Weddings & Engagement
June 23, 2017

when you are an outdoorsy, woodsy, nature-y couple it only makes sense to gather your family + closest dear ones out in the canyon for your wedding day. Such is the case with Nick + Stephanie.

This darling pair had an outdoor ceremony and reception to match at the enchanting Oak Canyon Ranch. The two spend enjoy spending their time together camping, hiking and generally being outdoors. The details of their day incorporated many details that captured their sense of adventure including dried pressed flowers marked with national parks to theme each table, mini wooden trees as nameplates, gifts of camping tin mugs for the bridal party and the groom wore his favorite hiking socks.

The bridesmaids have all been friends for ten years so it was really sweet to see them rock girl power throughout the day. The ceremony including an emotional entrance with Stephanie and her parents + lovely handwritten vows.

Our portrait time included a mini four wheeling adventure that took us up the mountain for magic shots, yes magic.

This day had it all.
