This Country Chic Cowboy Wedding at the Last Stand Guest Ranch in Sonoita was detail-driven and pure joy.
The rustic wedding details that the bride and her tribe made happen for the wedding were on-point and fit with the Cowboy Wedding theme – all country, all rustic elegance. I really loved the cotton that featured in the centerpieces – so clever!
The bride and groom got ready at the Last Stand Guest Ranch in Sonoita AZ. The bride wanted to do a first look with her father, and she could barely hold back the tears. Mom was bawling as she watched. The first look with Casey and Cale happened right after that, and was equally as sweet. Ans maybe a few tears as well.
The ceremony took place by the lake with the guests sitting and standing on hay bales to watch it all happen. It was a very bright Arizona afternoon, but thank goodness for the Cowboy hats that hid all eyes from the sun. After the ceremony I had this idea for sunset photos along the road that led into the venue, so I drove off with the bride and groom for one of the best sunset locations I think I’ve ever experienced as a photographer. Epic. It reminds me of the countryside in Corona, in Riverside CA, which is also horse and cowboy country. I am always amazed at the similarities between AZ and CA.
This wedding was a true family affair. Friends and family from all over pitched a tent, pulled up an RV, and pitched in to help with details. And when the sun went down the party was in full swing. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more crowded two stepping line dancing dance floor at a wedding.
Congratulations Casey and Cale – may joy be ever yours.
