Abby and Bryan’s fall wedding was laced with rustic charm, warm colors, and wooded scenery. Canyon Run Ranch was the perfect setting for a relaxed, yet elegant, wedding.
The day started with Bryan and his groomsmen getting ready on-site. The groom’s joyous demeanor made for an easy and fun photo shoot. After the groom and his groomsmen had channeled their inner GQ models, we headed over to Abby’s dressing room. After her bridesmaids and mother helped Abby into her dress and hook on her veil, the bride headed to see her dad for the first time. What a moment. The bride’s father was smiling ear to ear, almost bursting with happiness for his daughter. After a tearful first-look between Abby and her father, the bride and her bridesmaids laughed and cheered (for the Buckeye’s)throughout their entire photo session.
As the ceremony approached, the guests weaved through the woods to find their seats on hay barrels amidst the perfect fall day. Bryan waited at the make-shift altar to see Abby coming down the isle. We have photographed countless grooms, but Bryan’s reaction to seeing his bride walking toward him was something we will never forget. His love, excitement, and utter happiness was felt by each person there……I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house. After an incredible ceremony that had everyone laughing and crying, the couple walked blissfully into the woods as newly-weds.
After their formal photo shoot, that was crashed by one of the ranch’s roosters!!!, it was time for the reception. The simple barn was glittered with Christmas lights, impressive floral arrangements, elegant table settings, and an extravagant dessert table. The atmosphere the couple created through the ambiance of the venue and their extremely energetic spirits forced every wedding guest to dance the night away.
