Ashley and Justin met on a blind date in Santa Barbara and haven’t looked back since. They’re getting married next year at the beautiful SAN YSIDRO RANCH, with ALEXANDRA KOLENDRIANOS as their wedding planner. To celebrate their engagement, this gorgeous couple headed to the Ranch for a photo session with KRISTEN BEINKE to capture them in that beautiful Santa Barbara light.
This beautiful shoot by CONNIE WHITLOCK at a picture perfect ranch in the heart of Colorado, just goes to prove that weddings at rustic venues don’t necessarily need to include your typical rustic style decor. They can be elegant and refined and in keeping with the nature that surrounds you as this design by A VINTAGE AFFAIR EVENTS & RENTALS so perfectly demonstrates. With a colour palette of grey, navy and smoky blue, they’ve made the most of the stunning panoramic scenes whilst still incorporating the horses and more rustic elements.
On top of the ceremony location at COLORADO WEDDING VENUE C U LAZY RANCH the views sweep over the lake towards the towering peaks in the background – it really doesn’t get much more romantic than this! A beautiful ring of greenery and florals by EUROPEAN FLOWER SHOP highlights the ceremony spot without competing with the views.

This beautifully simple boudoir shoot in the great outdoors by TAMARA GRUNER PHOTOGRAPHY is so perfectly simple and pays homage to the gorgeous natural environment. Belle Soul Weddings says “Our inspiration for this shoot was to create a soft and airy feel, a boudoir session shot in nature that a true fine art bride would love. We wanted to inspire those brides who love the great outdoors and also the soft, natural fabrics of expertly made lingerie. We chose to use found foliage from the area in which we shot. We thought the leaves, branches and vines told the story of a girl caught in the moment.“
