A Rustic Glam Wedding

An August weekend retreat dedicated to painting Mason jars, making centerpieces, making flowers, embellishing bouquets and a lot of brainstorming prepared us.  Sewing machines were humming, fabric was torn, flowers were made, spray cans were in motion and the excitement was building.

Two days before the wedding, some of the same people gathered again at Whitworth Ranch to put the finishing touches on everything.  Tables and chairs were put in place, a wreath was hung on the barn, the chandelier was hung from the tree and lights were strung on the fence.  A charming arbor was created to hover over the cake station and the pumpkins were polished.  Food was prepared, furniture was moved in to create a lounge area, the old tractor was decorated and the "you and me" table was set up with the color palette of oranges and turquoise.



Then we were ready for the bride's father to walk her down the path ...

A beautiful October day and April and Damon were united in marriage surrounded by the love of their family and closest friends.

Their children stood by them as they recited their vows.
I wish I had a penny for Damon's thoughts right here.
The bride nuzzles her groom - as she should.

I believe this little piece of paper makes it official.
What's a wedding without a little cake smashing?
A beautiful afternoon filled with much love and laughter and memories was the perfect beginning to the rest of their lives.  May the two of you live happily ever after.

Billie Long created her magic behind the camera to capture all of these beautiful pictures.

Remember one thing:  YOU matter.  See you next time!
