The Ranch Golf Club Wedding | Sarah + Andrew

Happy Friday everyone!!  Today I am sharing Sarah and Andrew’s extremely loving, super beautiful, rustic barn wedding with you.

Get excited! 

Sarah and Andrew planned SO many amazing personal touches, orchestrated one of the MOST FUN dance parties this little wedding photographer has ever seen, and even had a pretty awesome sparkler exit.  A few things I absolutely adore about these two … how much they love each other (you’ll see what I mean when you scroll through the photographs), Sarah’s dimples (seriously, she has a crazy beautiful smile!), and Andrew’s panama jump (I don’t even know how to explain it’s awesomeness in words, just trust me … it’s both hilarious and freaking awesome!).

I am pretty sure Sarah smiled all day … don’t blame her, her ladies were ALL hilarious!

Sarah, I LOVED your dress, the lace, the neckline … so, so, so beautiful!

The ladies 🙂

I love how attentive Sarah’s girls were with her!  Sarah didn’t have to worry about a thing, which on your wedding day is so important.

See?!  She’s still smiling 🙂

The detailing on Sarah’s dress was so elegant.

Meanwhile, the guys were back in the choir room of the church getting ready.  Don’t be fooled by what looks like a calm, reserved group of men … keep scrolling … and you’ll see what I mean 😉

Andrew’s Mom gave Sarah a sixpence for her to wear in her shoe, so sweet!

Ceremony time!  Sarah was escorted by her two bother’s.

Love this series … honestly I was tearing up while I edited these … I mean I’m an emotional person and I am also now planning my own wedding, but I just was so taken over by how much love and joy that is going on here.

Sarah’s Grandmothers … one of which is 101!!!

I adore this moment with Andrew and his Mom after she lit the unity candle.

I am not sure these days which moment I love more … the first kiss …

… or when they are officially Mr. & Mrs.!

You two make me smile, a lot!

 After the ceremony we headed to The Ranch Golf Club for the pictures and the reception.  I love this image of Sarah’s girls prepping her for pictures.

The Bridal Party <3

Okay, I will be honest … I had a really hard time selecting which image of the girls to feature …

… so I featured them all 🙂

I love the simple elegance and the texture of the bridesmaid’s flowers against the coral dresses.

You can’t go wrong with men in bow ties!

While I was with the girls, Katlyn worked with the guys … love this, you all look so handsome!

They weren’t afraid to show a little leg 😉

Ladies and Gentlemen, I introduce to you, the panama jump in all it’s awesomeness and glory!  Too funny!

Sarah and her siblings wanted to join in the the fun, lol!

You two are adorable together.



One of my favorites!

Love the in-between moment caught by my new intern, Jess!  And, Andrew, you were a SUPER handsome groom, just sayin’!

A couple in love + evening light + tall grass = PERFECTION!

Another favorite … see what I was talking about?!  They have so much love for each other!

Gah!  Love, love, love this!

The Ranch offered so many beautiful backdrops …

Okay, seriously, at this point I might as well admit that all these portraits of Sarah and Andrew are gush worthy … love the light here.

Sarah’s friends sang at both the ceremony and during the cocktail hour.

First dance!

Their cake and some of the center pieces were decorated with flowers from Sarah’s Mother’s garden.

I love the tall baby’s breath.

Along with flowers from her Mom’s garden, some of the vases, like this one, were made by one of the bridesmaids!

Want to find a way to get everyone out of their seats and onto the dance floor?!  Hire The Hightone Ramblers with Tony Parkes as the caller … seriously!  The dancing at this wedding was amazing!!!

I think you could say that their guests had fun with the sparklers!

Thank you, Sarah & Andrew, for inviting me to capture your day!!  It was spectacular and a true honor 🙂

Much Love,

Lindsey Rae
