Three Weddings and…..

Many of you have asked that I post some of the pictures from my daughter’s wedding a couple years ago.  Since it is wedding season I thought I would do a short series about three family weddings I was involved in.  First up my daughter’s wedding at our home and on the range!!

The wedding site in it’s raw integrity…the arbor was built by the bride’s brother and father (and still stands out in the pasture) we thought about decorating the arbor…some things are better left to nature…

The bride was escorted to the site in a vintage pink caddy by “Uncle Mike”
The Groom and Groomsmen in route to the ceremony
Custom “Cornhole” designed and constructed by the bride’s brother for the guests to enjoy pre wedding out in “the pasture”…Ry Ry enjoying a little game manuevering

  10. CIndy, I am in awe of all you did for this wedding! Gorgeous. I love every single little bit! The tables with the yellow stripes, and the buckets of flowers were just darling..Especially love the ceremony in the open there and looking toward the mountains. You transformed your driveway into such a festive and pretty spot! Looks like this was a whole family effort of love and it shows. How fortunate you are to have such a talented and close family! The bride looked so beautiful and I loved her dress and the bridesmaids dresses and colors!

    I am going to pin a bunch of these!
