I shoot at the Ranch quite frequently and it’s beautiful all times of the year… but you cannot beat a Saturday in October! The vast open views of the rolling hills are even more amazing when they are full of color!
Naturally, I started off the day in the bridal suite with Raena & her girls.
Did you know that the Ranch’s wedding package include the Farm house bridal suite? The suite has multiple spacious rooms to get ready for your special day. No stress of going to different places to get hair and makeup done. No stress of being late to your ceremony. I talk all about The Benefits of Having your Wedding in One Location in a previous blog post.
Raena and Ricky chose to do a first look, which if you’ve read my blog before, you know I’m a huge fan of doing a first look. Ricky waited patiently while Raena arrived at the meeting spot. There were some happy tears, but honestly they could not stop smiling once they saw each other!
If you’re not super big into tradition, I always recommend doing a First Look prior to your ceremony. A First Look can really help reduce wedding day stress and help you feel more relaxed during portraits. Read more about what a First Look is and the benefits of doing one in my blog post The First Look Explained.
The Ranch Golf Club
I can’t say enough great things about The Ranch Golf Club. It’s such a beautiful barn venue to get married at in Western MA. Because it’s a golf course, the grounds are always immaculate and there are numerous places to take portraits and family formals here. The outdoor ceremony space is private and beautiful too! Raena chose the perfect fall flower – sunflowers – for her bouquets and décor. They looked amazing during the ceremony and in their portraits with the yellow barn in the background. I’ve photographed many, MANY weddings and engagement sessions at The Ranch over the years and each and every one has been amazing and so memorable – including Raena & Ricky’s! The Ranch is the perfect venue if you’re looking for a barn wedding with a rustic yet modern elegant feel.
Thank you so much for allowing me to capture your beautiful wedding day Raena & Ricky!! I wish you all the best in your new life together!
