Ashley & Jason - Romantic Wedding at the Meadow Barn

Ashley and I met in front of a coffee at Scooters in 57th street on a random Tuesday after work. When she told me where her wedding was I jumped from my chair. Everyone knows I love shooting in barns, but the Meadow Barn in Harrisburg, South Dakota is something else.

Then she told me about her wedding plans. And her -SECRET- wedding plans; and I almost tear up. Her grandma bought a wedding dress 60 years ago for $50. Her mom got married wearing the same dress. She told her grandma she wasn't going to be able to do that because the dress didn't fit her. She lied.

After the formal photos, she changed into her grandma's gorgeous 1950's dress, and we did a "first intimate look" just with her. Her tears made us all cry. Ashley looked like a princess in both of her dresses. Her prince, Jason, was waiting for her at the end of the aisle. They didn't stop smiling all day, and even though it was probably the hottest day of the year in Sioux Falls, we managed to take gorgeous photos.

Judge for yourself.
