A Circle Oak Ranch Wedding – Sophia + Ryne Married!
Sophia and Ryne were married over the weekend at the jaw-droppingly beautiful Circle Oak Ranch, which sits amidst the rolling hills and is covered with majestic oak trees, one of which is placed at the bottom of an open meadow and made for the perfect ceremony location where they said their vows. It was one of the warmest days of summer this year, but nothing could keep everyone smiling from ear to ear at this incredible celebration of two people so perfect for each other.
These two first met when Sophia interviewed Ryne for a job. He was instantly attracted to Sophia and, as her brother who officiated their ceremony put it, decided to stick around for her. They both started to find excuses to be around each other as much as possible, and it didn’t take long before they became inseparable. During Ryne’s vows he shared that he is still constantly trying to make excuses to be with Sophia all of the time, because she brings out the best in him. Something I have really noticed about this sweet couple is that they are not only madly in love, but have such a beautiful way of interacting with so much respect. I was deeply honored to be chosen as their wedding photographer and I am now thrilled to be sharing their special day with you!
Sophia arrived to the bridal suite with her ladies after they had hair and makeup done at South Coast Winery in an adjacent city. They came in the cutest matching robes, and so we had to do a toast before she got dressed!
Ryne and his guys enjoyed hanging out in the groom’s suite as well until it was time to get ready and go see his bride. They opted for a first look and got all of their photos done before the ceremony so they could enjoy their cocktail hour, and it was so great to see them enjoy extra time with their guests because of it!
After Ryne and Sophia had dinner they snuck out for a few sunset photos atop the hill of the property, and it was so incredibly beautiful!! All of us from the photo and video team were having way too much fun up there, but we knew we had to get them back to the party. If you just keep on scrolling you’ll see why!
The rest of the night was filled with so much fun, which was the theme of the day that they were going for. Their number one priority was to make sure everyone had a blast and nothing felt too scheduled. After some amazing speeches and dances with parents, they all hit the dance floor and had the time of their lives! I kind of wanted to stay afterwards and join them, it was that good!!
Sophia and Ryne, thank you so much for having us and for treating our whole team like honored guests on your big day! You were such a joy to work with and are an incredibly beautiful couple inside and out!
A big thank you to the team who made it all possible…
