It’s official!  After months of pounding the virtual pavement, we’ve finally found our wedding venue.  We’re getting married September 18th at Rimrock Ranch in Pioneertown, CA!  The big day is Saturday the 18th, but we’ll be having lots of fun activities the day before – so come early and don’t forget your cowboy boots!

I’ve never loved a place more.  The ranch is unbelievably beautiful.  Jim (the owner) is so much fun! – Remind me to send him a thank you note for the hangover.

Here’s a few pics of the property:

Here comes the freezing Bride

That's Jim's cool old truck with the name of his Western Swing Band, "Golden Hill Ramblers" on the side.

There's tons of antique keys hanging from this tree - it's very sweet.

A Joshua Tree

Les, if you look really hard, I think you can see the nearest's right next to that rock. No, not that rock - the other one....
