Because we all know that I am a sucker for farm weddings, it would only seem fitting that my first wedding post of the year is none other than guess what! A farm wedding!!!
We couldn’t have had a more perfect day weather wise for Ashley and Trent’s big day!! I was fortunate to have the lovely Jeannine Hamilton shooting with me, so we hit the road bright and early to make our way to Ashley’s family farm in Durham County.
Ashley’s mom and dad and whole family put a ton of work into getting the farm ready for the wedding and it looked absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! The Fish family no longer milks cows, but even had a few token heifers in the field to add a splash of black and white to Ashley’s dream wedding on the farm!
Ashley and Trent are also big on trucks, tractors and 4-wheelers so there were lots of wheels that made cameos throughout the day…including Trent’s pride and joy…his pick-up truck!! (Side note: While writing about the truck, I realized that their beautiful engagement photos were never blogged (apparently I am a slacker!!), so you are all in for a treat, because I will also include a handful of my favourites from their e-session at the end of the post!)
Jeannine and I had a lot of fun with Ashley and Trent and their families and friends…heck we were even included in the bride and groom kissing game…a trivia game where wrong answers were rewarded with having to select a wedding guest name out of a bucket and kiss them. As Jeannine and I discussed that we could not possibly be included since we would need to photograph the fun, guess whose name was pulled! Hint: It was not Jeannine. That quickly answered the debate of whether we were included or not!! Haha
Ashley and Trent are laid back, fun-loving, country people and their party reflected just that!! There was an awesome dinner catered by a BBQ company that rolled in in their food truck, a band that got the party started, speeches that were some of the most entertaining I’ve heard in a long time and of course, the fireworks to cap off the night!!!
We had an absolute blast and were so honoured to have been a part of their big day!! Congratulations Ashley & Trent!!!
And, for those that haven’t seen their e-session photos:
