Brooke and Joe held an intimate country rustic themed wedding ceremony in their back yard. It was filled with giant, beautiful sunflowers and equally brilliant smiles despite the downpour that happened during the reception [which was quite a hit with their young daughter]. A little ways down the road from their wedding is a big red barn and even more sunflowers, the owners were kind enough to let us use the property as a gorgeous backdrop for their photos.
Joe proposed to Brooke by making a list of stops that included the place where they first met, first date, first kiss, and the hospital where their daughter was born. He had Brooke’s friend drive her to around to each location and at every stop there was a friend or family member with a rose and a card for her. The last stop was the duck pond where all of her friends and family were waiting to watch the proposal!
