After a long photo blogging hiatus, I’m back to share some more photos from Sheridan and Justin’s wedding a few weeks ago in her grandparents’ pecan grove near Humboldt, Kansas.
This wedding was so personal and everyone in the extended family had a role in the wedding or a job to do behind the scenes. It was such a big group effort, and the families made it a lot of fun that day! Sheridan was absolutely one of the most calm, stress-free, easygoing brides I have ever seen — despite the torrential thunderstorms, muddy ground and mosquito-ridden grove, she said, “Let’s do it!” and the outdoor wedding was on. The day couldn’t have turned out any more perfect.
Here’s Sheridan getting an extra dose of bug repellent:
Pecans were everywhere — such a great personal touch!
The connection between Sheridan and Justin was so awesome. Check out this series of photos:
Everyone in the bridal party entered in an old vehicle. Here’s the bridesmaids’ transportation:
Instead of a unity candle or sand symbol, they chose to use…what else?…pecans! Sheridan poured in whole pecans, and Justin poured in the seeds. So great!
The flower girl and ring bearer, in the back of Sheridan’s grandpa’s old truck:
Dubbed “The Pecando,” this is a tree house-like structure on the property. This is also the dwelling where Sheridan and Justin decided to spend their wedding night — in sleeping bags, enjoying the outdoors…
Little did they know, Sheridan’s mom had devised a plan to turn the Pecando into a fully-furnished suite! Here they are on the hand-crafted bed, holding “His” and “Hers” pillowcases that were a wedding gift to Sheridan’s grandparents 50 years ago!
The handcrafted bed was made by Sheridan’s uncle in less than one week — right before the wedding. It was made of limbs from the pecan grove!
The quilt and bedside table:
Thanks so much, Sheridan and Justin, for letting me capture your special day! Have fun in the Peace Corps!
