Chris & Lauren’s Spruce Mountain Ranch Wedding

November 9, 2016

Filed in: Weddings

Life is full of stories. The best stories and the stories that you wish never had to happen. It’s always a surprise. As I sit here today and think about the past 5 years, so much has happened that I couldn’t have even dreamt. And that’s how life goes, isn’t it? The surprises, the twists, the turns. They don’t stop. Because it’s the stories in life that keep things interesting. The stories are what keep tomorrow exciting and keeps yesterday worth remembering.

But even more important, is who you experience those stories with. When you find that person – that one who you want to be by your side through all life throws at you – you hang on tight. And no matter what story is next, good or bad, you never let them go. Because in the end – life is unpredictable, but love is a constant.

Lauren & Chris – I hope you continue to live your stories with the laughter and joy that has brought you this far!

Lauren’s bridesmaid dresses were unreal. They each had their own character, but coordinated so great together.

Lauren and Chris wanted to save their first look for their ceremony, so they opted for a prayer together around a corner. Lauren’s bridesmaid said a prayer over them as they clinched hands.

And that look on Chris’s face…says it all.

I adore how these two used eucalyptis leaves to decorate. So simple and elegant.

One of the best parts of a Spruce Mountain Ranch wedding? Dancing outside under the stars.

To the Groomsman in the middle – I’m sorry. I couldn’t help but post this. Your dancing skills, they’re fantastic 😉
