{Emily & Mark @ Bakers Ranch}

Emily and Mark have 2 wedding #s.  #lucasgotlucky and #markandnoodlesoup Emily's nickname is noodle because she likes to eat spaghetti noodles with sugar on top:-) The girls arrived in these super cute aqua and lace robes.  Emily's mom, Julie,  helped her get in that gorgeous mermaid, lace gown.  When her bridesmaids saw her, they screamed and cried and laughed all at the same time!  While this was going on the guys were upstairs playing pool and hanging in the groom's lounge.  They did a first look on the love lock bridge and literally they didn't stop smiling from that moment on.  The ceremony was under crystal chandaliers with white and pink florals.  Their dog was of course the ring bearer and wore a little sign that said "I loved her first":-) Emily's mom  shared a few words about how happy she is that Emily and Mark found each other and that she will miss the days of having Emily and her girls over for Mac and Cheese:-)  Their bridal party was so much fun as we used the gorgeous setting for photos of them after the ceremony.  The reception was draped in white with aqua and white linens, lantern, and crystal.  The escort cards had little keys tied to them and custom koozie favors for their guests.  I love the layered white and floral accented cake that of course had the Cake Zone's cupcakes (with the famous raspberry frosting!).  Emily and her maid of honor, Megan, have been friends since elementary school and she shared the sweetest toast to Emily and Mark.  Mark's dad, Kirk,  and best man, Ryan gave their toast together about how lucky Mark is to have found such an amazing girl! It was such a fun party and we are so lucky to have gotten to capture it as well as work with all these amazing people that made it perfect.  Congrats Emily & Mark!!! xoxoxo

Bakers Ranch

The same day we got to be a part of the Bakers Ranch Grand Opening we also got to be the first ones to photograph couples in some of the beautiful spots on the property.  The prettiness is worthy of it's own blog posting:-) Our models were actually Alla and Boris' son Alex and his wife Erin (which is extra special in itself) and Nolia (who works for Alla) and her husband Sam.  Kandice and I each took a couple and had some fun with the 3 gorgeous ceremony sites. This outdoor setting is really a photographer's dream! Here's some of our favorites:-) We are beyond excited to work with Bakers Ranch and their couples!!
