Nestled at the edge of the Texas hill county, historic Ruby Ranch Lodge was a perfect setting for Jennifer and Chris’ wonderful outdoor wedding.
You know it’s going to be a fun day when the groom, groomsmen and bride have this much character.
Buda Wedding Ceremony
One of the iconic (and one of our favorite) things about central Texas are the live oak trees. Their towing canopies give outdoor spaces the feeling of a cathedral. They made the perfect roof for Chris and Jennifer’s outdoor wedding ceremony.
With the ceremony ending around blue hour, we knocked out some quick formal portraits around the property.
Ruby Ranch Lodge has a done of great portrait locations. We always love taking advantage of a classic vehicle, whether it is pristine or rough. All the festoon lights create a wonderful glow after the sun goes down.
Ruby Ranch Lodge Wedding Reception
Ruby Ranch Lodge is built like a log cabin on the inside. It’s got a wonderful warm rustic feel.
“Not Pictures,” Jennifer loves her Dachshund and is an animal lover. In fact, we met her through my wife when she worked at the vet clinic. If you can’t bring the dachshund to the wedding, at least you can feature him prominently as part of your cake topper along side a selection of tiny tarts, cup-cakes and pies.
With all the official items out of the way, the it was time to party. The bride slipped into a less formal dress and everyone kicked back and hit the dance floor. With such a carefree crowd, it was a log of fun to witness (and photograph).
