Whimsical Retro Ranch Nuptials

You'd be seriously hard pressed to take a look at this couple and not just smile. A big ol' grin that seems to take over your face. Because these high school sweethearts are simply adorable, and their wedding, captured by Whitney Darling, is equally so. There is just something about Retro Ranch that screams HIP, and by something, we mean everything. The cowhides, the carefully curated shelving, rustic antlers, and newly renovated barn make for a setting that is just plain cool through and through. 

Hillary and Matt's rustic outdoor celebration flawlessly incorporated a handful of popular wedding trends and executed them in a classic yet unique fashion. Hilary opted for a timeless, off the shoulder gown with lace detailing and paired it with one of our absolute favorite bouquets to date. Warm lush florals tucked into quaint wooden boxes sat atop round tables at their rustic inspired reception. And as night fell, the Reininga's blissfully danced hand in hand, as husband and wife, in front of adoring family and friends.

The couple's love story... "Hillary & Matt's love is the kind you pray your daughter finds one day. I can't think of anything more true. She met him at 15. Waited a long 7 years to be his beloved. She became the real life subject of her teenage reveries. Matt and Hillary met in the summer of 2007 between their sophomore and junior years of high school, and at the ages of 15 and 16, it was that summer that their story began. 

While attending different high schools, their newly acquired driver's licenses gave them the freedom to get Thai food in Laguna Beach, go to Disneyland and attend high school dances. After graduating high school Hillary left for nursing school and Matt worked full time while attending college, but despite the challenge of distance, they poured time and intentionality into their relationship. It was during this time that their relationship was strengthened and marriage was talked about more seriously. In January of 2013, Matt was in a motorcycle accident that reminded them that life is precious and spending it serving one another and their communities would be the most beautiful way to live. 

After asking for Hillary's parents' blessing, they were engaged in October of 2013 on a crisp fall day at the Lincoln Memorial, a remarkable and favorite monument for both of them. They were married the following July and celebrated under twinkle lights and alongside the ones who have a will continue to love and support them."
