Casual Summer Wedding in Ojai, California

Design*Sponge

In honor of wedding month here on Design*Sponge, were going to be sharing some beautiful weddings. Today we have a beautiful casual summer wedding that was all about friends, family and good food. Nestled in an idyllic valley and surrounded by orange and avocado groves, Ojai, California has long been an escape from nearby busy Los Angeles. It was also bride Vanessa Gates hometown. So when it came time to choose a wedding venue, Vanessa knew she wanted to bring everyone to Ojai. The couple rented out the entire Camp Comfort campground for their casual outdoor wedding. Not only could friends and family stay the night, but the campground also had a full kitchen for meal preparation. Groom Brian Mowell works at Pizzetta 211 in San Francisco so his work colleagues (and friends) created a vegetarian meal that was served family-style at picnic tables.  The ceremony was down by the creek, everyone gathered around in a circle to watch as Vanessas stepfather, Neil Quinn, married the couple. Afterward, they dined under the oak trees, lit by simple white lights, and the evening ended up sparklers by a campfire. (Just this past Sunday, the couple welcomed their first child into the world. Little Odgen Dunsworth Mowell.
