Wedding season has officially began here at Alison Marie Photography! Although I had an elopement earlier this year, Ariana & Jose were my first “big” wedding of 2019. And it just so happened that they chose to host their wedding at the always gorgeous and top favorite venue of mine… The Ranch Golf Club in Southwick, MA! Ariana and Jose had the most beautiful day. Sunny and warm!! After this crazy rainy and cold spring we just had, they certainly hit the jackpot. Their original plan was to have their ceremony indoors, but that quickly changed once they realized how gorgeous the day was going to be!
A Ranch Golf Club Wedding
Ariana first met Jose when she took a second job at a restaurant where he was working. After a year of pursuing her, Ariana agreed to go on a first date and the rest was history! Two years later, they got engaged in front of their family and their wedding planning began. Ariana and Jose’s search for a venue that could give them a rustic yet timeless wedding led them to The Ranch Golf Club. They chose The Ranch because of its natural surroundings, gorgeous views, and the location which was central to Ariana’s family. They also loved how beautiful and unique The Ranch’s barn is and knew it would comfortably accommodate all of their 125 invited guests.
Ariana and Jose chose to do a First Look… the emotions were running high!!! Look at the love between these two!
Gorgeous Landscape at The Ranch Golf Club
There are many reasons why I love The Ranch but one of them is the amount of different places we can go on the property for gorgeous pictures. The landscape is just amazing here!! Another reason why I’m a huge Ranch fan is because you can do it all here. From getting ready, to the ceremony, to portraits and family formals, to the reception. Done!
