Romantic Rustic Chic Gathering – Lindsey & Monte

Lindsey and Monte’s love story began all the way back in 9th grade. Although they went to different schools, they were introduced by mutual friends and dated at 14! Many years later, they were brought back together and rekindled the flame. Their first date was at the Dueling Piano in Long Beach, a comedy show musical, with dinner at Duke’s in Huntington overlooking the ocean. Since they had just been friends for so long, they were both nervous to be going out as more than just friends. Despite their nerves, they had an amazing evening together. Their newly rekindled love flame grew and grew, and before long Monte knew he wanted to marry this amazing woman.

Almost two years after that first date, the proposal took place. Lindsey says “Knowing it was one of my favorite places to vacation, Monte planned a trip to Pismo Beach for what I thought was for my 30th birthday. He planned a whole romantic weekend- just the two of us! We ate delicious food together, walked along the beach, went on hikes, went shopping and enjoyed every moment of our getaway weekend together! On Saturday April 22nd, 2017, Monte told me that he found this amazing restaurant overlooking the bluffs. After a great day of hiking and adventures, we got ready for dinner. He had planned for us to get to the restaurant early, which gave us time to walk down below the bluffs before dinner at sunset. There were more people down there with their cameras, so it didn’t occur to me that one of the people taking pictures was for us! Monte and I enjoyed some time by the ocean watching the sunset and then he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! It was absolutely perfect!”

After celebrating the perfect engagement, it was time to start planning their stunning outdoor barn wedding. Lindsey and Monte love being outdoors and really wanted a smaller, quaint location that was local for all of their friends and family. The Red Horse Barn in Huntington Beach, California was exactly what they were looking for, and was the perfect intimate setting to say their “I do”s.

Red Horse Barn’s spacious, green, and sunlight lawn was home to the ceremony site, with a stunning wooden archway altar adorned with blooming florals. The pastel pink, green, and gray color palette added elegant charm to this rustic barn wedding planned by Robyn’s Event Planning.

Lindsey’s bridal look started with a floral lace sweetheart gown, and was perfected with her hair in a natural curl. Her groom, Monte, awaited his bride in a handsome gray suit with a black tie and brown shoes. His groomsmen matched his look, and the bridesmaids created an elegant contrast with blush pink gowns.
