Darren and Lauren are a joy to be around. They are a playful couple, and a perfect match. We had a great time walking around the Oregon District in Downtown Dayton and I can not wait for their wedding this fall!
Tucked away into the woods is a place you wouldn’t even know exists unless you happen to see the small “Canyon Run Ranch” sign along a gravel road. A family run garlic farm turned its amazing property into a wedding venue for a day. This is one of the most creative weddings I have ever seen, and my camera and I were in love at first sight. There were so many fun shots, I got a little carried away with this post… but I just wanted to share them all!
The bride and groom decided to have their ceremony in the woods and had their guests parade to the ceremony site where a whimsical clearing among the trees waited for them. Hay bails held the guests and the sounds of soft bluegrass filled the air, compliments of the brides uncle. The ceremony was full of laughs and tears and a large parade made its way back to the reception, all the while hugging one another and laughing.
The large barn was restored and prepped especially for this wedding and the large white draping curtains added the final touch. The inside of the barn was full of woodland treasures, pies made by family members and even home brewed beer by the brides father. Large wheels adorned with mason jars and lights hung from the ceiling made by the groom.
There is no mistaking that this family is a talented bunch and that nothing is more important to them than love, laughter and family. I am so thrilled that I was able to be a part of such a spectacular event.
