Happy Thanksgiving Week! We have another beautiful fall wedding for you today. We loved being able to capture this story at beautiful Gover Ranch in Anderson California. From the moment we met Katie + Ricky we knew their day would be filled with laughter and joy, and it did not disappoint. The day was a magical celebration, and we are so excited to share it with you!
I thought it would be fun to share some words from the Bride’s perspective. So my lovely bride Katie wrote up a bit about how she was feeling the day of her wedding. Enjoy a glimpse into this beautiful Love Story!
Shout out to an amazing team of vendors!

“If I can sum up my Wedding Day with one word, it would be; Heavenly.
After all the stress of planning my wedding by myself and making sure everything went to plan, it couldn’t have turned out better. That morning I didn’t have a nervous bone in my body, I was ready to finally marry the man of my dreams. After getting into my wedding dress and looking into the mirror I felt the most beautiful I have ever felt. I was surrounded by my family and best girlfriends, and realized the day was finally here!”
“I told Betsy that we decided to not do a “First Look,” but we did want to do a personal vow exchange before the wedding and say a prayer. As I turned a corner of a bush there he was standing facing away from me! It was so wonderful to see my soon to be husband dressed up and handsome. We exchanged our vows that we wrote to one another and said a prayer.”
“After that moment, I couldn’t wait to walk down the aisle! It seemed like it took forever to make sure everyone was seated so we could head to the barn, but once the girls told me it was time, I was excited!!”
“I waited for my song to come on. As I heard it start playing, my Dad walked me to the barn and as we turned the corner, there he was, standing there! Ricky had the biggest smile on his face! And I loved that all of our family and friends were in one room ready to celebrate this day with us! As I walked down the aisle, I heard people gasp and say, “Awe, How Beautiful! How Gorgeous!” Afterwords Ricky told me he almost cried seeing me walk down the aisle. The ceremony was beyond amazing, thanks to my long time best friend Nick who got ordained to marry us. And the reception was even greater.”
“I believe that if Heaven was on earth for one day, it would have been my wedding day! It was such a surreal moment being around so much Love and so much Happiness! The Lord definitely was surrounding us with open arms that day! Love was everywhere and in everyone! I cannot thank the Lord enough for blessing me with the best husband ever and the best day of our lives.”
