Star Ranch Wedding // Lynnette+Gris // Corona, CA

 

 

There’s really no way to sum up this wedding. Or put it into words. Or properly do it justice by showing you a set of images from the day. It’s one of those, man, you really had to be there, kind of experiences. Their wedding was held at the Star Ranch but it was Lynnette and Gris who made it come to life. I’ve never seen a couple put so much of their heart and soul into their wedding day like they did. Gris is an unbelievable illustrator and Lynnette comes from a performance background. They built their own alter out of scrap materials, repainted and constructed their entire church, including purchasing a working vintage organ for the organist to play. The rustic nostalgic touch of taxidermy combined with western influences and the magical art from Gris made the setting and vibe feel as if you were on the couples property, for a backyard wedding. Lynnette and Gris are some of the most humble, kind hearted, brilliant individuals I’ve met, and I had the honor of documenting their wedding day. A big thanks to Green Wedding Shoes for featuring this wedding on their blog.

 

Enjoy.

This is easily the most unique wedding I've ever seen- and you seriously killed it with both your shooting and processing. So in love. Gothic chic.
