J & J's FUN Ranch Wedding!

This wedding was SO much fun! It made me want to have my wedding all over again. I had been excited about shooting this wedding ever since I did the bride & groom's engagement session. They are so much fun and very laid back. I'd love to share some of the shots of the bride in the bathroom before the ceremony when she had her dress off, but she'd probably kill me. ;o) So, these will have to do for now.

This cake was so beautiful... and very yummy. I kept smelling the frosting everytime I walked by. It was torture.
The location was amazing! I loved that the bride was willing to head into the middle of the wheat field for these shots.

This family loves their ATVs so we just HAD to include them in the portraits.
The guys arrived to the wedding ceremony on their ATVs. It was GREAT!
Then they all left on their ATVs after the ceremony. They had a golf cart there for the bride but she opted for the back of her man's ride, dress and all.
Now THIS was a father-daughter dance! It was a western swing dance and let me just tell you, they can SWING!!! It was so much fun to watch.
Probably one of my favorite shots from the wedding. The ceremony was at 7:00pm and it was an outside wedding so by the time the reception started it had started getting dark which just added to the ambiance of the whole event.
I left at 11:00pm and it looked like the party was just starting to heat up.
Congratulations J&J!!! You really know how to throw a party!

The pictures are just amazing and I can't wait to see all of them. It was such a wonderful day for all of us and something that was only made possible with the help of lots of family and friends from both the bride and groom's family. We have such special memories and are so thankful that we found such a great photographer to capture those memories forever. You will be highly recommended for sure!
