Once we made it into the reception barn after our ceremony, our bridal party and parents followed close behind. There was nothing to do but hug each and every one of them.

Soon after hugs were exchanged, we were beckoned back into the ceremony barn for family portraits. While many of these were posed gatherings of the two families, I’m only going to show you a few. I’m also going to show you a few beautiful moments our photographer, Tec Petaja, captured while making sure we were posed correctly. Man, is he talented at multi-tasking!
Grandpa and Grandma Cowboy Boot
I feel so blessed to have had both of them with us on our wedding day! And even more blessed to have had my grandmother sing for us!
Brother Cowboy Boot
He just got engaged!
The two families, united.
Mr. CB and his dad
Mr. CB was raised mostly by his dad. He even has his dad’s handprint tattooed on his back.

And my favorite of the portraits…
How did we get here?
Mr. CB and I road-tripped it to Colorado.
I spent a peaceful morning with my girls.
Followed by a rowdy bachelorette party.
Two days before the wedding, we fought.
Then, we made up.
On Saturday, Mr. CB recuperated while I hiked with friends.
We celebrated our rehearsal dinner.
Sunday Morning: The girls got ready.
And the guys got ready.
Mr. CB and I had our First Look.
Budget Breakdown: Bouquets and Bouts.
Portraits of the bride and groom.
Our wedding party braved the cold for photos.
We all lined up for the ceremony.
The wedding party walked (and performed hand shakes).
Papa CB walked Ms (soon to be Mrs.) CB down the aisle.
Our ceremony began with a song from Grandma Cowboy Boot.
And ended with a kiss.
