This Spanish Oaks Ranch wedding was the perfect blend of elegance and nature. There’s never a shortage of amazing photo locations at the ranch and no matter how many times I’m there, I’ll find a new and exciting spot for that perfect wedding photo.
Getting Ready Photos
The bride got ready at Spanish Oaks Ranch in the bridal suite which is located upstairs in the main barn. Her bridesmaids were with her as well as her mom, who helped her get ready.
The bridesmaids loved seeing the bride for the first time. Since her mom had helped her get into her wedding dress, none of the bridesmaids had seen her in it yet. There were smiles all around and few happy tears.
The bride’s dad was beaming with pride when he saw his daughter in her wedding dress.
The groom waited patiently while the bride snuck up behind him for the big reveal. He was so happy to finally see his beautiful bride!
After the first looks, it was time to add the final touches before the ceremony. The bridesmaids made sure the dress was just perfect. The bride’s mom attached the veil.
The ceremony took place at one of Spanish Oaks Ranch’s ponds, just a short walk from the barn. The pond has a beautiful deck overlooking the amazing landscape, so it was the perfect location for the ceremony.
Formal Wedding Photos
After the ceremony, we headed out for some photos of the bride and groom. There were so many incredible locations to choose from and it was difficult to keep it just one hour! We kept things fairly close to the barn, but we did venture out to one of the open fields with some beautiful oak trees.
This couple came with their very own surprise…a fully restored VW bus. The brand new paint job was finished just in time for the wedding and they wanted to make sure we included this gem in the wedding photos. I’m so glad they did! This was a once in a lifetime opportunity!
The reception was so much fun! The bride and groom never left the dance floor and every guest had smile.
This was really an incredible wedding in so many ways. I absolutely fell in love with this family and I just love how kind and genuine they all are. Spanish Oaks Ranch was amazing to photograph at the couple is absolutely gorgeous. I’m so excited for what the future holds for these two amazing people and I’m so honored that they chose me to be a part of their wedding day.
