Leslie & Ryan (A Wedding in the Woods at Canyon Run Ranch)


Leslie and Ryan shared a beautiful wedding day at Canyon Run Ranch. From start to finish their day was filled with personal, creative details that made their day so unique! The bride’s mother made the bridesmaids dresses, the groomsmen’s bowties, and the rug that Leslie and Ryan stood on when they said their vows. Each wooden box at the reception was made by the bride’s dad, and the table numbers were hand crocheted by Leslie. The seating chart was hand lettered, and the favors were individual homemade bourbon peach jams. 

When the bridal party walked down the aisle, they each held a wooden sign with words that Ryan used to describe Leslie, and it was such a moving picture to see them all lined up together. I’ve never seen anything like that done before, and I loved it! My other favorite part of the wedding was the florals. Every time I get to work with Sherwood Florist is such a treat, and Jessie is so talented at what she does! Leslie’s bouquet was what dreams are made of, and you can tell by the amount of images in this blog post that it was one of my favorites to photograph 😉 

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. McDermitt! Your day was perfect, and I hope looking through these images reminds you of the love you are surrounded with as you begin your new life together. Enjoy my many favorites! 🙂
