Shortly after being engaged on Valentine's Day, my sister, Bill and I took a trip down to Stevinson Ranch for the very first time as we heard nothing but good, fun things about it. We also heard the golf course was fabulous! (Bill, being a golfer, just loves it!) Thanks to meeting Megan Hansen, she helped us visualize how beautiful an outdoor wedding ceremony could be near the 18th hole with a reception to follow in the Pavilion. Being from San Francisco, we loved the country feel of Stevinson Ranch, and said let's book it!
Everyone was extremely accommodating to our planning needs. We went down a few times to make sure everything was in place, and we never had to worry about a thing. Unfortunately, the awful fire happened, but we decided to go forward as planned. The way the staff came together to make up for losses was incredible. That really eased our minds.
We had a big Irish contingency of about 245 people down for the wedding. We started the festivities with a golf tourny the Friday before the wedding. What a great way to enjoy friends and have some laughs in the sun!
The actual wedding day was spectacular - about 80 degrees at 4 pm and an amazing sunset to follow. Our guests loved the way we had the Pavilion set up with lights, lanterns, candles and a great dance floor where many of us got up and did an Irish jig throughout the night!
Our family and wedding party friends took up all of the cottages, so we continued the party at the pool the next day with a big BBQ. It was so nice to see George stop by to congratulate us that afternoon.
Usually, there are little things that go wrong the day of the wedding, but I cannot think of one - Our day was a dream come true! To all of the folks at Stevinson's… We thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Our friends and family are already planning to come back next year for a one-year anniversary party!
Love, Ellen & Bill Teahan
I just wanted to send you a quick THANK YOU for everything on Saturday. Everything was beautiful and couldn’t have been more perfect! It was so nice for me to not worry about anything on Saturday and just be able to enjoy everything with our family and friends, and that’s exactly what I did. Taryn was beautiful and the rest of the wedding party was too (my daughter Krista especially), and I’ve had many compliments on how gorgeous everyone and everything looked!! Also, we received many compliments on the food, which unfortunately I didn’t get to eat much of. Thanks again for all your help and I will definitely be spreading the word on Stevinson as a great wedding venue.
