Just north of Sacramento, California lies this incredible wedding venue, The Ranch At Lone Oak Longhorns. It not only features the most beautiful house straight out of a Magnolia Homes magazine, but is also home to some adorable Texas Longhorns. The house is available as lodging to their couples making it the perfect Destination Wedding Venue!
The Ranch at Lone Oak Longhorns is amazing in itself, but when you add a couple like Noah and Kaela it becomes the setting where a beautiful love-story unfolds. Now this isn’t just a blog featuring a few pretty pictures and detail shots. It’s a true story of love filled with many heartfelt moments and emotions from beginning to end.
We started with getting ready in the girl’s suite while the gentleman soaked up the sun. Kaela and Noah took a moment to write love letters before exchanging them in privacy. We then photographed Kaela’s Dad seeing her for the first time so more tears fell. Then the coolest part of the day happened when Kaela and her Dad arrived in a carriage pulled by a big Gray horse!! The ceremony was just as special since Kaela’s Grandpa took on the role of officiant. It was so funny when her Maid of Honor pulled him out of the photo for the first kiss. I had to leave him in it because I loved it so much! Then more fun happened when the cake came out…see for yourself!! The memories kept on rolling through the dance when Kaela thought the DJ messed up her Father/Daughter song. Little did she know her Dad surprised her with a sweet song he found that perfectly summed up his relationship with her since she was a little girl and long after he decided to adopt her. Yes, more tears…but they’re all happy tears!!!
