Tonya and Ryan – A Natural Wedding in French Lick, Indiana

We are excited at seeing this wedding in the current issue of ENGAGED! River Valley magazine as one of the Real Wedding features. Take a look at the issue below:


Tonya came to me wanting a natural, unpretentious wedding with fresh floral, simple white layered color palette and clean subtle signage and stationery.

When planning their wedding, they knew they wanted a place that was removed from distractions and allowed them to immerse themselves in the wedding experience and enjoy an intimate weekend with many family and friends who had come in from all over the country. Wilstem Ranch in French Lick, Indiana was the perfect choice with their rolling countryside, trails and cabins.


Having never done a wedding at Wilstem, myself and DayLily Events Wedding planner – Jamie Brewer (who also happens to be a dear friend) were excited to see what we could do with the unique, rustic, barn-like venue and the natural outdoor ceremony location.

We all settled on an understated look that reflected the couple’s taste of natural colors, elegant candlelight and fresh floral decor. Against the unstained wood and loft beams of the venue, it was a perfect compliment.


Never have I seen a couple so respectful and conscientious of each other’s desires. It’s wonderful to be able to work with people who share so much love.


Thank you Tonya and Ryan for letting me and my crew bring your wedding day visions to life. It was a beautiful and memorable wedding weekend.
