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 bride and her maids readying for the ceremony
The Groom and Groomsman coming from a little pre wedding “prep” at JJ’s
The beautiful bouquets!!
The ring bearer and his Auntie waiting for his big moment!
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

The Officiant “Aunt Karen”

Wine created especially for the occasion by our great friends from Marilyn Remark Winery here….http://www.remarkwines.com/ My son in law created the label design from a picture I took.
Wedding Day Brews crafted by the bride’s brother and sister in law…yes they are amazingly talented!! Believe it or not the guests drank more beer than wine because they were so interesting!
