BRENT + HALEY | Southern Illinois Intimate Country Wedding

In Wedding by estherbloom5 Comments

If I could just put it down in our contract that we must always include animals on wedding days that would be wonderful.  Cows, horses, & a sweet pup made this intimate wedding day exciting.  I had such a great time working with these two love birds and their closest family.  The two chose a beautiful spot in the country out in a field with a horse drawn cart.  It was simply beautiful watching the family congratulate the two & then afterward the couple chose to shoot with their wonderful cows.  As you can see ol Red decided she wanted her photo taken as well & my favorite was when they called up miss Caroline & she loved my scarf as well as the brides flowers.  She was the sweetest.  One of my favorite parts of the day was the fact that this couple included so much of their family heirlooms.  The fur Haley wore was a great grandmothers while the feathers in her hair were brought home by Brent on a trip.  The turquoise bracelet was the brides fathers & the veil her mothers.  She even wore her aunts boots while the friends & family cuddled under old family quilts.  Watching both families come together was such a blessing and I am so thankful I was able to share in this moment.
