Morgan and Dakota met at a school dance when they were thirteen. Morgan declared “he’s mine” that evening, but insisted that one of them had to be able to drive before they could start dating. Eventually the day came and they were inseparable for the next five years, finally tying the knot in a fall wedding on Thanksgiving. As two farm kids who now have a farm of their own, their rustic country wedding was a fitting celebration of gratitude and of the harvest.
Morgan’s childhood home buzzed with excited energy that morning. Flowergirls sat for their hair and plaid-clad bridesmaids did their makeup, joking around while mom and grandma looked on and the bride made a fried egg sandwich. After gifts for everyone, it was time to head into town for the ceremony. The beautiful church was full of joy and song as Morgan and Dakota pledged their love to one another.
The late autumn sun shone bright and warm as the wedding party boarded the party bus for photos, offroading across a freshly harvested field to a gorgeous old barn near Morgan’s farm. After a quick stop at the Bruno Post Office to recreate Morgan and Dakota’s first kiss, it was party time! From antiques and sheaves of wheat to a barnwood backdrop and even some barbed wire, their wedding decor was a true nod to their mutual heritage. The speeches and slideshow brought both laughter and tears, and the party continued late into the night with a wicked band and a busy photobooth!
Morgan and Dakota’s love and devotion to each other is something to aspire to. Wishing you (and baby Whitney too – what an exciting year!) a lifetime of love, laughter and happiness.
