"We were traveling to go pick up a tractor I had just bought. I noticed his sister was extremely excited about this tractor, and I had no idea why because she isn't a tractor loving kind of girl. We bring the tractor back to his parents place and his sister and brother in law were both there, again I thought it was strange because it was just a tractor that needed some work done to it so it wasn't anything special looking. Well we went inside for a bit then decided to go unload the tractor. Brandon asks me to get on it and try starting it, which I did without hesitation (not my first time starting a tractor). He then asks if there was anything on the key so i looked down and pulled it out to observe it more closely not even wondering why he would ask such a random question and that's when I noticed a ring hanging from it with a purple ribbon. Me being totally oblivious had the quickest thought of "oh no did the guy we bought it from accidentally leave this ring on it." Then after I quickly realized that my initial thought doesn't even make sense, I looked down and saw Brandon on one knee and he asked me to marry him! And come to find out his sister and brother in law were in on the gig because they were tasked with taking pictures and a video of the deal!! I was suppose to see the ring hanging from the key before I tried starting it but out of habit and bulky gloves I didn't even notice it was on there and I think that goes to show I was not expecting a proposal that day."
I love their proposal story! We took photos with the tractor during their engagement session!! Their ceremony was lovely! You can see the love and joy beaming from them as they shared their vows! "He said he loves my character and determination, I love his kindness and humor (and his eyes)!" Paige shared about what they love most about each other. The light was beautiful during cocktail hour, so we took the opportunity to capture a few more bridal party portraits. The toasts were filled with fond memories and love for Brandon and Paige. There were tears of joy as they celebrated Brandon and Paige's marriage. Lovely!! At sunset, we popped out for a few minutes to take advantage of golden hour in the vineyard. So beautiful! After the special dances, the party started. What a fun dance floor! In case you can't tell, this was such a great group to photograph!
