Riven Rock Ranch Wedding :: Amanda & Zan

July 20th, 2011  |  Posted in weddings

Amanda and Zan’s wedding was perfect in so many ways.  Riven Rock Ranch in Comfort, Texas is a truly remarkable place.  Perched high above the Guadalupe River overlooking the Texas Hill Country, Riven Rock Ranch manages to perfectly combine the ruggedness of the region with luxurious resort touches, creating an exquisite setting.  Add the talents of Tricia Hamil of Viridian Design Studio and you have the magic formula for a beautiful and personal celebration.   The exquisite setting, the beautiful details, the flawless execution – while wonderful and what we all dream of for our wedding –  Amanda and Zan’s  spirit and willingness to embrace the unexpected is what made their wedding perfect!

Zan is an advid golfer and had planned to kick off the wedding weekend with a day of golf with his buddies, but a couple weeks before the wedding he broke his ankle.  It was a nasty break and he’d be immobile for weeks.  We shuffled our plans and timelines for the wedding day portraits to accommodate his limited mobility.   Schedules are the easy part.  I was secretly concerned about how it would all impact the wedding.  Certainly neither of them imagined Zan hobbling through the wedding weekend.

I should have known better than to worry!  I am blessed with amazing clients that understand their wedding day is so much bigger than the décor and details and, well, if there’s an unexpected pair of crutches and a wheelchair thrown into the mix, you simply embrace the challenge and make the best of it!

I mean, who can’t relate to the “middle school sway” for the couple’s first dance and I dare your heart to not be melted by Zan and his daughter dancing in his wheelchair.

Stay tuned for Part Two of Amanda and Zan’s wedding.  I’ll be showing you some of the fun details and more of the amazing Riven Rock Ranch.

It was a hot day and what better way to cool off after outdoor portraits than to stand in front of the fridge. Brilliant!
