Outdoor or tent weddings can be really beautiful and there are always a lot of great photo opportunities when they are held in a park or a back yard. When it’s held on your family’s own farm or ranch it means you get to use all the cool props in your photos. It also means you get to have one awesome limo ride from the ceremony site to the reception site.

            There is something about a white horse that reminds me of fairy tales and magic. We certainly had the beautiful princess bride to go along with the theme.

And the when we bring in the hero of the story:

Of course the horse only adds to the magic by bringing in a bit of comedy.

I had a really hard time picking a favorite which is why I included so many here. I think this might be my favorite. What do you think?

The detail shots from this wedding were hard for me to choose too. They were really different and perfect for a country style wedding.

I love the look Jenna is giving her dad in this photo as they start the father daughter dance.

And speaking of looks. You can see where Joe gets his good looks and great sense of fun from.

Sometimes when we are setting up the more more posed or requested group shots, the really fun image is found by turning around 180 degrees. Tim was photographing Jenna and her bridesmaids when I caught this interaction of Joe and the groomsmen. The best man was going over his three page speech.
It was a pretty funny-no holds barred talk that he read aloud to all the guys. It got this reaction from Joe:

The actual speech during the reception, was edited and abridged and cleaned up a little

but still pretty funny.

Signing the marriage certificate required a bit of discussion.

It was a beautiful evening and the sky was gorgeous so we took advantage of that to take one more romantic photo of the two of them. Sure to be one of our signature “Classic Images“.

Like I said when it’s your farm, you can have as big of a tent as you want! And I think with a DJ, a band and this crowd……they partied til the cows came home!

Thank you Joe and Jenna for having us as part of your very special day. We wish you lots of love and a
“Happily Ever After”
Tim and Dana
