Brie & Joel’s wedding was as country as it gets and it was SO FUN! They decided to get married at Huntley Campground in Gold Beach, Oregon. Brie’s family grew up camping here so it has a special place in their hearts. They set up the ceremony right down by the Rogue River and had everyone bring their camp chairs and a drink with them! Brie & Joel have two cute little boys, Kolt and Lane and they, along with their great-grandmas walked down the aisle blowing bubbles before their mom! SO CUTE! The ceremony was short and sweet and Brie’s cousin officiated. There were a few jokes sprinkled in their vows in true Brie and Joel fashion. These two love life and are always laughing. And after their first kiss they had everyone raise their glasses in a toast!
Brie & Joel and I took a few minutes after the ceremony to get some photos of just them. We started walking towards the river and a tour boat came by! Brie & Joel waved and the boat slowed down so everyone could congratulate them! Then the reception started off with an amazing meal and toasts by the maid of honor and best man. Brie’s sister gave such a sweet toast and mentioned how grateful she was to Brie for her example of motherhood and how thankful she was that she found Joel.
Then the real party started! Brie & Joel had a combined bride/father and groom/mother dance before their first dance together and I could not believe how fast Brie and her dad were dancing! It was so fun to watch! At the end of the night Brie & Joel cut their cake and shared it with their kiddos! It was such a great day and I am so grateful I had the opportunity to share it with them. Congrats Brie & Joel!
