We’re known for our breathtaking experiences here at Blackstone Rivers Ranch, but all of the scenery seemed to completely bypass Shawn as he caught his first glimpse of Sara. The world at an utter standstill, he watched with glistening eyes as she glided toward him in her beautiful lace wedding gown. Her train elegantly streaming behind her as she slowly made her way past family and friends to her soon-to-be husband.
A small, intimate gathering was exactly what these two lovebirds had in mind for their special day. They maximized the venue space for a breathtaking and yet simple affair. Immediately seizing the opportunity to welcome the surrounding woodland, the twinkling lights, and the bustling creek to make their wedding day dreams come true, they added small bouquets of sunflowers with little white blossoms to enhance the surrounding beauty.
With shaky voices full of emotion they promised their love and devotion to one another. Lacing their hands together, their eyes locked on one another, they made their way back down the aisle. Together, amid a jumble of cheers and good wishes from everyone, they began their lives as one.
With visions of dark green dresses swirling about the dance floor, with the help of the groom’s dashing groomsmen, Shawn swept his bride to the middle of the floor. The soft glow of the lanterns flickering, they shared a private moment completely alone despite the number of family and friends that gathered about dancing and enjoying the evening.
Resolute that every moment should be captured, many guests, as well as the bride and groom ,didn’t hesitate to snap picture after picture on a polaroid cameras the couple used as a guest book. Even as they blasted through an aisle of well-wishers cheering and blowing bubbles as the happy couple departed. The two sharing a dramatically romantic kiss amid a kaleidoscope of bubbles and soft light.
