Dent House Wedding by Kurt Boomer Photography

Aguilar Wedding-103

Feli­cia and Tim had a breath­tak­ing nat­ural and organic wed­ding. Located at the beau­ti­ful Dent House in Matil­ija Canyon Ranch in Ojai, this cou­ple was blessed with some of the most lovely sur­round­ings Ven­tura County has to offer. Their spe­cial day con­sisted of friends, fam­ily, and some cre­ative DIY details. They kept their wed­ding upbeat and fun with a live band and fam­ily DJ. Kurt Boomer was there to pho­to­graph all the smiles and mem­o­ries of this won­der­ful day. Enjoy!

Girl Meets Boy…

Tim and I were set up through mutual friends and met while Tim was still sta­tioned in Hawaii and I was liv­ing in Los Ange­les. We had a long dis­tance rela­tion­ship for about a year, lots of let­ters, phone calls and fre­quent flights to and from the islands. Dur­ing that time, I con­vinced Tim to get a puppy to help cope with the lone­li­ness of being in a long dis­tance rela­tion­ship. We got our dog Kimokeo together when I came to visit Tim in Hawaii and when we decided to get mar­ried; we knew we had to have Kimo with us.

Wed­ding Plan­ning Inspiration…

Our search for the per­fect venue was dif­fi­cult, espe­cially when we knew we wanted some­place that felt like a get­away but close enough to have all our fam­ily and friends join. We knew we wanted to be sur­rounded by nature and Ojai felt like the per­fect place.  We found gor­geous pic­tures of The Dent House on a blog and decided to see it in per­son. When we vis­ited the prop­erty we saw the poten­tial of an amaz­ing wed­ding and Kimo had a blast run­ning around and enjoy­ing the Ranch.

We didn’t really go with a par­tic­u­lar style or theme; we just tried to keep every­thing as organic as pos­si­ble.  I told our florist what I liked and asked her to use flow­ers you could eas­ily find in the sur­round­ing area. I let the brides­maids pick their own dresses and told them to stick to a neu­tral color palette, which is what we did with the “styling” of our tables as well. We really wanted the food, flow­ers and nat­ural sur­round­ings to stand out so we kept things to a min­i­mum. It’s so easy to get wrapped up into what peo­ple think your wed­ding should be like, you have to take a moment and really decide what YOU want it to be and do your best to stick with it.

There was a ton of work involved since we had to bring every­thing in and coor­di­nate every last detail, but our fam­ily and friends all pitched in which really made it a once in a life­time expe­ri­ence. We loved every moment of our wed­ding week­end, from the secluded envi­ron­ment we shared with our guests, to the love that was poured into mak­ing it all come together. We couldn’t have asked for any­thing better.







RADDEST Wed­ding Vendors…

Dana Strom­men, Chef Adam and all the staff were amaz­ing!! The Food and Pho­tog­ra­phy were the most impor­tant to us and Eco Caters really came through with an excel­lent organic menu, a cus­tom made spicy bbq sauce and even helped me jar all the jam favors from a recipe I had pro­vided.  Every­one loved the food and I couldn’t have had a bet­ter expe­ri­ence, they were extremely accom­mo­dat­ing to our every need and always very invit­ing and excited to help make our day run as smoothly as pos­si­bly.  I wish we could have an event every year just to have an excuse to work with them again.

The Get Down Boys play at our local bar ‘Big­foot West’ every Sun­day night and they’re always so much fun to lis­ten to. When we were look­ing for some live music for our wed­ding we knew exactly who we wanted to ask. We met Eddie at my cousins wed­ding the year ear­lier. We had so much fun we just had to have him as our DJ as well. He is now our offi­cial fam­ily DJ!
