Rustic-Chic Spring Wedding at Old Glory Ranch

Whitney and Zak’s picture-perfect spring wedding at Old Glory Ranch was the very picture of elegant simplicity. “Old Glory Ranch is so beautiful that it doesn’t need a lot of decorations” says bride Whitney. “The elegant rustic setting of the outdoor patio along with the beautiful spring creations and centerpieces were all that were needed to evoke the perfect atmosphere.” She adds, “Our wedding was all about spring, family and being in love. I have always been a bit of a free spirit. I love being by the water, being outdoors, and I love flowers of any and every kind.” Wimberley’s Old Glory Ranch offered all of these elements, to which Whitney added vintage family wedding photos and filled the celebration with her favorite music. We hope you enjoy these beautiful photos of Whitney & Zak’s wedding as much as we did. Best wishes to the newlyweds!
