Wedding on Family Farm :: Walsh, Colorado :: Millie & Ben

There are some couples you’ll meet in life and you’ll think to yourself how perfectly matched they are. Millie & Ben are one such couple.

Since both the Bride & Groom live in Texas, I hadn’t had the pleasure of meeting either of them until we rolled up to the family farm in Walsh, Colorado where we were to photograph their intimate wedding. We were honored to be present and happy to be able to capture the wedding day moments for them.

Even though the wedding was small it was no less magnificent. With Millie’s artistic direction, Millie, Ben & their family lovingly decorated the wedding site. And Ben’s contribution was no less than the impressive handmade altar he erected for the occasion.

Without further ado, I present the photos from their wedding day.

Millie & Ben share a moment. Love this shot.

I came around the corner to catch up with Millie & her dad and caught him snapping a photo of the two of them on his phone.

And I’m guessing they saw the photo and were pretty amused by it.

These two weren’t short on smiles or laughter! :)

I always love capturing the moment when the Dad passes along his daughter to her soon-to-be husband.

The wind was ridiculous that day! It was blowing constantly up to 40mph. I’m so happy I was able to get some shots without hair in Millie’s face. How adorable is she? :)

And nearby was a beautiful wheat field that stretched on for miles.

      Thanks, Ruby! They were great to photograph and it was awesome to be on Ben’s family farm because he had already picked out some photo spots he wanted to shoot at. The beautiful backdrop just made the photos of them all that much better!
