River Highlands Ranch {Stylized Shoot}

Well you have heard me build up to our stylized shoot then gush over how great it went. The photos are in and I am so excited how it turned out. These shoots are so fun because as a team we were able to create so many fun elements that hopefully inspire all of you.

Welcome to River Highlands Ranch, our view and blank canvas for the day.





Details, details, details!

Working with Forever Vintage Rentals is a dream. We created a coffee bar! It is a great design piece to included in your big day as well as providing something for you guests! I love all of the design concepts out right now, but I really feel like everything needs to have a purpose. What goes with coffee…treat!

Emly and Alex are so sweet together. You can create so much for a shoot but not the connection the two of them have.

No guest can leave without taking a token to remember the special day. Baby redwoods were the favor in this day. To take, plant, love on and let love take root!

Happy Monday! Well we had a very busy weekend. I had the privilege to work with some incredible people to create a unique and beautiful wedding shoot. I cannot wait to share with you all the images and stories from the shoot but today I thought I would highlight the talented folks that helped. Today we will start with…

River Highlands Ranch


This was the back drop for our beautiful shoot. When you drive on their property your blood pressure drops and you are in awe of the land. Rolling green hills, gravel pathways, vineyards and a beautifully designed barn that looks out on the 600 acres. RHR is designed perfectly for an event. From the design work you can do in the barn to the fun elements you can bring in because you truly have a blank canvas. One of my favorite additions is the duck pond cabin. This cozy little cabin sits on a beautiful stream, has a fire place, darling kitchen, bathroom and large bed.

It’s a perfect spot for after you say I do. I love working with Juanita, she knows the property and it’s capabilities so well and is so helpful. You can find more information and pictures at http://riverhighlandsranch.com.
