Paris and Andy’s beautiful Greenhorn Creek Guest Ranch Wedding was SUCH a pleasure to photograph this September. It happened to be one of the hottest days of the summer, but that didn’t stop anyone from having the time of their lives!
I love finding out how people met – especially in the age of online dating. These two actually met on a ski lift in Salt Lake City…can you believe that? What are the odds that the love of your life might hop on a ski life beside you? Andy then proposed 7.5 years later at the Conservatory of Flowers at Golden Gate Park. It must have been so romantic. If you’ve ever been there, you know how beautiful it is! The rest, as they say, is history 🙂
Paris and Andy’s Summer Greenhorn Creek Guest Ranch Wedding
The day started as Paris and Andy prepared in their cabins at Greenhorn Creek Guest Ranch. After “icing” her bridesmaids (such a funny new tradition and I love it), Paris and Andy shared their first look. I’m always a fan of the first look, and theirs was held in a gorgeous corner of the ranch. I love their portraits from this part of the day.
Then, we brought their whole wedding party out for portraits and did family portraits before the ceremony as well. Speaking of their ceremony, you can see by the tears and smiles that Paris and Andy had amazing vows for each other. I have to admit I shed a tear or two during the ceremony.
The coolest part of their Greenhorn Creek Guest Ranch wedding ceremony was how the horses were released to run behind the pond during the kiss. It sounded like thunder and it was more amazing than I could have imagined.
A gorgeous Greenhorn Creek Guest Ranch Wedding Reception
After the ceremony, it was time for dances, toasts and wild moments. I had a TON of fun capturing fun photos of the festivities. We also took a few moments to take some cool post-sunset portraits in the most beautiful soft light of the day.
This was a wedding day to remember and I am so excited to share just a snippet of my favorites from Paris and Andy’s amazing Greenhorn Creek Guest Ranch wedding below! Enjoy – and cheers to Paris and Andy!
