Real Wedding at the Heart of the Ranch

This is Libby. This will sound crazy, but she is the most laid back, yet meticulously organized bride that you have ever met. She can make a timeline that would make any planner proud. 


This is Charlie. He proposed in the middle of City Park in Colorado, and flew in their family for a surprise engagement celebration.

This is their dog, Berkley, who is part of every major milestone in their life. I mean, the floral collar. Excellent touch, no?

Now meet the bride and groom. Not only are they ridiculously good looking, the kind of relationship they have, full of humor and laughter, is ridiculously fun to be around.

Before I met Charlie, though, I met Libby's family at our consultation. Let me tell you - this family is the most welcoming and organized bunch you've ever met. They get things done!

Libby and Charlie chose to save their first look for the moment when she walked down the aisle. Instead, Libby reserved a first look for the men in her family. This photo truly showcases the love and union that I got to experience during their engagement journey.

Also, during one of our first meetings, Libby says to me "Oh, my cousin will be doing the photos." Come to find out, her cousin is THE Kat Harris. Joy to the world. 

Libby and Charlie chose their venue at the Heart of the Ranch because y'all, it's a gorgeously hidden plot of land in Fort Worth. A true outdoor oasis. Setting the reception in a clear top tent and incorporating floral chandeliers and greenery courtesy of Moss Floral made the transition from ceremony so seamless.

The ceremony site is another treasure. You get to enter from this magical opening in the forest. Again - my heart soared because Charlie walked down the aisle with both parents. His family is another level of love and laughter. Libby's mother was escorted by BOTH her brothers.

OH! Another thing Libby told me in our meetings "Oh. My dad is going to build us some things for the wedding." Y'ALL. By "things" - freestanding wooden bars with marquee lights, cake stand, welcome table and a honest-to-goodness donut wall.

Spoiler alert - Libby and Charlie's celebration was filled with love and family and ended in happiness and included lots of dancing, and tears, and sparklers. The end.
