Tiffany & Mark’s Story
Mark and I had met online 5 years ago, we talked for about a month before we decided to meet! Our first date was me trying to make chicken fettuccine from scratch and that was a disaster but it was and still is a good laugh! We spent every day together and got to know each other very well and became very close! I knew he was the one when he met my family and the way he interacted with them just made me adore him. He’s so funny and witty and so easy to talk to! He doesn’t have a mean bone in his body! We had talked about marriage a lot before we got engaged and he proposed to me at Disney under the fire walks on a restaurant balcony.
A Rustic Wedding Romance
Tiffany and Mark’s Wedding Day was one of the most romantic rustic weddings that we’ve had the pleasure of hosting here at the ranch.
From the moment she stepped off that horse drawn carriage, her gown of heavy lace and her beautiful floral crown set the stage for romance. As Tiffany walked down the aisle to meet her groom, you could tell by the look on Mark’s face that he was about to marry the love of his life!
The romantic feel continued as Tiffany and Mark vowed their love to each other under the large beautiful oak tree beside the lake.
After the ceremony, Tiffany and Mark boarded the carriage to spend the first few moments alone together as husband and wife. With a champagne toast and a kiss they were on their way…. It just doesn’t get any more romantic than that!
Springtime for a Barn Wedding
In my opinion, springtime is one of the best times of the year to have an outdoor ceremony at the Rocking L Ranch. The weather could not have been more perfect. Not a cloud in the sky and lots of warm sunshine to remind us that summer was almost here. But just as Tiffany and Mark began their first dance as husband and wife, a cool easterly seabreeze swept through the barn as if springtime was giving them one last gift.
I personally love springtime flowers as they are a such a beautiful mixture of bright and bold colors and soft romantic pastels. The flowers Tiffany chose were the perfect combination of both bold and pastel colors and shades. A beautiful reflection of a springtime rustic barn wedding theme. Tiffany chose sunflowers as her main statement flower, with a vibarant deep plum, vilolets and white accents of wild flowers. The arbor and aisleway arrangements popped with the vibrant colored flowers, arranged beautifully in the burlap and lace trimmed mason jars.
A Country Rustic Wedding
I don’t think a wedding at The Rocking L Ranch would be complete with out boots with dresses! The bridesmaids wore a gorgeous deep plum dress that came just above the knee and cowgirl boots, to set the stage for that perfect for the country rustic wedding theme. And we can’t forget the adorable little flower girl with her floral crown of sunflowers, the cotton lace dress and of course, the boots! The guys wore a lavender long sleeve button down shirt with a plum bow tie and tan pants that complimented the bridesmaids dresses perfectly!
A Country Rustic BBQ!
What is a Country Rustic Wedding Wedding without some good down home smoked BBQ?
Tiffany and Mark chose their menu of smoked turkey breast, pulled pork, baked beans, mashed potatoes with gravy and macaroni and cheese.
The food was delicious and the aroma of the smoker outside the barn kept the guest coming back for more!
After dinner it was time for a champagne toast and then on to cut the cake.
Tiffany and Mark chose a combination of a 2 tier wedding cake with cupcakes. The top was adorned with love birds symbolizing romance and sunflowers with a floral plum accent to tie into her springtime rustic wedding theme.
The wood slab cake stand and the cupcake tree stands were provided complimentary by Rocking L Ranch.
Let Love Sparkle!
Sparklers are one of the most popular ways our brides and grooms choose to close their reception here at the The Rocking L Ranch. Whether it be a sparkler send off or a last dance in the courtyard, Tiffany and Mark chose to end their evening with a last dance surronded by their guests, as the light of sparklers went bouncing through the air.
Congratulations and Best Wishes Tiffany and Mark!
