As seen in the spring/summer 2017 issue of The Knot magazine.
Two things: First, I’ve clearly been slacking on posting new blog entries, so I’m making up for it by bombarding you with a TON of photos from this wedding.
Second, I often feel redundant when writing these blog posts because the couples with whom we work are so freakin’ fantastic and all I can do is ramble about how awesome they are.
Also, other than the awesomeness rambling, I’m speechless for some of my favorite clients, because I feel SUCH a connection with them that there don’t seem to be words adequate for describing my experience at their wedding.
But here is my feeble attempt for Rachel and Andrew’s Greengate Ranch wedding in early April. I arrived the day before the wedding to meet the couple’s family and bridal party and check out the ceremony rehearsal; the ceremony location was moved indoors because of the rainy day forecast. The stables at Greengate turned out to be a perfect setting for these two to say “I do.” It DID rain during the ceremony (SUCH a good move to have the ceremony indoors), but we were gifted with about an hour of lovely, subdued sunlight for Rachel and Andrew’s first look and portraits — it was perfection.
The couple’s sweet dogs Maya & Ned were present to help celebrate, Rachel and Andrew’s stand-up comedian friend Justin officiated the ceremony, and the photo booth and dance floor were both packed all evening long.
Oh, and did I mention Rachel and Andrew’s circus theme? They totally nailed it. I admitted to them that when someone says to me “vintage circus theme” for a wedding, I’m dubious. But they pulled it together with the right combination of colors, creative props, and the coolest carnival games cocktail hour we ever did see.
I’ll stop chattering now so you can enjoy the goodness that was Rachel and Andrew’s incredible wedding celebration.
