Spring Wedding | Ryan O’Dowd Photography

Ryan, with Ryan O’Dowd Photography, has outdone himself once again! We are always blown away by the beautiful images we receive from him. We love how he knows Rustic Grace Estate so well, but still seems to bring a very unique and personal approach to each and every wedding. Ryan even had the extra bonus of a gorgeous day and amazing sunset to compliment this wedding day. We just love all of these photos from John and Holley’s special day, and hope that you enjoy them, as well. Check out more work from Ryan O’Dowd Photography on his website and social media pages!

John and Holley were probably one of the sweetest, most loving couples we’ve had the pleasure of getting to know! They were smiling and laughing with their friends and family all day long, and you could just feel the love and support surrounding them and their new marriage. Not only are they a beautiful couple, but they sure know how to plan a wedding. Every little detail, whether simple or significant, worked together to create a fun and lovely atmosphere!

We loved the navy blue table runners over the ivory linens in our 1920’s rustic red barn. We always think that navy compliments the old wood and touches of red so well! We also adored the unique light blue shade of the bridesmaid dresses and how they complimented the groomsmen’s navy tuxes so well. Besides the splashes of color with the décor and attire, John and Holley kept everything pretty simple and let the venue speak for itself. In our white vintage chapel, the only piece of décor was a wooden “welcome” sign. With all of the windows showing off the property, there is already enough natural beauty that not much is needed in the chapel. We love the natural look that just allows the outdoors, reclaimed wooden floors, and natural light to shine!

We were so excited and honored to share such a special day with John and Holley. Thank you for choosing Rustic Grace Estate, and happy one year anniversary!

A special thank you to all of the wonderful vendors who made this day possible!
