Being a group of Texas girls, we can’t help but love featuring weddings from the Lone Star state. Lauren and John’s glamorous rustic wedding at Thistle Springs Ranch was inspired by the couple’s love of travel, using vintage post cards from around the world on each table at their reception. The exceptional Bradford Martens Photography was the perfect choice for capturing Lauren and John’s wedding, as Bradford’s style shines with natural elements, neutral color palettes, and sentimental moments. These images are absolutely captivating, and the contrast between dark and light will take your breath away.
Lauren and John
Thistle Springs Ranch, Cleburne, Texas
Since we are both passionate about seeing the world, we incorporated a lot of travel-themed elements: vintage globes, maps, suitcases. I went with neutral hues that would blend well with the green landscape and the wooden barn on the ranch.
The Couple Recommends:
Our invitation designer Haley Winn helped my step by step to design my perfect invitations and save-the-dates. Incredible work! Willie at Divine Catering was so, SO great at helping us pick our menu at a great price and the food was incredibly delicious. Finally, Ray Borden had such great energy and really knew how to cater the music to the crowd and to the mood.
