We found ourselves at Ironstone Ranch several times this year, a place we like to call home. Kristen + Ryan were a couple we connected what feels like years ago and when they mentioned they'd be tying the knot at the Ranch, we knew we had to be a part of their special day. Our engagement session was spent exploring the city of Lancaster (they live in Philadelphia and us in Camp Hill had Lancaster being a great meeting place) and had a blast pursuing record shops and drinking delicious beers. Anyone who knows us, knows that this kinda of date for us was a match made in heaven. It was quite fitting that for our one month out we met at a one of their favorite corner delis in Philly to crack open some delicious brews while hashing out the details of timelines, family photos and planning for our creative portraits.
Coming up the driveway at Ironstone, the skies were gray and the air was full of mist. Kristen and Ryan were the COOLEST, CALMEST, COLLECTIVE couple ever. They embraced the weather and honestly sunshine would have been a bit of a bummer as Kristen's dress and accessories were some of the most stunning rustic vintage details we've ever seen. The moody and romantic day went off without a hitch. Please take a look their love story where a timeless bride married a true gentleman. The only way this could have been any better would have been if their bird Holly and pup Murphy could have been in attendance. They were probably busy throwing a house party while their parents were away :)
