Hurst Ranch Wedding Video Experience
How many times can a person say that I’ve met my husband when I was five years old. And not only just met them but became BEST FRIENDS! The mother of the bride spoke of the moment she knew that her baby girl was going to be taken care of: “Once he found that perfect one, we were standing there. And he broke down in tears and he told me how he had loved Brooke his whole entire life.”
“You are my kindergarten sweetheart.”
Throughout the whole wedding day at Hurst Ranch, Michael and Brooke were fun and in love with one another. The anticipation to see each other and taking a moment to read each other’s letters before the wedding ceremony gave Michael and Brooke a moment alone separately. They had the chance to remember how far they have come and take it all in before they exchange their vows in front of their family and friends.
Unique Hurst Ranch Wedding
After the ceremony, cocktail hour began and Hurst Ranch offered a train ride for everyone to ride around the property including the lake. This unique experience entertained Michael and Brooke’s wedding guests while they were taking family and wedding party portraits with Elias Pasillas Photography. Elias did a great job photographing everyone within the cocktail hour timeframe keeping the wedding timeline on time.
Having a wedding venue like Hurst Ranch that offers a ceremony site and reception area makes the wedding timeline smoother. However, the photographer has control of the wedding timeline up until the start of the reception with the exception of sunset portraits. Working alongside a photographer who is diligent in keep time on the wedding makes a wedding day go smoothly and keeps the bride and groom stress free.
