Well we did it!!! Anna and Jeremiah had a beautiful wedding thanks to many people. Jannie did all the flowers which turned out beautiful; I don't know what we would do without all her talent!!! Tim and Cheryl, my brother and sister in law came all the way from Montana and were a blessing to have around to help. My parents pitched in with all the excitement and helped also. Oh yeah... I cannot forget my dear husband who pitched in also and helped me stay sane the whole time.
I have photographed many weddings but this was my first one to put on. To tell you the truth photographing a wedding is sooooo much easier!! Things really did go smooth and there were only a few things that we...well I guess I should say I lost. Let me just say one thing, it is not a good thing to lose the ring bearers pants lol. I know I put everything together but somehow I managed to lose the pants. At the very last minute I went to get him some new ones, which by the way is really hard to find in our small town. I did manage to find some and rushed to the church. My poor little grandson went to put them on and couldn't even get them to button up, they were way too small! So, I sent the groom and his brother to exchange them. Something told me that was a mistake because not only was I sending two men to get pants for a little boy but I was sending the groom right before the wedding to do something that could possibly make him late to his own wedding. Well they made it back on time but the only pants that they could find for him was a size 18 and he is a size 10!!! Believe it or not we made it work, we called GRANDMA!! She brought the safety pins and the guys pinned them up.
I think that I should defiantly stick to just photographing weddings, either that or next time hire a wedding coordinator. In the end things turned out beautiful and the kids had a great time thanks to everyone that pitched in.
I would like to give a special thank you to my mother in law who once again made things beautiful. Your talent is amazing, your love in unending, and I couldn't love you more!!!!

- They always say you can take the girl out of the country but you can't take the country out of the girl. That's me,and now that I am back in the country I couldn't be happier! Thanks to God, we were able to move on to a 40 acre farm. Life on the farm is busy and we are always learning something new. My husband, Brett is the worlds best handyman. He was raised in town but I think that deep down he has always been a country boy. Together we are learning to raise cattle,chickens, and are even venturing into raising goats.We enjoy gardening and we are learning square foot gardening with the help of our mothers. We are striving towards self-sufficient living and hope to be there soon. Along with a passion for the outdoors and animals I also have a passion for photography. I have owned my photography business for about 13 years now. Nothing gives me more pleasure then to photograph a new baby or a couple getting married and beginning a new life together. I hope that you will join us as we learn new things and enjoy life on the farm.
