Following getting ready, everyone headed to Green Meadows Petting Farm to get hitched! Guests got to wander around to get to the ceremony barn to the calls of peacocks, and were also able pet goats, sheep, not to mention piglets, and even a baby kangaroo! The ceremony went off beautifully, with the bride riding in on her horse! These two even did their own lovely vows. After they kissed as husband and wife for the first time, they were led off to do photos with the bride’s horse, and then we headed down to the petting zoo barn to get some photos of Nicole bottle feeding a baby kangaroo, hold a baby goat, and pet the most adorable baby cow with huge ears! Her horse was even a bit jealous of the other animals getting pets and got in on the photo action!
It’s not every day I get to photograph a wedding at a gun range, with Miller Lite incorporated in wedding vows, a giant fake cow, and a bride and groom donning jeans and flip flops. But let me tell you, it was certainly a wedding I had a lot of fun photographing. This couple, Kristy and Ryan, were clearly planning a laid-back wedding that ensured that all of their guests had a great time . I heard many guests throughout the day say that this was one of the most fun weddings they had ever been to. From beginning to end, Kristy and Ryan kept everyone laughing, drinking, and having an all around blast at their wedding.
After getting ready, the couple and their party headed down to the ceremony area, a large oak tree hung with lanterns and lights, overlooking all the vineyards at Monterre Vineyards. Their children and dogs brought up the end of the processional before the bride made her appearance. Each dog had a sign, one reading, ‘I’m just here for the cake’ and the other ‘I loved her first.’ It was truly a charming moment, and left all guests laughing as they made their way down the aisle.
