Wedded Bliss at Triple J Ranch

Missy & Josh |  September 12, 2019

 

From the bride… We met online and two years later got engaged on Christmas Day. We wanted a simple wedding that was fun and comfortable.

THE VENUE

Triple J Ranch had it all. Each event at our wedding was in a separate location and within walking distance to the next. The ceremony was outside in a large grassy field with white fences and 100-year-old cottonwood trees. The reception was held in another building with roll-up doors and had a rustic vibe with dark wood tables and chairs. Seating was inside and outside, lots of candles and flowers accented the tables, and the food was served buffet style. Dancing was held in an 1800s barn, it was very rustic and romantic with twinkling lights, chandeliers, and big antique chairs to sit in while taking a break. We had lawn games for the kids and a big fire pit to cook s’mores. The 1800s saloon was open for drinks or to play pool for the adults.

THE CEREMONY

When we arrived at the ceremony I saw my son waiting for me in his Marine dress blues. I broke into happy tears and my heart wanted to explode out of my chest. Walking down the aisle with him was a special moment I will treasure for the rest of my life. When I locked eyes with Josh, he had a huge smile and started tearing up. It was another moment I will forever cherish.

One thing I loved most was filling our flower girl’s basket with petals from the roses Josh had given to me throughout our relationship. I had saved everyone and took the petals off the stems for the basket.

ADVICE

Enjoy every moment and live in that moment. I was so busy making sure everyone was having a good time, I missed most of my wedding. I look back at the pictures and think “where was I when that happened?”
