Although they didn’t date then, Katie and Ryan actually went to high school together! They ran in the same baseball/softball friend circles but ultimately, went their separate ways. As fate would have it, ten years later, they ran into each other through a mutual friend and the rest is, as they say, history.
These two knew Saddlerock Ranch was “the one” (aka the venue for them) when on one of their Malibu wine tours. Upon hearing they host weddings, Ryan knew this is where he wanted to marry Katie. Awww. It’s actually the perfect spot for both of them because Ryan loves animals and Katie loves wine! After last year’s devastating fires in Malibu, it was amazing to see that Saddlerock Ranch hasn’t lost any of its beauty and Stanley the giraffe is still as friendly as ever. Most of all, we are so happy that these two were able to have the most perfect wedding day and invited us to be a part of it all. We simply had a blast celebrating with these two and their amazing friends and family. Congrats Katie and Ryan!
