Clinton + Ashley | Austin Agricultural Museum Wedding

photo of groom kissing bride on the cheek

Brandon couple Clinton and Ashley were married during their country wedding at the Agricultural Museum in Austin, Manitoba.  I first met this cuddly couple during their snowy engagement session earlier in the year.  I knew we would have a fabulous time on their wedding day as they were so easy going and willing to show their emotion towards each other in front of the camera.

The joyous bride wore a silky halter style wedding gown with her cowgirl boots.  She carried a rose bouquet with a locket in memory of her Grandmother around the stem.  The groom wore a turquoise collared shirt, black suit jacket with blue jeans and his white cowboy hat, you might remember seeing it in their engagement session.

The beautiful summer ceremony took place with a vintage red barn as a backdrop, it complimented the turquoise accents of the day amazingly.  Portraits took place all throughout the gorgeous museum location, there was no shortage of spots to place these two as they fondly looked at one another.  A highlight of the day was when the couple took photos with their horses, just breathtaking.  We wrapped up formal photos just as the wind rolled in and a rain storm hit…talk about perfect timing.

At reception time, the crowd tried their luck roping a faux bull in order for the bride and groom to kiss…let’s just say the crowd had a healthy amount of guests who have been to a rodeo more than once, so there was lots of smooching going on.  The night ended with special messages from the bride and groom playing during the couples first dance.

TRUE LOVE was definitely a theme of the day and I’m sure will last throughout the life these two build together as husband and wife.  Thank you for having me capture your special moments during this first day of your marriage.

Leave Clinton & Ashley some love , if they get 25 comments on this blog post, they will receive a complimentary 8 x 10″ print from their day!

    It is always such a pleasure to read articles created
    by real professionals. I am fed up with that no-name,
    ghostwritten articles. That’s why it was so great to take a look at a persuasive piece.

    I visit the writer has floor knowledge it the subject as well as some practical experience.
    This sort of information is always more valuable than copypasted
    blog articles ideas.
