Spring Creek Ranch Wedding in the Methow Valley

Claire and Ted wed in Winthrop

This Methow Valley wedding harbors a homemade, laid-back feel with a touch of elegance. The outdoor venue fits perfectly with the bride and groom's relaxed style. We can't get over the bride's effortless wrap gown, long flowing locks, and that gorgeous necklace turned headpiece (brilliant!). With a soft color palette and simple timeless details, the love and laughter captured by Ryan Flynn Photography truly was the focal point of this breathtaking wedding day.

From the bride and groom:

"We decided to get married in Winthrop after a road trip brought us up the Methow Valley in 2010. We knew that we wanted to get married there since it truly felt like the old west, and I'm not talking about the board walk and the miners museum. The warm light made it feel like the west, the rolling hills and big sky. We wanted longs days, and of course wanted a dry, outdoor wedding. We wanted to take our guests to a special place that they wouldn't have otherwise experienced if it wasn't for our wedding. We knew it had to be outdoors with a lot of open space. Spring Creek Ranch was perfect for just that. Large manicured lawn surrounded by alfalfa fields made it feel like our own farm. We also made of lot of the decorations ourselves. We wanted our wedding to feel simple, but timeless and elegant.

These are the same reasons we chose Ryan Flynn as our wedding photographer. His photos have a classic and vintage feel without trying too hard. We wanted someone that used different mediums - film & digital. Ultimately we wanted our wedding pictures to look just as good 30 years from now, and not look 'dated' by trendy photography methods. We also chose Ryan as our photographer because we felt really comfortable with him after our first meeting. He suggested meeting at an awesome bar, and we just left feeling like we had a lot of the same priorities. He was the first photographers we met with and we knew right away that he was exactly what we wanted. We wanted to be captured as ourselves without a ton of awkward posing, and Ryan (and his wife Emily) just stepped back and captured the day exactly how we remember it. "
