Adrienne and Reuben are two of the nicest and most genuine people you’ll ever meet. They’re also about as ‘country’ as two people can get. If you don’t believe me, try this on for size: Their wedding color was hunting camo, and the flower arrangements all featured pheasant tail feathers!
We drove down the long gravel road on the outskirts of Corvallis and as we pulled up to their old farmhouse it was like being transported back to a much simpler time. We were completely surrounded by wheat fields as far as we could see with cool old barns and outbuildings dotting the landscape. The scenery made for a gorgeous wedding and some amazing and unique photo ops, it was like a photographer’s paradise!
Pictures were going perfectly until a chance encounter with a Garter snake in one of the barns. Luckily my life was spared and once I calmed down, photos resumed. We spent the afternoon hiking through the wheat fields, scaling fences, and trekking across meadows – I love it when a bride and groom don’t mind puttin in a little hard work for good pictures! Even the groomsmen were great sports, although I’m sure that had something to do with the fact that they got to have pictures taken with their shotguns.
It was such a beautiful day and Adrienne did an amazing job with all the details. I especially loved the dance floor built out of old barn floorboards, the barbed wire centerpieces, and the all-country songlist that played late into the evening.
