding was to ignore all the stuffy traditions and just get a good group of their favorite people together for a fun weekend away. Yokayo Ranch in Ukiah was the perfect venue for this. Their families and wedding party stayed with them on the ranch, which made getting ready on the day of just a continuation of the weekend festivities. Since both Jake and Laura work in the restaurant industry (Jake owns Hardwood Bar & Smokery in San Francisco), I knew that they would pull out all the stops for their meal and they did not disappoint. After dinner, the guests were treated to delicious dessert and a bud bar with personalized prerolls. My favorite part of the day was Laura and Jake’s dog Frank. He was with them every step of the day, from first look to walking down the aisle and sitting with them for the ceremony to partying on the dance floor. He’s so beloved that they even made enamel pins and personalized homemade hot sauce in his honor. Truly the best wedding pup ever!
