Here at Blackstone Rivers Ranch, fall is always a stunning time to have a wedding.
Emily and Risschie made the most of the fabulous weather and changing leaves. Emily was the kind of bride who leaves everyone smiling. She made everyone involved in the wedding day feel relaxed and calm. Not only was she calm and kind, but she had us in stitches all night long laughing along to her jokes.
The couple had two children together (at the time of their marriage) that were a major part of the wedding day. While their daughter wore a purple lace dress, their son wore a blue suit. Both their son and daughter were a part of the day but their little boy couldn’t sit back during the ceremony. He is featured in almost every photo of the ceremony.
This intimately sized wedding was truly perfect. They celebrated their marriage by having both a Hindu and a Christian ceremony. They decorated our simplistic ceremony location by hanging tulle from one pine tree to another and decorating the concrete slab with lanterns. The beauty of this ceremony spot, which backs up to one of the creeks on property, was brought to life with the use of real flower petals thrown onto the couple during their ceremony.
The flowers for this fall wedding were anything but understated. Fluorescence Flowers designed a breathtaking bouquet for the bride with pops of pink, purple, orange and blue. During the ceremony the bride and groom placed malas, Hindi for garland, around each other’s necks. These garlands tied back to the fall floral theme with orange carnations and red roses. You can see these stunning pieces on the back of the bride and groom’s chairs in the following photos.
Due to the size of this stunning wedding, Emily and Risschie utilized both our banquet rounds and our long rustic banquet tables that were handmade by the owner. The rounds were decorated with a simple ivory tablecloth and a mixture of vases of varying sizes. This mixture gave even more texture and natural beauty to our sail cloth tent, where we host wedding receptions. The rustic tables were decorated with a garland of greenery and the varying vases, once again, bringing the outdoors in.
Once the sun went down and dancing began, this group really came to play. The photographer, Cassie Rosch, took full advantage of the lights that line the inside of the tent. They glistened as toasts were made but they popped even more as Cassie captured photos of the guest dancing. You can see the motion blur in the picture featuring Emily and Risschie kissing on the dance floor.
