Andrea & Justin tied the knot on a perfect day in August.  I know, I know…August.  I feel like I’ve been blogging about August weddings for weeks now but I guess that’s what shooting 9 weddings in one month will do.  What a month it was too.  You’ll know what I mean as soon as you scroll down and see this jaw-dropping wedding.  It was not only our first wedding at the new High Lonesome Barn at Devil’s Thumb Ranch but it was also one of the first weddings ever at this stunning new venue.  I absolutely love ranch weddings for their sprawling meadows and rustic lodges.  Then add a gorgeous couple like Andrea & Justin and you have all the perfect ingredients for a beautiful, flawless day.
