I’m pretty sure these two planned the most laidback, country wedding I’ve ever photographed. The ceremony took place in their field, with gorgeous views of the mountains as their backdrop, and the reception was in the barn on the property. Their details were rustic and colourful, and the whole day felt like an extension of them and their personalities. What made this location even more special, is that Monique’s parents actually bought this farm from Richard’s grandparents, and that’s also how these two learned of eachother’s existence! They didn’t see much of eachother through school, but at a housewarming party Monique was attending, Richard showed up, and Monique was like “Man, has he grown up!” and her 2nd thought, “I really like his beard”. haha! Facial hair, ftw 😉 That was the beginning of their story, and obviously it all went uphill from there!
