SHEEP DREAMS…
At one of my happiest places on earth. Anyone who has followed the La Vida blog for some time knows what a special place Reves de Moutons is. Rachel and Renee knew that the first time they visited a few years ago for their farmstay. So when the time was right and they decided to tie the knot, they knew without a doubt that this was the perfect place for their Paso Robles farm wedding, surrounded by the herd and overlooking the rolling foothills of the Central Coast. mom helps bride get into dress at paso robles farm wedding They decided to get ready together, with a different kind of first look that still gave each of them some special time with their moms during the final touches of getting ready for the wedding day on the farm.

AMAZING and fitting since Rachel is a music therapist.
