So I have a bit of a crush on this bride, not only because she is completely gorgeous, but her style is just my favorite. Her stunning BHLDN gown, the wreath details and rustic touches, and the fact that in every photo she is barefoot and beaming with joy — what’s better than that? Nothing, but the rest of this Saddlerock Ranch wedding from Heidi Ryder comes close.
Some details from Heidi Ryder:
Megan grew up in Alabama and wanted to pay homage to her laid back southern roots. She spent the entire day barefoot because it reminded her of running barefoot outside during the warm Alabama summers. Her flower crown and simple but gorgeous BHLDN dress completed her boho look.
The decor pulled in elements of Southern charm and Hollywood elegance with rustic, dark woods, succulents, eucalyptus and olive leaves, lavender and gorgeous peonies, garden roses and anemones. Guests took home precious jars of honey and enjoyed dinner and dancing under a giant oak tree adorned in strands of twinkle lights. Their first dance started off sweet and slow and then, as a surprise to everyone in attendance, they busted out a choreographed dance (complete with the cabbage patch and running man) to Barry White’s ” You’re My First, My Last, My Everything.”
The ceremony was beautiful and started with an epic moment where their entire bridal party walked together to the ceremony as one big group so as to hide the bride until it was time for her to appear.
Oh man, did I tell you? How cool does that ceremony entrance sound? Love that idea. And I would have been a bridesmaid in this wedding in a heartbeat! I love that some bridesmaids carried bouquets of lavender and others carried floral wreaths to tie in with the other wreath details. Like I said, crushing over here! Congrats to Megan & Brian, who are coming up on their one year anniversary!
