Katie and Eric had their wedding at golden and rustic Diablo Ranch in Walnut Creek. They found some vintage decor to add to the ranch to add a touch of rustic elegance. Mt. Diablo is also a special place for Katie and Eric, where they love to ride up the mountains on their road bikes and run and hike around the bucolic hills.

Some words from Katie and Eric:
We were set up by a friend of Katie's mom, who happens to be Eric's parent's neighbor. We are both runners and she saw him running one day and thought we'd be perfect for each other. Our first date was a run around Lafayette Reservoir and that is where we got engaged (on the Rim Trail, above the paved reservoir path).
The dancing, the food, the overall look of our wedding - everything came together with our rustic vision and then how that vision translated into the actual set up. It was beyond our dreams, how everything came together exactly how we wanted it. And the party was amazing! We danced for 3 straight hours and if the dj didn't have to leave at midnight, we would have kept going. Eric and I were in the last car to leave that night. It was amazing and fun and just the best day!
