Travel Inspired Wedding at Thistle Springs Ranch

January 20, 2015 | nicole

Sentimental-Wedding-Thistle-Springs-Bradford-Martens-39

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.

The Couple:

Lauren and John

The Wedding:

Thistle Springs Ranch, Cleburne, Texas

The Inspiration:

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.
