Our Panhandle Wedding: Part 2


Apparently, people really like seeing wedding photos. Lucky for me, I just so happened to have half of the festivities saved for another wedding post. Seeing as how it is now 10:40 p.m. on Friday night and I've had an eventful day of getting a pat down at the airport and my bags searched (thank you to Texas and the inability to provide a real driver's license right away. Darned paper!), I'm going to admit I'm taking the easy way out with this post. Tomorrow I'll do better, but tonight, you are getting wedding photos, again from the fantastic Allyson of Originallyson Photography. Seriously, check this gal out if you are need any kind of rustic/country/farm photography. She took whatever we threw at her in stride, from horses and cotton fields in our engagement photos to a soaking wet Ranger dog and 100 degree heat on our wedding day. And she always makes us look good, which can be challenging!

Last post, I shared photos of getting ready, our couple portraits and wedding party portraits. Tonight, I'll share some from the actual ceremony and reception, as well as our family portraits. Here's a few details on our wedding...

  • Our ceremony and reception were held on Royce's grandparents' farm, where the family has been farming for over 100 years. Royce is the fifth generation on this farm.
  • Seeing as how agriculture is a huge part in both of our lives, we decided to have our family and friends join us on the farm. We had the ceremony outside on a grass corner and the reception in the new machine shed they built last year.
  • Wheat is my favorite crop so I had it incorporated throughout the wedding, from my bouquet and the flowers to our "wheat ceremony." I'll explain that another time.
  • We had steak for supper because what good Texas Panhandle rancher wouldn't serve steak at his wedding?
  • At our reception, we definitely had an old Gleaner combine parked behind the guestbook table... And it was awesome!
  • We honestly couldn't have pulled this off without the support of our family and friends. Y'all are seriously the greatest, and thank you for making this day everything I had dreamed of!
Overall, we had a great time celebrating, and it was so special to share our farm with everyone for our big day. You don't get much more ag than that!
I cannot thank my friend, Teal, enough for her work setting up the ceremony. It looked so great!


The face every bride wants to see at the end of the aisle - pure happiness. 

This face... Not so much.


Thanks for that nice gust of wind, Texas.

  1. My package for the reception included passed hors d'oeuvres, premium open bar all night, and a 3 course sit down dinner. When we walked into the dining area of Wedding venues, I was blown away.
