When it comes to wedding planning, there can be a rollercoaster of emotions. Mainly eagerness and joy sprinkled with essential stressors. Joshua and Adora experienced all of these feelings and more while planning their 2020 wedding. They managed to coordinate their destination celebration at Mountain View Ranch by Wedgewood Weddings while across the country during a pandemic.
"Planning our wedding from the other side of the country gave us this feeling that everything would be so stressful and that something would go wrong, but at the time of our wedding, everything fell into place beautifully!"

It's simple to look at Mountain View Ranch and understand why so many couples are drawn toward its beauty. Once intrigued, it's genuinely the efforts and compassion of the team that will seal the deal. The ease of planning and customizing packages allows couples the flexibility to focus on other details - this was the case with Adora and Joshua's destination wedding.
Adora and Joshua tied the knot surrounded by their loved ones, smiles glowing, and jubilant energy throughout the wedding. Although offered with the option to postpone or march on, Adora and Joshua knew their love story must go on. Along with many other couples planning during this time, they had to accept that their guest list would significantly decrease. When they continued to receive an outpouring of love, they knew having their wedding was the right decision.

"Besides the beautiful celebration of our love, the best thing about our wedding is just the people who came to support us and those who helped us make this magical day come true. We had so many doubts throughout this pandemic about whether the wedding will happen or whether people will come to celebrate, so we were delighted and appreciative of everyone who came and supported us." -Adora
