Lisa + Bobby
(October 3, 2020 in Deer Park, WA)
Todays blog post recounts a rancher's vision for her wedding, which was to feel southwestern and colorful with rustic and dried flowers and grasses. The wedding took place at the Barn on Wild Rose, and the bride let her florist's creativity shine through in her floral arrangements. On the day of the wedding, the couple branded a cowhide with their ranch's brand during the ceremony and focused on entertaining the kids with a tractor bounce house, camper photo booth, and ice cream truck. The bride's #1 tip for future brides is to stay true to themselves.
Lisa was absolutely stunning in our Alaina gown by Willowby. This two-piece wedding dress is made of the most stunning crochet lace that is a mix of geometric and floral patterns. The top features a gorgeous scoop neckline with a similar scoop shape in the back, accentuated by button details. Bell sleeves accentuate this boho look while the peekaboo parts of the lace add a flair of sexiness to this gown and the skirt features a stunning chapel-length train.
By our real bride, Lisa:
What was the vision for your wedding?
We are ranchers, so I wanted the day to feel southwestern and Aztec-colorful. Rust, emerald green, burgundy, yellow, white, dried flowers and grasses. I wanted the feel of our venue to feel like home and the Barn on Wild Rose was perfect! The lighting and the simplicity of it got me. I didnt know exactly how it was all going to come together. I choose pieces and let my florists creative mind come to play. Addison at FireHouse Flowers was so on point. I saw my flowers and got emotional. It was a fun surprise to let her be the creativity behind it.
How did it go the day-of?
The day was unimaginable. Ive been with Bobby for eight years. We have three kids, have lost a house to fire, have seen our daughter in and out of the hospital, and when I walked out and saw him before me I felt all the emotions and knew he is definitely my person. We branded a cowhide during the ceremony (with a live fire and brand iron) with our brand H5 on it to our ranch.
Bobby and Is main focus was to have entertainment for the kids so parents could enjoy and dance while kids were playing! We had a tractor bounce house, a camper photo booth, and an ice cream truck! The parents loved it because they said they could actually enjoy the day as well! So much dancing, so much joy and laughter; we all needed it!
What is your #1 tip to future brides?
Stay true to yourself! Let that shine brightly!
