Rivers Bend Ranch Equestrian Mountain Wedding

All I can say about this shoot is I was truly blessed. I have been dying to get photos with a bohemian, rustic, equestrian vibe…so I figured I needed to plan a shoot. In all honesty, it was a leap for me. I was slammed with my full time job and weekend shoots but I really wanted to make this work. I was lucky to find an amazing couple and amazing vendors to participate in this day and it was glamorous. I have never met a nicer bunch of people in my life. It truly made the experience magical.

Let’s talk about how incredible this venue is. River’s Bend Ranch is set upon 360 degree views of the blue ridge mountains in Stanley, Virginia. It’s close to the most precious small town, and tons of hiking. They have a bunk house for rent with 10 bedrooms and stunning views, and 2 of the most precious little cabins. Longhorn hows and tons of horses add to the landscape.
