Lovely Beltane Ranch Elopement

Amy & Moe

A Furry Four-legged Filled Elopement at Beltane Ranch

Glen Ellen, California


Beltane Ranch

This was one of those lovely elopements where the humans were far outnumbered by the furry fourlegged occupants at Beltane Ranch in Glen Ellen. Before we had to shelter-in-place, even before the 10 or less rule had gone into effect, Moes’ family joined us in spirit and Amy’s family flew from South Carolina, to witness the vows exchanged under the big oak tree.

After the cake was cut and the bubbly was poured, we spent a relaxing afternoon exploring the ranch and meeting the friendly inhabitants seen on Instagram. We saw fluffy sheep from afar as Rayna and Dottie, their Great Pyrenees protectors kept a watchful eye on us as we strolled through the vineyard. After playing in the olive grove, we passed out carrots to Paisley, Clifford and the Clydesdales. We admired the valley view from the garden and were photobombed by a cat that was far more interested in belly rubs than photos. The farm-friendly tour ended with a bevy of chicks chilling in a camper and meeting, Tagine, the cutest rescue donkey on this side of the Mexican border.

Amy and Moe were finally married, and like most newlyweds, being locked inside together wouldn’t be a hardship. Which is good, because the next morning, life changed pretty drastically. But I’m extremely grateful to have spent the last day of normal surrounded by wonderful people in a small corner of paradise.
