Emily and Jake had the most perfect day for their fall ranch wedding at Spruce Mountain Ranch. The weather cound not have been better and on top of the gorgeous day they had, there was a stunning sunset that evening. It stayed warm into the night too, which was great since the dance floor was outside. Jake and Emily met on the dating app, Bumble and Jake proposed on Valentine’s Day, after a nice dinner out. They wanted a simple rustic wedding, with a modern flair.
Emily and Jake’s Spruce Mountain Wedding
I love this venue because there are so many incredible outdoor spaces and so much variety. First, these two had their first look in the lush gardens on the property. The ceremony overlooked sweeping fields and rolling hills. After they tied the knot, we did their newlywed photos alongside a small lake and in front of the mountains. Then, their reception was out of Spruce’s back patio, under the dazzling twinkle lights. I had a lot of fun getting creative with the dance photos! I used my cell phone in front of my lens to reflect the twinkle lights so they completely surrounded the gorgeous couple. Later, I also ended up standing up on the railing to get some wide shots through the market lights of their first dance.
At the end of the night, they were supposed to have a glow stick send off. We planned it all out and Emily was so excited for it! It turned out that the glow sticks got misplaced and didn’t make it to the wedding. Emily was obviously upset so I did some quick thinking and found a solution. The catering company had a late night snack of french fries so we had everyone grab a cone of fries and throw them at the couple as they left the venue! It totally worked and was pretty hilarious too. They definitely won’t forget these last moments of their wedding!
