Sunshine, hay bales and soul mates! Ashley and Landon asked me to capture memories for their special day and they made it SO easy to deliver. They exchanged vows on the family farm and left no detail unattended. From the plank seating across hay bales and the charming rustic decorations, to the cowboy boots and denim this was a country wedding through and through.
The guests milled about and enjoyed cold drinks out of mason jars while they waited for the big event, chatting and taking in the beautiful decorations and gorgeous setting. I adore everything and anything country, so this event was a feast for my eyes! The bride was stunning of course, glowing in love and excited to finally be marrying her soul mate among their loved ones. I was able to capture the look on Ashley’s face as her eyes met Landon’s for the first time, and it was magical.
One of the highlights of the ceremony though, was definitely their beautiful daughter Hadley. She happily walked down the aisle just ahead of her Mom and Grandpa in her adorable denim and lace dress and cowboy boots. Her blue eyes and charming smile had the guests grinning from ear to ear as the handsome little cowboy ring-bearer escorted her down the aisle.
We took the portraits of the new Mr. and Mrs. Hyvonen at the Brian Sutter Farm and Fields where there was no shortage of gorgeous scenery. Ashley and Landon were so easy going and comfortable, they were even willing to lay down in a canola field for some unique shots! We meandered through the fields and fences capturing the couple’s essence – home, country and comfort. Everyone in the wedding party was wearing touches of denim and cowboy boots along with their wedding finery! Even the bride was wearing her signature cowgirl footwear - although, in true country glam fashion Ashley’s boots had some unique bling to set hers apart from the rest.
The reception and dance was at the Bentley Hall, a rustic small town location to complete the perfect day! Thank you so much Ashley and Landon for allowing me and my secondshooter to capture these magical moments of your wedding day.
