From the Bride

Before I even was engaged, I knew that I wanted a Oak Grove wedding at SaddleRock Ranch. There are so many reasons why I wanted to get married in this magical place, but my biggest reason is that it’s an adventure. Jacob and I had loved adventure from the beginning. We originally met on ok cupid. So silly, I know, but I always knew that my soulmate would find me somehow. Thank goodness for the internet!

One of my favorite memories with Jacob was the day he proposed. Through his work, Jacob was invited on a trip to visit economic development, education, and health care projects in Kenya. Jacob had begged and begged me for months to come to Africa with him. Finally, he convinced me to meet him in Nairobi at the end of his trip. We were planning to travel in Uganda together and take a safari tour for a week.  It was a magical dream.

The safari drives were enlightened, filled with gorgeous animals and beautiful landscapes. We went biking in a zebra-filled national park. We were able to feed many African animals in a nursery for the little babies. And finally, we went hiking with gorillas. After one of our drives in Queen Elizabeth National Park, the guide drove us to a lookout point over the Great Rift Valley. We stayed there for a while, waiting for the sunset. As the sun started setting, Jacob expressed his love for me and asked “Uganda marry me?” Of course I cried, then I jumped up and down and nodded my head. I was crying so hard I couldn’t even say the word, “YES!” And that was start of our magical wedding adventures. What an amazing adventure we get to cherish!

~ with love, Negin

 


From the Photographers
It’s such a blessing that we were able to work with Jacob & Negin.  My husband, Dan, met Negin at his job over 10 years ago. Since then, Negin and I have been friends. When she reached out to me to photograph her Oak Grove wedding at SaddleRock Ranch , I was honored and humbled. I love being a close part of my friend’s wedding days. When a friend or family member wants to share that part of their lives with me, I feel like I am trustworthy to hold such special moments in my hands.
Negin was such a wonderful bride! Through h er day, many things did not go as planned, especially the weather. The temperature skyrocketed to 110 degrees, right in the middle of her wedding day. It was very hot, but even still very beautiful. Luckily, the ceremony was right at sunset. The twinkling lights
