Ashley and Colton Celebrate Their Engagement Surrounded by the Charming Rustic Elegance of The White Sparrow Barn

From Kirstie, the photographer: 

“Ashley and Colton are about the sweetest pair you’ll ever meet. These two are actually tying the knot on a cruise with friends and family this year! Because they will have a very low-key wedding with a smaller amount of photos than a traditional big Texas wedding, they decided to go classic with an engagement session at The White Sparrow Barn in Quinlan, Texas. They brought their dog Benji and had the barn all to themselves for their winter engagement. Ashley opted for a soft pink dress to maintain a feeling of timeless elegance while Colton wore dark blue to complement. The bouquet by Ruibal’s Plants added rich green and brown forest-like hues to add a touch of rustic whimsy to the shoot. These images were shot on 120mm Fuji 400 film and developed by The Find Lab.”

Once Wed was launched in March 2008 to meet a need in the marketplace for an online listing service for second-hand wedding dresses. Within a short time, the company had developed into an online wedding publication and resource to provide newly-engaged brides with inspiration and tools to plan their dream wedding.
