Jackie & Mike – 6.11.16

Down-to-earth couple, beautiful farm location, lovely outdoor ceremony, does it get any better then this?! It certainly doesn’t with all the many wonderful little touches that Jackie added throughout the day.  From the welcome sign when you walked in, to bride and groom cows, even down to little honey jar and milk jug favors for their guests!  You sense a theme going on here?  Mike is a dairy farmer! Farm couple meets stunning farm venue!

These two love birds have a very cute farm engagement story too!  While making a pit stop at their dairy farm on Christmas Eve, Mike had lit up a field with a BIG, “Will you marry me?” made out of rebar and Christmas lights.  How fantastic is that?!

The country rustic wedding theme was evident throughout the day.  The bride and bridesmaids donned some killer cowboy boots while the groom and his party rocked some fancy looking blue jeans. They had some touching moments too.  Jackie gifting Mike with a pin with Mike’s late mom, as well as a candle lighting ceremony for her with the family and even a sand ceremony combining Mike and Jackie’s love and families.

These two got married in a beautiful outdoor ceremony surrounded by friends and family. Despite the heat, there was a light breeze and sunshine streaming through the trees during the whole service.  They walked down the aisle with all their guests blowing bubbles their way. They received hugs and well wishes from everyone in a receiving line before they started their photo session.  What a lovely couple, day, and venue!  A photographer couldn’t ask for better! Dinner, speeches, cake cutting and dances were had!  How cool is it I could get up in the farms loft to take cake cutting photos?? A different view from the normal for sure!  With the little touches all over the barn and the stunning natural light streaming through the barn windows this was a photog’s dream. It was such an honor to get to photograph this wonderful couple’s big day!  Here’s to another 100 years of love for these two! And without further ado, Jackie and Mike’s wedding!
